Well it’s not really so “quasi” because some progress still counts as progress. Allow me that moment when I hang up the in-progress quilt, step back to admire both the quilting and the progress and… wait, where was I quilting again? How much or little did I actually get done? oh.
Damn. Our old adage of smaller isn’t easy or fast* is totally true here – and entering a new area of work takes some care in order not to create a new area requiring un-quilting. Some extra pinning is not time wasted – a few pins parallel to the seams helps quite a bit.
But still. Damn. Part of my brain is always taking roughly dividing the amount of unquilted surface by the number of days available and going… damn.
* Fast isn’t always easy. Easy isn’t always fast. Smaller isn’t easy or fast.
