Obsessing?

Are you obsessive about your points, seams and stitches?

If you are, you shouldn't be reading this blog (joke!).

Sarah at House of Krom has summed it up!

I think every quilter should print that out and pin it on the wall near the sewing machine! I'm certainly going to.

hey! thanks for the link! i had a feeling i wasn't the only one having perfection obsession : )

I so agree with her. I am so far from a perfectionist that for years I didn't even try quilting, thinking you had to be perfect. I'm so thankful that I learned otherwise. I quilt for fun, not profit or shows. The recipients are so happy to get a quilt that they never look for imperfections, or if they do they don't tell me.

I agree with all of you. I am in it for the fun and the artistic expression and if you don't like what I do it is your loss.

I hung one of my quilts on our Guild display booth's wall this summer. Everyone ever so politely, looked away from its liberated qualities. I knew they thought I'd goofed on my seams, points, and bindings. I was delighted at their reactions and neither explained nor apologized. Instead, I smiled to know how happy my sewing makes me and those that I give them too ;)

Boy, I think Sara hit the nail on the head. I try to be liberated (both piecing and quilting), and yet I have this inner dialog with myself as to just how "liberated" is acceptable.

But after my quilts are done and washed and on the bed, I never see those glaring mistakes again! So, then I have to wonder, why the obsessing?? She had a great post...thanks for the link!
