The pinning and stitching is time consuming. Every row I work on requires ripping out one or two seams, in an attempt to get everything lined up. I guess my seam ripper is my other friend. It can be discouraging seeing all the points that don't match. I have ripped out some seams, to pin and sew again, only to end up with the exact same problem that I was trying to fix! If I can't fix a seam after two attempts, I figure it's meant to be as is.
When I get bummed out about my points, I spread what I've finished out on the floor and literally take a step back. Suddenly all of the flaws fade as the overall pattern leaps out. So pretty!
