I started this memorial quilt in August of 2010 I finished the last stitch in April of 2011. Shaved a month off my finishing time. One more step to being a more proficient quilter.
Of all the things I learned and practiced on this quilt, my mitered corners are truly my favorite thing. They came out very good. Straight and well folded. I love them! I’m proud of that work!
The whole thing is beautiful and I just love it! I can’t wait to iron it and get it pressed so that it’s presentable. Can’t wait to hand it over to my friend’s family.
It’s funny how in the middle of the process when you are just starting out, it’s only a thought. An idea. Even just a dream. You see the colors in your mind, the pattern laid out before you even begin cutting. Then slowly it starts to come together.
As a quilter, I love the beginning and the end. The middle of the project makes me nervous because what I envision and what starts to come together rarely matches and I worry I’ve made a mistake. But once the whole thing is laying before me, stitched and bound and pressed, I’m in awe that I could ever worry.
