I am making some good progress on my "Accidental Quilt".
I have finished quilting all the lines in the triangle blocks and am working my way around the outside of the quilt. Soon it will be binding time and I have picked out the perfect fabric! I am trying not to rush and enjoy the process... I remind myself that the anticipation is the best part! I might actually finish the hand quilting today depending on how much stitching time I get! So exciting!
I basted a scrap piece of fabric around the outside of the quilt to give me more fabric to put in the hoop (a great suggestion from Slow Sunday Stitching comments) and it is really helping me to get better stitches. I took a photo of my threads so I can remember what I used on this quilt. I like this thread and bought it on sale at Joann's in the US. Do you have the same bad habit as I do of sticking pins into the top of the spool?
Hope you are able to enjoy some relaxing hand stitching today... treat yourself!
We would love to see what you are hand stitching this week. You can share your project below linking to your blogpost or Flickr page.
