Finished at last!


This was a UFO for two extended periods. A part of me likes it, a part of me hates it. I'm SOOOOO happy to have finished it. I will not go into any of the sordid details, but this quilt is an example of all my worst quilting traits, which rarely accumulate all in one quilt, but this time they did. I am totally ashamed of my workmanship and general all around sloppiness in the rush to get the thing done. I promise one and all that I would never treat a sensate being, not even a tree or dandelion in the yard as badly as I have treated this quilt. I am going to give it to some charity although I consider that almost morally reprehensible because needy people do not deserve to have our mistakes dumped on them. And yet, it is a warm cover, the pattern may delight some eyes, probably childish ones. I am not signing the quilt in any way. And I won't -- I swear -- do this sort of rush job again, even to get a UFO out of my sight, out of my house.

It's still a beautiful quilt, and anyone will be pleased to snuggle under it. Congratulations on finishing a UFO. Major accomplishment.

Looks mighty fine to my eyes. The cool hues at the outside edges are a delightful surprise. Somebody will be thrilled you made it.

You are much too hard on yourself! You've probably just been looking at it for way too long. I think it's marvelous, and some lucky person will really appreciate it!

I can't see any of the alleged mistakes you talk about. It looks stunning to me. I love the colors. and the pattern. We can't do everything perfectly. No one else will be the wiser.
