The Churn Dash quilt is still waiting for me to bury all the threads and turn the binding, but neither of those is a job I mind doing when I’m in the mood for handwork, or sewing with the girls, so it can wait. I thought while I was still somewhat motivated to quilt, I’d get started on the modified Moda Blockheads quilt from last year that’s also been waiting to be quilted.
I had already picked a pantograph out for this quilt, but I’m not loving Panto’s as much as I used to, even though I really, really dislike doing custom. I’m actually about a third of the way through this top, and if I could stay motivated, I could get it done soon! But…
There’s always a but. I keep rolling the quilt back looking at my setting triangles and I know that since I keep looking to assure myself the quilting in them is adequate, I know that it’s not and I am going to have to rip them all out. I have seven of them quilted. The design I put in them just isn’t dense enough to look right with the densely quilted blocks.
I would probably do better to do the remainder of them in something more appropriate, and leave them until the rest of the quilt is done, otherwise I will surely lose interest.
I don’t know why Miss Myrtle can’t work on frogging them all out during the night like a good assistant would, but I guarantee the divine Miss M won’t do it! Bah humbug.
It’s going to rain all week long. I’ll probably gain five pounds back since I won’t be able to walk. Lunch? Pizza. Yep. Not helping.
