OMG and SSS!


My One Monthly Goal for November has been finished for a couple weeks. I hand quilted Palmateer Point with a clamshell design. It went pretty fast! 

After reading this post at Completely Cauchy (warning--some of her posts are not for the faint of heart!), I'm embracing my quilt stitches and will not call them big stitches or utility stitches--they are what they are.  The gold binding was just for fun. And since I finished my goal so early, I was able to get one new project squeezed in...

...a cute table runner from Cotton Tales called Autumn Gatherings. I picked up the kit at our guild "garage sale" this summer and have had it on my cutting table in hopes of getting it done for this fall. I'm going to go ahead and get it quilted so it's ready for next year---lol! 

Today I'm chilling out in front of the television and doing some Slow Sunday Stitching: basting hexies. I'm totally wrapped up in the Weeds marathon on Showtime and haven't accomplished a thing all weekend. Good thing today is the last day!

  7. The Autumn wall hanging is so colorful. It just feels like fall should. I'm glad you found time to stitch it up and will finish it for next year. I didn't get my Halloween cross stitch done in time this year but I'm still working on it when I can so it will be ready for next year.

  11. Love the colors you chose for Palmateer Point. I don't think of the label "big stitching" as a negative or as a comparison to other hand quilting. It seems to fit the style or intent of certain projects and the weight of the thread. I would think anyone looking at a quilt with that type of stitching would understand that. But then again, maybe not. Oh, well. The clam shell pattern looks great on your finished quilt!

  13. Love the clamshell quilting!
    One time I was quilting and my friend says, "oh nice big stitch!" which was fine, but I wasn't doing the big stitch!
