I wanted to learn how to hand piece, so I started a tumbling blocks quilt.
I used Kathleen Tracy’s Tumbling Blocks quilt from her book Remembering Adelia as my inspiration, but since it was my first experiment with hand piecing, I made the diamonds a bit larger than she called for in the pattern.
I had soooooo much fun with this hand piecing project!!! I looked forward to t.v. time every night so that I could work on it. Within just a few nights I had enough block units assembled into rows, and I could start putting the rows together.
I added the borders today and got the binding cut. Can’t wait to get this one quilted.
And because I enjoyed it so much, I started a new hand piecing project Tuesday night! The new one will be a Grandmother’s Flower Garden style piece in Civil War repros. For that I’m using the template stamp that I got over at Good Wives Co. last week.
