That Special Moment in Quilting

I spent most of Friday quilting a quilt on Lucy the longarm.

And by Friday late afternoon took the quilt off Lucy:

I was VERY pleased with the sort of mustard gold thread color I used as it worked really well on the front and the back:

I trimmed the quilt, sewed on the binding, and am now spend my nights sewing it down:

I cut up all of this quilt’s scraps–so that “the decks are cleared” so to speak.  And THAT is the special quilt moment–and it’s so special because it’s time to let other projects emerge, to let my imagination dance, to move on into the quilting future.

Fabrics for a new and much needed purse:

The pulling out of fabrics all folded together for another long-planned quilt:

And the return to the quilt blocks that call to me often, often:

Oh my goodness!  Quilting is so exciting!
