|"It's The Journey" ~ 48" X 60"|
All good journeys must, eventually, come to an end. I put the final quilting stitches in this quilt today... it's been a long road to the finish line. It all began here, just over a year ago; with what was known as the Head For The Border challenge at my LQS. There were some false starts, more than a few stumbling blocks, and many, many decisions along the way. The quilting was just as challenging for me; a wide variety of components tested my abilities every step of the way! This evening I've been trimming the edges and preparing the binding. Just like with every great trip I'm rewarded, at this final juncture, with a wealth of happy memories; from the initial planning to all the stops and sidetrips taken in transit. My plan is to hang this wallhanging between the two front windows in the studio, directly over Snowbird; it will serve to remind me that life never is about the destination... it's always about the journey. All in all, it's been a great adventure, thanks for riding along with me!
Life is Good!
