There is a stage in quilting when things just look downright messy. If you were someone who had never seen a quilt before and you came upon a quilt at this stage, you would wonder - seriously - what the big deal is.

Then the quilter, in all of her glory, simply and painlessly attaches the binding.

And then - as the person who has never seen a quilt before - you get it. Suddenly you would insist on having a pillow, a cup of tea, some reruns of Little House, and the newly bound quilt to lay across your lap.
You would fully understand at that point, that quilts are a big deal.
