After a marathon 2 days of sewing, I can finally count this top as finished. Not only that, but the backing is done, and I am going to load this on the machine, and get it quilted. I am going to try an add that as another self discipline thing, to quilt tops as they are finished, rather than leave them hang there. I have a few that have been waiting to be quilted for at least 3 or 4 years. And then, there are a few that are hanging there, because I'm not sure what to do with them. The all over pantograph ones are easy. It's the sampler types that I have, that really need to have the squares treated individually that have me stumped. I think I need to do some webshots browsing, or blog browsing to get some ideas for them. But, that is a New Years thing. For now, I'll be happy to get this one done. It was a huge challenge, with lots of little pieces, and I don't think I'll do another of them, but I like the way it turned out.
