The preliminary stitching in the ditch continued yesterday on the Carol Doak quilt. I am using invisible polyester thread for this stage. I wish it weren't so shiny, but it is less noticeable than any other choice I could have made. This stage is monotonous enough that I am able to listen to a book I downloaded from the library.
I also attached the binding to the front of the split nine-patch quilt yesterday. Today I’ll be doing handwork on it as my Slow Stitching Sunday project at Kathy’s Quilts. Except for the backing, this quilt came entirely from my scrap stash. The binding fabric was part of a scrap bag I won as a door price during the Hawaii quilting cruise.
