experimenting

As you might expect, I love experimenting with patchwork.

Here are some pictures of my latest efforts.

This 9″ block is hand appliqued. Not sure yet whether to sew more of this pattern. Pattern by Patricia Logan published in QNM April 2004 called “French Twist” is with 6″ blocks.100_6380_k

In April I sewed another litte coin purse. It is foundation paper piecing. Pattern for foundation is from Quilting Arts Modern Patchwork 2014 called “Mini Mayflower” by Katie Clark Blakesley.

And these blocks are waiting to be continued:

I found the inspiration for this work in a Japanese Magazine. I took a picture with my camera.

Fabrics are from Moda “Bright Essential Dots”, chosen by my dear hubby. Only the white and gray came from my stash.

Paper pieces are from Busyfingers Patchwork. White hexagons are 1 inch. When I sewed the gray triangles I used two different methods. Some are stitched by machine with water soluble thread. This is fast but you cannot obtain the same precision, which you get by sewing by hand.
