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.

    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.

  2. 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…

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

    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.

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

    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.

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