Happy 4th of July! I can't believe it is July 4th already! This year is absolutely flying by...
I hope you all get to have a few moments to stitch before the busy weekend to celebrate the 4th of July! Those of you who live in the USA anyway! I got lots of prep done on my new quilt yesterday and I hope to find a few moments each morning and evening (except for during the fireworks of course!) Dont you hate it when you have some exciting stitching ready and then can't find any time to stitch!?! The weather is beautiful in the Midwest...cool, slightly breezy and pleasant temps for the last few days, so the picnickers will be thrilled with the forecast for family and friendly gatherings. The nice weather does not help me find time for stitching either...but I will steal away a few moments here and there to stitch a bit now an then.
That's what's so nice about hand stitching. I can do it on the porch, in the car, at the park, and of course all comfy cozy in my recliner! Perhaps I can show you some more snippets soon.
I can't seem to hold the camera still this fine day, but there's a little patriotic snippet of my next quilt! It will be a quilt using my favorite techniques...English Paper Piecing and Appliqué. I may add a little wool appliqué as well! Once you start with wool appliqué, it's a bit addictive, just like our other favorite techniques in quilting.
What's your favorite stitching technique to piece a quilt?
