Slow Sunday Stitching
I’ve finished Friendship Chain, the top that is. It’s not quilted yet. I still have customer quilts to get done on the long arm before Christmas before I can load one of my own. In the meantime, I’m working on another hand piecing project. Last August I sewed up this Mariner’s Compass. I wanted to do more with this, as the finished compass here is only 16 inches. Not really big enough to do anything with it, besides a pillow, and I don’t need any more of those. So I played around in Electric Quilt 7 and come up with a design that I like. I’ve shared it before. The colours aren’t the same as what I’m using, and the background fabrics are a bit out of scale, but the layout idea is there. I’ve gotten one of the curved geese arcs almost finished. The pieces are quite small, so they stitch together very quickly. I’m using English Paper Piecing to do these. The arcs will be reverse appliquéd into background triangles. I’ll be linking up to Kathy’s Slow Sunday Stitching.
