Perfectionism At It's Worst

I so much of a perfectionist.  Someone tell me to just FMQ it and not worry about getting every single stitch perfect.  I would have had this entirely quilted today if not for my stupid perfection tendencies.

Here's what I have after ripping and reripping all day:

Yep.  That's it.  Pathetic.  I give up for today.  Tomorrow will bring fresh eyes and a new look at it.

Hang in there. I find that I hate my FMQ'ing while I am doing it, but once I am done w/the whole quilt, I have a hard time seeing all the mistakes I made along the way. Done is better than perfect!

I think it looks great. Don't be so hard on yourself and relax. My theory is always think of it on the back of a galloping horse, you just don't see the slight imperfections. A good friend of mine told me once that if there is a mistake on something just think of it as some extra LOVE you put in it.

Take care and have a great weekend.
