Slow stitching!! (and some fast lane stitching too!)
I have been working on hand quilting this little quilt. These are all left over 1/2 square triangles, from other projects. Yep, I saved them...I save them all! Wish I could have found a brighter pink for the border...NOT!!! I am surprised at how the photo looks, LOL!
I made a mistake and did not trim them down...big mistake. The accuracy is lacking! But hey...live and learn, and I won't do that again. It is fun to work on the hand quilting!!
I have completed the applique part of this free project, starting last fall. This is from Lisa Bongean's blog, and other designers, and I tried to stay caught up. I still need to add a bit of embroidery to some of the blocks, and set them all together. It will be fun Christmas quilt when completed!!
Tada!! I am done with the binding on Bonnie Hunter's mystery quilt!! This was done by the Magic Binding method. Fast!!!
and complete! That is a good thing...
And the label. I am still working on hand appliqueing that down. But almost there, and then to clip all the threads. Yahoo!!!
