Finishing old projects. Slow stitching time.

Back in the Summer of 2010 I walked into The Cloth Shop to find Maria, one of the owners working on a new design.

She had one sunflower block made and I signed up knowing that the quilt was going to look like a garden of flowers.

I hand appliquéd all my flowers rather than fusing them as the block was designed, as I broke a bone in my foot shortly after getting the first block.

Here is the top from the shop.

Ethel hangs hers in her kitchen.

I got my top to the flimsy stage and it has sat, pinned with a few stitches quilted.

I've finally picked it up and have been working on it for about a week.

I'm loving that I did traditional appliqué.

I'm adding a bit more quilting to each of the flowers and then onto my backgrounds and borders...slow stitching time!

It is great to get to the process of finishing a quilt that has been started. It is well worth finishing. Regards, Nessie
