Well I guess I should be happy that it has only taken me about 10 weeks to stitch up two of the five long panels of the quilt now.
I do not even want to work out how long it is going to take me all up, including the border!!!
In any case, I am thoroughly enjoying having a hand stitching project to pick up at the end of the day (not every day, but most), as well as having something warm to snuggle under in this windy, gloomy cold snap that has hit Melbourne (for what has seemed like months now, but I'm sure it's not?!!).
The lines are being stitched 1/4 inch apart and the texture from all these stitches is wonderful. I love to sit patting it! I feel it is giving the quilt an antique look to it. Even the back of the quilt looks 'aged' and bubbly.
So I will keep on working with it, until everyone around me is sooo bored from seeing me lug this thing to each stitch group, and one day, I will get the third panel done! (Haha, you thought I was going to say finish it didn't you? Mmmm I think that day is a long way away for now).
This quilt began it's life way back here in this post, almost 2 years ago. I WILL get there in the end.
