Ah, it feels so good to be done. I finished my portion of this little quilt last night (the quilting, the binding, attaching the label, and mailing it to its final destination). I was so nervous about quilting someone else's work (let alone THREE someone else's!), and I knew that my machine quilting would not do their work justice. So it ended up being perfect timing for me to learn how to hand quilt. I plugged away at this little quilt many a night (now I wish I had tallied up the hours it took for this beginner), so, although my little stitches may not be as tiny as they should be, and although I didn't try quilting any fancy patterns, there was a whole lotta love and time that went into finishing it up, and I feel quite proud.
And now it's the fun part for me -- waiting for a fun finished quilt to arrive at my door!
