Slow Stitching Sunday

She's off the frame for good this time!  Finally! WooHoo...I'm kicking up my heels  hillbilly style.  Me doing the Happy Hillbilly Hoedown isn't nearly as pretty as the quilt, but I'm sure both would make you smile!   The 36 yo-yo's have been glue basted and ready are for hand stitching.  As soon as I machine stitch  the binding to the front of the quilt I'll start the hand stitching marathon.  
Stitching the binding to a quilt is the only time I sit and watch TV all day while sewing.  Since this is a fairly large quilt, about 88 x 100, it's going to take a few hours.  With the yo-yo's maybe 2 days!  
I can't wait to show you the entire quilt, She's a cutie!

I'm linking up today with Kathy@KathyQuilts for Slow Stitching Sunday.  These gals do some amazing hand piecing and quilting.  Great inspiration.  I joined Kathy's linky hoping that it would keep me inspired to get my handwork UFO's finished.  Not only has it helped(so far) to keep me on track but it's also rekindle my interest in learning to hand quilt.

  4. I can't wait to see the end product! It is looking beautiful so far. Nothing like a bit of encouragement from others who love stitching to keep you motivated is there? I am just back from a break at Slow Stitching Sundays and I had forgotten how wonderful everyone is! Thanks for sharing. Enjoy your stitching.

  5. She's a pretty for sure! :) It IS nice to have this link party for projects that take forever and a day or just for occasional ones that are by hand :)

    I like it because when I need to get up and stretch or put the stitching down for awhile to mix some meatballs , lol...like just now...then I can check in to see what the others are up to before I get back to whatever I am stitching :)

  19. So you do all the quilting first, and then hand stitch the yo yos? I always wondered how one would maneuver around 3 D embellishments like that during quilting. Your quilt is looking lovely!
