Stitching here and there...

I promise I have been sewing -- I have been bad at documenting and sharing!

I finished my Stash Bee block for Sara:


I think I got the background for my March wall hanging done about two or three weeks ago (oye!) and I spent Sunday evening watching Bar Rescue and The Walking Dead while tracing, ironing, cutting, and ironing some more. Now all of the parts are in place and I am ready to satin stitch until my eyeballs fall out.


The background is WILD and I LOVE IT. Every other square is a large scale teal and green floral print on white with gold foil accents. It says "hello, spring!" to me. I'm planning to do all of the outlining for this one in black to help it to stand out from the background. I'll probably do all of the quilting in white for this one.

Linking up in the usual places --  Linky TuesdayA Quilting Life for Scraps Monday on Tuesday, and WIP Wednesday!

Don't forget that NEXT MONDAY is the first tutorial for the Quilter's Choice QAL row quilt! You can still vote here for your block choice!!

  11. The teal is a great substitute for the typical green everyone associates with spring. It has a fun and whimsical look. Enjoy all the stitching.
