To practice hand sewing a quilt I have started a new fun project which is much smaller and more manageable I think. It is only two layers – a red spotted fleece back and the cotton top which I have back stitched around the head of the new snowman and high-lighted some areas with metallic thread. What do you think?
Also I have purchased some new stash, with ideas in mind for some of it and the rest will have to wait until I have an idea or see a quilt pattern which I would like to try. I must try and finish something – it is a weakness of mine – to never complete things before starting something new. Ah well!
Finally, but no means least, I have completed enough Rose Window Blocks to reach the half way mark.
Well folks that is all for now

good idea to try hand quilting on a smaller project first!
and your Rose Window blocks are looking lovely!
I have done quite a few children’s quilts done like this in the past. They’re easy and fun to do, look great and are loved. Great hand quilting practice too. Your Rose Window quilt is beautiful.
Cute snowman throw, but those Rose Windows, they are spectacular all together!
What a clever idea to stitch around the snowman and I love the green stitching on the mittens. I like the idea of a smaller project (how come I never do that?!!). Your Rose Windows are simply gorgeous!
