I generally sew everything by machine. Including most mending and hemming and quilt binding. The rare exception is embroidery once every few years.
But recently I hand bound a little wall hanging quilt and enjoyed the process. Then I hand bound a surprise gift with as much pleasure. Now my quilt guild has asked members to applique a quilt square for a charity quilt.
This is what the final quilt plan looks like, but on the right is the colour palette that was chosen.
I cut the template and traced onto good ol’ cereal box board. Then cut out my pieces.
After sewing pieces together on my machine and pressing the edges under, I was ready to hand sew.
And 1 baseball game sitting in the stands sewing, it is all put together. I definitely need to improve my curves, think it looks not too bad.
