Aunt Sukey Spins Off

Coming to life:

Aunt Sukey Spins Off

This will be a bed quilt…I don’t have a good way to photograph it, but you can see that I am making some progress.

I had originally planned on this being a scrappy red and white quilt.  But then I won the gorgeous Island Batik fabric (so excited)!  Why didn’t I switch some of those half square triangles to flying geese?  It would’ve been easier.  Alas…I didn’t think to do that until after I cut the fabric.

Nope…not all my seams are lined up.  I’m okay with that.  Seeking perfectionism doesn’t make me happy.  My happiness is in the creative process, and one day, a finished project.

Speaking of slow stitching (you can’t be much slower than me), have you seen Mark Lipinski’s blog featuring the Slow Stitching Movement?  I find it quite inspiring.  Perhaps you will too!

Now, slowly on to the borders.

  3. Laura,

    Even if I squint I can’t see any mismatched corners … mind you, the viewing distance might have something to do with that!

    It is looking great!
