The Quilt That Did Me In.....

Six months plus, of selecting fabric, cutting the fabric, sizing up pieces, piecing the quilt, putting it down because I wanted to add more fabric, taking it apart because I didn't like, trying it again because I thought hey this can work, right, I mean it looks cute right....

so I took a good long look at it from this angle.....


and then from this angle........


and even thought about standing on my head to see if from that angle it would look cute when I realized I needed to throw in the towel with this one.  I clearly wasn't in love with it and I couldn't present it as a gift and expect someone to care for it if I didn't.

So all of this partially pieced quilt will be retiring indefinitely to the dustbin.... 


Lesson learned....contemplating standing on your head will not make a quilt look better, it will just give you a headache.

All that hard work! But, at least you found out way early and didn't finish it before it was too late. :) Now you can start fresh and the next one will be great!

It would have looked beautiful! I'm sure you would have made it work but you're a perfectionist like someone I know and love like you too.
