I just want to vent. I am in awe of all of you who machine quilt. I am especially envious of those who have long arm machines. I have spent the afternoon attempting to quilt a baby quilt, and my shoulders are sore, and my nerves are shot. This is not fun for me. I ended up "unsewing" most of what I had done and doing minimal quilting in the ditch. It's a wall hanging for my 8th grandbaby and I wanted it to be perfect. I've sewn all my life and do well with other things, but I'm just going to have to stick with hand quilting. I've read books, watched Ricky Tims, get all excited, but there's no amount of practice that will allow me to do what some of you do. Thanks for letting me vent. I feel better.
