At last! I just sewed up the last seam on the backing this morning. The binding, I did yesterday and wrapped on a recycled cereal box to keep it nice and pressed. Tuesday I will mail it all off to Deb G. for the quilting (because I forgot Monday is a holiday.) This project, though not difficult in the least, really taxed my patience. I find that I do not enjoy sitting in front of the sewing machine anymore. I would far rather sit and sew or do hand work in my chair in the living room or out on the patio or anywhere else but in front of the machine. Yes, it is gratifying to finish something; yes, I enjoy seeing the fruit of my creativity...but I do not enjoy the machine process any more...what is up with that...?
This is the backing up on the flannel with the quilt top underneath...just makin' sure I covered the top with the back with at least 4" to spare...=-)
