Slow Stitchin' Sunday!

Slow stitchin' here!!   I finished these blocks I think in January...and they have been sitting there looking at me, and I at them.  I had no idea how to set them together.  I tried to set them together with my 6 inch nine patch blocks...nope!  It made the whole quilt dark.  Then...I tried alternate pieced blocks...nope!!  Lost the flowers in that design.  Then 1/2 square triangles...and that is all I saw!!  So...I took my time and just asked my self...what do you want the quilt to look like??  Airy!!  and light...with no heavy piecing.  So...I designed this border and corner stone setting.
Lots of prep time here!!  And lots of applique...but I am liking it!!  Lord of the rings, in the land of the Elves...kind of viney like that!!


So....what are you working on?  And are you going to do the Primitive Gatherings block of the week for summer??  Linda O. and I have been discussing it back and forth...and I think I am going for it!!!


Hope you have a wonderful Sunday, and find time for slow stitching!!

Love love love your sashing choice. I did sign up for PG's SBOW. It's my first time. I'll never keep up, but it will be fun to get them every week and at least start on some of them!

Gayle said...

Delightful! I think the appliqued sashing complements the flower blocks perfectly!

Kate said...

The vines are a perfect solution and the cornerstones add that punch of color that carries your eye across the quilt as the flowers catch your eye, great solution! Applique is so addictive, I am sure you are enjoying it.

Monica said...

Absolutely lovely!!! You are so creative! I would never have thought of appliqueing vines for a sashing. It is just perfect! It is funny how we know what we don't want, but aren't sure what we want. lol

You scored big time with this design, Julie! Before I read what you were trying to achieve I was thinking how airy and pretty the effect is! Excellent job!!

It looks absolutely wonderful. I'm sure a pieced border looked good but just not what you wanted for this quilt.
