Do I not like this type of quilting because I'm not good at it....or am I not good at it because I don't like this type of quilting (and avoid doing it)?
Tonight I've been quilting a wallhanging that Mom pieced for my sister Ann. I've had this for several months and have been avoiding finishing it but since I'm going to VA next week and Ann will be there, I decided it was time to just get it done.
I had some idea about how to quilt parts of this and Deb had some suggestions for me too (I ignored all the ones that included stitch in the ditch!).
I did break out my ruler and quilted some straight lines in the 4 patches.
Did some leaf quilting in the border and in the background around the flowers & vase where it may have been less successful. (See first photo)
I just have to reload and quilt the last couple borders but I was getting really tired and decided I should do that after a break or after sleeping.
I'm need to accept that if I'm going to quilt these types of tops that I'm just not going to be but so good. I don't do them often enough to be really good at them and I'm trying to focus on the fact that Mom doesn't care how I quilt them and is always happy with the results.
