Day 6 -- Art Every Day Challenge

I had an urge to hand quilt today. So, I picked up my Stormy Weather Pineapple to work on. I had already quilted the center square and between each of the blocks. I started today by quilting the corner triangles that met close to the center block so that I could start the next block. After I started to quilt on the second block, I decided that I really did not like how the quilting looked! So, I started to rip it all out!

Talk about a headache! I had picked a very mottled grey fabric for the back. The light grey quilting thread blends in exceptionally well. It's a booger to see the stitches to rip them out. I had planned to only rip out inside the blocks and leave the quilting that was between the blocks, but I can't do it because I can't see all the stitches! I'm going to have to take it totally apart -- even the basting. That's the only way to make sure I rip out all the stitches. Then I'm going to bite the bullet and machine quilt this puppy. Boy, I hope I don't screw this up. I'll update again later today, if there's anything to update with. Until next time, happy creating.

I wish you the best as you do all that ripping and resewing.
