A few more blocks

I forgot how much I liked hand piecing! It is very slow but contemplative....right up my alley right now. I did start doing some of the applique. Since it is small groups of flowers of leaves it goes pretty quickly. In Kristie's book she has you journal as you make the quilt. At first I put that part aside but my Tuesday quilting buddies talked me into doing it. Now I feel the need to make another journal cover! Those will be in tomorrow's post.

Weather has cooled off here in Georgia...thankfully.

Oh, I didnt know you were hand piecing! I just started hand piecing a quilt for the first time last week and am addicted. Any tips?

Now here's some fantastic blocks. Hand pieced too eh? Now that's an effort a girl can respect!

Beautiful blocks! I've only done machine piecing but can see the appeal of not having to sit in front of a machine :)

Can't wait to see your journal cover! That's a wonderful book by Kristi. Have you seen Ille's journal that she did with it? Beautiful!
