Slow Sunday Stitching, 12 Days of Christmas in July Blog Hop

I'm joining Kathy, at Kathy's Quilts for her Slow Sunday Stitching Party.  

One of my goals for the Quarter 3 Finish-A-Long, which I stated here was to embroider 3 of the redwork nursery rhyme blocks.  I started these a long time ago, got 9 blocks of this 20 BOM done.  When my dear SIL was here for a visit recently, I asked her if she would like to make them up for her first granddaughter and she was excited, and said she could put the sashing on and tie the quilt,. The story behind this redwork quilt was that a 10-year-old girl named Helen Wells produced this redwork children's quilt in 1910 using her favorite nursery rhymes and storybook characters.  This week I have finished the Three Blind Mice  block, and Mother Goose block.  Just 1 more block to meet #1 goal on  my list for the Finish-A-Long



I'm linking up with Kathy for Slow Sunday Stitching.




The 12 days of Christmas in July Blog Hop continues for a few more days.  This was organized by Sarah, at Confessions of a Fabric Addict.  Sarah has been having a quilt-a-long as well, of the cutest quilt.   There are some excellent gift ideas, tutorials, and giveaways:

The redwork is gorgeous! I looked up the pattern and fell in love. I'm going to wait before I buy it to ensure it is "real love" and not a "crush"! :) Thank you for sharing.

Your redwork embroidery is lovely, how nice your Sister in Law will help with the construction of the quilt.

Those are two wonderful blocks. All I can say is that little girl had a lot more talent at ten than I've ever had at any time! I'm looking forward to them. Thanks for having all the links on your blog post again, since I'd gotten through Moira's on Sunday and then forgot today! You know, if you ever get rid of the Oceans blog, I'm up a creek, because I go there and click on the link to here. I can't seem to keep this blog name in my head. LOL
