The Sorrow of Finishing

All quilters know that done is beautiful. We work hard to get that last stitch in the label, and congratulate ourselves when it happens. I think it is also time to acknowledge the sorrow of finishing. All those beautiful fabrics and threads that had kept us so enthralled for so long are now locked in place. Our story as a work-in-progress together is over, the quilt’s story as a completed piece is beginning. Sometimes, I feel even more sad when the quilt is as beautiful as I hoped it would be. In a way, it’s like watching the last beautiful flower just before the plant goes dormant for the season. Is that just me, or do you sometimes feel that way?

Luck and wisdom!
