Sunday slow stitch prep work.

Rosa asked for a close up of the hand quilting. My qualifier is I am a beginner and there are tons of seams on this 12 inch finished block. Everyone has to start somewhere right?

Then I did some prep work for some applique. This is from the Lori Smith pattern of small quilts #4. I am working on these from a quilt along over at Jo's Country Junction. The more I do applique the more I find I really enjoy it. This is what I will be working on this week. I'm linking up with Kathy over at Kathy Quilts for her slow stitching Sunday.

I've only tried hand quilting once. I thought it was difficult and gave it up. I like it when I see it done on other's quilts. They seem to achieve straight, pretty lines. Mine were wonky.

For sure we all start somewhere and this is a very challenge place to start! So many seams and small pieces to deal with...congrats on such a great job!
I think I could like applique more if someone else did the prep work for me!! LOL
