Oh my goodness. I didn't realize.
REAL quilting is a whole lot of work.
But I am having fun with it.
It just takes...time.
Especially when your 3-year-old derails the process by making the in-process quilt a dinosaur cave. Awww...who could say no?
My son is ready for it to be done. He has claimed it as his because a.) it has his favorite colors red and green in it and b.) it is the dinosaurs' home. Of course.
Next step, binding. I'm a touch nervous about this. Again, this is my first REAL quilt (and I'm learning as I go), and I want it to look pretty and not all wonky. My plan is to iron the binding fabric tonight and maybe cut up the pieces. Hurrah for one step closer to being done!
I'm linking up to the other fantastic works-in-progress at Freshly Pieced. Check them out for inspiration (I know I do)!
