Slow Stitching this Week

 I've continued to work on my Humble Quilts QAL project each evening this week.  I got the border pieces sewn on, and the layers together for quilting.  I had enough of the blue with variegated brown dots for the border, and I like it, so went with that, a little different from what Lori shows on her quilt.


So, for the last several evenings, I've been stitching along, with my sort of primitive, definitely self-taught, quilting!  Enjoying every stitch!

A bit more quilting in the little four patches, and then some binding,
and this one will be finished!

Hope you've been enjoying your stitching this week!  
Sharing at Kathy's Quilts for Slow Sunday Stitching.

Thanks for a fun project, Lori!

I really like that blue that goes with the touch of blue in the blocks. Your "primitive" quilting is perfect.

Oh I love the blue border that picks up the bit of blue in the body of the quilt!

What fun to see this little quilt taking shape. Better yet is how much enjoyment you are getting from it. That makes it all worthwhile!

Your 50 Shades of Brown is SEW sweet. Way to find a way to work in the Color of the Month for the RSC, Diann!!

It turned out so nice, and will be even better with hand quilting.

The blue border is the perfect complement to your four-patches! I love it! Your quilting is perfect for it, too! What a fun finish this will be! :)

Rainbow Jungle is so cute, Diann. This one is sweet too and I know how soothing it is to sit and hand sew your quilting lines, stress free stitching.

The teal really frames and highlights the browns in the center of the quilt. It's a very pretty little mini.

Your quilting looks very good to me.
