You should ask yourself, 'do i like to sew?'. would i like a pretty quilt?, and if you see something you like, make it. Then, do the best you can to suit your taste and workmanship. every quilter is different. This last quilt i am quilting now, was going to be the 'best one'.... started quilting it, and found mistakes. they are staying in. because that's the way i feel like doing it. period. And no one will see the mistakes, probably, unless i tell them. and that's not going to happen.
