Sometimes, I’m fussy about my makes.
I couldn’t stop thinking that the center of my pillow needed an improvement.
I drew a tree. Fussy cut the tree from fabric. Fussy pinned the tree to the pillow, first lower, then higher. Finally my fussy voice said “OK, you got it”.
I hand appliqued the tree with ends turned under, and hand quilted around the tree.
The bottom row doesn’t really show up because of the very plump pillow form. So I thought the center was lacking and needed a focal point.
The before and after:
Much better! If only all of my mistakes were so easy to make right.
Do you listen to your fussy voice until it’s satisfied or do you accept perceived flaws and call it a day?
