After moving all my stuff down to the basement I had a fresh look at all my unfinished projects. It was a bit frightening. For that reason, among others, I decided to put two WIPs in one. This is my pieced chopsticks quilt. On the backside is my 'on the edge' quilt. They fit together really well, color and design wise. I only needed to add one strip to the other side to make it work. Now I only need half the batting! Sweet!
So....I was feeling all smug and smart. Then I decided to stipple it all over, but using a small stipple. (I put the quarter in this photo for scale.) That's not micro stippling or anything, but it's probably about a third of the size of my usual stipple. I love it, but I'm not feeling so smug anymore. This is gonna take awhile.
I keep telling myself, 'this will be worth it' over and over...and I will continue to remind myself that...as long as it takes. :)
