When I pulled out earlier this week, I discovered that what I do have done I am not happy with. I can tell that I rushed through it and there are seams that don't match up and there is puckering. I know what I have to do -- the dreaded seam ripping..... otherwise I will not be happy. I HATE seam ripping.
I'm sure that when I was just sitting on my bedroom floor thinking about this project and looking at it it might appear that I was doing nothing. But actually I was trying to figure out "Now what." I considered throwing it away and start over - I have enough fabric. I also considered leaving it alone and just finish it. But today, I won't do either, today I will start ripping and rethink how to put this together better.
That is the problem for me when I am not following directions. This quilt is in my head - derived from 3 other quilts that I took a little of this and that from. So there are no directions and that is my problem. I get frustrated because I don't feel I know what I am doing and then I just get impatient.
I also considered putting it back away and doing something else - Lord knows I have enough projects I want to do. I might still consider that as I go pick up my seam ripper.
