Slow Stitching Sunday ~ Vintage Churn Dash

I’m slowly making progress on the hand quilting of this top. I only have this bit in the center to go.

You can see it better on the back.

I made a binding from vintage fabric and attached it by machine.

So now when I’m done quilting, I can move right to hand stitching the binding.

Have a great day!

  1. Gorgeous quilting! I am so happy that you rescued this gem. Funny, I always “start” quilting in the middle, I’m guessing you start on the edge because that is what longarmers do. It is beautiful!

    I always start in the middle and work my way out -l do you always go all the way around and finish in the middle? love antique quilts.

  3. So fun to see your progress, and the binding you’ve chosen is perfect!

    love watching your progress. Interesting, tho, you mentioned you just had a little to finish in the middle. Where do you start your quilting? I will often start my quilting in the middle. Have a fun slow stitching day!
