Almost Finished

All the hand stitching is completed now and I am ready to sew the binding on, which I hope to do later this evening. The light is lousy today as it is pouring rain... so these are the best photos I have to show...


I struggled a bit not just with that whole perfection stuff, but also with the balance between overworking the stitching and under-working the stitching, and staying true to my initial vision... Hoping I got it right.


I will post pics of the whole (and finished) quilt later this week, assuming the sun comes out to play. :0)

Damn this rain! (normally I wouldn't say that because I love a good drenching rain, but I'm so looking forward to seeing the final piece!)

It's perfect, Victoria! Can't wait to see a picture of the whole piece. We have the same problem with proper daylight here as well...

Well it sure is looking super so far!!! I hope the sun comes out to play because I really want to see the completed piece. I have to say, that the photos you've posted look fine to me considering the lousy weather :)

What a wonderful piece! Totally agree with the "too much--not enough stitching" angst. Looks like you got this one just right.
Like everyone else, very anxious to see the entire piece.

I recently got a computer virus and wasn't able to check e-mail or go online. All I could think about was the fact that I was missing the progress on this quilt. I think I'm getting a little obsessed! I'm glad I haven't missed the "Grand Unfurling." I think it looks positively lovely. I'm sure you got it just right!
