Next phase

I went to the quilting store this afternoon and bought the remaining material I need to complete my quilt. The woman there was soooo friendly and she took the time to answer my questions. I'm excited to finally be at this level.

I have to create my backpiece, then lay down the batting and top piece. Then comes the long grueling part.....the actual quilting. Since this is my first attempt at quilting, I'm not using my machine. I'm doing it by hand. I made the comment that I can se this thing being complete by the end of the month. She laughed.

I guess I won't be done with it as quickly as I thought.

I guess not. Not if she laughed. Have fun with it.

That's why I don't quilt. SO much time, and people never realize how much effort it took. Good luck! And stick with it!

Yeah, I started the quilting part this evening.....It is definitely going to take longer than I anticipated. Ok, so maybe it'll be done by May.....

By hand is the only way to have a true quilt though. It's tedious and time consuming but well worth the results.

If you find it's something you want to do again maybe a quilt rack would be worth investing in.

Wow, guess I better check every where I have commented tonight. Seems my alter ego, "Cyndy" has finally taken over.

I can't believe I'm doing it by hand! It's coming along though. I have completed 3 squares....only about 27 more to go. :)
