Sunday binding and appliqué......

My slow stitching last night was hand stitching a binding finish!  I started free motion quilting it last week but it was not going well.  I think the machine needs a spa day for cleaning. I pulled that all out and just did a walking foot wiggle on it Saturday. While Emily was playing with her half square triangles.... I was able to make the blue binding and press it. I quickly attached it  after baths and reading last night. Since this is a little quilt (43x33) I was able to finish the hand stitching of the binding last night.



That leaves some appliqué for today's slow stitching. I have two more blocks prepped for the 1857 quilt.

A few mice are back basted and ready for needle turn applique.


Head on over and see what others are slowly stitching today at Kathy's Slow Sunday Linky party.

I love the look of samplers - I have not tried back basteing aplique- is it good for beginners to learn?

Lots of hand stitching accomplished this weekend. A cleaned machine is a good thing.

Congratulations on getting finished, even if your machine wasn't cooperating. Enjoy your peaceful applique.

That's quite a lot for slow stitching! Your quilt turned out so well and those mice are beyond cute.
