Scrappy Star Quilt

This is the next little quilt I will be quilting.  The pattern comes from the book, Remembering Adelia:  Quilts Inspired by Her Diary by Kathleen Tracy produced by That Patchwork Place.

I thought I would hate it…but then I tried it.  What did I try?

Hand Piecing.

With all of the modern tools I have, why do hand piecing?  When I was traveling, I didn’t have a sewing machine, and I still wanted to put a project together. That’s when I discovered I really like piecing  by hand. I cut this project out over a year ago; so when I came home, I pulled it out of a drawer. While watching the Rio Olympics, I’ve been hand piecing the blocks of this Scrappy Star Quilt.

After each square was pieced together, I used my sewing machine to sew a row together.

I’ll keep you posted on the progress of this little quilt.

Happy Monday!
