Last Slow Sunday of 2020

 I spent yesterday relaxing in my recliner with some hand quilting. I'm happy to say all the hand quilting on Book Club is done! 


Now to trim it up and I'm waiting on my helper to press my binding in half - last time I went ahead and did it I got a 'talking to' so she has instructions to get it done this morning so I can attach it and work on the binding by hand today.  I always am surprised when I flip it over to see the back, that the stitches actually look pretty good! Of course, the cats had to inspect it this morning as I was snapping some photo's. Ollie (or Lee Lee as he is called) is on the quilt and Peanut is on the side. 



I did cut out one flowering snowball block with my Accuquilt Go cutter on Christmas day. Isn't it pretty? I remember how long it took me to cut out the one in book club and love how quick the cutter makes this with the curves. This one is bigger, and will make a 12 inch block. If the binding gets done, then this block will get hand stitched as well.


Linking up with Kathy and the other slow Sunday stitchers. Thank you all for all the encouragement over the years and all the beautiful inspiration every week.

Your book club quilt looks lovely with all of your hand quilting! Soon, it will be done and you can move on to the next project!

lovely quilt, so close to a finish! Is the new block the start of a new quilt or just playing around with the cutter? I've been debating getting one since cutting out is my least favorite part.

Happy New Year!

I like the snow ball block looks like fast cutting with the die

Hooray for binding Book Club! That will be such a great finish! It does look like that Accuquilt die will make cutting pieces for the flowering snowball so much easier. I enjoyed sewing that block, but definitely not cutting it out! Are you planning a whole quilt of those?

Cats on quilts, it seems to be something they just cant help themselves from doing, checking out those new quilts!

Nearly there and it will be a lovely finish. I've got a dog who can't help but get on a quilt if I'm putting on the floor to photograph!
