new design + awkward sewing = frustration

I've been working on a new quilt design, and it is not going as planned. I have been so frustrated with the sewing. This quilt is for my new nephew who is due to arrive in a few months. It's a pretty basic design, and really should have only taken about an hour to sew.
I've had a lot of hang-ups along the way, from forgetting to cut down the strips to the right size to partial seams and mitered corners not mitering. I can't show you yet, but I am sewing this thing pretty unconventionally. It will be a miracle if I can get it sewn the way I am sewing in my head.

Wish me luck!
