I went to the Waterloo County Quilters' Exhibit on Friday, which was a calculated risk, and totally worth it! It was a lot of walking and standing but manageable for a short time. Yesterday's blog post showed a few quilts, but today I want to show the Slow Stitchers the quilt I won in the mini quilt raffle. This little gem was made by Judy Pearce and the squares finish at 1/2"! The green hand stitching is done with varigated thread using stem stitches and lazy daisy stitches. It's a tiny gem that is now living at my house :)
|Life is Beautiful Block #18|
The positive side of having body pain, is that while being force to slow down, I've been doing a lot of hand stitching. Another block is completed for my Life is Beautiful project.
Then I picked up an old hand quilting project. It's a 12" block that has been waiting to be finished for a couple of years. Ahh... hand stitching is just what the Dr. ordered!
