Thank heaven for borders...

I finished the center of my quilt top yesterday. I decided this week I was going to get all of my UFO tops done at least... they might have to wait in line to get quilted (on my new mid-arm and frame wheeeee) but I digress. I was holding it up and looking at it when my husband came in and said (as he always does) in a preternaturally cheerful voice "Do you like it?" To which I replied "No". Actually I hated it.... so much that I wadded it up and threw it unceremoniously into my UFO box. After a good sleep I decided to dig it out and at least finish it. So this morning I put the borders on. I am so glad I didn't give up... I actually like it now. It may not be my all time fave but I do like it, which is so much better than the unadulterated hate I was feeling for it last night. Oh... the Bs kinda suck but I figure not too bad for only being 3" :)

congrats on the finish and good for you for hanging in there. I'm not always happy with my quilts either. For me now, the goal is to figure out what I don't like about it and learn from the experience. I figure if I make the occasional quilt that I love love love it's okay to have a few blecks along the way. And while it's still a top, if you really don't like it then chop it up and go wild with the parts, like Siobhan did earlier in this blog.
