Slow Stitching Sunday

 I'm still hand quilting my Grandma's Sewing Room quilt. I hand quilted in the ditch around the spools and jars. Now I'm using perle #8 and a laced running stitch all over in kind of a free motion hand quilting  to look like a loose thread. I thought you would be better able to tell from the picture that I only have 2 and a half rows left.  I didn't have the patience to take more pictures outside today. It's cold and windy.
 Maybe I will be finished with the loose thread (aka laced running stitch, hand quilting) by next week if I work on it a little each night after work this week.  I want to get done with it because I have other stitching I want to do - crazy quilting.
This is the back of the quilt and you can kind of see where the running stitches are.  I like how this looks and feels.

To see what others are slow stitching this week visit Kathy's Quilts Slow Stitching Sunday.

I love the "loose thread" stitching. Your quilt is really something special.

Ooh! This is exciting! All of that hand-stitching must have taken forever, but the look of it is worth it, I'm sure.
