I admit it. I am worried. Fortunately when I am piecing a quilt or working on the Nolting, I can't worry because I have to concentrate. Piecing is much more relaxing and relatively stress free compared to quilting on the long arm. Piecing is repetitive. Quilting requires thought. Design decisions must be made carefully.
I knew that I wanted to quilt feathers in the white spaces. I did sketch them out with chalk first then I used the Mark B Gone blue marker that disappears when spritzed. I did better with the chalk but didn't want that getting in the hook so I switched. I ended up ripping some stitches out and starting over with the last triangle.
I prefer free hand work over ruler work. Unfortunately all I could see was ruler work on the blocks. I want the blocks to stand alone and not be overwhelmed with quilting. Technically I was not aiming to SID but on some of the seams, that is exactly where I ended up. This block is strange. Though the background fabric is the same as the block next to it, the hue is darker. I don't know why. I hope it will blend once the quilt is done. Sigh.
