Welcome to the Quilting Board!
The Earth without art is just "Eh".
Telling yourself to dream about something sounds crazy, but it really does work.

I choose to live on the wild side and ignore the quilting police. I call my quilts unique especially when they are a mess.
yup. i think we all suffer from this at one point or another. like "they" say, "the enemy of 'good', is 'better'." sometimes, i just walk away for a few minutes, and when i return, things don't look so awful or bad. amazing what 5 minutes can do for perspective!

Ladies, don't be so hard on yourselves! We can only strive for "excellence", knowing that we've done our very best at the time. Don't beat yourselves up over an imperfect point. None of us will ever be perfect, so let's be satisified with "excellence".
I agree....we are not perfect.....so our projects be it quilting, sewing, cooking or cleaning will not be perfect.....so my personal moto is ...."LET GO....AND LET GOD WORRY ABOUT IT"....I do the best I can with the brain cells that I have at the time (some times more .....some times less).....Why oh why worry about the small things......Just do the very best you can, be it with quilting, husbands, a job or children..... JUST THE BEST YOU CAN....and not lose sleep over it
Yes that is a real picture of my hometown Temecula, California. We feature premiere Wineries, World Class Golf Courses, Pechanga Indian Casino and Hot Air Balloons

I have a friend who says regularly, "perfection is highly overrated." I got past that perfectionist point. I know people who have been quilting much longer than I who never have. .....and BTW, I get more way blue ribbons than they do. If you don't allow yourself to fiish, it does not matter how perfect you are.
