the big finish
I looked at the quilt in disbelief.
It looked back, all finished and sassy-like.
"Woo hoo!!" he yelled back.
He must have known I secretly wanted hollering.
last August, when it was way too hot to think of quilts. By September, I was choosing fabric and getting started. In November, I finally finished cutting and piecing squares and started quilting it by hand. January came, and I was still quilting by hand. My hands can only move so fast.
I have missed every single goal that I set for myself for finishing the quilt. But on March 25th- the real date of completion- I didn't even care. Aside from graduating from college, this may be the biggest long-term project I've ever completed. I couldn't be prouder.
