Hitting a milestone is a great feeling, even if there are many miles left to go. I’ve finished stippling around the outside edge of the king size quilt now, and just have the inside setting squares left to do. I’m seeing light at the end of that tunnel! I’ve put the binding on and I’m stitching it down today and tomorrow. Trimming the excess batting and backing off the edge makes it a bit more manageable when stippling the inside squares. I’ll be able to finish the quilt in time to photograph it and send it off to it’s first show, the 37th Annual National Quilting Association Quilt Show, in Columbus, Ohio, June 8-10, 2006. So, now it’s time to start really thinking and planning the next quilt design; I’ve chosen the fabrics and worked on it a bit, but now I can begin to get serious.
