Sunday....

I have done a lot of hand work this week. I do see some in my future today as well.

I think I will put a good 30 minutes of hand quilting into the quilt on the frame this afternoon! I am going to try and concentrate on putting at least 15 minutes in on it every day this week. We will see how I do. It seems that if I don't actually stitch on it, no progress is made! Imagine that =) I hope that will be enough to finally be able to roll it next weekend. The maroon is ready to roll so I just have the yellow and sage green to hand quilt

I made progress on the red dresden plate and plan to prep the light blue one for hand quilting in the car line this week. I still need something in those border squares of red..... but that should go quickly. I did an X in the purple ones and I might do a small melon shape in the red.
Red Dresden almost done.

Purple is done for now.
Ready to prep the next one in light blue.
It will be cold here in Florida this week (I know, cold is relative  and it is nothing like the temps up north) so I might be snuggling under this spring blooms quilt while adding some hand stitches into each of the flowers. Maxie cat did let me finally finish the binding on this and she has been sleeping on it each night since I am leaving it on the seat of the recliner when I go to bed! Spoiled cat.

Linking up with the Slow Sunday Stitchers today and hoping Kathy is feeling better this week. I am off to shower (the kids just left for Grandma's house - the boy is feeling better and they are heading to see Paddington at the movie theater) and then I plan to head into the sewing room and see what trouble I can get myself into!

Pretty reds in your one Dresden block. I have been having a bit of a problem with reds running when washed. Coming out in a second wash though.

that is the way to get progress on a quilt - know when your quite time is and block it out for some quilting time - looks good

You have some lovely projects to work on the Dresdan blocks are beautiful and the Spring Blooms quilt will keep you warm while stitching those flowers.

You are doing such a beautiful hand quilting. Love the red dresden. Good lucky with your 15 minutes a day, It will work and you will see the progress next weekend.
Have a great week and stay warm.

Your 15 minutes per day sounds like my length of quilting thread per day that I sometimes use / this always works :)

Amazing what you can get done in 15 minutes each day. Those minutes will add up to hours of progress on your quilt!

Hope you enjoyed your sunshiny trip around the world quilting... so pretty!

You did get a lot done this week! I think I have to set a goal to do a certain amount of hand quilting each day as well. I am not making as much progress as I would like.

That’s a terrific selection of slow stitiching. Such pretty projects.
