Slow Sunday Stitching -- Candy Cane Mini Top Complete

I finished all the hand stitching on my little candy cane mini.  Next up -- QUILTING!  Yeah.  I also found the other kit this week.  My neighbor, Karen, gave both of these little projects to me.  They are from By Thy Hands at

 My neighbor bought a bunch of little "kits" somewhere really cheap and gave a couple to me.  It's fun work.  The little piece of paper with it shows a pieced block that will go with it.  It also came with some fabric, but not enough???  Guess it's not a complete kit.  No wonder why it was on sale at such a good price.

What once started out a Slow Sunday Stitching project just because I needed to put something in my to-go bag quickly IS NOW COMPLETE!  I'm still new to hand applique and put the star blocks in my to-go bag so I would have something to do.  I started that after Thanksgiving in 2016.

I quilted it with Circle Lord's giant template board called Milkyway.  Here's the pieced back.  I found some cute heart/flag blocks from a project I started but then didn't do any more blocks.  It was perfect for this little 46" x 46" quilt.  I won't bore you with the other details.  You can read more here.

I'm linking up at Kathy's Quilts for Slow Sunday Stitching.  You can see all the other wonderful projects participants are linking here.


  1. Nice finish! At first, I thought you had magical powers and could make your quilt levitate into position for the picture, but then I saw the hint of a clothes line....

  2. Lovely finish. I like the backing fabric/pattern too!

  3. Your quilt is very pretty. I like your little mini also.

  4. Congrats on finishing this great quilt! Very creative backing too!
    Thanks for linking up to Slow Sunday Stitching!

  5. Isn't if funny how quilts evolve. Sometimes you have an idea you need to turn into a quilt, and sometimes you just need a project to work on. Love how it turned out.
