Easy Street!!

All I can manage to say after completing this quilt top is "Oh my god, Oh my god, Oh my god!!"....I sewed and sewed, then sewed some more, I pushed myself so hard because I wanted it done done done!!  It got to the point where I told my husband that I didnt really think I even liked it...so I was really pushing myself to finish.  Here it is...
Its huge, it Ginormous, its fantastic, its a monster, its stupendous!  I cant believe that I MADE IT!  I am blown away, flabbergasted, amazed...completely amazed at how this all came out...its FANTASTIC! 

So heres my question....why do the quilts that are the biggest pain in the butt to make become our favorites when it is all said and sewned?? Huh? Huh? Huh?

  6. Because if it was easy we wouldn't care so much. It's when we work the hardest we appreciate it the most. It's just lovely!
