Quilting

I finished cutting all the pieces out last night for the quilt (except for the binding). My quilt pattern did not specify the seam size . . . super annoying, because I definitely guessed wrong and had to rip out a bunch of stitching. Oh well. Live and Learn. Even with the continual sew, rip out, sew again groove I'm in with it, I'm still having fun. The nice thing I'm finding with quilting is that you can do a block and feel accomplished about it. Unlike other projects sometimes that depress you if you can't finish it in one sitting. Each block is like its own little project so with my little spurts of time, its almost like you get to see a new finished product each time. Yay for instant gratification! I've already made some mistakes with it that I can't really fix (or maybe I could, but the mistakes are not big enough that it would be completely worth it). I'm kind of ok with that. I correct what I think is worthwhile and feasible and I'm not sweating the rest. It's only my first attempt at a quilt after all.
