Slow Sunday Stitching 2/12/17

I'm checking in for another day of Slow Sunday Stitching at Kathy's Quilts.
The snow from Friday hadn't melted yet and today we had icy slush falling earlier today so it's another good day to be in.

I had hoped to get the blocks I prepared two weekends ago stuffed with batting during the last day of Judy Laquidara's Quilt-A-Thon yesterday.  I didn't get them done then but fortunately, last night for TCM's 31 Days of Oscar, they aired one of my favorites, The Beatles movie "A Hard Days Night".

I had to tape it last night because we were already watching something else when it started.  So I got to watch it today while stuffing the blocks. 

I only got seven of the ten stuffed because I ran out of the batting I'm using for this.  When I went to the store last week, they didn't have any of the brand I was looking for so I'm going to have do a little searching around for it.  Also thanks to Elizabeth (a no-reply blogger) who commented with a great tip for getting these blocks easily stuffed with batting which I'm going to try on the next round of blocks. 

So I'm all set for a stitching session when we watch our Sunday shows later tonight.  When they're done and I get some batting for the other three, I'll have thirty blocks that are quilted and waiting to be sewn together.  Not too bad!

If you're not already coming here from Kathy's blog, head over there and see the beautiful quilt she saw being hand quilted during a recent guild visit.  It's truly lovely!  Happy Stitching!

I'm not sure what you mean by stuffing blocks? Maybe you could show a photo of what you are doing.
Enjoy the evening stitching!
