As my friend Frank used to say.... "Amen brother Ben, crack a louse, kill a hen!"
She said this when she was excited. I have no idea what it means. I say it when I am excited too.
Today I am beyond excited. I have finished my quilt.
I am very happy with how it turned out. I am pretty sure I am going to have very pleasant dreams sleeping under it. As soon as I forget how sore my hands are right now and how many times I got stuck with a pin today.
There is no pattern for this quilt. I approached the project with an idea in my mind of the quilt that I wanted. It changed as I went. That, plus complete ignorance of the rules of quiltmaking, can make things interesting. I am looking forward to looking at some quiltmaking books now. Before I start my next one. Which won't be for a year or two. I want to tackle some smaller projects first. Like maybe a pillowcase.
