(I am looking forward to comments from certain individuals for that blog title. Just saying.)
But what I am really talking about measuring here is how much of the hand quilting I have done on my Stitch Tease quilt. Today I hit the 15" mark. As the quilt measures 60" x 80" and I am stitching lengthwise this means I have now done 25% of the stitching. There's still a long way to go but it is a milestone none the less.
I don't do prolonged bouts of stitching on this quilt. And in the heat of the wonderful summer we I had did not do one little bit. Now I pick it up when I have the time and the inclination and find that is slowly building up those rows of stitching.
I still love the way the different colours of perle that I use play a game of hide and seek depending on the fabric they are stitching over. And I love the texture this stitching is adding to the quilt.
When it is done, eventually, I think that this will be one of my most favourite quilts.
