I'm supposed to be grading papers. But I really need a break.
Here's where I am on the Joseph's Coat quilting. It is going SOOO SLLLLOOOWWWLLLYYY that it's like watching finger nails grow.
I moved it from the quilt frame to a lap hoop a few weeks ago, which I am quite enjoying since Fall has finally hit in Boise.
I've been trying to measure progress in "hoops per week", with a goal of at least 1 hoop. That means roughly 30 petals per hoop, plus the triangle outlining and fill. It would make me feel much better if didn't know that there are 637 petals and 406 triangles.
If I maintain average momentum, I'll be done quilting before the weather heats up in June.
I do feel a TINY bit better knowing that I'm about 20% finished.
And every time I want to work on another project, I make myself spend a half hour hand quilting this first.
