Slow Sunday Stitching

Today is the perfect day for some hand stitching. The last of the colourful fall leaves are dancing around, Thanksgiving is past (here in Canada anyway), Christmas is not yet on the radar.... it's full out quilting time!


I am enjoying the last bits of pretty fall colour while putting big stitches into my sampler quilt.

Progress is slow but steady and the center quilting is about 1/3 finished now ....



Stars - 6 of 20 quilted  

Sashings - 13 of 31 quilted  

Blocks - 7 of 12 quilted

The block on the right is the one I just finished quilting and the one in the hoop has been started.


What are you working on? Link up your blog post about your own hand stitching project and share what you plan to stitch today.

I told my husband that I get an extra hour of sewing today too! You are making good progress on your quilt, Kathy . I will be hand seeming today too.

Such great progress you are making. I think my extra hour will be sewing of some sort when I get home from the very chilly beach. Feels like 41 F this morning!

Today is a great day for hand quilting because it's COLD and it's fun to be snuggled under a quilt while you're quilting it! LOL! :)

Cathy said...

Slow and steady and you will be finished before you know it. Lovely stitching.

margaret said...

your hand quilting is coming along well, I see you use a hoop I have not tried that so next time I quilt I will have a go do you have it tight if so how do you manage to quilt a few stitches at a time please

Love your big stitching! I have a wall quilt here that I want to big stitch - but haven't done it before. Do you have any tips? What size needle do you use? Hope you had a great stitching day!
