A Slow Sunday


Today has been a very slow day, I guess it's because of the it is hot out and all I want to do it is veg inside. I have two things I have to work on while sitting in the cool house.
I'm getting right along on quilting my daughters quilt.



 
I notice that one of the fabrics show light in the pictures, but not in person.



When I get tired of quilting I can sewing on my other daughters quilt, called Candy Wrapper.
Do you notice something odd about one of the rows?



Yes I did it again, sewn it together wrong. I don't know how I manage to get it backwards.
I had thought after the first time I had been more watchful of how it was arranged.
Oh well what could be slower than ripping stitches out.






Such a fun pattern.

Piecing by hand is very relaxing.

  1. It's awful having to rip seams. The fabrics you use for the candy wrappers are gorgeous. What a beautiful quilt!

  3. Both of your quilts are very nice. I like the candy wrapper. I have never seen that design before. You are right - hand sewing is very relaxing. I like it because I can get more exact results than with the machine.

  5. Your quilts are so pretty and so different in style, which I'm assuming that shows your daughters different styles. I have 3 daughters and their choice in quilts would be in 3 totally different styles. I've always loved the candy wrapper pattern,
