Sunday stitching....

Kathy at Kathy's Quilts reminds us to slow down each week, take a deep breath and relax with some slow stitching. It is a great reminder and I plan to get some slow stitching in today - off and on through the day.

I know I need to print and cut out some more shapes for my lemoyne stars...I finished adding the white to these two last night. These are unfinished 5 inches and all hand pieced.


I have this 1857 block that has been back basted for weeks now... and has moved along a little this week. It would be so nice to get this one finished today. Of course, that means I need to prep some more... I think I drew on the back  for the August ones and just need to pull fabrics for them. I really should take a photo of all of the completed blocks so far. One of these days....

Linking up with Kathy's Quilts and the other Slow stitchers.

  2. You must like purple very much. I see it in all of these blocks. The purples in the applique block are oh so pretty.

  6. Your block looks great. I should have done like you did and made the all stems and leaves out of one fabric. I did it the hard way and made each individual stem and leaf. It is quilt bulky where everything overlaps. (But, it's done - gasp!)
