Nothing but quilting going on here. What have I been quilting?? Practice, practice and practice quilting. I wish that patience could be one of those "P" words. My patience is definitely being tried. I have spent the last several days, except the days I worked, practice quilting on Annie. I've been practicing backtracking, all over designs and feathers. I'll be honest with you, it's hard when you want so badly for your quilting to look really good and it doesn't. It looks better every day, but I want perfection NOW. I'm trying really hard to stay positive. I know that much of it is because I am a perfectionist and I am overly critical. Fortunately, Scott has been my personal cheerleader and counselor. I'm pretty sure last night he could have been wearing a jersey with the initials "QP" on the front with pom poms in his hands! :-) We made a pact that he would give me his honest opinion on my quilting. If it looks bad, then he'll tell me and I promise not to get mad at him. I need a voice of reason because sometimes I swear I think my quilting is worse than it really is. If Scott tells me my quilting looks good, then I know he's not just saying that to be nice.
Remember "Butter Churn?" It was the Le Petite quilt for November.
I have my next quilt top on deck to be quilted. I'm doing a much bigger one next. I'm thinking these small quilts take almost as much time as a big one would!!
Happy Valentine's Day everyone! The girls have the day off today. We are going to have a nice, relaxing day at home today.
