Melanie inNJ Here's your quilt. It was a multi day quilting process. I often wonder - if the piecers wonder - why I choose what I do. It's a guessing game to figure out what a piecer wants / likes. Often we don't know each other. I need to pick up clues not only from the quilt top but from the person. Those tiny Jane Sickle blocks screamed detail me. The rest came from there. I must say the outer borders were a long (sorry) and boring job. Sometimes the work is tedious, both with the piecing and quilting. There's no way around it. Got to just get it done, or find yourself with another UFO.
Growing up learning to sew was out of necessity for me. I remember the moment the switch in my head flipped to the "need to do this" position. It involved some really really ugly hand-me-downs. I spent all Christmas break figuring out how to make a blouse. Many tasks are repetitive or require extra effort to pull off with any project. Those jane blocks are a great example. So, How do you overcome the tedious tasks in your quilting?
