Doomed spring flowers:

I give in! How can a person get worse at something the more they try. I always believed practise makes perfect, unfortunately not in this case. I have progressively gotten worse at quilting. I have once again ruined another lovely quilt with my appalling attempt at layering and quilting.  I am heart broken because I truly love the fabrics and the colours in this quilt.  I am so upset at my inability to be able to layer and quilt, be it machine quilting or hand quilting my tops. I think its time for me to take a step back from quilting for a while. My apologise for this being a rather doom a gloom post.

Better to be finished and warming your family, than waiting for your skills to be "perfected".
I bet it's gorgeous, don't be too hard on yourself xx

Susan said...

Thank you ladies for your lovely comments. They are very much apreciated xxx

Susan. The quilt looks gorgeous. Do you have to hand quilt or would some stabalising be sufficient?
Don't be too hard on yourself, you are so good at many other aspects of this wonderful art that the rest of us can only aspire to!

Hi Susan,
I love this Quilt, did you design it yourself? I am sure you will crack the quilting of it. I am here if you need any help.
