    Somebody posted earlier about neck pain and quilting. Here is my scrappy log cabin that sent me to the doctor and caused 2 weeks of constant pain. This quilt isn't huge, but it does have 2 layers of cotton batting inside. Wrestling it around caused the injury! It's warm though! I'm finally able to do some more quilting today.

    It happens to me all the time, which is why I question myself why I keep making quilts that make me hurt. But the end result is always worth it. Yours is truly lovely, love all the colors

    Gorgeous quilt. Yes, I get back pain from either bending over the Lizzie frame or sitting at the sewing machine too long too. Hope you have recovered.

    Been there, done that! But I know how it is--you just want to get it DONE, and figure you'll sort your body out later! If it's any comfort, I think it was worth your effort--your quilt is beautiful! Glad you're feeling better now--but take it easy! The quilt will wait if you're hurting!
