Slow Stitching Sunday
Hand quilting! That is what I have been slow stitching on today. Above is a little crumby quilt top that I had stashed in the closet. Over the last few days, I hand quilted in each little scrap. It was fun! And I am glad I just did not throw this one away, which was the immediate urge when I took it out of the closet. I am thinking of a tiny vine applique around the edge.
Another heart quilt...I must have made a metric ton of these. I still have to clip threads on everything! Just keeping it all real here.
I hand appliqued all the circles down on this table runner...still more work to go on this one.
I put a binding on this quilt! I chose the blue, and added a flange. The whole thing is by machine, and took some time, but I like it...'cause it is done!!
Another pic...dear husband commandeered this quilt, and it is in use on the bed already!
I made some Gorp (trail mix) for work...I always pick out the M and M's and eat them first! Just a kid still, I think...
And more progress on the postage stamp. It is a vendetta, now, to finish this up!! LOL!! Each square is one inch finished. I used my rotary cutter, but I remember my grandmother's postage stamp quilt was made by cutting each piece out with dressmaker's shears, after tracing around the square with pencil, using a cut out square, cardboard template from a cereal box!! I am down right spoiled!!
