I started this a little while ago...it has been a pick-up and put-down type of project. If I'm honest, it's been more down than up. I think it is because I was never really prepared for all of the stitching around the appliqued fabrics pieces and then all of the back stitched details and french knot eyes...
It really is a beautiful quilt and I do like the fabrics that were used for the kit when I bought it a few years ago - ok, it was 3 years ago. I just need things to move faster sometimes when I'm making things and I get distracted and side tracked by other beautiful quilts and projects.
So i am putting it out there that I will not start another applique/stitchery quilt until this one is done.
