A few stitches here and there while watching soccer, or sitting in traffic jams. Embroidering a whole block on the evenings my husband was out of town. Hand quilting while watching episodes of 'The Paradise'. This quilt has been a long but completely enjoyable process.
The pattern is from the book 'S is for Stitch' by Kristyne Czepuryk. Initially I was following along with Liz's Stitch Along, but I couldn't even keep up with stitching a block a week and in the end just took it at my own pace.
I used fabrics sent to me by the lovely Hydee, and added in a few of my own. I hand quilted using a light grey perle cotton. The backing is a fun chevron print and the binding is a plain Klona cotton.
And then, thankfully, my sister had a baby girl and I knew this was the perfect gift for her!
Linking up with TGIFF and Finish It Up Friday.
This is my fourth finish for the 2014 Finish Along Quarter 4.
