Slow Sunday Stitching


I only managed to get a few stitches in a new project this Slow Sunday. It makes for a somewhat dull photo.


This will eventually say Jingle all the way and have a cute kitten next to it--a match to the Plaid Tidings to You puppy I finished last week.  The patterns are from Lizzie Kate Tiny Tidings X.  

Lori of Humble Quilts had a free quiltalong based on an antique quilt, which she named Sajou after a quilt shop in France.  She posted the third and final instructions last week.  I got the triangle border made and was going along quite well until I mentioned on FB how good it looked--immediately thereafter a screwup occurred. 


Merde.  Fortunately I was able to cut multiple new pieces to remake this chopped off corner. 


I decided to stop where Lori did, with a small quilt about 18" square.  I'll choose backing and binding from stash, as I have very little left of the gifted Dargate Treasury sample cuts I used.

Glad you were able to fix your little corner issue. It is very beautiful Sajou quilt. It is very cohesive and I love the color play. Congrats! ;^)
P.S. Funny how English people learn the bad French word easily, lol. :^D

Your Sajou is very pretty - love your fabric choices. I thought about making it but I don't think I could chop off the flying geese borders.

This is a real beauty! I think a lot of us had little 'issues' with the border, but all's well that ends well!

The corners were a bit of a trick for me to post how I did them. Your quilt looks lovely now!

There's always a challenge know matter how small a quilt maybe. Great choice of fabrics. That was a beautiful line. You're quilt is lovely.
