Slow Sunday

This morning I sewed a large, really large backing for my double four patch top.  After struggling to get this finished I proceeded to load on my long arm.  Low and behold it's too big!!!  I'll have to beg on of my friends to use their long arm.  They have larger tables.

I slow stitched a few applique blocks and then later sewed some neutral strings.  Nine and it didn't tame the small bag I was trying to use up.

Here are the Dear Jane blocks.

And the nine string blocks.

  1. I really like the way your Dear Jane blocks are looking!

  2. Those little DJ blocks have some tricky applique shapes. I don't know that I will ever tackle them. I I ever get around to making any of the blocks I will have to stick with pieced. : )
    Love the neutral strings--they really don't use up much, though, do they.

  3. Beautiful blues and someday I will attempt a string quilt

  4. Love the low volume string blocks. I have been wanting to make a low volume quilt and am collecting low volume scraps.


Gribbit - I'd love to hear from you.
