Beginning Hand Piecing

Hand Piecing is not just a great way to piece small blocks and tricky curves, it makes a great portable project and so relaxing to sit and stitch a block or two in the evening rather than sit at the machine. We have a couple easy $5 patterns that include a template for tracing your blocks. These simple square shapes can be turned into a variety of quilt designs. You will learn the proper way to start and finish seams and several tricks to make hand piecing accurate and fun.
