Monday - A Stitch in Time
Watcing storyteller Diane Williams working on some hand quilting while she listened to stories in Jonesboro made my hands start itching to sew a bit. I have never hand-pieced a quilt. Thought I would try. All I had at hand in PA were some funky scraps but they were good enough to use for practice. I decided to try a nine patch. I love the simplicity of that pattern and the strait seams seemed to me to be pretty uncomplicated.
And they are - its the measuring that is hard for me. I am an "essence" person and true measuring is a burden for me.
But I am loving woking with the fabrics and the hand-sewing.
Another plus is that its meditative - and I can stitch while I am practicing stories. Multi-tasking is handy.
