It's Sunday, I'm slow

But nonetheless I am making good progress and the end of this quilt, while not exactly imminent, is definitely within sight.  I am working my way around the outer edges now, and know from experience that the closer I get to the finish, the more hours I will put in.  I can't go faster, so I have to do more; sort of impatient patient stitching!


After a bit of a break I am linking up with Kathy today for Slow Sunday Stitching.

Love your bright colors! What a great project for January, well if you are in a cold climate like I am.

I know what you mean about being willing to put in more work when the end is in sight. I love seeing your progress and the bright colors are delightful on this winter day for me.

Within sight is a good stage to get to. Keep on working, you will get there soon!

I understand the need to get closer and closer to the finish. Not to race, but more to see the product. I love that moment when I shake the completed quilt out and see it completed for the first time. In fact, I do that after every step along the way. I am a whole picture kind of gal, so I take time to stop and appreciate the whole project no matter what state it's in. I can't wait to see that for this one. Quilty 365 was a great idea for you!

I love the striped circles appliquéd to different solid colored squares.

Cathy said...

Oh, I absolutely love this one with the color names stamped on it...and the stripes...and the color combo...and the hand stitching...and the circles...

Those striped circles are very pretty.

Lovely, lovely. I'd forgotten the text you stenciled on it. It adds so much character.

I may have said before that I love this quilt to bits!! The striped fabrics just glow on the solid backgrounds.

Very pretty! It looks so cuddly already, I can see why you'd get impatient for the end!
