More Slow Sunday Stitching

First I want to wish a Happy Thanksgiving week-end to my Canadian friends. Here in the USA many are celebrating Columbus Day week-end. Sure wish our Thanksgiving here was farther from Christmas. How nice that would be.

Well, since it is Sunday, I have been hand-piecing some more on my Triangles of the Past. This quilt is made medallion style. So, I will just keep adding rows around the center square. Hopefully, I will be able to complete the other 3 black/gray/brown sides today.
You would think that because I am stitching on a drawn straightline that my seams would be perfectly straight. Sometimes they are a little off. But, I doubt it will make a difference in the overall project.
If you missed my previous post, the photo below shows how the quilt will look when finished. This is from an old Australian quilt magazine.

Today I am linking up to Kathy's Slow Sunday Stitching. Check out what others are hand-stitching today. Hope you find time to slow stitch something, too.

Enjoy your hand stitching today and thanks for linking up!

Love your project! I agree about hand piecing so much fun, I want to try Inklingo cause I hate to mark all those seam lines with templates.

I love your quilt. It is looking terrific. I do EPP but haven't tried hand stitching. Great stitches.

Fantastic project! I love hand piecing and sometimes my stitching lines get a bit crooked too. I don't think it matters all that much...sewing by hand is much more forgiving!

I love that quilt, and your colors are gorgeous together! You're doing a great job on that stitching too :*)

I love the quilt you are working on! I haven't done much hand piecing but I have done some small projects and have really enjoyed them.
