The Ironing board cover that turned into

What are you most proud of? That this Failed Ironing board Cover metamorphosised into a beautiful Quilt, rather than a heap of fabric in the bin.Im also extremely pleased with the amount of quilting I managed........and spirals which I have hankered todo for a long while What advice would you give someone starting this project? If its 'All ruined now' ...don't throw a hissy fit and throw it in the bin...walk away for a while and see if anything can be salvaged and just what it might become! As for the quilting, when you start going round and round, especially with your eyes fixated on the line of sewing, some wibbles and wobbles might seem like enormous boo-boos at the time. My advice is to 'discreetly' mark the 'problem area' and carry on finishing the quilting. You will be surprised how little , when you have filled your project with quilting, stands out as 'wrong'. There may be an irretrievably obvious problem somewhere that does draw the eye...I went too far into the centre of a spiral which resulted in a hard, raised nubble which screamed at me...but I simply went back and took out the amount of stitching that caused this (not so much in the end, just a couple of rounds) and was happy with the result.
