Now that we are easing into our school routine I thought I would add a little something 'new' to the mix. Like many of you, I spend time waiting in school pick-up lines, at ballet practice, sitting at the park while the kids play, dentist/doctors appointments....the list is endless I think...SO, I decided to do some hand piecing. I was inspired by Alison and the pattern called Jazz Hands or Erica's Honesty found in Material Obsession 2.
My plan is to cut into my scraps. I hope to really push the limits of color combinations. This block shown below is not entirely put together...I need another row of kite shaped pieces to border this...but I'm at a loss as to whether I want to follow the pattern in the book or to do something on my own.
Once I get a few more blocks done, I'll check back in for your advise!
The other new adventure in quilting this weekend was a curves class. How to do curves and still have your project lay flat! It was a good class and I'm happy to have learned the technique. Now I need to keep pushing myself to finish the project instead of adding to my pile of WIPs!
