Diligence might be over-rated.
I hand-quilted two (quite giant) blocks yesterday while watching football on the TV. As a result of my rusty quilting chops, it took me the majority of the day. But! I now only have about nine giant blocks to go, out of 25 total. Not too shabby.
I won't lie. I'm proud. I'm excited. I even threw Quiltie across my bed to see if I still liked him.
And I do.
So that's good.
What's not good?
See the little frayed fabric there on the left? Quiltie's coming apart at a seam. Yeah. Sad.
We've had such a rocky road, Quiltie and I, and he is prone to lashing out. But this? Really? I've been so careful with him (except for the neglect part). Coming apart at a seam. Grr.
Anyone have any ideas for a fix? Should I stick some fray check on it and make some real tiny stitches by hand to sew it back together? That's kinda all I can think of to do.
My PIC said I should just look the other way. "It never happened," she said.
My PIC is kind of a genius sometimes.
Hey, everybody! Great news! Quiltie's going great!!
(See what I did there? Oh, I'm good.)
