I consider myself to be an accurate cutter and careful piecer, but just look at this seam join.
If you are a regular blog reader you will know that sometimes this really irritates me, and I have to try to fix it. I take apart a problematic seam, realign the pieces, pin everything in place, and resew the seam.
I cannot for the life of me figure out why this is not much of an improvement from attempt #1!
I have a personal rule that I will give a task my best effort 3 times, and then call it "done" no matter the outcome of the 3rd attempt.
Here is attempt #3.
Does it look improved in any way?!?
After all that effort, it should be lining up perfectly! Sometimes it just doesn't. And no matter how much effort is put in or how well the task is done, it just doesn't work. Now there's a good life lesson for me!
So, I continue on with trying my best to get this quilt top together, and deal with the frustration when the outcome doesn't reflect the effort. Why is it that some quilts go together so effortlessly and others are so challenging?!?
My friend Louise (remember when we went to see Ricky Tims?!?) is coming for her annual winter visit and we will talk every waking minute for the entire weekend. We will solve all the problems of the world, and we will feel renewed after our time together.
And maybe this quilt top will get completed!
