Well it sat in a "completed sate" for a while because I didn't feel confident enough to quilt it myself. Then it sat some more because I soon realized all of the many mistakes that this quilt top showcased. A couple of months ago I pulled it out and repaired it. Yes, I had to make repairs! There were some seams that in places had no seam allowance. Talk about embarrassing! This quilt top is of course completely wonky and not square because most of pieces have some bias involved. Oh, and I have no idea what I was thinking with the piping on this quilt. I won't even point out that I didn't even know how to attach piping properly.
While I would love to just trash this top, I can't. This is my husband's quilt. When he was 19 he served a two year church mission to Nagoya Japan. The fabrics in this quilt are from the Japanese futon sheets he used while on his mission. I know that he will love it with all of it's wonderful imperfections.
Ok, back to quilting. Hopefully all f the imperfections won't drive me bonkers while I'm quilting. Luckily all of us quilters know that it will all quilt out right? :) ha!
I'd love to hear all about the perfectness of your first quilt top!
and in case you are wondering the pattern is Spinky's from Quilter's Cache
