Slow Stitching Sunday

I am slow stitching today.  I'm not hand quilting, but, I am hand stitching the binding down on this quilt.

This is the front of the quilt.

This quilt will be going to Illinois tornado victims, thru Quilts of Compassion.

I'm linking up at Kathy's Quilts.  Check out her post today, and, go read the great story about finding the 'owner' of a thrift shop quilt.  Great story!

  7. In your post of May 12, 2015 you posted a quilt by Susan Berger called Crazy Colors. Did she use a pattern or was it her own unique design? It is so striking, I would like to try it.
    I was born in Alexis, Illinois but retired to Galveston Island, Texas...so it would appear that we exchanged states!
    Thank you for all of your work of your inspiring blog!

  9. Thank you so much for sharing that wonderful story! Yep, just goes to show we need to mark our quilts/lovingly sewn items. Quilters have big hearts; and those aren't just appliqued on!
