After toting this quilt around to about 4 different homes, it is finally done! I love to do projects, but a big problem that I have is that I am a huge perfectionist. When I was little I would vacuum my room everyday. I wouldn't let people sit on my bed if it was made because I didn't want it to have wrinkles in it. Luckily somewhere while growing up, I chilled out a bit. I still like things to be just right though.
This becomes a hindrance when I start a project that I am really excited about, and then just can't finish it for fear that it won't turn out just how I picture it. It sounds crazy, but that is how my little mind works.
I have many different crafting projects starting to loom over me in our closet, so I decided to begin to finish all of them...perfect or not. This is my first feat. My dear friend Emily made one of these quilts in red and white Pottery Barn bedding material, I was obsessed so I had to make one. So I went to the "last chance" downeast home strore in West Valley and picked up some Pottery Barn bedding and went to work. Years later, here is the finished product. (The funny thing is the only piece I had to finish was the binding!) Once it is washed, the little circles fray and it is a nice addition.
So here's to one down and many more enticing projects to go!
