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

    Love this one, Katy! And you know I love Baptist fan quilting….glad you are enjoying the hand quilting…. I am a hand quilter, and even though it reduces the number of completed projects I have, I am going to keep at it as long as my hands and wrists let me!!

  3. 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!

  4. 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. 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.
