Having never done English Piecing before, I am delighted to say that I am thoroughly enjoying this new experience. The craft is ideal for picking up when only a few minutes is available for sewing or carting around in a caravan to sit and relax in the outdoors. I have to admit that the outdoors is the ideal light because I do like to use tiny hand stitches, which can be hard on the eyes without good light.
If you have the Patchwork & Stitching Vol 9 No 4, you will see the quilt that I am making on page 24. I am not copying the colours nor are the values exactly the same. So far I am happy with the results considering I am using some material that I have had here for some time and adding to it as the project progresses. It would have been so much easier if I had planned ahead of time, but hey I am a learner and learning from my mistakes!
