The Restfulness of Stitch

I am slowly getting little parts of my eco quilt spaghetti quilted, It is interesting how not only the visual texture but the hand of the fabric changes as I work on the close stitch lines almost parallel. This is in the essence of boho quilting which was done by hind whereas I am using a chine but it has been interesting to find how the different base fabrics on the squares have been to quilt this closely - the fabrics are cotton, silk and linen. I find it quite soothing to sit and stitch for a while especially in the morning if I can find a break. Everything seems so full on at this time of the year that the slow speed of filling in the negative spaces of the quilt helps restore some sort of normal rhythm
