A quilted Coin top..... ready for slow stitching.

I had a wonderful 3 hours in the sewing room today with my machine. Oh how I missed it!
I have my snail trail blocks sewn into rows. Maybe later tonight I'll sneak back in there and sew the rows together to make a top.
Then I threw the walking foot on the machine and did some straight lines on the coin quilt. Swapped to the open toe foot and made some fun swirly circles in the big open white spaces on this quilt and in the border.


I cut some fabrics that I used in the quilt to make the binding (I knew there was a reason I didn't put those fabrics away!) and got that sewn down to the top of the quilt. That leaves me with some nice binding to sew down this evening after the kids are in bed. I even remembered to make an 8x8 square that I folded in half and placed in the corner for a label while sewing down the binding.
It feels so good to have the energy to sew again.

Head on over to Kathy's Quilts and see what other slow stitching projects are being worked on today.

Those swirly circles are just adorable. Glad you had the energy to sit at the machine for a bit. Quiet binding time sounds like the perfect Sunday plan.

So happy to hear you're back to quilting. I still haven't made it to my machine. It's getting mighty lonely.
