By Hand


I've finished up 6 of the 7 days of the week and hope to finish the last tonight.  I'm somehow going to use them in my Tea Towel Challenge quilt. 


I've finished up 6 more butterflies for the quilt I'm making like the one I inherited from grandma.  I need to count how many more I need. I'll prep some more today to applique and stitch during the week after work. 

And if I get bored I can always work on embellishing some of the seams where blocks join on my Crazy Cravings lap quilt. 

And, also today I hope to pin baste a Double Wedding Ring quilt I'm making for my granddaughter's hope chest. I'm going to try my hand at some old fashioned quilting.  Maybe you will see something on that next Sunday.

Love those candy "sprinkles" you hand stitched on your crazy quilt... every detail shot you share is yummy!

Those butterflies going in the same direction remind me of another traditional quilt pattern. It is all Sunbonnet Sues and they are turned in the same direction, except one. The name of the quilt was "It's Okay To Be Different." I really love the vintage look of your quilt.

Oh, those lavender and yellow butterflies are so beautiful! They are all great, but those two really catch my eye. Great stitches as always.
