Work in Progress: Tumbling Blocks Wall Quilt
George Will said the pursuit of perfection often impedes improvement. He's right. I was getting a bit demoralized at seeing some not so parallel lines and at all the bits and knots of gray bobbin thread coming up to the front from the back. And so that's when I stop sewing for the night.
Then I come back to the quilt and find charm in my unsophisticated stitching and resume again. Besides getting better and realizing what to do differently next time is where all the fun is.
The back is a hot mess, but I'll take some time to pull and snip these loose threads.
And being close to done is better than being perfect.
