It’s three weeks since I last showed you my coming home quilt, a lot has happened in those three weeks so I haven’t got much done, but I have made progress!
Three weeks ago I was trying to choose colours for the birds in each corner…
Well after much playing around, I realised that the colours that worked depended on the colous of the nearby houses, not surprising really! So, I have a different coloured bird in each corner, a blue one, a purple, a peach and a taupe one. I’ve cut them all out, keeping the pieces safe in an organza bag for the time being.
I started hand-stitching the first corner, I’ve just a few more leaves and then a bias-binding vine to stitch on. Hopefully now I’ve made my decisions I should be able to crack on with it.
Hand Quilt Along Links
This Hand Quilt Along is an opportunity for hand quilters and piecers to share and motivate one another. We post every three weeks, to show our progress and encourage one another. If you have a hand quilting project and would like to join our group contact Kathy at the link below.
I’ll also be linking up with Kathy’s Quilts for Slow Stitching Sunday, please follow the links for lots of hand-stitched inspiration.
