I am all stitched out!
I had forgotten how long it takes to complete the quilt after finishing the actual quilting.
I haven't finished a quilt for about two years. I did piece two quilt tops and quilted another while we were on our mission but I didn't actually finish any of them.
There are five finishes in a quilt (if it will be hung on a wall).
1. The applique and piecing finish.
2. The quilting finish.
3. The binding finish.
4. The label finish.
and finally. . .
5. The hanging sleeve finish. GASP!!!
I guess there are really six finishes if you count the cutting out.
This project seems to be taking a long time. I know part of it is because it is such a pretty quilt and I am anxious to see it done.
The other part is I AM AS SLOW AS PUDDING!!!
PS Hopefully tomorrow I can post about a complete and absolute finish with a picture.
