Slow stitching on a snowy day

We got our first noticeable
snow fall last night, though
it is already melting off
the sidewalks this morning.
I am back to working
on my hand stitched
Trip Around the World
quilt...nice break between
sewing and knitting
Christmas gifts.
I am at row 30 of the 2 inch
squares. The original project
by Brigitte Giblin (thru Facebook)
stopped at row 30. She did
post a diagram that shows how
to add more rows to make up
to a King size quilt. I think
I am going to continue on
and go for a King size. I
am also going to hand
quilt it.
Definitely a long term project!

I just love this! Sounds like you really enjoy the hand piecing and the hand quilting will bring it to life! What a wonderful fun journey!

I love the colours! I'd love to make one of these - it looks such a fun pattern - are you piecing with EPP or teeny running stitch?

Sarah said...

Lovely fabrics!

Kaja said...

This is quite a project - bravo for going for the king size, it should be tremendous!

It looks good Suzanne. Great decision to continue to a king size. You won't regret it I am sure. Love it.
