One thing is for certain, and that is I need more practice hand quilting. I thought it would be similar to my hand appliqué work, but in those circumstances I was not dealing with a backside that would be showing. As it turns out, it kind of matters what the backing looks like. Okay, so I missed a few stitches. No big deal, right? Wrong! It is going to bother me to no end until those are fixed. But how should I go about doing it? Wait until I’m done with the quilting and then go back to everything that needs re-stitched or fix the sections as I go? I’m thinking the latter might be the better alternatitive.

Fall Quilt: Hooped and Quilting
After ignoring my Fall Quilt for a week, it was time to drag it back out and continue quilting it. However, I still don’t know how to keep the damn thing bundled together so it isn’t flopping around everywhere as I’m pushing my needle in and out!
