The dangers of quilting
While hand sewing the binding to the back of my latest quilt, I put the needle through my fingernail. It didn't hurt a bit. It was just really cool. This quilt has taken a lot out of me. It is by far the largest one I have done. It took forever to baste the thing, and even longer to quilt it. There has been blood and sweat. No tears, but it's still early. As I write this, the quilt is in the dryer. There is always a bit of anxiety when you wash and dry the quilt for the first time. Fingers crossed it doesn't fall apart.
