It's All Good...

Sundance and I spent the entire day together on Saturday.  I chose to quilt arcs (which  line up nicely to form "kissing" circles) all over the surface of "Sturbridge Strawberries" using a pretty "toast" colored thread; except for in the appliqué areas where I have free-motioned some little pointy-swirls, and the feathered outer borders. This photo can be enlarged by clicking it for more detail. Interestingly enough I ran across this picture, below, just the other day from a guild meeting back in June of 1997. I did the  program that evening on Round Robin quilts and just happened to bring this top then for show and tell (even though it is NOT a Round Robin quilt). It's hard to believe that this one's been shelved, and waiting, (with the binding all prepared!?!) for the last sixteen years; but that's the truth!
One thing I have learned is that the longer one waits for something the more one appreciates it when it's a reality; for, after all, anything worth having is worth waiting for (which makes the worth of this one astronomical!). Stay tuned for the finish and the hanging, I'm in the homestretch and on a roll now...
and it's all good...
Life is Good!
