Throughout 2018, while making my Scrappy Sprouts blocks for the Rainbow Scrap Challenge, I piled up a bunch of 2.5 inch squares in both neutrals and rainbow colors.
They were just thrown into my Little Penguin fabric basket at the side of my cutting table, so I pulled them out and sorted them into two piles.
I gathered up the rest of the supplies I thought I would need - needles, thread, scissors, a pincushion, and a zipper pouch to keep everything in.
And found the tutorial from Patty on marking and hand-piecing a seam.
Here's my first one - a 1/4 inch from the edge, ready to stitch!
Patty says my stitches should be 5 - 6 to an inch! And I am laughing here, because I got THREE! Lol!
But, hopefully, practice will make me better (if not perfect) so I will keep going!
Working on my first 4 patch - definitely getting those smaller stitches!
And look at that!
Hand-piecing will be fun to try, portable, and hopefully, a great new skill! I have already appreciated Patty's great step-by-step tutorials and Kristin's videos - I can tell I'm going to learn a lot!
