sandwiched


So I've known my new friend for less than a week, and I already have her helping me sandwich my quilts. (Thanks Hjordi.)
I'm ready to start quilting this one, and I always get nervous before beginning. There are a few reasons: because I know that quilting makes the quilt and I am using different batting than usual. I wanted this quilt to be a bit more poofy, just for a change of pace and I am hoping that I don't regret this choice when it is all said and done.
Gee whiz, I can even make quilting stressful.

You are so goofy! Just do it, you know it will turn out good, it always does! : )

This part always slows me down, mostly due to the fact that I have a hard time deciding how to quilt it in the first place, and also because I'm so afraid of screwing up!

It sounds like you have made a very good friend indeed.

ha ha! how funny, i'm planning a quilt SO similar to this one! it looks amazing, maybe i won't ever show mine - you'll outdo me for sure!

The quilting is the scariest part because it can make or break the quilt. Normally about halfway through I just hate the whole thing, but when it's done it's nearly always quite successful. Good luck on this one!

I've stopped working on my first quilt. I'm so terrified I'll screw it up!!! The top is finished and I'm almost finished piecing the back. The actual quilting part is what's KILLING me!

I would never have guessed that you would be nervous. You'll do a great job. You always do.

What are you going to do with this one? I need to get going on my blue and yellow one, and then another, and now that Emili and Nate are engaged, yet another one.

It will feel better when you've started! the quilt looks delicious (if that's possible...), makes me want to start a big quilt again.

I only quilt small things because I'm afraid of quilting bigger ones! I can't wait to see the finished product!
