Slow Stitching Sunday ~ Vintage Indigo

This is what I plan on working on today.

I used vintage feedsacks for the backing. This is what it looks like after basting on my longarm.

Yep, back to Baptist Fans again!

This time, I’m using a smaller stencil. I’m also adding a line of stitching in between each of the stencil lines. I had an old package of Mountain Mist Blue Ribbon batting that I’m using. 

Have a great day!

Linking up with Kathy’s Quilts

  3. Do you want another package of old Mountain Mist batting (I think I’ve had it for 15 years or so)? ๐Ÿ™‚ I like that one block with the gold stripe in it, like a little renegade.

    This looks really pretty.

  7. Nice quilting. Glad you found that hand quilting makes you happy, after all we can not piece
    forever. Someone has to finish them and I am sure whoever pieced this one is looking down and enjoying watching you quilt it.

  8. Totally delicious… I love baptist fans… I think I have to look for a project to hand quilt with this design! Thanks for linking up to Slow Sunday Stitching!
