I have a true passion for blocks, no doubt about it :-)
I had to put some of my Just Plain Nuts blocks up on a small board, to show on Kathrines Quilte Stue’s inspiration evening.
I am teaching both Nearly Insane and Just Plain Nuts there through the autumn and next spring. I am so looking forward to it!
It is a sewing machine class (mostly), with sewing on foundation piecing paper (and some hand piecing maybe), but one can off course do all these blocks by hand if one has a drive for it.
These are the last 3 blocks I have finished – still a lot of piecing to do before I can call these blocks a quilt.
I find that I enjoy both English paper piecing and traditional hand piecing very very much.
Some projects lend themselves more to one method, and some projects lend themselves more to the other method.
Bottom line – the more you know and the more you learn, the more fun you will have :-)
My DH has been seriously ill lately, and I know nothing as soothing to the mind as to do hand work.
He is slowly on the mend now (I hope)
I think I am lucky to have the possibility to let my mind wander and rest, amongst fabric and thread!
If you have found me very absent minded lately, that’s why……
