Don't get me wrong. This quilt was not devoid of angst or stress.
Piecing the quilt wasn't an ordeal at all. It was a bit tedious making all those half-square triangle quilts, but I needed a nice mindless piecing project at that point in the year. I decided to amp up the simple construction with some high-powered quilting.
All that pebble quilting makes for a striking effect, but it's definitely not the kind of quilting that's associated with immediate gratification and quick closure to a project.
In the end, though, I'm so glad I decided to take my time on it and just enjoy the process. Well, except for the laundering part. I enjoyed the rest of it, though.
