Although I may not have lots of stitching time in December, I do have some slow stitching projects to turn to keep my hands occupied and sanity intact!
It's been over a year since my Dear Husband asked me to make him a Log Cabin quilt. He had never asked for a quilt before, so of course I had to make it for him! He chose the color scheme and block size; I laid everything out in the barn-raising pattern and found a backing fabric with log cabins. My LAQ did a fantastic job adding pine cones, pine boughs, acorns and oak leaves. Now I just need to stitch down the binding. It may take all winter, as the quilt wound up being 90" x 90"!
When I need break from hand stitching the binding, I can work on making Quilty 365 circles.
These two are from the last couple of days; prepped and ready to stitch. Hmm...it looks like I might need to tweak the blue one a little!
Sometimes I pick fabric for the color & pattern, sometimes for the subject matter.
Some circles are cut from favorite, hoarded fabrics. And yup, I decided to vary my background color just a little. <g>
Have I mentioned I love toile fabrics? I expect there will be lots of toile in my final quilt.
I didn't have an turkey fabrics in my stash, but I found this great Riley Blake print that seemed appropriate for Thanksgiving's block!
And now I'm off to my comfy chair for some hand stitching. When my wrist needs a break, I'll be perusing all the other projects being lovingly hand-stitched at the Slow Sunday Stitching link-up.
