Our sewing spread from Monday
Anyway, as I was quilting I noticed that the back was getting rather bunchy and even the front didn't look right. After carefully examining my handiwork I concluded that I had not basted enough and needed to start over! Luckily I only had quilted three lines...but this quilt is big and three lines still equates to a hefty amount of time with my seam ripper. I recently told Megan that I enjoy quilting so much because I truly enjoy each step of the process - I can now say that I do NOT enjoy any part that involves seam ripping. I am almost finished ripping out the last line and will make a second attempt at basting it over the weekend. I have even armed myself with a larger stash of basting pins from Joann's so I can really go at it this time. ;)
In order to take my mind off my basting/quilting woes I spent last night finishing up two pillows that I started on Monday. I have to say that I am nothing less than obsessed with these creations! The presence of these two lovelies on my couch already changes the entire look of my living room. I can't wait to make more soon!! I will write a longer post once my couch is sufficiently covered.
This is a photo of happiness :)
