Quilts like this one often take a lot more than I think because these are the quilts that the seam ripper comes out for, I agonize over color decisions, thread decision, stitching motifs, batting and well everything. And I do mean everything.
Then there is the emotional I must do better than my best because 1) it’s for competition and 2) it’s for a friend. When it’s not perfect – the tension is off even just slightly out comes the seam ripper. There’s the panic thinking it’s not good enough.
Checking, double checking…
I’ll be sending it to the maker later this week for a sleeve and label. I’d love to deliver this particular quilt in person. There will be a lot more quilting over the next few weeks, a little less blogging.
