I have been agonizing over doing the quilting on a "good" quilt. I went back and forth about doing it myself, but I'm not good at it, so do I not do my better quilts myself or do I just make quilts that are suitable for a panto for now? I started the quilting and I thought it was so bad that I almost gave up. "If I quit now, I can take out the stitching I've done so far and have someone else do it."
Wow, that is some defeatist thinking. I finally decided that it's my work, all of it, good or bad. The feathers aren't great and who knows what the rest of the design will turn out like. But it's mine. I'm not going to get any better if I keep putting off working on real quilts.
Here's hoping that each one will be better than the last.
