Slow Stitching Sunday

/ posted in: Quilting

Don’t you just hate it when you are happily sewing along, minding your own business, and all of a sudden you realize you’ve done this?

There is nothing like hand sewing a hexagon to the wrong place to crush your spirit. I haven’t had the mental strength to fix it yet.

At this point the husband asked how my quilt was going. I told him to come over and look at it to see how it was going. He came over, looked at it, and said, “Oh. Not good.”

Then he asked me something that I have a feeling may be been bugging him for a bit. “So, um, this quilt? It doesn’t seem like it is going to be very nice when it is finished.”

Tip – Do not say that to a quilter who is in her third year of working on this hand pieced quilt.

I managed to ask him why he thought that and he said, “Well, it isn’t like a real quilt. It seems really stiff.”

That’s when I took the time to explain that all the paper in this quilt top comes out before it is finished.
