Do you know where every stitch of your quilt is going to be, BEFORE you pin baste? Have you already drawn them on by that time?
If so, I salute you.
I am not planful quilter. I didn’t have the vaguest idea what I was going to quilt into this quilt when I started.
And, consequently, I’ve pulled quite a few stitches.
And, I’m having to reconcile myself to this contrast, where one block is more densely quilted than the one next to it.
This happens a lot in this quilt.
I’m secretly hoping it happens enough that it will balance out into a pleasing mixture.
I’ve gotten started on the border now, doing the ditch work. My fingers were hurting from hand quilting, so I decided I’d better decide what I was going to do next at the machine. And, I did.
Anyway. That’s my process and I’m stickin’ to it.
Spring break starts tomorrow. No school for Syd next week. Nothing to do.
Are idle hands still the devil’s workshop? Or, is that old-fashioned?
At least I know she’s hobbled.
Be well. Have a great Friday. It’s going to be rainy here til Sunday. That’s good for two reasons. Quilting…Yay! And the ground around here really needs it. No matter how much it turns out to be.
