Slow Stitching Sunday

I’m in great need of some slow stitching today! I am bushed! I’m taking some rest time before cleaning up the detritus from the weekend sale.

I shared this vintage kit that I purchased a while back. My thought was to hand piece it. I discovered that the pieces were not accurately cut. Ugh.

You can see what a hot mess this point turned out to be! So, I’ve been searching for a solution and came upon this.

The stamp adheres to an acrylic block.

I was smart enough to try it on a scrap first! Wow!

I purposely bought a smaller stamp, even though I will have a lot of trimming to do. I’m perfectly happy with this ending up a smaller quilt.

I purchased a stamp pad with white ink as well to use on the darker fabrics.

This will be a great travel project. Though today, I’m only traveling as far as my couch.

Have a great day!

    I love using stamps for my hand piecing! I’m glad you put the name of this company. I have bought mine from Cindy Blackberg, they are so precise. Hugs,

  3. I love Kate! I have known her for at least 15 years and her stamps work great for hand piecing. I miss seeing her at the Quilt Shows. Enjoy the process – it is great! Been around a long time. Most of mine are when she was using the rubber stamp process! Love the colorful fabrics for this pattern!

  4. That is really clever, and a great solution. I hope your sale went well. Rest up!
