Slow Stitching Sunday - Service Project

© Kathy Duncan, 2016

As a member of Sew What's, a friendship group of the Quilter's Guild of Dallas, I am making heart pillows for breast cancer patients. This is a service project that we work on every February. Last year we made about 200 pillows. Our goal is to meet that number again this year.

For Slow Stitching Sunday with Kathy at Kathy's Quilts, I plan to close the backs on these. Four blue hearts are ready to close up. Six more need be quickly stitched around and then stuffed. With any luck this evening session Doc Martin and Downtown Abbey will find me stuff and stitching.


  1. What a fantastic way to give back to the community! I plan on doing some slow stitching during Downton Abbey tonight, as well. :)

  2. We have a few members who are breast cancer survivors. They have stressed with us how useful their heart pillows were. These pillows are squishier than heart surgery pillows. I don't know about you, but I am going to miss Downton Abbey.

  3. That sounds like heaven to me... slow stitching, Doc Martin AND Downton!
