You know sometimes when it's like pulling teeth to finish a project and finally you just muster through, just so you never have to look at the dumb thing again?? I know it's not just me.
This quilt was like that times ten.
I had tons of bad machine issues while finishing this quilt...like when I broke my first Juki the same day I opened it. Whoops!
Then I tried to quilt it with "organic" straight lines...but it just looked like I couldn't sew a straight line a thousand times over the quilt top, and the walking foot went haywire and it wasn't worth unpicking.
So that, along with lots of other reasons, put this low on my list of quilts to finish. I finally put on a good show (Poldark...so good!) a couple of weeks ago and quilted it with some more crooked lines and bound it.
Then I gifted it to our semi-blind, 13 year old little dog....who doesn't even mind the crooked lines and the bad tension issues. I'm happy it's done and it wasn't wasted! And before you yell at me for giving it to my dog...he actually needed a soft little quilt to sleep on...and this will double as the kids picnic quilt for the backyard! ;)
