Oh boy, what a mess the middle of this quilt is……
This is a quilt I name Fusion Civil War Diary Quilt. I was going to load it on the long arm last summer but I didn’t. It is really a hot mess. I loved making each block so much but putting it together on point was not easy. It had several areas that didn’t lay flat. Points are cut off… all in all I was nearly ready to throw it out. I didn’t because I have so much time and energy invested in it.
My Mom helped me trim up the edges and load it on the frame. I started a small feather on it. Ugh, thread breaks at first, tension problems. Now I am at the 3/4 done mark. I have had to massage the heck out lumpy spots. I have had to avoid super thick intersections. I have really been challenged and frustrated but I have to say… I love this quilt. I think that it is looking pretty cool even though it will never win a quilt show.
Life lesson, do what you love. Not every quilt needs to be perfect to be awesome!
