I was really unsure of this quilt. Once the top was completed, I really didn't know if my fabric choices were okay. You know how judges on shows like Project Runway tell people they "question their taste"? Well, I was definitely questioning mine. But the one thing I do know about quilts is that you usually can't judge them until they are done. (Which stinks because by the time you are quilting it, you've already invested a lot of time and fabric in the project!) But the quilting really makes all the difference. I was still questioning myself after it was quilted though. Then I added the binding and it has grown on me.
The pattern is the Wonky Log Cabin. I love anything wonky, because I'm not exactly known for my ability to cut straight lines. Now I can pretend I meant for the cutting to be a little uneven.
Regardless of my taste, I'm proud of myself because I set a goal to get this quilt done within the month. I carefully counted out the weeks until my deadline, and assigned myself steps to get done each week. Even though I was often frustrated with the look of the quilt, I pushed on and I finished it four days before my deadline. It feels good to get done, and have one more quilt under my belt. With each quilt I make, I feel like I learn something. What did you learn the last time you sewed a quilt?
