A Handpieced Mini Quilt






Three months ago I signed up for Jo's #handpiecedminiswap on Instagram. I thought it might rejig my mojo. My partner, Fiona said she liked 1930s style fabrics in traditional designs. I EPP'd the central panel using 1 1/2" diamonds and Fresh Air by American Jane - using these fabrics took me well out of my comfort zone and I struggled at first to put them together. But in the end, I think I just succeeded.

I think you did a great job. It is so, so hard to make something out of fabrics that are way outside your comfort zone.

It is really lovely - well done for making an 'Annabella' quilt with fabrics you wouldn't usually use!
