Welcome to the series of my slow stitching projects documentation.

Basically, I wanted to document the slow progress of my hand-stitched projects on a weekly/bi-weekly basis for a couple of reasons:

  1. I wanted to make myself accountable and make sure I do sit and enjoy hand-stitching at least one session per week.
  2. Documenting progress is always something I love to do. In fact, that is why this blog started anyway.
  3. To create excitement even with little progress. Small progress does matter!
  4. I hope I can inspire you to do the same too. So share your slow stitching projects you’re working on too in the comments.

For this week, what has been growing?

There are affiliates links within this post. Please find my full disclosure here.

I progressed a little more by finishing up the diamond I showed last week.

I am pretty happy with it.

You know, I keep seeing the finished quilt photo on the cover of the book, and I just can’t wait to get mine done. Those applique parts are going to be challenging, but I can’t wait till I get to that part too.

It is all exciting, and although I can’t wait till mine is looking like that finished quilt, I am enjoying every little stitch.

This week I stitched while listening to a podcast and basted some pieces while watching TV with my sons.


If you want to make one too – this one is a pattern from this book which I totally love and highly recommend.

(Notes: The book always goes out of stock – if you happen to find it available, grab it. You’ll love the projects and all the eye candy in there)

I have made the correct size hexagon template 7/8″ called in that pattern that I share with you on the TLMC Resource library too. This one has quotes on them!

Check this post for that.



This week, I also made some basted elongated Hexagons for my Lucy Boston Quilt. 

I am fussy cutting with intention to get a secondary pattern from the layout of the shapes. I love how this one is turning out. I haven’t piece them together yet, and I don’t think I will just yet. Will be collecting the basted pieces in this new box I got till I travel and bring this box to piece them together into blocks.

I am loving the potential of fussy cutting in this block. And to be honest, after seeing the Lucy Boston Quilts I shared over in my last three of 3 posts, I am getting all excited already thinking of how I would quilt it!

I have made an printable template for this Lucy Boston Block which I share  on the TLMC Resource library. 

Check this post to see how easy you can cut printable templates I made. (The videos in there are for hexagons, but this is just an elongated hexagons, therefore, the method is still the same)

    I am a newcomer to your newsletter, finding you through the Hexie template with quilting messages (on Pinterest)! I’m also a newbie to quilting in general, so I look forward to learning more with your blog.

    I am trying to find 1″ elongated hexagon papers to print out as well as 1″ squares. I cannot locate any. Do you have them on your site?
