Lesson learned: If I don’t wish to make a quilt and my whole being says “no”, don’t say yes. This was such a quilt. And when my heart isn’t in it, it just doesn’t turn out like it could have.
I will bind it later and someone will be toasty warm.
This quilt has been a challenge from the beginning and quilting has caused more problems than the rest. I did end up getting the machine cleaned and now it runs much more smoothly. So while that was happening the quilt stayed on the machine partly done.
