I have done a lot of slow stitching this week. I continue thank Kathy of Kathy's Quilts for the weekly motivation!
First off I put together the top for the Hand-Pieced Quilt-Along hosted by Patty of Elm Street Quilts and Kristin of Simple, Handmade, Everyday. I always planned to set it with something other than the background fabric, as I only had small scraps of the background fabric left after making my blocks.
I started the third in the Hospital Sketches BOM by Barbara Brackman. I'm using my Civil War Reproduction fabrics for this. This block is called Love Apple.
I'll put my other activities this week in another post. Linking up with Kathy's Quilts for Slow Sunday Stitching. Thanks again Kathy!
Thanks for stopping by!
Your hand-pieced top is beautiful! I love all the blues, especially the fabric you used for the sashing and setting triangles!ReplyDelete
