Slow stitching Sunday

After a very busy day yesterday, I enjoyed some sewing time today and some hand work.
After a little girl woke us up around 7:30 telling us ' It's Mornin' she decided she was hungry and wanted to go out for breakfast. We hit Ihop and had a good breakfast.... she was hungry and ate her whole smiley face pancake!

After we got home I was able to finish off my needle turn applique for my Midget block this week in between reading some books to Emmy. I forgot to take a picture of those pieces but they were quarter circles onto a 1 and 5/8 inch block. Can you say tiny?

After running a few more errands and having lunch - Em and Daddy took naps so I got to SEW!!!! I got this top put together today. This is completely from stash and yes, I was out of the green and cream fabrics I used in the hour glass blocks. I think it came out ok.

Tonight I hope to finish off this little 12 inch block from a quilt block along last year. I just have a little of the inner border and then the outer border to go. I have one more of these blocks ready for quilting.... I guess it is time to go back and make some more of them.

Head on over to Kathy Quilts and see what other slow stitches are being taken today.


  1. So glad you had time for slow stitches today! Congrats on a finished quilt top!

  2. I sandwiched a miniature today to get ready to hand quilt. Just can't decided what to do yet. I find it hard to decided what kind of quilting to add to a little quilt. Love the stars!

  3. I love this quilt you are hand quilting. I am hoping someday, before my fingers no longer work, that I can try just one hand quilted project. It's pretty intimidating to me though!! :-)

  4. Gee, I don't know which of those two I like best ... they're gorgeous!

  5. I love how your quilt top turned out :D

  6. I'm a big fan of 9-patches in every color and style. Such a classic.:)

  7. Love your nine patch quilt! The green border and hourglass blocks really set the blocks off nicely.
