Slow Stitching ~ Brinton Hall

It has been a while since a Brinton Hall update. That’s because there hadn’t been any progress until this weekend. I am finally adding the red borders. I am appliqué in the hexies to it and will trim after.

This gives an idea of where I am now. The borders are glue basted and I have just begun stitching them on.

Sorry for the horrible picture. I hope to get this done before we leave for Arizona later this week. It USA bit too unwieldy for stitching on the plane. So I will need to find a travel project to take. 

We went to alocal antique fest yesterday with Daughter #1 and Little E. He was such a good boy!


I saw a number of quilts, but these two caught my eye. 

That was has been loved nearly to death! I hope mine look like this one day!


This one had the most magnificent stitching! 

Have a glorious day!

    That red border really off-sets those beautiful blocks and hexies.
