Overcoming resistance...or 'just do it!"

The music quilt has been progressing lately, after I ended three weeks or more of procrastination.
I just didn't get started on making the words for the quilt -I was facing that common problem of 'resistance'-the creative person's inner struggle to just sit down and do what you are supposed to do.

I think in this case it was because I was keen to do a really good job on this quilt- I have been saving music fabric for several years now, and I have it set aside as a gift if it is good enough -so I think I was afraid to get started. Would the reality of what I can actually make be anything like the 'perfect quilt" in my head?

Well I just got started .. having given away perfectionism one more time.

I am quite pleased with the progress! Here it is on the design wall, waiting for some more stars!

Oh, and I have some nice fabric for a border or three!
