'Big Stitch' Hand Quilting and Hand Embroidery Project..

'Big Stitch' hand quilting small quilt.

'Bohemian Paisley' embroidery kit  by Bucilla.

What's Up Wednesday!
I'm hand quilting my art quilt with big stitch quilting. The quilt design is by Debbie Bowles of Maple Island Quilts.

The embroidery kit I picked up at my local fabric store. The bright colors are great against the dark background. I'm doing satin stitches right now.

Don't you love the stuffed little red cat? My alter ego.

We have spring thunder showers today, entertaining!
Happy stitching!


  1. Your alter ego?
    The embroidery kit is awesome! The design and colours will stand out against the dark background. Have fun.
    Also on your Big Stitches quilt the colours blend beautifully; every piece picks up the colour of another piece.
    Enjoy your day!

    1. Thank you Queenie. The kit reminded me of your projects.
      Yes, part of me is much like a feisty red kitty. I keep that part mostly suppressed.

  2. Nice to see the bright colors. It's a dreary rainy day here.

  3. Thank you Pamela. April showers bring May flowers. Hope you get sun and flowers soon.

  4. Your cat is a cutie - I can just see her hopping up and down and stomping her little feet (paws?) when something goes wrong with your sewing - or demanding that you stitch more. Fun!!

  5. we had thunder AND snow last week??? The weather is crazy....beautiful, cheery cloth Janie. It's always such a pleasure to come here x
