This quilt is ready to quilt....
Then I designed this quilt and finally quilted it today. Now to bind it.
So.... the Mermaid quilt
It took me three hours to decide on fabrics and to cut everything out.
Probably another three hours to blanket stitch it.
Then another three hours to quilt it.
So that is nine hours.
That does not count for actually coming up with the idea, drawing out the figures and deciding on how to place them and what to add and not add.
Most of us do these things for the love of quilting, the love of creativity, the excitement of chosing the fabrics and watching the project take place.
I am in it for the creativity...what are you in it for? What do you like best? If this was not a customer quilt, it would probably be sitting to be finished. Once the top was created, I was done and ready to go onto the next fun thing.
So what are you in it for because obviously something keeps us going?
