This summer, I had the absolute pleasure to take a class from Chawne Kimber where I absolutely fell in love with tiny piecing.
My technique is to sew together strips of fabric roughly 6'' wide and then subcut them down into my chosen width.
Earlier this month I shared two of the blocks I made from 1'' wide strips. Making a square spiral was a lot of fun and I love the way it looks from the front and especially from the back!
My quilt top is assembled and I am now in the process of densely quilting with straight-ish lines. On the left of this photo, they quilting lines are 1/4'' apart. On the right of this photo, they are 1/2'' apart.
Given that the fabric stripes are 1/8'' apart, I'm thinking the quilting needs to get that dense as well. Those colorful spirals also hold soooooooooo much fabric that the quilting needs to be dense enough to support it.
But first, I've got a million threads to bury before I go back for another round of stitching.
Have a wonderful day!
