i hate this part




"Hate" is a strong word, so maybe "strongly dislike" is more appropriate. I had to use that title because of the song by the Pussycat Dolls that's ringing in my head.

It's ready to be quilted.......am I? Quilting is always the hardest part for me because I nitpick the stitches. Are they too large? Too small? How's the tension? It's just so much pressure. I'm waiting for it to get easier, but I always get nervous just before I get started. That's usually when I start thinking about my next project.

Aren't these the cutest fabrics? The birdies are Moda's Urban Chicks.....I think the line is Sweet. The florals are Amy Butler's Daisy Chain. I can't wait to bind it. This quilt has taken me much longer than expected. My life has been soccer, soccer, soccer. I need some down time to catch up with this project. Truth be told, this is my mom's Mother's Day gift. For 2009, I swear. *Mom, surprise!*

i absolutely understand the fear of quilting. It is usually what holds me up.
