Slow Stitching Sunday

Why is it that it took six months for me to finally finish hand quilting that last quilt, and yet as soon as it was done, I had to start something else?

Diane from O’Quilts gifted this patchwork piece to me. As soon as I saw it, I knew I wanted to handquilt it and put it on my doll bed. Thank you, Diane!

I basted it on my long arm and I am quilting it without hoop or frame. It was so lovely out one recent morning, that I sat in the sun on my doorstep and started the quilting.

I had the quilting all done and decided to add more. I’m loving the hanging diamonds.

Have a great day!

    I do not think I’ve ever seen that block before! What a darling quilt, and so glad the big stipple isn’t the actual finished quilting!

    Oh, whew! At first I thought the basting was the quilting!
    Anyway, what a sweet little top, and I love the hanging diamonds for the “real” quilting.
