A few days ago I hung this quilt on my loungeroom wall...stood back & admired it...and thought of it's long journey to that place.
It was begun many years ( probably > 10yrs) in a workshop with Sue Cody. First attempt at needleturn applique...unsure about picking colours.
Because it was harder than what I was used to, work progressed slowly...then we moved...renovated one house, then began building another. Children grew... husband's changed jobs...I did some study...then some more...all the time this was hiding in my cupboard.
About 3 years ago I finished the applique on the sawtooth border, & put it away to be hand quilted...it slept again!
Late last year I pulled it out, mentally gave myself a talking to & sent it off to be machine quilted...no more procrastination ( I thought...hehe).
It came home & sat waiting to be bound!
Well, now it's finished & hanging...
sewn without haste, after all these years I do love it!
