Slow Stitching

I basted my little quilt on Friday.

I wanted to use this feed sack for the back, but it had obvious damage.

So I cut out the damaged part and sewed it back together.

I love the way the quilting looks on it!

I used a silver marking pencil to mark the Baptist Fans. I’m using smaller fans this time. But I am adding an additional arc between each of the marked arcs.

I should be able to get much of the quilting done while traveling.

Have a great day!

    I would love to know where you find all your feedsacks. I never see any in my travels. Your little quilt looks great!

  3. Another cute little quilt. I’ve never come across feed sacks; how fun that you have them and use them this way!

  4. Old feed sacks have such think threads in their weave, almost canvas like. Is this harder to hand quilt?
