Now back to our regularly scheduled program…QUILTING!I’m continuing to work on “I feel enormous in your Lilliputian world” section by section with the great hope that I’ll have it finished Tuesday night as I leave bright and early Wednesday morning and would like to be able to deliver it on the other end. The light from the sun and the 780 hit the thread on the left just right so it looks like it’s glowing. As I stitched the nautilus pattern my eyes were drawn to the glowing. I guess I can call that section “glow worm”.
1) ditch the quilt
2) keep going and hope it all works out
3) get out the seam ripper
4) show the offending bit to friends privately or publicly and get some input
A side note on quilterly advice: it is there to help us weed out the choices in front of us. There is no obligation to use the quilterly advice given. The follow-through to that is when asked and I give advice there is no expectation on my part that you will follow the advice. It’s your quilt. It’s your rules.
As I show these last two pics I realize the section I want to repeat isn’t going to work visually the way I want it to. Oh well these things happen. I’m still happy with it. I do know what I’m doing with the border once I’m out there, I’m stitching in the title of the piece and signing it.
I just read a great quote that I think is worth sharing:
“When perfectionism is driving us, shame is riding shotgun, and fear is that annoying backseat driver” Brene Brown
