Is half quilted good enough?
Here is the progress on my Double Delight. For the last three Wednesdays I have worked on this lovely quilt. I have to remember that the quilt is beautiful and a whole lot of fun to piece. The quilting of it is going to kill me. I love this quilt I really do. I am finding that I am not enjoying this step of the process. I probably have 6 hours in on the stitch basting and quilting and it is only half done. I will not stitch baste again, I don't mind safety pins. I spend more time removing the threads than running the machine. I have broken at least 15 needles (I am not exaggerating!). I keep at it because I know if I put it away I will not come back to it. After I broke that last needle I decided it is time to get my machine serviced. Ah ha, an excuse. I promise to finish this quilt when I get it back from the guy.
Now I can move on to something else. I am trying to get caught up on my star BOM at Patchwork Times by Judy Laquidara
I am not sure which block this is, I have 9, 10, and 11 to do. It was easy and straight forward and very striking.
I got a new camera but more on that another time. Here is picture I took with it at church tonight. This is Eric and his friend Raz.
