I've been working on several different things lately. One major accomplishment was getting the lattice sewn down on the Les Pensées de Grandma quilt. As I explained in my last post, now that I hand-sewed the lattice where the fabric had frayed, I felt confident to machine stitch over that -- topstitching along both sides of the lattice. Just to make it all even.
It took a good chunk of time, but I kept reminding myself of two things:
- It would take even longer by hand.
- If I hadn't used cheap fabric, I wouldn't have this problem. I mean creative challenge.
Before I could silently complain too much, I was done!
I'm pleased with how it looks, and actually think it's a nice touch. I just hope it holds, you know?
Thanks for reading!
