Anyway, here is the lovely Quilter's cliche, but.......ahhhhhhhhhhhhhh! What wonderful therapy I had yesterday!!!! I spent most of the day in front of the machine, quilting all three sections of Jan's Family Gems. The sections were two rows each (about 24-30 inches wide), so it was not a struggle under the machine AT ALL!!!!! Not a single pucker on the back, no sore neck or back muscles----yup! This 'quilting in sections' method is wonderful! But, for those of you who frequent my blog already know my opinion on this method. :0) Of course, there is ONE minor downfall with this method-----more hand sewing is needed than the normal method because of the need to hand-stitch the connector strips on the back. However, I finished piecing the sections together by 5:15 last night; came upstairs and made some meatballs and spaghetti for the girls and myself for supper, and then we plopped down for yet another movie, The Bridge to Taribithia. SERIOUSLY!!!! What a SAD, SAD movie (with a partial happy ending)......oh! I was NOT expecting the sadness of it.
But anyway, after dinner and while the movie was playing, I hand-sewed both connector strips down. I used a longer needle than usual this time---I think it went so much quicker because of it. FYI.
