Be kind to yourself!
Allow yourself to enjoy a hand-sewing experience!
I used to think that because hand sewing requires more time than machine sewing, it is something that I can enjoy only in vacation!
But lately I came to the conclusion that this is such a wrong perception - my perception!
In times like the one we are going through right now, we need more than ever time for ourselves, to do things that we enjoy most.
And hand sewing allows you to spoil yourself; enjoy music or an audiobook while sewing, sew in the garden, in the sun or under a tree...
In the winter, there is nothing more relaxing than staying wrapped in a quilt and sew some patches together.
My new pattern allows you to do this and much more...
You ready? This is not a hexagon quilt!
Because you probably already have a few Grandmother's Flower Garden quilts...
One design. Countless Variations.
English paper piecing - an easy way to sew intricate designs
Many quilters avoid piecing blocks with Y seams, but if you use the English paper piecing technique, you can sew ANY design accurately and easily!
Some designs are so simple, but your choice of fabric takes it to the next level!
This is the main fabric - a rainbow striped fabric (Timeless Treasures).
One shape- different size, different fabrics and voila...
A perfectly sewn quilt top
The top measures 28'' x 30'', edge of big triangle about 7''.
Adding borders to EPP piece
I don't have too much EPP experience, so this was the first time when I needed to add borders to a EPP piece. I am so glad I found a quick and easy way to do this!
Free motion quilting feathers...
The triangle is an excellent shape for sewing feathers on...

Imagine all the designs that you could be able to create with different fabrics!
For a few fabrics I generated on computer images of the blocks, to give you an idea about the look of the designs you could achieve.
The sky is the limit!
Do you want a quicker project? I thought so!
Here is my answer.
It's not only a quicker project, it's a DIFFERENT project!
I will show you how to use an ombre fabric like this one (Gelato Ombre) to create the best look for your project.
A few tricks are involved!
I finished my piece as a 20'' x 21.5'' pillow.
For a pillow, this grid quilting done with the walking foot is the quickest and easiest option, great for beginners.
