Another one

bites the dust.  All this hand sewing means taking frequent breaks to stretch my hands and fingers.  Surprisingly it is my left hand that feels it the most, I think because of the gripping of the fabric while I sew.  I’ve been trying to concentrate on not holding the fabric so tightly and this seems to be working.


I5 – Maria’s Majesty Variation 1

pieced and applique

Another lovely fabric from The Adelaide Collection by Michelle Hill.


  1. Working with such small pieces is difficult on your hands. This block is so pretty.

  2. I like this one a lot. It's fun to see all the combinations of shapes come together.

  3. It is beautiful. 4484 pieces so far - what an achievement.

  4. Indeed a lovely fabric, and you've placed the pieces so well.
