It also felt very natural to hand quilt it. The fact that it would take its time only added to my pleasure to spend more time with it. It's also the first time I used the overhanging backing fabric to bind it. Another decision I'm very happy with.
Diamond is my 29th quilt completed so far. I can't really say why but it is very dear to me. Probably because I feel I created it very carefully, giving and taking all the time it needed. No rush, no impatience. Just letting it grow and mature. Also leaving it alone for a while and work on other projects instead if I felt I needed more time to think it over. Now that it's done I'm not almost sad it's over as with earlier works. I feel joy and happiness and a deep sense of accomplishment.
