I love hand Piecing!!

This is my newest project, all hand piecing and using French General's Rouenneries!


The brown is just the underneath tablecloth.


Aren't the fabrics just gorgeous!!!
I havn't blogged much since before Christmas, been trying to work out the back problems....they are now fixed with the help of a great chiropractor but it turns out the knee problems were separate, and I have a miniscus tear!!! I will be seeing the orthopaedic surgeon on Tuesday!!!! So enough of that...since I mostly sit with ice on my knee, I've really come along on my newest Hand piecing project!! I'm crazy for French General Fabrics so this quilt is very special to me...it will be a long time yet for a finish though!!!! I havn't even been in my studio for a few weeks.I hope everyone else is healthy and looking forward to spring...it's been a Long winter here already!!!!

HI Ruth

I love handpiecing too. To piece curves that go in opposite directions by hand- I found more difficult though than piecing that by machine- so this is truly remarkable!

First of all, this is AMAZING stuff!! Absolutely Gorgeous. And second, I think I was you MugRug partner. I received 2 beautiful Coffee themed rugs, and some fabric that my oldest daughter is trying to confiscate. If you sent something to Louisiana, THANK YOU. If this isn't you, OOPS!! LOL but I still think these circles are impressive!

Those hand pieced circles remind me of those candies that come in the individual wrappers...the name escapes me at the moment... Thanks for visiting my blog. Gail

I really like hand-painted sort and signs! I think it is really a experienced art work. And thus Runescape Money can Hanif Kureshi, typography fundi and also art representative in W+K Delhi. He soon started a project in which him WOW Gold and the staff digitize your typograpy of Indian hand typographers, to be able to protect as well as support their art. Search for much more about the precise course of action and specific artists on his / her Cheap WOW Gold site. How much of an wonderful project to make and nurture Hanif!
