SAL in November

It's time for our Stitch Along's tri-weekly check in. I've been doing a lot of needlepoint lately but I have managed to finish up the embroidered block in the series I've been slowly working on this year.


As it turns out, there's one more block left to stitch. It's ready to go but I haven't begun it yet. This is roughly how I plan to lay out the quilt when I finally get to that point.


The blocks will be trimmed down before I then frame them up again. I'm going to try for a variety of sizes and shapes, squares vs rectangles. Still don't know what prints(s) I may use to turn these into a quilt though!

There's quite a bunch of us participating in this stitch along. I only made it about halfway through the list the last time. Hope to do better this time around, even if it takes a couple of days. 😊 There's a wide variety of needlework being done in this group. If you're interested in having this kind of motivation to keep your needlework moving along contact Avis via her blog. Our next check in will be on 2 December.

I don't want to let this momentous day pass without honoring those who sacrificed all for liberty and democracy.

  6. Pretty! And I like seeing the assembly plan. These little pieces have a real vintage feel to me, so if it was me, I'd be looking for a different 1930s reproduction print to frame each one. Looking forward to seeing what you decide :-)

  9. This is going to look like a lovely finish once you've picked out fabric and everything. And so close to a happy dance for the stitching too.
