This blog will mark my journey into techniques I have yet to perfect. Hand sewing pieces together is one of them. So far, I have been avoiding handsewing unless I am sewing down bindings.
I plan to do a complicated Mariners Compass to finish the Storm at Sea quilt which has been growing (very)slowly over the past year or so. I have redesigned the position of the Compass a few times already.
Along with this I am about to begin the Farmer's Wife Sampler Quilt. This is based on a competition held in the 1920's. Letters from farmer's wives all over the (American) countryside wrote in, and these are the blocks their letters inspired.
A number of members of the Craft Forum I belong to are attempting this quilt of 111 blocks 6" square.
