This quilt has been waiting for me to finish up the binding for a couple of weeks now.
I decided to bind the back by hand so I brought it upstairs for me to do while watching TV (which is rare). As time passed I decided done was better and I would use a decorative stitch to finish it up.
This is what I choose as it looked like it would go well with my quilting designs. I knew this was a mistake when I made the decision. I have learned that dense designs do not work well with bindings and they also take a while to stitch out (even longer to rip out).
So against my better judgement I forged ahead, down one side and the next.
- When experience tells you no, don’t
- When you are in a hurry to get something done, slow down
- When it is not going well, take a break and reconsider
- When it is still not going well, stop
- Consider the first 4 steps much sooner
I am now using my seam ripper and if I had just spent the time hand sewing instead of sewing and ripping out, I’d be done. Sigh.
Please tell me I am not the only one, learning and relearning.
More ripping to go, on the Journey, Jackie
