Slow Sunday Stitching

Not much time for hand sewing this week so I couldn't wait for Sunday to arrive. I plan to quilt until my hands are sore or my fingers are bleeding, whichever comes first! 
I am continuing to quilt my Journey of a Quilter, and am enjoying every stitch. I think the quilting is about 1/4 finished at this point.


These are my favorite quilting needles at the moment - the John James "Big Eye" Size 10. I can always thread this needle, even after quilting for an hour or two late at night!

What are you hand stitching today? Link up your blog post below and share your progress.

    Thanks for the tip on the needles. I need all the tips I can get. I've seen those needles recommended elsewhere by someone who also does beautiful work.

  9. Don't bleed on your quilt! That happened to me a couple weeks ago. Fortunately, it wasn't much and is hardly noticeable. I'll have to remember to treat it before washing. Your quilt is beautiful! Did you design it? I've never seen one like it before. Happy stitching!

  11. I've done a few hours of hand quilting this week, for the first time in months. Nothing bleeding yet, but I'm still going. : )
    I guess I have big fingers, because I like a bigger quilting needle--but a larger eye would be nice, too.
    Doesn't it feel good to have made so much progress on this quilt?

  13. I like the John James needles also. The local shops do not carry them. I had to order online last time. I hate paying the postage rates when it is such a small and lightweight item.
