I drafted a pattern for a mini quilt that ended up needing to be hand pieced. I think that it must have been 20 years since I last hand pieced. However, in this case, it was easier for me.
I started with pulling out some of my gorgeous Island Batik fabrics.
Next, I drew my paper piecing designs on a stabilizer that I was going to use to piece on so I didn't have to rip paper later. I was glad I was only doing one block!
Here you can see the drawing before I cut it apart into pieces.
Here's what the pieces looked like when the paper piecing was done.
This is the back.
Here's another finished section.
A progression on the hand piecing. It's getting better!
Done! All the hand piecing is complete!
Here's a picture with a pencil for scale.
A close up of the center. I steamed the top and it made it lay really flat!
I added some black around the edge to make the quilt square.
Come back Wednesday to see the quilting!
I hope you get to quilt today!
