Learn to Hand Piece
I watched Jane Austen’s Writing Table Quilts DVD for the first time in about three years and realized that, even though the hand piecing lesson is pre-Inklingo and made for Quilted Diamonds, it is a perfect introduction to hand piecing for quilters who have not hand pieced before because they thought the preparation was too tedious.
The close-up stitching and pressing are both done on a diamond that is very similar to LeMoyne Star in the free Inklingo collection. This CD/DVD set is an unbelievable value while the sale lasts. Enjoy.
If you love hand piecing but don’t like the prep work, you need to try Inklingo. There’s even a free collection to get you started.
