Hand Pieced…

by Kate on April 20, 2010

A little while ago I spotted a hand pieced, six-pointed star quilt hanging up at Patchwork on Central Park. It is breathtaking and the fussy cutting that has gone into those stars is nothing short of inspirational.

Then, I saw these stars that Rita’s mother in law created – stunning.

Sufficiently inspired, Chris and I headed off to Kate’s hand piecing class which are held at Patchwork and learnt the basics of hand piecing – I loved every minute of it.

I’ve always considered myself far too impatient to hand piece, but I wanted to give it a go and I am glad I did.

It is a long term project but I hope one day to create something as beautiful as the two quilts that have inspired me.
