Hello and welcome to the weekly hand stitching party! We invite you to enjoy a refreshing drink and take out your project and put a few stitches in.
This is exactly what I love to do on a hot summer day... sit in the shade with a strawberry drink, and do some hand quilting, while visiting with a friend. It is even more special this year as we have been socially isolated for so long due to covid restrictions, and now at long last, we are able to have outdoor visits with friends.
|4 more quilted blocks!|
I have been hand quilting some 8" Life Is Beautiful blocks lately as it's the perfect summer take along project. These are the most recently finished blocks on the design wall.
|39 Life is Beautiful blocks waiting!|
Here is the stack of 39 blocks in storage. Yes, they patiently wait in an unused refrigerator. If I add this pile to the above 4 quilted blocks, that is a total of 43 blocks, which means I am 20 blocks away from starting to assemble the quilt!
What are you hand stitching today? We hope you will link up your blog post below and share your project with us!

I love when the Life is Beautiful blocks get their showing! Neat repurposing of an old fridge. Enjoy these summer days and a strawberry drink sounds delicious.
