15 Minutes

I will be joining KATHY and KATE with some slow stitching today.  I have used the 15 minutes a day to tackle my hand stitching.  My temperature hexies are done each day, but I have some other projects that are getting attention as well.

This Civil War Sampler has been sitting for a long time.  I entered it in a local quilt show with the purpose of encouraging me to get it hand quilted and finished.  Just stitch in the ditch and a little bit in each block - these are tiny blocks with lots of heavy seams - this shouldn't take me long to quilt.

I have two large quilts for this show, too.  They need their temporary hanging sleeve attached, so more hand stitching to be done.  I have some company stopping thru out the day, so a hand project is easy to put down and then get back to today.

Sewingly Yours,


  1. What a great quilt! Great motivator to be entered into a show, good luck and hope you win a ribbon!

  2. Civil War, I like the blocks that are plain fabric to show off the others so well, lovely colours all the way through.

  3. Beautiful projects. Good luck in the show.

  4. Great ideas for your 15 minutes. Should be a good day.

  5. Hand quilting on a cold day sounds perfect. Enjoy your stitching time.

  6. What a lovely project to hand quilt... enjoy!
