I have a few active projects at the moment but I think I am most excited about this one, “Orangle Creamsicle”.
I really needed a project over the summer, which did not bind me to my sewing machine. I needed a hand sewing project but I did not want to do an EPP project, as I already have one on my WiP pile.
Remember this reject block from Sunday Best? Well, this block was saying to me it needs its own quilt to belong to. I decided that I would experiment and see if I could hand stitch improv blocks. Yes, the actual piecing by hand.
The limits/boundaries I currently using for this improv quilt are:
- Hand stitched blocks
- Mostly orange with additions of red, pink, and yellows.
- Accent pieces (filler) can include aqua (which makes everything pop more).
- While the seams seem to be matching so far in the middle, I am open with accepting the blocks centers and row seams to match – let it naturally fit together.
- Blocks are approx. 12″
I am really enjoying this project and the process. I am about a quarter of the way through and excited to see how it turns out. What hand sewing projects do you have at the moment??
