I totally @#%^&*&!!!

Sorry I am very very sad at the moment due to myself. I am only the one to blame and I am going to busy myself somewhere beneath my big pile of stash and not coming out as I just can't do anything good with it on the quilting front that is. Yes I am in tears here.
Here you can see a pic of my Fall doll quilt and well on the colors and the quilting front there is not to much to say about, as that look almost fine, but when I pieced both sides together somehow something moved and I think the quilting did make it even look worse. The only thing I like at the moment is my label. Th bog star isn't in the middle, it is a bit turned and somehow there is a curve on one side. Well it looks like I will have to make another one and go somewhere to a corner and cry loudly. Even the sitting on a horse riding with a big speed can't hide the mistakes. Something like that said the ladies from the Round Robin I am participating in. Well got my first Round Robin today and I even don't dare to touch it as the square from Connie is just beautifull. I only can mess it up. Don't you love that pineapple block? She included somefabrics we can use, but we can also use our own. I really don't have a clue how I will do the points, hope I will come up with something good.
Also she included some gifts
which I really needed as I am just very very sad. The fabric is handdyed by Connie isn't it bautifull.
By the way I also got a flattire on my bike yesterday, luckily I could take my DH's bike as walking is just a bit to far.
Well I am back hiding in a place where no one can find me.

Ok, pick yourself up (you already kicked yourself in the butt!!) and move forward!! The best way to get rid of these feelings is to accomplish something......start with something little and you know you can do....then move on. Don't be afraid of Connies center.....she does great work!!! Hang the center up in a place where you will see it often and soon inspiration will come to you!!I wish I was in your group...from what I have seen your centers are fantastic!!!

I think you are being way too hard on yourself. I like your quilt - it's got character - and I would be very pleased to recieve it if I was your swap partner!

Chalk it up to a bad day. We all have them don't we! It looks great to me. I just wandered onto your blog and really enjoyed it. Come and visit mine sometime!

Well, maybe you can see a problem from a galloping horse (I think that's originally a Gwen Marston quote), but over the internet it looks charming. If you're unhappy with it, the best thing is to work on another project and discover how wonderful most of your work is!

Have you tried blocking it? You know, damping it and pinning it square on a board or wall to dry into shape. then give it a good steam press while still pinned. You gotta show this fabric what shape you want it to take...

I agree totally with Fiona - it's a lovely little quilt and I wouldn't be sad to receive it that's for sure :o)

I've looked and looked at this lovely little quilt and haven't a clue what you are talking about and I do have a pretty good eye for catching things. If I was your swap partner, I would be thrilled to receive this and it would certainly be hanging up on my wall! Don't be so hard on yourself! :o) Smile and mail it out!

I love your colours! At least you have started, i am still choosing fabrics!!! we all have quilts that aren't quite waht we wanted, but often when you leave and come back it isn't as bad, I think it's good! Tracey
