The Hurrier You Go the Behinder You Get

Are you familiar with that phrase? I first learned it when I visited Amish country in Lancaster, PA.

Sometimes I chastise myself for being so slow to do things. In this case it was getting the next quilt loaded on the frame.

I’m glad I was so slow because while working on enlarging the back I remembered that I wanted to load this with it running from side to side so that I can avoid the thick seams. This also meant I needed to enlarge the backing differently, more width than length.

If I had rushed I would have had to do a lot of rework. I layed out all the layers and took measurements tonight. The white part which is very gauzy and thin is the “batting”. I’m trying to decide what to do with it. Will probably enlarge it and use it too.

There are a lot of different fabrics in this quilt. I am just going to keep it simple and quilt straight lines to anchor evetything down.

I've heard that saying before. Don't know who said it but I was young when it was said. Good luck with the quilting!

Looks like you have quite a task in front of you. I don't really like sewing different fabrics together. It never seems to work with me ... or else I lack the experience at the machine to sew them on properly. Anywho! Good luck with it. ;^)
