Slow Stitching Sunday

We took a quick trip home last weekend to visit my parents. All that time in the car was just the jumpstart I needed to get back to working on my Brinton Hall quilt. This is where it is at right now.


Two corners done! And a third is started!


Looks like I need to prepare a few more hexies today. I have another hand sewing project that needs to get done today, the binding on the double 4patch quilt is just waiting for me.that needs to be done this week so I can gift it.


The weather here is rather frightful, so it will be nice to spend the day sewing after church.

Linking up with Kathy’s Quilts, Quilting is More Fun Than Housework

    Like the colors you have chosen for your hexies. Would have liked to see the whole 9 patch though. Hope your weather improves. We are just now getting our belated winter..

    Really like the hexies quilt. How do you put a backing on? I’m working on hexie baby quilt and I do not know how to do the backing and binding. Any suggestions would be helpful. Diane
