So, the autumn sunrise with birds quilt is finally done. This has definitely been one of those projects that runs away with you. Once the quilt develops a mind of its own, there’s not much to do but follow its lead. With this one, the stitching just seemed to go on forever. On top of that, I always spend too much energy worrying about whether a commission will meet the expectations of the client. That makes it harder to work on it as it gets closer to being finished. But, tackling one small section at a time seems to have finally done the trick, and I’m happy with the results! I’m especially fond of the juncos and the foreground – time to go shopping and replenish my supply of leafy browns and greens!
