Persons with T1D know that insulin injections are hard on the skin and muscle tissues. That's why they're taught to "rotate" their injection sites.
At the end of last month, I figured it was about time I rotated my stitching, too -- at least the stitching that represents those insulin injections. So...I moved from the upper arms to the abdomen/buttocks. (Remember, this is a two-dimensional piece, so that area on this body form serves for both.)
This part of the quilt is very large, and I felt I couldn't keep it from puckering -- hence the introduction of a hoop into the process.
As I stitched, I remembered how my DH used to floor me when he injected his hind end. He was amazingly flexible, and could turn his body in such a way as to do it with apparent ease, twisted like a pretzel!
Stitching continues on the other areas too...
