Machine Quilting Frustration
I have spent the last two days sandwiching five quilts (one very small). Then I quilted my two Linus quilts in the ditch. They are quite puffy as I think I have used 4oz wadding, not 2oz. It was over an inch thick when I unrolled it. One of the quilts has the binding attached ready to sew down and is fine. However having recently watched Ricky Timms' video I decided to free quilt the crazy blocks in the other one. It is awful so I am extremely fed up. I am going to clear up the living room where I have spread myself out and "enjoyed" a mini retreat while my husband is working for two days (mainly we are retired). Then I shall undo at least two blocks and will do some each day till the stitches are out. Better no quilting than that quilting. Heigho time to get on.
