Letting go of custom quilts is like letting go of a child. I worry over it, lose a bit of sleep and stress over each individual decision. Unpick, restitch and generally drive myself crazy over little details that no one else will ever notice. Because I am seeing it through a magnifying glass, one section at a time, I see every flaw. I am praying it will all come together in the way I imagined it would. Then I hold my breath, take it off the frame and I am always amazed at how beautifully the piecing and machine quilting come together. I take pictures and then send it on it's way. So sad to see it go. Wish I could hang it on my wall to enjoy for a while.
