|gathering tools and fabrics to stitch block #1|
I am using 2 Moda charm packs called "hello luscious" which have been sitting around here for a long time waiting for just the right project. And this is it!
I have some green yardage and some light neutral on standby if needed.
I hand pieced the entire first block while waiting in the lobby of a hotel for my parents to return from a bus trip. It was the most relaxing way to wait for the bus that was carrying my loved ones on a long journey in a snow storm. I didn't even notice how worried I was that the bus was more than an hour late because I was distracted in the best kind of way!
I fussy cut the teal fabrics and am very pleased with how my first block turned out. The tutorial video for block #1 is here and if you are new to hand piecing, I recommend watching it to learn all the tips and techniques.
I'm linking up to the block #1 link party.
Hop over to see the other hand piecing delights and hopefully you will be tempted to join in... not only for the relaxing fun of hand piecing, but also there are lots of prizes to be won. This week you can win a gift certificate to the Fat Quarter shop by posting a photo of your first block.
Who can resist all this wonderfulness?!?! Thanks to Patty and Kristin for creating this opportunity for us!
