Good Intentions

At the first of the year I resolved that I was going to finish hand quilting my Dear Jane quilt in 2015. I had good intentions, but you know what they say about good intentions!  Yes, I was paving the road to hell by forcing myself to hand quilt this quilt!  I was halfheartedly working on it Wednesday during our weekly sewing group and doing quite a bit of grumbling about how I am not a hand quilter.  I made the comment that if I just ripped out the little bit that I had hand quilted I could put it on the quilt frame and have it done in no time.  My friends all agreed by saying if I wasn't enjoying the process, why continue?  Good point!  I immediately began ripping!

Good decision! If it's torture, no matter now nice it looks you'll always have a bad memory associated with it. Besides, it will be finished faster!

A finish is better than a UFO in my eyes. I would do the same thing.
