The Roman Stripe postage stamp quilt (inspired by a vintage quilt on ebay) is in the hoop now.
It's one of the hand work projects I took camping with me last week since the camper has a/c and my house doesn't. Turns out we actually had to turn on the heat in the camper a couple of nights which is unusual for August in Iowa. Anyway, in between games of UNO, Quiddler, Scrabble, treasure hunts, hikes, water balloon fights, campfires and some jewelry making at the family reunion camp out I managed to get some hand quilting done while just sitting around chatting and a little some nights before bed.
I'm using yellow and navy perle #8 to do some big stitching - yellow in one direction and navy in the other. You can hardly see the yellow in the picture but it's there. I'll do some stitching in red in the sashing cornerstones after I'm finished with all the other hand quilting.
And today, after I process some of the latest harvest - tomatoes, green beans and broccoli (and maybe start a batch of sauerkraut fermenting from a bunch of LARGE cabbages) - I'll sit down and start hand quilting again because it's another perfect day in this neighborhood - low humidity and cooler than a normal August day in Iowa.
