One Step Closer to Finished

Hot off the presses! The quilting is finished and marks are about to be removed. When the marks are removed, it will be squared up and the binding and hanging sleeve will be attached. I may even add a few crystals for the center star. I'm pleased.

A Little Bit Of Pressure aka Procrastination

The pressure is on.

This silk Vintage Compass is due next Tuesday to be photographed for a special exhibit at the MN quilt show this June. I slapped on some blue registration lines yesterday, loaded it, and decided, "JUST QUILT IT ALREADY". I really don't know why I do this to myself. But, I promise, it will be done.
