Slow Sunday Stitching....

Well, not so much stitching as preparing for stitching. I put My Tweets up on the wall to get an idea of the colour balance, and what I should use for the tails in the next block.
I noticed that I have a lot of pink tails and purple tails, and also a couple done in shades of yellows and oranges. So, what I’ve chosen for the next one is shades of reds, with just a touch of blue and purple added in.

This is blocks number 10. I spent most of the afternoon cutting pieces and prepping them using the liquid starch and non meltable mylar method. There’s enough here now, that I can get a start on the stitching. I’ve found that I like doing the birds first, before adding in the flowers.
I’m going to link this up to Kathy’s Slow Sunday Stitching. After that, it just might be time to tidy up from all the cutting I’ve done, have something to eat, and then actually do some stitching.


  1. The blocks are looking nice. I finished the binding on a quilt, earlier today, but, haven't posted it yet.

  2. Oh, your blocks are gorgeous! Are all of your fabrics batiks? It is going to be one beautiful quilt.

  3. These are so beautiful! It's even more amazing to see all the blocks together like that. The purple and reds will make a good addition! :)

  4. Good choices and good trick to follow - aren't design walls so helpful? Happy Thanksgiving.

  5. Your tweets are just wonderful. What a lot of intricate 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.
