The deadlines are closer, some of them have come and gone, and yet I keep on keeping on. I still love my monthly goal list, it just so happens that I am still working on January's list. Pretty sure that I will start off March still working on it. Once the Dallas Quilt Celebration is over, I may be able to re-asses my list and start with a clean sheet, well, minus the one project that has been on there since November. I guess it really needs to move to the top and get done.
Given that it has taken me two years to get the quilting done on this quilt, it has had many names. It took me entering it into the quilt show, having a deadline, to fully commit to getting it done, and I'm glad that I did. I love how the quilting shows in this photo, such great afternoon light.
As far as I know, I broke every rule in hand quilting. I didn't do any marking on the quilt, which was what slowed me down the most, having to make constant decisions on where to go next, at what angel, and how many arcs to use. It is utility quilted with No. 12 cotton thread.
Happy Stitching :)
