Today I am linking up with Slow Sunday Stitching over at Kathy’s Quilts. There are lovely hand stitching projects there every week and it’s nice to know I have company in the slow stitching department.
I’m still plugging away at hand quilting my Canada quilt, picking up momentum as it gets closer to completion. There’s nothing like seeing the end in sight to motivate me! I think the quilting is about 3/4 done, and all the bits for which choosing a quilting motif was challenging are finished.
These are not the true colours. They are really much brighter, but adding light or using the camera’s flash washes out the quilting. It’s just not a good time of day to take pictures of quilting details!
Looking at this now, I wish I had left some unquilted space behind the letters. The letters seem to have lost definition. I may go back and redo this, or I may not. I have already rethought, unpicked and redone a few other parts of the quilt and I’m not sure I have enough enthusiasm left to do that again! Perhaps once I’ve finished everything I can reconsider and decide if this little bit bothers me enough to redo.
