I finished the patriotic chevron quilt that I have been working on the last week or two and have it sandwiched and pin basted ready for some machine quilting. Then I wondered about having something to do in the evenings as I unwind from the day. Oh yes, that back burner TATW! I have about a dozen more squares to add to finish row 17. So, I cut up enough 2 inch squares for four more rows.
Last year, I won some George Washington fabric from Julierose. I thought it would be neat to do a tribute quilt to our first president. I could incorporate an appliqued eagle block that I have been wanting to do for close to a year. This quilt has been rolling around in my head for at least six months. I have been struggling with how I will put them all together in one quilt. Then I saw a post on FB that Bonnie Hunter shared with a multi-sized block layout. That was it! That was the answer to my prayers. I just need to start the process of making the parts. Part of my plan was to incorporate some embroidered blocks. So between hand piecing and embroidery I have plenty of slow stitching to enjoy today. I am linking up with Kathy today who has a great post about relaxing slow stitches. I am so glad my stress over how to approach my Tribute to George quilt is over, and now the relaxing process of stitching can begin!
