Slow stitching with liberated log cabin and more

I get a lot of joy from sitting with a needle and thread and slowly stitching. 

I am hand stitching the liberated log cabin small quilt that I started last year and have blogged about before.  Here is a photo of it today......almost done.

I finished another zen stitching piece this past week.  I used a denim scrap and a fabric scrap piece and used different colors of 12 wt thread for the circle stitching following the patterns of the flowers.  This is my #12  Stitch Meditation.

Today I have some pieces ready to do another stitchery.  A lace scrap I couldn't decide which layout so I took photos and I used a Pin It pin on a piece of cardstock and I may cut that smaller.  The Stitch Meditation is supposed to be something you don't take more than a few minutes to decide.  So I took photos and will go back to it later.

I am linking to Kathy's Quilts:  Slow Sunday Stitching    here

and Quilting is more fun than Housework  Oh Scrap!   here

Be sure to check out these links and see what others are doing.

Smiles and hugs....Caryl


  1. The binding on your liberated log cabin small quilt is perfection. Love all those happy colours. Love too, the whirls and whirls of beautiful stitching on your Stitch Meditation piece. Such neat stitching to be seen. Sometimes it is hard to decide upon an arrangement that is pleasing to your eye, isn't it. I know you will come up with something lovely.

    1. Thanks for commenting Kim. When I started looking for binding through my stash that little fat quarter just seemed so perfect! When doing Stitch Meditations the rules are not to take too long deciding...so if I have a problem I just leave it and come back another day!

  2. Hi there! I've been enjoying reading a few of your post. I just found you today at Kathy's Slow Sunday Stitching. It seems like you really enjoy creating mini quilts. I have always admired them and am now ready to fill the wall of my guest room with them. Thank you for sharing!

    1. Thank you for visiting my blog and commenting. Yes...I do like to make mini quilts best!

  3. I love that project you are binding! And I have that green backing fabric in my stash!
    I wish I could pick it right up off the computer screen and finish that hand stitched binding... so fun!

    1. Yes...yes...yes....it is so fun!! I have the completed mini quilt on my next post. Thanks for commenting!
