Even though I lost that hour of time this weekend as we turned our clocks ahead, I was able to fit in the final big stitches to finish my RSC 2014 Pickle Dish quilt. I usually name my quilts but this one just remains my pickle dish. I am very pleased with how the big stitching on this turned out. It is such a graphic quilt and the big stitching just emphasizes it. The backing on this quilt was a piece of fabric that my mom treasured for years. She grew up in Austria and lived thru WW2 and lived a very frugal life. It reminds me of a head scarf she used to wear. It is a bit bohemian in my book and so I thought it really was a great fit as the backing to my pickle dish quilt.
To finish it off I added a polka dot binding. Now to add those final stitches to hold the binding down. I always enjoy those final stitches. A time to reflect the journey of making this quilt. It definitely is a bit outside the norm for me. But, it was fun to play with the bright fabrics and the bold graphic design in this quilt. Hopefully, I can then turn my attention to my TATW project. It has been a bit neglected and needs some attention. Working on round 15, each round taking a bit longer! It is fun to see how each round changes the quilt. I am using fabrics from my stash that just never seem to make it out of the closet, so the combinations are down right crazy. Still, I am loving it more with each round. So I hope you will enjoy some slow stitches today and come join the other slow stitchers at Slow Stitching Sunday.
