|Progress is always sweet....|
I'm not totally pleased about the quilting inside of my basket handles now that I'm seeing it duplicated times 12. It probably could have (should have) been more of the diagonal line grid stuff like the rest of the quilt. Don't even think about telling me to take it out now though. That is so not happening with this quilty lady.... I do think the diagonal lines help accentuate the baskets and I'll be the first to admit that it's probably a lucky end result for me. I'm not always the greatest about 'seeing' the finished product in my mind when I get started, although I do try to thoroughly think things through. Hand quilting just kind of has this incredible ability to slowly mature and ripen a quilt until it can reach it's full potential of beauty. Otherwise, why would we toil away at if for so many crazy hours?
