Sometimes, you can have an idea you think is a good idea, but it turns out to be…not so much. That happened to me this weekend. I did a top using 2-1/2″ squares, but I really don’t love it. (Shown here with batting and the probable backing)
Fortunately, I doesn’t have to be perfect. I can say, “Wow, that wasn’t as good an idea as I thought” and go ahead and quilt and bind it for charitable donation. Well, I guess I could throw it away, but that seems a little extreme. I could also stuff it in a corner and let it gather dust, but that isn’t useful. So, I’ll just finish it.
The second top for the week is a little better. I really like the design, but am not thrilled with that dark green stripe. I could take it apart. I could throw it away. I could leave it unfinished. But, I’ll, again, just go ahead and finish it and make the pattern again with hopefully better results.
It is OK to have great ideas that don’t quite work. It is much better than having no ideas at all.
