Hand piecing class

I figured since I enjoy having a portable project on the go that I should do a hand piecing class to learn properly.

It was a matter of bumbling my way through and hoping for the best before.

The class was run by Mary of Drapers of Mount Macedon and my first class was on 13 March - 13 days after my major wrist op and 2 days since I was put in plaster - well past my elbow!!

I managed well enough although I would have been happier if my points matched more often but then again I was effectively doing it one handed so I decided to cut myself some slack.

My delicious Aster Manor FQ bundle was used to make the quilt and it's turning out nicely!

Here is a pic of my block from Mary's blog:


  1. Whoohoo I get to be your first follower. Love your blog set up: very cheery and colourful. Sadia from the forum here. I am going to enjoy looking through your postings and links. Nothing like a little blog surfing especially since you have wrist problems.
    Cutting yourself some are too funny. I think you can be forgiven for your points not being as accurate as usual. Love those colours and prints you are working with. Beautiful. My favourites.
    I have the Dear Jane CD but haven't started yet. I was waiting to get my CW BOM forum tops finished. I am still doing the CW blocks though and was thinking of doing the Dear Jane ones for it. Great thread with wonderful quilters on it.
    Looking forward to following your adventures.

  2. yay Shirley! Thanks for your comments!
