While I don't have a complete finish to show, I did get some things done on the Climbing Lanterns project this week. After languishing for almost a year in a state of in-between, I am happy to say that it is finally ready for quilting and binding.
The top is done. Yay!
I was going to baste it a few days ago but realized I didn't have a backing ready. So I made one.
Then work got in the way of basting it...until this evening, when I had an unexpected night off.
So those are my steps worth celebrating this week—top done, backing made, quilt basted.
And now, on to the part I am unsure of the most. Anyone else get butterflies the moment the presser foot goes down over your project and the quilting foot starts hopping?
Well, I made myself this visual aid to spur me on, use as a mantra, or possibly throw darts at if things go badly. A reminder to just do it, already.
Whatever it takes, right? Now, deep breaths...
