Frustration. Every stitch I take on “Thou shalt NOT steal pecans!” brings batting through to the top of the quilt. Every single stitch. Both on the back and the front actually. I’ve spent more time separating the fabric from the batting so that the batting around the thread will go back between the fabrics than I ever thought possible and I’m only on the first block. This is no fun whatsoever. I’m going to have to change the way I’m quilting this quilt. Kantha stitching will not work for it. I think it’s because the top fabrics are fairly loosely woven, which I had not considered a problem. It is though. It’s a huge problem.
Of course, I don’t have the quilting thread here at the house in the color I need. I ordered lots of thread yesterday, but I’m sure it won’t be here until at least Monday. So, now I need to figure out something else to work on. Crap.
