Slow Sunday Stitching, on an oldie, but a goodie!

I made this quilt some years ago, and some of you might recognize it.  I was so, so careful, to do only my best work, and am amazed when I look at those tiny stitches, now!!! It is my favorite quilt, and I have been hand quilting it for some years.  I have all the center blocks quilted, and I am working on the border.

I take it out from time to time and put a few stitches in, and then carefully put it away.

So...this is my slow stitching project for today!!!

That quilt is drop-dead gorgeous! I hope you can get it finished before long so you can keep it out to see and use every day. Merry Christmas!

Beautiful! I have a block of the month from 2005 that I am doing the same thing with. Quilting the borders on it, too!
