No Work Goes Unpunished

I thought this would be the year that i would finally finish my daughter’s quilt. I even pulled out my sewing machine to speed along the process.

Having watched several YouTube videos, I knew I could use a walking foot to stitch the front to back and sandwich in the middle.

Alas, things went horribly awry and the backing fabric twisted and bunched resulting in a very messy quilt.

And so I spent the last weekend unpicking all the work I had done with the machine. Worse, I even tore a bit of the backing and unpicked my hand quilting on the top. Grr.

The hubbinator, bless him, asked if we should buy a proper machine to quilt for me. A proper machine costs at least 1500USD. I don’t think so, not with the time I spend quilting at the moment.

I looked at cheaper quilting frames and decided I was too cheap for those, too. Instead, I will try tying a quilt without a frame. I hope it makes the process a little more forgiving. I will also be patching the back and restitching the quilting as I go.

Wish me luck.

Until next time, stay healthy.
