Slow 'Stitching' Sunday
Technically, yesterday wasn't a 'Slow Stitching Sunday'. I started an applique block a few weeks ago and showed a quilt that you can see here. I made it years ago. I thought I'd like to make another similar to that one. I used the back-basting method for it. It started with drawing the design on the back, back-basting it, then stitched with the turned-under method. As I was stitching the other day, I became more and more frustrated because it was so much work and it didn't look as good as I had hope. So...yesterday, it was Slow UNstitching Sunday. Here are before and after photos:
I'm not giving up on doing the applique blocks/quilt. I just plan to do it using fusible applique. Linking up with Slow Stitching Sunday at Kathy's Quilts. Pop over and take a look at what others worked on Sunday.
