I have been neglecting my baby quilt! It's my first and I think what happened was that I became dissatisfied with some of my "early" work on it, as I have improved a little bit in skill. The last two nights I've been fixing what I can but now I have to finish it and get it out of my house!

It is sandwiched and the center part is nearly all quilted and the ends "hidden" in the batting. I can't tell you how many ends I had because I didn't trust myself to leave the needle down and turn the quilt, so I stopped and started "numberous" times, as a coworker/friend would say ;-) . Lol. Lots of thread. Lots.

Last night I repressed and pinned the border, so it is ready to be quilted. Now just the "doing" of it.

What I have left: 1) to requilt what I have unsewn--I have ripped out what I can't live with! About eight to ten areas. 2) Quilt the piano key border. I'm not doing every key, but every 3 or so. 3) Trim and then bind the quilt.

I can do it, I can do it...

YOU CAN DO IT!!! Keep at and post pics so we can all cheer for you! Just think of it like this. You finish this one and "get it out of the house". Then you can start taking all you learned doing this one and use all those skills to make an even better one!

Thanks for the encouragement! I appreciate it very much. I did not get to work on the quilt tonight. I had to do some painting. Tomorrow night, though, I'm hoping to make some progress!
