I’ve paper pieced before but it’s not my absolute favourite quilting thing to do.
I’m doing a pattern that has both small chunky bits alternating with looooong skinny strips, and those bits can just bite me. Also, I didn’t start this soon enough and I changed my mind too many times about what I’m doing so I’m a wee bit behind.
But on the plus side, look at what I did!
Now THIS is a satisfying part of quilting.
Binding made – check
To ensure maximum effect of pattern matching, get bottle of washable school glue – check
Binding sewn to front of quilt – check
Realize a heavy hand with the glue bottle is a bad thing – check
Decide to wash quilt in its present state – check
Block quilt, because hey it’s wet and needs blocking at some point – check
So, so worth it.
I’ve handsewn through three episodes worth of “Star Trek: Discovery” so far.
