Hand Quilt-Along, Slow Sunday Stitching

Another three weeks has flown by, and time to report again for the HQAL.  I have been busy with the Hands2Help Charity Project organized by Sarah at Confessions of a Fabric Addict.  I've been doing a lot of quilting, and binding, and sewing the binding down by hand.  I finished one last night.  It is in the wash right now.

This is the flimsy before I quilted it.  These were long ago swap blocks from 2002 I think, I had 4 blocks from Moira @The Quilted Snail, one of which I am using for the label. I also had a block from Susan @Desertsky Quilting.   I'll get better pictures today after I am able to take another, and I need to write another post about progress on the Hands2Help quilts.

The other handwork I've been working on is Hospital Sketches, the applique BOM by Barbara Brackman @Civil War Quilts.     This is a poor picture, it doesn't show the true colors.  Hope to get a better one when I finish.

This Hand Quilt Along is an opportunity for hand quilters and piecers to share and motivate one another. We post every three weeks, to show our progress and encourage one another.  If you have a hand quilting project and would like to join our group contact Kathy at the link below.

Thanks so much for stopping by!


  1. Binding and appliqué, that sounds like my Sunday afternoon today! The finished quilt looks great, I do love all those stars. 😍

  2. Love all those blocks in your flimsy! How striking it looks with all those stars in red, white and blue! Happy stitching on your is lovely.

  3. The applique BOM looks interesting... thanks for sharing with us!

  4. I'm so impressed with your Hospital Sketches. I really like the blocks - was playing around with the coxcomb and bird ideas for where to put the bird, but I'm not adding another applique until I finish the one you just finished! Six blocks to go. Soon. Your quilts are always so well done and nicely designed.
