Slow Stitching Sunday

Mr. Wonderful left early this morning on a business trip to China. After church, I plan to spend my day slow stitching.

First up will be the binding for my Almost Amish quilt. I requilted it yesterday.

Then I hope to start hand quilting my vintage hourglass quilt. First though, I need to decide how to quilt it.

I could go with small Baptist fans…

Or the big ones that I love so well.

Or I could do something totally different. But I don’t want to think too hard…

Have a great day!

I am a wife, mom of four amazing kids, and a librarian. I have been making traditional quilts for ages but have ventured into art qulting in the last several years. I also love to knit socks and mittens and dye my own fabric. I am thankful to God my Father and Creator for the gift of creativity!

    I still have some slivers of hand soap, from before we went to the pump for that, that I use to mark my stencils on dark fabrics. Not all body bars work, though, some are too soft and do not leave a nice sliver of soap for marking. Love your quilts, looking forward to what you decide.

    Can’t wait to see which one you decided to go with, Katy! One seems more to scale to me. ~smile~ Roseanne

    Hi! Katy! Hope you are having a peaceful and enjoyable day. When you use stencils to guide your stitching what marker tool do you use? I struggle to find anything that marks effectively without the risk of the fabric being stained.
