Here we are again, another Slow Stitching Sunday. I have started to quilt the blocks that surround the center medallion block that I finished earlier this week.
I have two completed and today I will be working on the oakleaf and acorn block. I made this block because it reminds me of the wonderful oak trees that we enjoy in our yard here in Arkansas.
I thought I would include pics of the other two blocks that are completed. I feel I am making more progress now working on these smaller blocks, but they are still a lot of work. I am quilting these very traditionally.
All of the applique pieces are outlined with quilting stitches. The background is a grid done on the bias that runs thru the sashing and border. I will also add quilting to some of the larger applique blocks if the pieces are larger, for example the flower and vase in the photo to the right. I hope you find time to put in some stitches today!
