Snowball Night: Week 55½

Consider the postage stamp: its usefulness consists in the ability to stick to one thing until it gets there. –Josh Billings

I'm glad I didn't wait for the water soluble thread. Because I would still be waiting instead of really close to finished with the quilting.

OK, so 'really close' is a relative term. I estimate that it will take me about 6 hours to do those flourishes in the corners of the snowballs and then two or three hours on the borders, depending on what I do {I'm thinking feathers, but does anyone have any suggestions?}. When you consider that I've already spent between 23 and 25 hours on it, nine more hours is 'really close.' And with that, I'd better get back to it.

Love your quilting. I've been practicing on 12" blocks and hope to try a larger project. Maybe I will even be as good as you. Hugs.

I just think it's cool that you don't have to send your quilts away anymore to get finished by someone else. Good for you!

LOVE those little curlicues! It's looking so good. You must have the patience of a saint, and an extra measure of perseverance!
