I think sometimes its important to put things in perspective. I'm railing hard against my perfectionist tendencies in general and trying to remember to embrace an "it's better done than perfect" attitude with regard to my quilts.
Now, sometimes a person is making a show quilt or maybe a bed quilt whose purpose is to lay flat on a neatly made bed. However, I think my favorite size quilt is a lap quilt. I find it a size that isn't too daunting or overwhelming, and also a reasonable size to easily quilt on my domestic machine. But also, where does a lap quilt end up? Well, in my house, it's most likely cuddled around someone, or used to build a fort, and in the end it's probably thrown into a pile on the couch (or the floor!). (It's worth noting that I do have a quilt rack in the living room... but some of us are not always inspired to use it.)
I love our pile of lap quilts. But it does drive home the idea that they don't have to be perfect to be enjoyed. So when those points don't match up perfectly or the quilting is somehow not up to my standard, I like to remind myself that "it'll look great wadded up on the couch."
What are your strategies for letting go of perfection while quilting?
