  4. This is just so lovely! I can't wait to see the finished product. Binding always makes me nervous too. I need to get over that. You go first. ;) I think the quilting part is easier though. I know you can do it.

  7. What a proof of patience! It takes me months, too, to finish a quilt. Keep going, don't fear, I managed to finish my first quilt, too, and I was just as nervous. During the process of working, you will find out, and surely you will get advice if needed. This is beautiful. Looking forward to seeing it finished!

  20. This is a gorgeous quilt. It feels so happy and as if it has been around for a generation - yet at the same time as if it is brand new.

    Quilting it will be a breeze and very meditative over the next few months. Enjoy that process.
