Slow, peaceful and contemplative stitching. My english paper pieced Passacaglia quilt continues to grow. So much so that it is too large for my design wall now - hence the need for photographing it on the carpet if I want to show all the rosettes together.
Just 4 more grey stars need to be added to this one and then its complete.
This one is my favourite so far.
This one has a place in my heart too.
And this was the first large one to be completed.
All the big rosettes are complete now. Its time to work on the little ones! That means lots of fussy cutting for the centres and lots of playing around with colours. Its a little too pink for my liking at the moment. Need to tone it down a bit with more neutral colours.
Heaven knows how I'll photograph it though until I start sewing some more of the rosettes together.
I can honestly say I'm enjoying this project more than any others I can think of.
Slow hand stitching is good for the soul !!
