Hand piecing has not been my forte' but I am applying myself to the challenge these days. This project is called Judie's 4-Patch & I am just beginning to enjoy it. . . my problem being . . . of course, I want it to go faster!
The blocks themselves are easy, but it's the spot where they all come together when you add the setting fabric, muslin, in this case. . . that's the challenge! There are 8 spots that all come together at all four corners of each block.
I am improving & the points are laying down flatter now, but it takes a bit of concentration. Just don't know what I'm going to do when it comes to the final press before the quilter gets it . . .
Anyway, I thought I should give it my best try since we will soon be reproducing the Friendship Ring block mentioned on the last blog post! The ARDCO template sets are here & we have begun to work on our first blocks; that is, our Thursday Girls are lending a huge helping hand. And in many cases, more than that because they are the hand piecing experts, so I'm totally relying on their experience here. Tomorrow we will see the first attempts on Friendship Ring & I am sure they will be excellent! Will keep you updated!
