If there's one thing that really gives me trouble its choosing a quilting design. Most of the time it takes weeks, sometimes months. That means the tops pile up while I try to decide how to quilt them, taking notes, making templates, marking and remarking before actually stitching. You see quilting on a frame is new to me. Four months give or take. So this simple quilt was supposed to be a quickie and it has stretched out to over a month since I started piecing. Its been on the frame for 4 days now and this is all I've managed to stitch. Someday I hope to make that quilt that you almost cry when you see it. Thats what I want, the "TO DIE FOR QUILT". This quilt doesn't fall in that category, it falls under the "WHAT WAS SHE THINKING" category. But it'll be a finish and practice.
