The Tokyo Subway Quilt by Elizabeth Hartman is teaching me a couple lessons that I've known but have thrown out into the lonely world all these years.
Perfection, as it turns out, is not overrated (as I've always believed).
With this quilt (and I suspect almost all quilts), I've decided that:
I can sew precise seams...which I do
I can sew consistent seams...which I do
I can align each square up perfectly....which I do
I can even align the seams up perfectly....which I do
None of these matter one bit if I cut the fabric haphazardly without the same amount of perfection and precision.
