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?
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.
