Hindsight... The ability to have knowledge of an event only after it has occurred.
The path many of us take in our quilting is often a journey in hindsight. Why does it take doing something one way only to realize it should have been done another. At least in this case the redo does not involve picking out stitches. Putting more stitches in is much faster!!original quilt pics on Friday, my client agreed that the quilt looked like it needed more quilting. I knew in my mind it needed more also. I so often am caught between that desire to put more to the quilt design and wanting to watch that cost. I had already put a high number of hours into the quilting, making the PSI on this 52" quilt twice what most might think a quilt this size ought to be charged. I am not an inefficient quilter either. I had not had thread issues which can slow the process, or any picking out. It just, plain and simple, has a ton of detail, lots of stitch in the ditch and LOTS of stop and start on those gold circles. I will take the resulting PSI as learnings to the next highly detailed quilt I am asked to quote.
