One of the things I love about quilting is it is a way to keep my hands busy, which in turn keeps my mind busy. This week I have been working hard at keeping my hands and mind busy. First I loaded a quilt for quilting. Not too much quilting was done as the thread broke a couple of times. I have finally learned it is best for me just to walk away when that happens. It keeps the frustration level to a minimum. Sometimes the thread or the machine is just cranky and everything works just fine after a day or two of rest. I'll give it another go today.
In the meantime, I've begun putting together the large hexagon diamonds.
It will take a lot of stitching to get this to a queen-sized quilt. But I don't mind one bit - I just love it.
