Slow and Steady Wins the Race

August 21, 2010

Back into the perpetual darkness.  "The English Assassin" by Daniel Silva ♦♦♦◊◊

Slow and steady wins the race - I've heard it and said it for most of my life. But I have NO clue what it really means. Is it like the tortoise and the hare thing?

I chose the title because I've realized: I must sew slower than anyone on the planet. Because, although there were some challenges and I did take some breaks, in my mind it shouldn't have taken me until 12:45 a.m. to finish this quilt top.

Is it because I pin everything? There were a lot of points to match... does that take a long time? I was strong and did NOT un-sew blocks that were extra-challenging, I just added an accent strip and moved on.

3SS final
Well, whatever, here's the finished top - Paisley Duck Third Saturday Sampler in Annabelle colorway. In a little over an hour the quilters who've been participating in the mystery BOM at the shop for the last 9 months willl finally get to see how the blocks they've been making fit together.

..aaaand here's a closeup because I think the colors washed out in the full quilt photo.

That's all, folks! I haven't even had my first sip of coffee this morning yet, so I'm off to prepare face the rest of the day!
