Hand Piecing Project

Hello I have finally entered the hand piecing realm. I have been quilting for quite a few years now and although I dabbled with English paper piecing in my quilter beginnings, (and gave up I might add ) I have not tried this since. I have done alot of hand applique and quilting, stitchery etc but never hand piecing. I am loving it, there is a hand pieced project in the latest Better Homes and Gardens Patchwork and Quilting Mag. A small quilt with a star pattern and the hand piecing directions, so I thought why not, I love having something to work on at night while my husband surfs the TV channels. ( haha) Its also great to take along to quilting groups. My hand quilting project is still on the go and I must admit I do feel a little guilty about this but I have made a deadline and will try to do some work on this daily. ( Yeah right ) Well all that said here is a picture of the few stars I have pieced so far. [caption id="attachment_115" align="aligncenter" width="300"] My Hand Pieced Stars[/caption] Please excuse the pins in this pic as I set them up on my design wall for the photo. I am having so much fun revisiting my scrap bag. I look forward to your comments. Happy stitching Sharon
