Fiction writers are taught to write every day, not worrying about spelling, punctuation, wording. Just get something down on paper. The more you write, the better the chance that you'll write something worth reading. For every ten pages, maybe you'll end up with with a couple of paragraphs that are really great. Not many writers end up with a great novel without many rough drafts, editing sessions, and wadded up papers.
I think it's the same with art quilts. You try lots of different things, make lots of little quilts, and sometimes (if you're lucky) you end up with one you really like. Then you can take that good idea and expand it into a bigger quilt. The not-so-great quilts are not a waste - they are part of the quilting journey.
So "Hugs and Kisses" is a Journey Quilt. And that's okay.
