I think that getting a quilt top done is more satisfying than getting one quilted. There is such a sense of accomplishment in doing that last seam. I've been working on this for 4 hours this morning to get it done and can't help a big grin!
The backing needs to be washed and the top needs a good pressing but, the hard part is over. Yeah, I say that like the quilting isn't going to be hard. Please, please, please let my machine do a good job. If it will straighten up and sew right, I'll take care of the rest.
