This morning I got up and loaded this quilt for Quilts Beyond Borders.
I hemmed and hawed, walked away and cogitated on a quilting design for awhile, then finally decided to do my go-to swirls. I quilted a pass and decided it really didn’t do much for the quilt—it seemed kind of dense and heavy for all the piecing in the blocks; plus I’m using light thread and it was too much in the dark areas. Even though I wasn’t crazy about it, it wasn’t so bad that it need to be ripped out—until I rolled the quilt. The tension wasn’t quite right so now I AM ripping it out and will have a second chance to quilt it better.

I HATE ripping out stitches! I once heard that if it takes one minute to quilt, it takes ten minutes to rip those same stitches out. (When you requilt it, consider a light-ish to medium-ish khaki green thread. Sometimes that works on a light/dark scrappy quilt.)
