The "O" Moment

I FIGURED IT OUT...

WHAT I ENJOY MOST ABOUT QUILTING... I KNOW WHAT IT IS NOW

For a while I thought it was selecting a pattern...

or sewing the first block...

or buying the fabric (yes , oh yes, moan moan)

BUT now I know

My "O" moment in quilting...

That moment that makes me sound like Meg Ryan in 'When Harry Met Sally"...

IT'S TRIMMING THE YUCKY EDGES - THAT'S IT...


I just finished this UFO from at least three years ago - a sweet little baby quilt... and trimmed off the extra batting and backing - and OOOH LA LA DID IT FEEL GOOD!!
If I were in an old romance movie, I'd go have a cigarette!
Everybody keep having fun quilting,
Kate

Love it how cute is that!! I think about that too and wonder what my favorite part is about the whole process:)

Oh, yeah! Or pressing the block or tops flat...it is just an adreline rush for sure. Chaos into order.

I really like that *aha* moment, too. I just finished a lotto block quilt in purples and yellows and when I held it up after it was bound I get that warm feeling that a kid just might like it! What a joy ...

Your green and yellow quilt looks like it's going to give you the same feeling! Happy quilting!
