17. Miter the corners of quilt binding.I do it when I make my bed, so I suppose I should do it with quilting. I mean, who knows. The way I'm doing it might suck compared to others!
Done and done. I actually like it. Makes the quilt look clean.
While it's not a REAL guild meeting, I'll probably not join one anytime soon, but I do go to a stitch 'n bitch every week. So, I'm going to count it.
22. Visit Houston for International Quilt Festival.IT'S MY DREAM. But first, I'll have to take out a loan. Or sell a kidney.
23. Have a quilt appraised.The thought of this is scary. What if all your hard work isn't worth but $15? But, then again, what if it's worth $1000? Maybe, I'll take in one of my grandmothers quilts instead.
24. Visit a quilt museum.WHAT. I need to go here. I have been to the Smithsonian in DC and they once had a bunch of quilts from the Revolutionary War and the Civil War on display. *drool*
25. Go on a quilt retreat.I've thought about this. But, I'm scared that I'd be the weirdest one there and everyone would shun me. Maybe if I could convince some of my friends to go...
26. Try curved piecing.
Definitely a must.
27. Miter the borders.I'll try it, but I really like the way I do it now.
Did that within my first year here. It was really awe-inspiring. Made me want to learn how to quilt for real. I should go find another one.
30. Put your quilt in a local quilt show.
I had the opportunity to do that this weekend. But...of course. I didn't finish on time. *sigh* One day, I'll be brave enough, again.
7/15, this time, so, 8+7= 15. So... 15/100. Not too bad.
