My kind of slow stitching

Slow stitching...for me, is an improv piece that takes forever to progress.
Four years ago, our Wednesday night group had a purple challenge.  It started with dark and light "purple" fence rail pieces. Two members have finished their quilts..
OK, two out of 12!!! 
 I keep plugging along..
I have two of the purple challenge pieces going...Starting to love it.
...Slowly proceeding...
Slowly, Even by machine.
This photo shows the addition of another border.

It's looking great! I love the colour combo in this, keep going... at your own pace :)

Loving that color combo! Slow is good--and fun is the goal--not speed--at least for me these days...Enjoy hugs, Julierose

Isn't it interesting to simply think about our projects? You've chosen well. Good blend of pink to purple and the florals add just the right touch. I like this border. Are you going to add another?

Sometimes slow is just how it goes. I like the colours and that border - how big are you planning to go?

This is so, so pretty!

Slow can be good, gives one time to think what to do next. Toss around a few possibilities. Change ones mind and change it again.

Great color contrast and piecing!
I'm starting to appreciate slow stitching too, anxiety is not good for the creative juices.

The perk of slow is that you get to relish the process. It took me such a long time to appreciate this concept. Now I enjoy quilting in all its forms and processes and techniques. Sometimes I race through;other times I move at a snail's pace; always I try to just enjoy whatever is happening.
