Lovely Slow Sunday

This is the first time in over a month that I've been able to slow down and do some needle work on a Sunday. And I'm enjoying every minute of it. 

Today I am working on the last block to be appliquéd for the quilt "Words To Live By". 

I have completed appliqueing the corners and the surrounding blocks. 

Seeing how this a large block and there are lots of pieces to be attached, 

I'm doing it in quarters, so it's easier for me to handle and make sure my pieces don't come off of the background.

It feels so good to be appliquéing, and it's been a while since I've taken time to do some. 

Seeing how this is the last block to be appliquéd I really need to start thinking and getting serious about making all the half square triangles that will be in this quilt.
I would love for this to be completed and quilted by the end of the year. I believe I can do it.

  1. Great work! Wool felt is one of my favorite mediums.

  2. Yes--you can do it! I made all my HST's at a quilt retreat, so it was a little less painful--lol!


  3. Very nice! Excellent color sense!

  4. This will be really gorgeous, Kathleen! But, wow, what a lot of hsts! Totally worth it, though. Happy stitching!

  5. The last block! That's got to feel good. :) This is going to be so pretty all put together.

  6. Your blocks are beautiful! It must feel great to be on the last block. What a LOT of half-square triangles to be sewn. I'm glad you can finally devote some time today to hand stitching. It's always a pleasant time (at least for me).

  7. I say this all the time but I am in awe of your talent, such a pleasure to see what you are working on.

  8. These blocks are so beautiful!!! Your work is wonderful!!

  9. Beautiful blocks! Glad you got in some slow stitching time. I don't envy your triangle making job. That's a lot of little, bitty pieces. But it's going to be gorgeous, so it's all worth it.
