    Does anyone get backaches while working on their quilts? Mine seems to get me right below the left shoulder. If so, what do you do for it? :?:

    Take a break. Get up and walk around. Stretch.
    And realize that I have probable also missed a meal because I've been sewing so long. :lol:

    I get up and stretch and then I take some Naproxen. Normally I can adjust my posture and the ache goes away but if it gets really bad I need to work out the tension and I am home by myself I use my dog's tennis ball (a clean one lol) and lay on the floor with the ball on the spot that is bothering me . . normally works great :-)

    You are staying in one position for to long at a time. Get a kitchen timer and set it for one hour. When it goes off, get up and streach and move around. Or drink a big glass of water before you start quilting. You will have to get up and move!

    A pitcher of Mango Mojitos get me motivated to go back to the kitchen. Not too much rum, or the seams will not be straight.

    Yes, take a break and maybe take a short walk.

    I try and remember to stretch while sewing. Walkng helps and about 4 aspirin when I forget.
