I have spent too much time (or wasted, probably) not doing things because I was afraid I’d do them wrong. If I didn’t think I could do something perfectly, I just wouldn’t do it. So many roads not taken.
But that’s okay – I’m in a good spot at this time in my life.
Maybe that’s why I actually finished window quilt #4 today.
Maybe that’s how I managed to complete the first three window quilts, too.
I didn’t worry about making them perfect.
I just…made them.
And they’re great.
The quilts aren’t perfect; they’re perfectly imperfect.
I’m embracing that.
I find it allows me to get a lot more done.
This one is in the downstairs bathroom. The fabric at the top and bottom is from one of Alex’s crib quilts, the blue and white horizontal strips are from an old tablecloth, and the vertical strips are from a piece of fabric I’ve been taking bits from for all sorts of projects over the years. The four panels, like with quilt #3, are from the shower curtain that used to hang in this very bathroom.
And so, to recap, here are the four window quilts I’ve made so far.
No, they’re not at all perfect.
But they’re pretty, they keep the drafts out, and, best of all?
Now it’s onto the final two….
