Progress in small doses

Started the quilting on the hockey quilt. I don’t usually do much walking foot quilting, nor do I usually simply outline block shapes, but that’s exactly how I began this project.

And when that part was done, you couldn’t even see it on the front!

I had to check the back to spot anywhere I might have missed!

Then I started in on adding additional quilting to the sections. I had some issues wrestling the whole quilt around on my machine and was momentarily discouraged. My lines were so wonky………………….yes, I usually have those uneven quilting lines, but these were really bad! And then I reminded myself that this was a drag-around quilt and it truly didn’t matter. At all! It simply needed to be quilted to hold it together. Wonky lines hold equally as well as straight lines and it absolutely shows the ‘hand of the artist.’

So I will continue in the wonky way and it should be finished soon. I have some free time this week and I’d like to stick to it until it’s done.
