When two pieces of fabric are joined there is a seam allowance that is ironed under this means that a corner could have 4 or more layers in a single spot. So it turns out when tying the quilt I had to push and pull an extra large needle with yarn through multiple layers of fabric. At times the doubled over yarn in the eye of the needle would be less than willing to slide through, and that is when the pliers comes in handy. Yes, I did pull the needle and stab myself once. And yes, it hurt. I didn't cry, but I did bleed a little. So not only did I have to focus on all the other things going on, but I also had to focus on not bleeding on the quilt. Will my responsibilities never end?
