Slow going with reverse stitching...

Just discovered Kathy's Slow Sunday Stitching- how could I have missed this before? Everything lately has been slow stitching and way too much reverse sewing. Among the slow projects is this center for a quilt called Drayton Hall by Di Ford. Those 3 pieces off by themselves are little birdie parts looking for a new place to land after being "unsewn".

New to broderie perse, the number of pieces that have been appliqued and then removed or repositioned are numerous - making for very slow stitching indeed. Eventually, this will be an almost complete circle with a slight opening at the top...but in the meantime...slow and steady is the way things go at Taylorsoutback.

Thank you for dropping by!!

Well it looks really good to me! I have not attempted broderie perse yet. I did see another Di Ford quilt on several blogs, a new mystery quilt called Mountmellick. I liked it so much I ordered the Quiltmania magazine. It will be some time before I get to it, but it has broderie perse too.

Slow and steady is lovely and relaxing. Your broderie perse is looking really good.

This will be magnificent! Di Ford's designs are things I admire from afar. I applaud you for tackling this!

The beginning is always the hardest, getting the flow of the piece. I'm always annoyed when I have to unsew, but always glad when I have. Your piece looks great and I love what you chose for the background.

Looks good to me. I have never done broderie perse
but I have collected the fabrics for her mystery quilt and it has some in it.

Wow, so glad I came over to see what you are up to! Di Ford quilts are just fantastic. Hope there is time in my lifetime to attempt one. Slow but steady and the circle will get completed. Looking forward to your slow progress.

Slow and steady wins the quilting race. ;-) Your broderie perse looks fabulous ... I hope you'll share the finished quilt when you're done.

I can only think of one broderie perse piece I have done. You have a beautiful piece in the works.
I like the applique piece in your blog header pictures.
