For me quilting is just for fun. I don't even worry if I finish a quilt. Someone at my estate sale will finish them someday..........giggle.
You ladies are awesome! Encouraging and not critical. Understanding where I am coming from, since you have been there. I am not quilting for competition, just self enjoyment. But, I also want them to look nice.
I am kind of funny. When I choose to do something, I jump in with both feet, not thinking about the fire I am jumping into at the moment. What is really weird, I hate sewing! LOL But for some reason, I am enjoying quilting. It is different than weaving. I crochet also, but really do not like it. Weaving is my favorite.
Thanks Carol Lee. As I do more quilting, I can look back and see how far I have come. I am aware that everyone has to start at the very beginning and the first 100 or so, will always need improvement. No one is perfect, especially when they are just learning. I am in the beginnings of my learning curve. Even after weaving for 6 years, I am still improving my technique.
We all like DONE!
Keep it up Carol B. I strive for completion as opposed to perfection. Too much stress in everyday life to get upset with my quilting. When I see a real mess, I'll fix it; if not that big a blunder, I tell myself it will still be a warm quilt. I didn't learn to quilt for competition so my laid-back style keeps it enjoyable.
My 1st quilt, in 2001,was a King Size quilt made with the wrong kind of fabrics and no knowledge of what I was doing. Everything that could be done wrong was done on this quilt. It is still on my bed today and I am as proud of it as I would be for an award winner, because I did it all by myself! CP from TX
Thanks Evelyn I needed that. It was a very testy way to learn, but I would not quit, even thought 'it could have been better'. I took out and resewed so many seams it is not funny. After I finished the top, I saw there was a major misalignment, and ended up taking most of it apart, down to the individual half triangle squares. Oh what a mess. But It is done. :)
It is completed and hanging on the wall. It could be better, but this is what it is.
Hi Evelyn, We are waiting for clearance from my Internist's OK, but hopefully in the next 2-3 weeks. It will be done at the Surgery Specialty Center on I-10 in Houston. Part of my problem is quilting, part of it is a 5 year old fall off of a Military Parade Float, and part of it is just old age! Carol
