Staying With The Process
I've completed the handstitching on this quilt now, so all the loose edges are secured and I'm ready to quilt. This is where I feel the urge to push the baby out and have done with it, yet I know from experience that even after the quilting, there is the embellishing, binding, sleeve and signature - more steps before I can move on to a next quilt - more 'labour' that can seem like it takes forever. I am very interested in exploring new designs and techniques, so I can feel impatient to get doing that, but first I will stay with this piece and give it its due.
