Slow Stitching Sunday

I got the binding on the cheddar quilt yesterday and started the handwork..

I really enjoy the handwork of binding while watching TV. Hubby found a great movie for us to watch last night also. It was called Marvellous and starred Toby Jones. It is the true story of a learning impaired man and his adventures. It was produced by BBC. You can read more about it here. I think he got the movie from Redbox.

I just love how quilting adds the beautiful texture to a quilt!

This vintage top has quite a few age spots on it. It is a bit risky, but I will probably wash it when I am done. That should add to the texture as well.

One of my goals for December, was to make 12 more sawtooth star blocks. I finished up the last of those yesterday.

    It always amazes me how the quilting on a quilt just transforms it into a stunning beauty. Great job.

    Your quilting is beautiful. I agree that that texture that results from quilting can’t be beat and adds another bit of interest to each quilt. Your sawtooth stars are really pretty also. I am looking forward to watching this progress also.

  3. Kathy says:

    Both the stars and cheddar quilt are fabulous! I can’t wait to see the cheddar quilt when it’s bound and washed.

    Soak the quilt in your bathtub with warm water and biz bleach. Put a sheet underneath to lift the quilt out when finished otherwise the fabric/stitches will tear from the weight. I did it three times on my last vintage quilt and you wouldn’t believe how dirty that water gets. Washed in machine after.

  6. The only way to watch a movie is with handwork! Your quilting is exquisite.

  7. Really enjoying watching the progress you are making on the ‘cheddar’ quilt. So funny you watched ‘Marvellous’ – my son had the dvd for Christmas and is looking forward to seeing Neil Baldwin next month when he visits a church in Northampton for a showing of the film!
    It’s a small world…

    Cheddar – how wonderful! Your quilt is beautiful and I agree – binding is a task I enjoy too. Gives you time to appreciate all the work, close inspection of details you may of missed.
