Slow Stitching Sunday ~ Casket Patches

I decided not to bring the vintage quilt top for hand quilting after all. And here is the reason:

I realized It would be rare when I didn’t have a dog on my lap so it was unlikely that I would get much done.

But of course, now that I’m here, I do want a hand project, just not one quite that big. And then I remembered these.

I brought them intending to stitch them by machine. I cut these out ages ago with this template.

I’m very sorry but I have no idea where I got this. 

I cut all of these out of Denise Schmidt prints. 


If I find I’m not getting enough hand stitching time in, I can always go back to my machine stitching plan.

Have a great day!
