The sound of the steam escaping when the pressure valve is released?
Today I rang Twisted Thread to withdraw my quilt. I expected it to be like not handing in my homework - needing a good solid excuse, not to mention a back up excuse. I do feel guilty and hate the idea of having a withdrawn label in the space where my quilt should be, but it was the right decision.
Because there are four concentric arcs to be replaced, the remaining sections have bias edges and the movement of the pieces as I tried to put them back together was making life impossible. I have realised that I need to stabilise each piece, albeit temporarily, before joining them together. Working out the best way to do this, then quilting and binding the piece is not something I could have done in the time available to me before the deadline. I feel quite sad now.
