Have you noticed that my blog is called Suburban STITCHER?
Well, that’s because I started this blog as a cross-stitcher only.
But now I do so much more…
Are you stitchers still out there? Do you still read me…even though I have sort of abandoned you? I hope so…
I have been working on Peppermint Twist lately. I have enjoyed seeing this piece come to life and develop. Still love it!
I also finished a little doll quilt for our neighbor’s little girl who had her 2nd birthday last weekend. I still had some scraps from my Berry Delicious jelly roll…so it turned into a cute little “coin” quilt…Finished size (before washing) is approximately 19 x 24.
I didn’t take a close up of the quilting, but I just stitched 1/4” in from both sides of the white sashing and also 1/4” in from the edges of the coins. Also I cheated…I sewed the binding on TOTALLY by machine.
Don’t throw me into quilt detention. I do know how to do it by hand…I just didn’t wanna.
