Slow Stitching Sunday

Time to choose the next top for hand quilting! Here are a few contenders.

The one above was a FB Marketplace find last summer in AZ. It needs a bit of work. Love the top, not sure I want another needing repairs just yet. The next one I picked up in AZ also. I’d love to add another border to this one, if I can find enough vintage fabric in my stash. This is a smaller top. It’s high in my list.

This one is also high on the list. Blog reader Ila, sent this to me. She knows how I love orphans! The more I look at this, the more I fall in love with it.

It does need a few repairs as well. Some mouse had a nice lunch.

I think this is made entirely of feedsacks. Look at those seam allowances!

Amazingly, she made it work, because the points match quite well and the top lays nice and flat.

I’d like to big stitch this like I did this vintage hourglass top here. But those seams give me pause.

Such a hard decision! Have a great day!

    I am sure you will find one that you will like to quilt. They all are pretty but the second one is my favorite.

  3. I was going to suggest the same thing Donna said, about seeing if you could find some excess seam allowance to patch the mouse lunch. So many fun quilt tops to play with! Enjoy!

    They are all great quilts. Looking forward to your next hand quilting project.

    All of them are great options! On the “Mouse Lunch” quilt, maybe she paper-pieced it and didn’t trim the seam allowances. Any chance of finding a seam allowance large enough to patch the holes?
