I’m at the shop and don’t have anywhere to take a good shot of the entire quilt top, but I do want to show off the 4 corners, all posing together:
Aren’t they pretty?
What I REALLY want to do is load the backing up and get started quilting this baby, but it’s going to have to wait a bit. Some other stuff is in before it in the quilting queue. Plus, I know that as soon as I do load, I’m going to suffer from complete and abject terror at the thought of actually quilting it. My brain is a strange place. On the one hand, I’m in love with this quilt and can’t wait to quilt it, because hey, quilting is WHAT I DO, and most of them I’m pretty good at it…
But on the other hand: I’m my own worst critic, and will worry the ENTIRE time that I’m screwing it up. I’ll try to keep the angst to a minimum.
Plus, once it is quilted and bound, it will go to a new home, and I’ll never see it again, and I’ll always worry about it.
So yes, there will probably be a little angst.
And yes, my customer does read the blog, and is probably now wondering a bit about my sanity. It’s OK, really! I’m having fun! Truly!
