Progress on High Five for Brenna - W.i.P. Wednesday

I am sad to report that only one corner of High Five for Brenna is completely quilted.

I'm happy to report that parts of the edges of two sides are completely finished.  Narrow edges on the rest of those two sides plus one more side, along with a wider edge on one side, and 3 corners are awaiting needle and thread.  Quilt, quilt, quilt!

My quilting hoop is 14" across which means I can generally quilt about 12" of that.  It takes me between 1 1/2 and 2 hours to quilt that 12" diameter.  I spend between 4 and 8 hours quilting every day.  It seems like I should be finishing it faster than I am....  Sometimes I stop to try to figure out how many more circles I have to quilt but then I tell myself that I'm wasting time.  Just put the hoop on and keep working.  Still, it's hard on my fingers to quilt so many hours.

Note to self:  over-estimate the time it will take to do any (& every!) project. 

I've noticed that I often under-estimate how long things will take and then find that I'm late for appointments and late getting projects finished.  Maybe age is slowing me down....

  1. You cannot rush such loveliness! I am in awe...and my fingers hurt just thinking about it, but I am also envious because hand quilting is such a lovely way to spend time. Just remember - Rome was not built in a day. :)

  2. It may not be as much as you anticipated, but what's done is beautiful! That's more important. =)


I appreciate your comments and look forward to reading what you have to say. Thanks for stopping by.
