My Next Hand Piecing Project

I love having handwork waiting for me when I want to sit and slow stitch.  I've learned that hand piecing is my favorite slow stitch past-time so I started a pillow size double wedding ring hand stitching project.

I'll need 4 of these blocks - each finishes at 10'' x 10''.

The fabric I'm using is all scraps from my tiny piecing project.  My first block is done but I think that dark purple really stands out (and not in a good way!)   I need to make sure I incorporate it quite of dark purple in the other blocks to balance things or unpick and insert another square in this first block..

I'm very happy to have a project at the ready when I want to sit and stitch!

Have a wonderful day! Patty


  1. Having hand work ready for those moments when you can sit and stitch is a great idea. What are you thinking about the dark purple now?

  2. This really looks nice, very convincing for us non-hand-sewing-people to try this out.

  3. Looks really good. Always good to mhave hand stitching for those quiet moments in life.


Thanks for visiting Elm Street Quilts. Looking forward to hearing from you!
