Shakespeare in the Park quilt top

This quilt top has been quilted for quite some time now...

The binding has been attached for quite some time now...

I loved the Ricky Tims commercially dyed print & not solid light to go with it for long enough to keep them together with the pattern for quite some time.

I love how it turned out...

I'm not so sure (right now) that I like it enough to spend the time needed to finish the binding...

Sad? Lesson on getting things done more quickly? Am I alone?

No, you are not alone. I tend to slow down when it comes to binding quilts.....not my favorite thing to do. Years may pass before I get to it....really!!

It's a beautiful quilt! Maybe once you start putting the binding on, you'll fall back in love with the fabric.

Adding a sleeve is what slows me the most (because of the hand stitching and my tempermental thumb joint).

I think it's fabulous! I hope adding the binding rekindles the love. It would be a shame for this to go unfinished.

Its a beautiful Spring quilt - you should definitly finish it. I think it looks like it is singing.

Oh - it is worth finishing all right! You never know whose favorite quilt it will become and then you will be happy that it is done and being used and loved! Maybe a family snuggle quilt? It is one of my favorite patterns - I have made 3 and have a 4th started... I have gifted 2 of them so far... Looks good. Love the short format of your posts - busy Momma! Cheers! Evelyn

Did you ever finish this?
I'm a totally new quilter (just doing a few scrap quilts to practice) but am hoping to do this "Shakespeare in the Park" pattern next. Thanks for the inspiration with such a beautiful quilt!
