My husband and I started an exercise program called Couch Potato to 5K this past summer. It’s a phone app. The app starts with a warm up, followed by one-minute runs and one-and-half minute walks. During our “training” one morning, I commented that “little by little” we would reach our goal– just like quilting. To document our progress, I made a small block representing how far we had gone each day.
But, once football practice started, we stopped running and we didn’t run a 5K. I did, however, make a quilt with the ones I had pieced. Five weeks of running! With such small piecing, resulting in bulk, I struggled with the quilting and used only a few straight lines for each row.
It finished at 26″ by 31″. I entered it into QuiltCon 2019, small quilts category, and it was accepted.
I’m sure there is a moral to this story.
