Sloooooww Stitchin' Sunday!

 I recently did a road trip, and that time is hand quilting time for me.  Above is a little quilt, in my favorite string pattern from Evelyn Sloppy's string book.  I love her patterns!!  I also love the cacophony of colors, nothing matching, just good scrappy fun.
 Hand stitches...Not marked, just going for it. Not perfect, but perfectly fun!
Thank you, Kathy for being the hostess with the mostest on this Slow Stitchin' Sunday!  I am linking to Kathy's blog here.



Have a great day, everyone!!

Thank you for sharing your perfect fun. I just love your dark thread quilting, and you inspire me to be brave about colour choice in quilting thread.

Love those strips set with the black and white sashing! That really makes them pop! I will have to try that.

Someday I want to do dashing like that! The hand quilting looks fun, just as you intended :)

Love hand quilting and especially without tools (just needle, thread and thimble)

Love love the string piecing with the plaids. The sashing sets it off perfectly...very nice!

Sandy said...

Sweet. I'm inspired to dig out my plaids now. And ditto on the dark stitching - very effective!

Sandy said...

oh that's so funny, I was looking at your plaid quilt! (obviously my brain is sloooooww this morning, lol!)you have to admit is "is" similar to the small one you just finished. Both are lovely, and inspiring!
