So I'm reading, and expecting to roll down and see something gawdy.... but I love it.   Totally something I would be proud of.

I really like it and it doesn't look like you rushed at all! You should be proud of it, we are our own worst critics... I have been going with the phrase of "do you think anybody will notice?" Smiley and 9 times out of 10 they dont! Be proud of it, you did good.

Disappointment?! I think it's great! I'm struggling through my first quilt now and if my final result is anywhere near as cool as yours I will be thrilled.

I know too well about making something and then being disappointed because it didn't turn out the way you expected. Sometimes crafting is like that, it can be unpredicable. But what's important is that just because it wasn't what you imagined, it doesn't mean it's not a wonderful piece of work. It's hard to appreciate your own work when it's been a frustrating process, but you need to step back and look at it with new eyes Smiley Like everyone else has said in their comments, this is a great quilt and you should be proud of what you've made SmileySmiley it deserves a much higher status than rug..

But you are right, quilting is a process not to be rushed, but enjoyed. And doing this project taught you that lesson. Just remember, it's thanks to lesson-learning projects that we grow and develop as into experienced crafters SmileySmiley

So much creativity..
So little time...

I have an Epla-shop for my paper bead earrings (it's like Etsy, but in Norwegian):

I got a bunch of small already pieced squares from the woman that gave me my current stash.  I had a couple days over spring break, so I thought I'd piece them together, and that it would be easy peasy.  False.  Nothing turned out with a good right angle, even the backing cloth I bought (at Joann's though, so what was I expecting).


Perfect right angles are for machine-made mass-produced blankets! Quilts are supposed to have character and always remind the person using it that it's handmade Smiley

I love it!  Really pretty!  Just because it didn't turn out the way you planned, doesn't mean it didn't turn out GOOD! Wink
