Slow Stitching, and update on string quilt, rainbow style!

 I don't know if you can see this well, but I am hand stippling the area inside the pink arcs of the border.  I only have three more little sections to go, then it is on to the white area next to the green binding area!  I am seeing the light at the end of the tunnel.
 I love seeing progress on this quilt, which has been a labor of love for a long time.  This is entirely created by hand and surely qualifies for "Slow Stitching Sunday!"  So...I am linking to Kathy,




HERE!  Please visit her and see what everyone is slow stitching on!





 I am sewing strings together!  I started this I think in January, stalled out a bit, but last night...I did not sleep.  Not a bit sleepy after 3AM!  So I quietly sewed this quilt top together.  WHOOP!!!  Making hay while the sun does not shine...hahahaha!
I need the top and bottom border, and then the scrappy outside border made.  A lot happened last night, and I am grateful for the quiet time to sew.




I am linking to Angela, HERE!  for Rainbow quilts.  We are working on orange this month, so I am showing green.  REBEL!!!  Not really...I have been sewing orange, too...but I think you have all seen those blocks too many times already.




Also, I am linking with Lori, at Humble quilt, HERE.  We are using our strings to make quilts there.


OK, off to do some real housework and cooking now!!

If you can't sleep, might as well quilt and make good use of the time!
That's probably bad advice since rest is also good for you... but is it as good as stitching!?!?!? LOL

LOVE LOVE LOVE your fabrics in your applique! NICE work.
Who cares if it's done slowly?? Whatever you get done is more than you had done the day before!
;-)
hugs,

I love the quilt in the first picture. Are the green triangles pieced, applique or are they Prairie Point? I'm curious. I love, love, love your green string quilt. The sashing is so Julie! I adore! ;^)

Oh how I love a rebellious soul!! Your pieced this pretty in the wee hours of the morning...really?? Wow I am impressed; it is gorgeous. Love the quilt you are lovingly hand quilting. It most certainly looks as if a lot of love has gone into this beauty.

A completely hand-stitched quilt! It looks like a beauty.

Love, love, LOVE your "Midnight Meanderings" quilt top!!! Sorry that you couldn't sleep. I feel you fatigue, as I had the same problem a couple of weeks ago.

Karen said...

Your applique quilt is looking so pretty with the quilting. Bringing it to life.

Lori said...

The hand quilting is lovely as well as the entire quilt! Will you keep this one?

The green strings are fun! I love how green everything is around Central Oregon! It won't be that way long.
