Wednesday - Quilting is a workout
Wednesday, May 08, 2013
Man - decided to stay at home tonight and working on my quilting of my flying geese quilt. Wow what a workout. Moving the fabric up and down and in swirls for an hour and a half really gave my arms and shoulders a work out. I know it doesn't count towards normal exercise but it sure beats watching TV and I got my quilt almost competed. Still need to work on getting the right tension as I did have my spider stitches on the back every now and then. But phew.....
OK I know you non-quilters are laughing to think that sewing is a workout. But you try to move a lapsize quilt (65" x 72") around a regular sewing machine to get your stitching over the entire top!! That dang thing is heavy!.
