Slow Quilting or Just a Slow Quilter?

Sandy at Quilting for the Rest of Us has talked about slow quilting or taking her time to enjoy the process of making a quilt.  She posts every Monday on the subject and has many thoughtful insights.  Me?  I think I'm just a slow quilter.  I participated in my guild's UFO workshop on Saturday.  Was there from 9:30-2:30 with a short break for lunch and I got three of these blocks done.  Keep in mind that I had already sewn the flying geese, the half-square triangles, and the strips for the rest of the block construction during the class for this project back in October.  See what I mean about being a slow quilter? 

These blocks will be eventually become a tablerunner.  The fabrics are mostly Kansas Troubles.  The pattern, Geese in the Valley, was created  by Susan Shively of Midnight Owl Quilts* for a workshop for my quilt guild. 

In other stitching news, I'm continuing to work on Grace Mason.  I'm down to a little bit on the border, a fairly large over-one motif, some over-one lettering, a little blackwork and three large motifs on the bottom right.  In my head, that's about two nights worth of stitching, but in real life, it will probably be two to three weeks.  I'm getting anxious to finish this although I still enjoy working on this piece.

*No affiliation, but I have purchased several of her other lovely patterns


  1. Nothing wrong with slow quilting. :D You were probably busy visiting, right? Beautiful block! Looking forward to seeing Grace Mason again too!

  2. It's refreshing to meet another self-proclaimed slow quilter. I'm so tired of seeing these recipes for super quick quilts, quilts you can make in a weekend, that kind of thing. What the heck is the big rush!!!!

  3. There's nothing wrong with slow quilting. Slow and steady wins the race, as they say. I love that block!
