It's Sunday.... which means slow stitching today!

Kathy reminds us each Sunday to relax with some slow stitching and remember to breathe. It is a nice reminder each week to sit back, relax and reflect on the positives from the week.
I finished off an appliqué block this week for the Century Quilt and have two more left to go before this quilt can be put together into a top. I plan to start prepping one of these for appliqué later this evening.

While relaxing after the kids are in bed tonight I plan to add this last row of hexie flowers onto the spring flowers quilt. I had planned to do some more hexagon's for the border... but this pretty batik arrived in the mail this week from Kathi over at KCDesigns and I may incorporate that into the border instead. We'll see what happens over the next week. Thanks so much Kathi for such a beautiful fabric surprise in the mail.

Head on over to Kathy's Quilts to see lots of other amazing slow stitching projects today. Now I am off to work for a few hours. I do love my short 4 hour days at the store on Sunday. Will call you later this evening Mom =).

  4. Your hexie quilt is coming along nicely. The batik looks like it might be a nice complement. You will need to audition it to be sure.

  5. Oh that blue is perfect for a border it picks up a lot of the colors in the flowers. It is always fun to start another applique block, but I hate the prep work. It usually isn't that bad, if I just relax sit down and let myself enjoy it. I guess it is just the thought of starting it and the time it takes

  6. Those are beautiful hand-project you have going. Love the blue fabric but if you put it all around the quilt, won't it steal the show? Just saying. Enjoy your slow stitching evening.

  10. I love your hexies...your flowers are very modern with the white as such a predominant color. That batik might just be the perfect binding to set it off.
