I am enjoying the hand quilting process, and hope to complete a block today on Slow Sunday Stitching. Oh how I wish I could quilt all day; however, today is not that kind of a Sunday.
While I quilt, I complete each block before I move onto the next. I then proceed across each row block by block. I assume this is the process how most hand quilters stitch a quilt?
After I complete each row, my eyes and hands are ready for a change. First, it is a pleasure to outline stitch the repro fabrics. as there is a wide variety due to it being a scrap quilt.
Second, I like the ease of a double line straight stitching on the alternate blocks. It is simple and relaxing.
A pleasant surprise is how the half triangles meet on point with the alternate blocks. Have you ever experienced a little surprise as your hand stitching patterns evolve?
On the last day of the 2014 Winter Olympics and the last Sunday in February, may you find a snippet of time for handwork and/or visiting others at Kathy’s Slow Sunday Stitching
