Do you think the Christmas Season starts too early? Does your husband snore and keep you awake? Does your favorite team always lose? Things aren't so different in Sweden according to the Complaints Choir of Helsinki. Thanks to Freakonomics Blog for this amusing video.
I love hand quilting. I find it relaxing, soothing, and I'm awful at it. That both front and back had so many seams didn't help, either. This is worse than any other (smaller) attempts. Much worse.
This project waited for months to get quilted because I couldn't decide what to do. Finally, I just started, used the only hand quilting thread I had, and tried to do it as simply as possible. Hmmph.
At first, I really tried and took out stitches and tried again. At that rate, the thing would never have been finished, so I bowed to the inevitable and just plodded on doing the best I could.
I should have stuck to my second decision which was to make 2 different quilts and use a solid back on both - at least there would have only been seams on one side to deal with. I like the colors, but the quilting stinks!
