Handstitched Circles and Colouring Wallets

This was a great week for finishing projects.

I managed to finish up the hand quilting I started a couple of weeks ago.  I really need to look into whether there is a less taxing way to hand quilt.  My forefinger and thumb have been so stiff since doing this quilt but the results were well worth it.

I also made a couple of Colouring Wallets (from JCasa Pattern Shop) for my nieces who are lucky to be heading to Vietnam with Mum and Dad for holidays.  Hopefully this will keep them amused on some of their long trips.

This week I am linking up to {Sew} Modern Monday at Canoe Ridge Creations.


  1. Oh wow - your hand quilting is absolutely beautiful!! And what a great gift for your nieces!

  2. Wow! Your quilting is absolutely amazing! All those circles - no wonder your hand was sore. Fabulous result though!

  3. The quilting is wonderful! My thumb and forefinger always feel like that after hand quilting, and I haven't even done as large a project as this yet! Cute coloring wallets!

  4. Beautiful quilt! I love your thread choices, the colors really are beautiful.

  5. I am in awe of that hand quilting! I am yet to try it... For my fingers' sake! But it always does look so effective.
