Worked the weekend
I know you all have seen this quilt before, but I am loving it especially today, because it is hand quilted and made all from old plaids from the thrift store and other places. It is big stitch quilted, all by hand. It is soft and worn and just one of my favorites.
Here is Rosie on the quilt...she is in the middle of whatever I am doing...I love that little doggie!!
Above is my current big stitch quilting project...the latest plaid sampler I made. It is fun to see it all shrunken and becoming so soft and homey looking after stitching and washing.
Twosies!! I have been sewing lots and lots of 1.5 inch squares together; the goal is to make a postage stamp quilt. Here are the first three rows...it is doubled back due to the difficulty of taking a picture of just a long strip.
I have been stealthily cutting a few 1.5 inch squares from every fabric I have, or maybe eek one square out from a scrap...so this quilt is truly a work of scrap!!!
