You guys are way too nice but I am beginning to realize that if I’ll walk away from the quilt when I’m discouraged and come back to it later, I don’t see every single wobble and poorly stitched line like I do as I’m quilting it.
I did a few more blocks tonight and they’re getting a little better except for a few places I ran up on the applique. I know I should take those stitches out but I’m debating leaving them in. Since my Aunt’s blanket stitch is all over the place on the applique it seems a bit pointless for me to pick out some stray lines of quilting and I may do more harm than good to the applique itself.
I think in the end I’m going to be OK with this quilt – it won’t be my best work but I will have learned something along the way and since even my worse quilting is better than my aunt could have managed she comes out ahead too!
Of course, I told Debbie that in the future Nancy might choose to send her quilts to Florida rather than Minnesota. After all why have me quilt them when she could have them quilted by an award winning quilter! (Yes, I’m feeling a little inadequate these days!)
