(More on both of those later.)
Trying to get back in a rhythm is hard, because hubby lets the boys stay up later during the summer, and I feel obligated to stay with them for family time, so I get less quilty time at night.
I've been frustrated to the point of crying with quilting the Swoon. Each block is a huge 24", so the quilt is big, heavy, and the areas to quilt are larger. I spend more time repositioning and dragging the quilt around and through my machine than actual stitching. I can't seem to quilt straight lines, especially longer lines, because of moving and dragging the quilt. And I have to stop halfway through a line to move my hands and the quilt, so it ends up wavy and jags happen when I start again. Even if I mark the lines.
I decided that instead of the large Starbursts in the corners, I would mark a 1-inch grid and try puzzle filler. I love the way it looks, and it's much easier to quilt.
