Slow Stitching Sunday

This past week I have been busy with non-quilting activities, but I still managed to find the time to work away on the last corner block in the border of Sue Garman’s “Friends of Baltimore”.  And, as usual, I started with the vase.  This just might be my favourite vase!

Slowly, I filled the vase….first with some stems and leaves.   You can see that some of the leaves and flowers cover the seam line and flow from the block onto the border.

So now I have prepped as far as I can.  I am going to stitch everything…well, maybe not everything!… in place this afternoon at my Sunday Afternoon Applique Group.  Once all of the stitching is done,  I will attach this border to the rest of the quilt, and then fill in the missing pieces.  I am linking up to Slow Stitching Sunday.  Check it out and see what some fine quilters are up to today!

My hexies are taking on a life of their own.  I am not exactly sure where this quilt is heading.  I am just making it up as I go!  Have you tried Inklingo yet?  All of these hexies were made using Inklingo.  Inklingo is fast, efficient, super-simple and extremely addictive!  Betcha can’t make just one!!

And, finally, a couple of people asked me if I would show the back of my hexie stitching once it has been pressed.  It’s all about  spiralling the seams!

Til next time….

  1. Hi Kerry, Your quilt is beautiful and you are an inspiration to me to keep on. I’m thinking of joining an applique bee also. You gave me a good idea. Thanks for sharing with us.

  2. Incredible! Your handiwork is absolutely gorgeous, beautiful, incredible. My jealousy blossoms. hahha. I so look forward to seeing this in its final stages; I’m learning so much.

  3. Beautiful selection of fabrics and I too love the vase! Especially the fabric. If I had not already invested a fortune in EPP I might consider the Inklingo (LOL). Beautiful work.

  4. Your applique work just takes my breath away. You are so talented! Love your hexies – you know I’m addicted to them! I haven’t tried Inkglo – I really am hooked on EPP but may give Inkglo a try one day soon!

  5. I always love seeing what you are working on. Thanks so much for sharing your process rather than just the amazing finishes — I especially appreciate things like the photo of the hexie backsides showing how you handled the seam allowance bulk. That’s when a photo speaks a thousand words!
