Summer Slow Stitch

Just a quick update on my Summer slow-stitch project!

Pairing 2 1/2 solid squares with low volume background fabric is proving to be a winner for a slow stitch project.   I start by making a bunch of single blocks.  4 of these are then joined together.  Once I've got 4 sets of 4, I join those together for a block of 16!  (Read more about the block and it's assembly.)

Ta da!

Plus I've got a pile of more single blocks done and am about ready to start assembling them into a 16 block.   

Joining everything together brings just enough challenge because of all the partial seams.  But dong these by hand is much easier than it would be by machine.

Have a wonderful day! Patty


  1. I forgot you were making these...they are awesome. Can't wait to see a finish.

  2. These are delightful and it's fun to see your growing blocks!

  3. Those are really pretty blocks - a fun idea!

  4. Oh, I love these blocks! They are so fun and inviting. It's a quilt I wish I'd thought to make!

  5. Oh, another hand piecing project I want to try. Love hand piecing in the evenings while watching TV.

  6. Oh I love how this looks! Very cool execution.


Thanks for visiting Elm Street Quilts. Looking forward to hearing from you!
