It had been stalled at the stage of figuring out the quilting design in the sashing and borders. Nothing was quite coming together and the frustration quotient was way higher than the enjoyment of my hobby, and so it went into the UFO closet for a time out.
After reading Amy's post last month, I brought it out again and forced myself to work through this challenge. And one of the things I've noticed over time, is my increasing ability to say "that's good enough". So what if the math didn't quite work out, and the angles on the squares are often not 90 degrees, and there are a few issues in the quilting at the cornerstones (ie they are all different!)... it's all okay.
I give credit for the improvement in my healthier thinking to Angela Walters. Although I am not usually much of a perfectionist in any realm of my life, I have noticed a change in my quilting this year in terms of expecting even less perfectionism of myself. I notice less use of the seam ripper, less posting photos of my mistakes on the blog, and more acceptance of the "design opportunities" (formerly known as mistakes) as they occur.
