Slow Stitching Sunday


I can't believe how long it's been since I blogged about Mae's Grandmother's Flower Garden--way back in January when we laid it out on the floor. (I'm not counting when I admitted to my big whoopsie the other day. That has been fixed and forgotten about.)

Row 5 was sewn on last night and blocks for rows 6 and 7 are ready attention.  She asked me the other day if her flower quilt was ready for her to cuddle up in. I had to admit that I hadn't been working on it much. She tells me in her super sweet voice that I need to forget all this other stuff--imagine a cute little toe head waving her hand over my knitting and crochet projects--and only work on her flowers. She is in such a hurry for her quilt. It makes me smile every time I remember out conversation......I told that story here.

Since that conversation, this Gramma has been stitching away every evening. It takes one good evening to stitch the blocks into a row. Then a night or 2 to sew the row on.  So there has been a lot of Slow Stitching here at Gramma's Quilting (Living)Room.

Read Kathy's inspirational post today at Kathy's Quilts: Slow Stitching Sunday and then visit others as the Slow Stitch on Sunday.

I can't blame her...it's so pretty / no wonder she's in a hurry :)

I am awed by this amazing amount of hexies. The fabrics are blending so well and it looks gorgeous. I'm with little Mae...get on with it Grandma! I can totally understand her anxiety to have this quilt wrapped around her little self.

Out of the mouths of babes. . .

Handwork takes longer, but it's worth it. Not that the little ones understand that ... but they will ... someday. ha! I think your GFG is gorgeous!

Lovely work. At least you will know that this quilt will be loved for ever. I have an acquaintance who asked me recently how she would go about selling a quilt given to her for her wedding because she didn't like it much. My heart did a silent bleed for the unknown quilter.....

You got great inspiration. They do take a lot of stitching! Looks fabulous so far. I haven't worked on mine for two weeks.

This quilt is beautiful. A lovely traditional scrappy flower garden quilt. The green fabrics make each flower stand out. I commend you on your piecing skills.

My grandmother made one and my sister has it, she will treasure it forever!

I love your flower garden quilt! With such a cutie asking for it to be done - I'm sure she will be tickled pink when she can cuddle in it.
