Slow Stitching Sunday

I’m getting to the end of this project! I didn’t have vintage stash with me in Arizona so as I came across pieces that needed replacing, I just skipped quilting them and moved on. Pieces like this.

I think I had eight pieces that needed replacing. Instead of taking the worn pieces out, I appliqued “new” vintage pieces over top.

These aren’t perfect matches, but they blend. The appliqué is now done and I need to go back and quilt these spots.

I even got the binding sewn on!

Time for some serious hand sewing and then a bath for this quilt.

Have a great day!

  1. You have done great work. The applique-over technique has worked for me in the past, too.

  2. So many fun fabrics in that quilt – I love the madder pinks!
