Yes, yet again, I have grossly underestimated how long it would take me to hand quilt something. When Deb issued a friendly challenge to pick a project to finish by the end of November, I picked my kaleidoscope quilt. I thought it was close enough to a finish to be possible. As you can see from my progress chart, I’m not going to make it!
I have been working on it diligently since I took Deb up on the challenge, much more so than before, so there is actual progress now even if it doesn’t look like much. I’m just slow, and the quilting lines are less than 1 1/2” apart. But, since I am working on the quilt regularly thanks to the challenge, I will say the challenge is serving its purpose even if I don’t quite meet it.
My new goal is to be able to wrap it and put it under the Christmas tree. So, time to get off the computer and go settle in my quilting chair.
