Slow Sunday Stitching.

 I have been spending 30 minutes each night, hand quilting...many of you may recognize this very long, long term project.  I almost have all the blocks quilted!  Yahoo!!
 Rosie likes it.
 My binding project for this week, 30 minutes a night, is this quilt...started in 2011.
And it is done!  I am so amazed at how much I can get done, in 30 minutes a night!





Linking to Kathy's blog...slow Sunday Stitching post!  She always has so many lovely people linking their slow stitching projects, and it is great fun to browse.  enjoy!!

Julie, you are a master of borders! The curves on that first quilt's borders are magnificent! And, of course, the quilt is not less gorgeous! I know the commitment to hand quilting, too. But as you say, with a little time consistently give, we make progress.

Rosie has such good taste 😊
Both of these quilts are beautiful!

That top quilt is a stunner! You are a good example for me. I have a quilt in my hoop that I started hand quilting I think over a year ago--and there it sits. Haven't touched it in months. I should follow your lead with 30 minutes a day.
The Irish chain (double?) is a scrappy beauty! Congrats on that finish!

Gorgeous quilts. Congratulations on getting them finished 30 minutes at a time.

Hand tacking binding is tedious and not my favorite part of quilting.

Beautiful applique' top! love those pinks!! hooray for hand quilting

Lori said...

So lovely! I posted about hand quilting today! I'm going to try the 30 minutes every day and see how far i can get. My hand has been hurting so its harder to stick with. Even more of a reason for me to get it done!

It's nice to have some hand stitching projects. My applique project is at a point where I need to do some machine work before I can hand stitch again. It's really messing with my TV watching time!

So many pretties on your blog of late. AND a handquilted project, too. WOW! Amazeballs! HAHA

Amazing how much can be done consistent use of blocks of time. Quilt is beautiful.

I am always amazed at what just a few minutes a day can accomplish. I have used this method to get in some exercise also. Your quilts are very pretty.

I love your DIC quilt. Would you like to see mine which I did last summer. I have also quilted it with Gammill.
