Slow Stitching Sunday.....

A while back I cut out all of these strips for a log cabin quilt.

I started to sew them together by machine last week, but my sewing machine started to make a funny noise, so I thought I better stop sewing until I could have it looked at.  It's over 30 years old and done miles and miles of stitching.  I was in a quilt shop a year or so ago and saw the same machine as mine displayed among other old Bernina's-- it must be considered an antique!

Anyway, I decided that I would hand piece the quilt.  I'm not glad about my machine making funny noises, but I'm glad because I am really enjoying piecing this quilt by hand.

  1. I still have a log cabin on my bucket list. It would be a great pattern to hand piece.

  2. Wow Rose, hand pieced?! What a commitment this will be, good luck, I am sure you will do a wonderful job of it

  3. That's a lot of hand-piecing - but what a sense of accomplishment you'll have! Hope your Bernina is home and happy soon!

  4. Enjoy all your stitching. The good thing about doing it by hand is that it's a lot more portable.

  5. How fabulous! Sorry to hear about your machine, but happy that you are hand piecing! Enjoy your stitching and thanks for linking up!
