The balance

If you read my blog you know that I am constantly struggling between my structured, perfectionists sewing background with my desire to create free and wild. Today my 'do it right' side is screaming.

Two years ago (I'm embarrassed to admit) I made quilt blocks to serve as the guest book at my friends wedding. I then over the course of two years pieced a quilt and lining together. I then sent the quilt away to be quilted. This company also offered binding services. Binding is often not so fun and I'm not great at it, so I also asked them to bind the quilt. I can't even begin to describe my disgust when it arrived in the mail today.

I can't believe they even sent this to me with a bill. Luckily the quilting is fine and I will just have to re-bind it myself.

Please, please, please if this is what your binding looks like take a class, watch u-tube tutorials and don't even think about charging someone for it.

Thanks - I feel better now. Off to fix this mess.
