How to Hand Piece a Kaleidoscope Star – 2

Part 2 of our little hand piecing movie is ready, and it looks great “full screen.”


Perfect Intersections Every Time!

In only 4 minutes, you will see how you can have perfect intersections by:

  • “circling the intersection”
  • pressing the seam allowances around the center
    (clockwise or counterclockwise)

Thank you very much for the lovely comments on Part 1.

If you have arrived here first, this is what you have been missing:

Monkey says these two little movies show you everything you need to know to start hand piecing stars in only ten minutes (6 + 4)! Just watch! Very simple.

With this new camera setup, you can see what I see when I am hand piecing. There is no “voiceover,” so you don’t need to turn on your speakers, but if you do, you will hear Vadim Chaimovich playing Haydn’s Sonata No. 12 in G Major from MusOpen.

You can also search the blog archives for messages about fussy cutting, hand piecing, or any other topic. There is a Search box above the header.

If you know anyone who would like to have an exciting portable project, please let them know about our little movies.

I am also using this camera setup for machine piecing with Inklingo, so stay tuned! (That means subscribe, eh? Right sidebar.)

Do you know what I would like to be doing right now?

Thank you for visiting.

  1. I’m glad you watched it full screen, Cathi. That is the benefit of HD cameras. Once I figure out how to do it, everything is clearer.
    Let me know what fabric you choose, okay? I am always on the look-out for suitable ones.

  2. Love the effect of the kaleidoscope stars so much that I think I’ll just have to stop what I’m working on and find a piece of fabric that will work well and give that effect!
    The video is incredibly clear, even at full screen! Beautiful!!

  3. Thank you so much for the video. You so clearly demonstrated one of my biggest problems – the joining of the two halves without the dreaded hole in the middle. Thank you again so very much! The only thing keeping me from going right to my printer is the need for a new ink cartridge. That will have to wait until the next paycheck but then I will be wonderfully busy sewing my Inklingo printed pieces.
