So I asked a new question...
"If I was going to spend some time working on this quilt, and I could pick three things to change to make me like this project more, what would I do?"
I picked 3 problems to work on and put a little red clip by that area as a reminder of the change I want to make.
It's a start!
I also reread the instructions. Do you see the words "practically impossible"? HA! That's exactly how I feel!
Love these instructions!
