After Saturday's post, all the blocks on my design wall have been put away. I decided I was going to unpin this quilt, my oldest UFO, and pin baste a wall hanging that I listed for the Getting It Done Challenge. I had intended to hand quilt this but the batting I used was too thick and my fingers would never let me work on this like I would want to. I wasn't sure what I was going to do with it.
Instead of unpinning and folding it up yet again, I sat down at the sewing machine and started quilting. This quilt has a very special place in my heart. I am still not ready to share the story but the quilt is my therapy and has tons of tears soaked in to it. I think this time was the magical time and I am quilting and remembering and at times I can smile.
A friend wrote a blog post one time about working on a quilt that made her sad. I told her that I got my quilt out once in a while and worked on it. After a time, put it away again. Sometimes 5 minutes were too many. But after a long time and many therapy sessions with the quilt, it will be finished soon.
It's Monday in Blogland so that means there will be some fabulous design walls shared at Patchwork Times.
