So Far... So Good...
It seems as though a few of you are up for a hand piecing quilt along which is great to hear! I'll be drawing out a rough sketch this weekend but so far this is what I'm thinking:
12 ~ 6.5" (unfinished) blocks
I'll be looking through Quilter's Cache to find traditional blocks and re-size them. I'll post the out line soon but I'm thinking for the first block a Churn Dash might be nice :) I'm going to be using scraps. I'm also going to be working on it with my oldest daughter. I think this is a great opportunity to teach hand / life skills and encourage useful creativity. I'll be posting the rough draft and some tips I've picked up too if you are new to hand piecing as I am. I'm also going to try to put a linky thing for each of our quilt along post so we can share our progress and encourage each other. Sound okay?
Have a great weekend!!!
