I always hate finishing up a quilt. I am talking about the binding, the label and the sleeve. Last night when I think I should have called it quits, I decided on a multi colored binding for my Pinecone quilt. It was sort of woodsy looking and I thought the contrast would be good. When I finished all the above steps, I put it back on my design wall and that binding was all wrong. Looked good when I auditioned it, I thought (maybe I just wanted this step over and I was tired), but once finished it was distracting to the rest of the quilt.
I decided to sleep on it.
This morning it was just as bad. So today I am ripping it off and redoing it. Thank goodness this is a smaller quilt. Learned a big lesson about stopping when you know you are just in the "I want to get this done" mode!
