Granny Square style
I stumbled on this lovely hand-pieced how to make a hand pieced quilt tutorial
last night while looking for a new project to make while I'm watching the TV - which is a lot these days. There are so many great shows to watch. One we started watching? True Detective
. So great with Woody Harrelson and Matthew McConaughey. We watched the first two episodes on Friday and thank goodness there's another one on tonight. I cannot wait to see what clues they unearth. Then wait a week for the next show? Oh noes.
Anyway...it turns out I really, really like sewing. Sure it's slow going, but it's peaceful and for some reason, I don't feel in a rush or impatient sewing by hand like I do when I'm at the machine.
I pulled out some teensy little squares I bought at a quilt show last year - a mini-charm pack from Moda called Boho. Cute. I picked the Granny Square block and got to sewing it all together.
I tried to keep my stitches small and consistent, but that was not possible. So I just tried my best to line up all the seams. Also, not possible, but I got pretty close.
I ironed and pressed and pinned. I even pulled out some stitches and re-did it for good measure.
In between doing loads of laundry and making dinner and loading up the dishwasher and making a garlic heavy hummus (sorry if you can smell it from there) I got it done! Hooray!
Time to make another one.
