Leo’s Mane Sew Along

Sunday Stitching

I’m continuing to work on putting white filler pieces around the bottom section of La Passacaglia. It’s a slow process, and not too terribly exciting, although I do really like the way the white is making  the colours of the stars shine out. I think you’ll have to biggie size the picture though, in order to see it. Right now looking at the picture, all I’m seeing is white. But that might be because of the contrast with the floor. 
Today I’m hoping to get the white sewn to the dark grey and the red star points. There’s a rosette that has to be sewn into place in that large gap between the red and the burgundy star. Once that is done, I can add in more of the white, and that will finish the fillers on this half of the quilt. I’m not exactly sure just how much of this I’ll get done today. It’s our family get together for decorating the house and the Christmas tree today, along with dinner and munchies. But I might be able to get some done before they get here. The roasts are thawing out, and just need to be put into the oven. And there will be hands other than mine to do the potato and vegetable preparations. So  I should be able to get a couple of hours that I can dedicate to this. And I can also stitch while visiting. I’m not going to bother with writing out a stash report this week, since there hasn’t been any change since the last one. I’m linking up to Kathy’s Slow Sunday Stitching and then it will be stitching time.


  1. Your progress is amazing!
    Enjoy your day of stitching and visiting!

  2. I think you La Passacaglia quilt is fascinating...so much eye candy. Love the idea of having a family decorating day...I can't imagine my sons thinking that would be fun but they might come for the food.

  3. I have this book and I nearly just pulled it out, but then I came to my senses. I will just admire yours! You are doing a great job, and I love all your colours. :D

  4. Beautiful colors and a lot of Slow Sunday Stitching.

  5. Amazing quilt!! You are very talented to make everything fit so nicely. If I were to make that, it wouldn't let that flat on the floor lol. Are you keeping track of how many pieces you have sewn so far? Just asking. Beautiful, beautiful work. ;^)

I love reading all your comments, and am grateful for each one. I try very hard to answer them all, but lately I haven’t quite been able to answer all of them.
