I know I said I wasn't ready to return to work yet and would love more time off, but I really do have to be careful what I wish for! I have a temperature and pains in my ears, neck, shoulders and back. And I'm starting to snivel! My Doc says I have a viral infection! This wasn't the more time off I had in mind. I'm feeling so yeuck! It's taken two whole days to quilt in the ditch on only a quarter of Big H.Now can you see them Joe?
For those wanting to see my 'quilt as you go' method for finishing, I found a tutorial. I followed this tutorial waaaaaay back when I made this quilt. No point reinventing the wheel. When I was making the Dresden quilt I thought it would be my hand stitching in the back seams that would require my attentions, probably the first time I washed it! LOL In fact those seams have held up well, the plates on the other hand have required some TLC. I didn't use any kind of stabiliser and quilted them a little too lightly, most of them have had attention of some kind as they have begun to come away from the backing. I do still favour the less is more style of quilting.
