Slow Stitching

I'm linking up today with Kathy's@Katthy'squilts for Slow Stitching Sunday.  I've shown these quilt blocks many times over the last 4 years because I'm 
Slooooooooow
when it come to handwork.  You can find links to the pattern over at Erins Blog.
I work on it here and there and not always on Sunday.  This week there's been  about 4 hours or so in the evenings while watching TV. 


 This is one of my favorite blocks, its those daisies.  Miss Birdie looks as if she really like them also.


 One of the reasons(excuses) it's taking so long is I need new glasses.  So I've been using this for all my handwork.


Since this last block is almost complete I've been thinking about how to tackle  
 the center block and borders.  I'm still looking for the right fabric for the vase/urn in the center block.  I may end up altering the pattern and adding applique to a vase made from a solid fabric.  The applique borders may be left off also, at the rate I'm going that could take another 2 yrs.


 I found this picture(below) somewhere awhile back and forgot to add the info on who, what, when, and where.  Anyway...I love the sashing idea and thought it might be an option for my version of the My Tweets quilt.  It too would be a lot of applique....only time will tell how this will end.


Thanks for stopping by my little spot in Podunk!

  3. Your My Tweets block is lovely. I have one of those quilts on the go, as well. Except for the fact that it hasn't been going anywhere, for a while. ;-)

  4. I love those daisys. Yes, new glasses and good lighting helps. I also do my handwork in front of the TV. Makes me feel less like a couch potato! :) www.quiltartbymegan.com

  7. Oh, I remember the applique design you are working on. I did not make any of the blocks but it was so very tempting.

  8. our work is just gorgeous. I know how much time and patience goes into applique. I am still plodding quietly away with Mimi's bloomers. I think I may have just done the hardest block, but don't quote me on that!
    I agree with you, a plain vase will show off the flowers well.

  17. Hey! I'm jealous that you're working on this. I've been wanting to do her "My Tweets" for the longest time. I still have a few more olllllld BOM to clear our before I can start it. Tour work looks great. And I need to invest in a spyglass like that. And new glasses also!
