With the new year picking up in speed, I've started quilting again to save my sanity. In the past few (rocky) years, especially hand quilting has helped me save my sanity because of its evident progress and result at the end of each session. I am a very results-oriented person and while I can lose myself in small details and intricacies, I want to see RESULTS!
So I'm quite happily quilting away on my Turning Twenty. I've decided to not obsess about the fact that a lot of corners don't line up. What's bothering me at the moment is that the hand quilting does not really show up on the back all that much. I'm therefore considering embellishing it with beads. We shall see ...
One thing is clear though: as much as I attempt to "plan" my quilts for a better result, they always evolve into something I didn't envision at the planning stage. So far, I'm pleased with the outcome.
(and will post more up-to-date photos soon!)
