    Your art quilt is really amazing. I love the colors and the quilting is so beautiful. You did a fantastic job despite all the roadblocks. (Actually, I find screaming at my machine works wonders sometimes–not for the machine, but for me, LOL) Thank you for sharing.

  2. I love the solution that you came up with for the made fabric…it’s totally out of the box thinking. How many of us have stepped into the pitfall of procrstination.

  3. I enjoyed your sharing the entire process with us. It truly proves that we should never give up! – I also sympathize with sewing machine problems as I experienced similar frustration when, at the same time, both mine decided to stop working properly a while back. Your journey led you to a great quilt. Love the quilting!

    Being a perfectionist sometimes is a drag. Sometimes you just have to “let go” and live with little imperfections, otherwise, life can be overwhelming!

    The results are wonderful! I love the way you made the background! I’m going to try this with my Shimmer scraps. Procrastination is one of my bad habits and something we all do at times.

  6. All worked out in the end. Our machines can be so frustrating, and always at the worst time. I will keep your story in mind while working on a deadline project.

  7. I really like this quilt. I always do my bindings by machine. I’ve done it for years and must say I am very good at it. So keep doing it and you will be amazed. I agree with all your 2017 resolutions you learned in making your quilt.

    • Thanks Nancy, I will continue to work on my machine binding skills. It makes so much more sense for stuff like placemats and other table decor that will be laundered more often!
