I must take the time to learn to free motion quilt......grrrr! I spent the last two days trying to come up with plan B to quilt the outside borders on my current Ace of Diamonds quilt.
Hand work simply didn't achieve the necessary texture....so after trying various patterns and colors of thread.....I'm now struggling to repeat the diamond quilting pattern I hand quilted in the center. Doing this by machine means starting and stopping a LOT.....and pulling the thread ends to the back, tying them off, and burying them.
This will take forever!!! GRRRRR!!!!
