After a full days work yesterday, I needed a few minutes of quiet “me time” late in the evening. I sat down to do a little hand piecing and my mind started to wander a bit. My mind drifted back to memories of my Grandma hand piecing and quilting. I thought about my Great Aunt who still hand pieces and hand quilts. I thought about both of my Aunts who are both avid quilters – both hand and machine.
As I sat stitching and thinking in this quiet and peaceful time, I happened to think about some older patterns that I had produced awhile ago, specifically for those people that enjoy hand piecing or smaller type projects that can be completed in a day by machine. I thought I would share one of those out of print pattern with you today and send you many wishes for a little quiet, peaceful time in your day. Pick up a needle and thread and practice your hand piecing or learn a new technique and try your talents at hand piecing.

Also, I’ve converted a set of instructions that I included with each of these patterns. It’s a very simple set of General Instructions for Hand Piecing, Applique & Quilting. The following file is also in PDF format, click on the link to download it.
And for those of you new to my blog, we do have a special page on our website that is dedicate to free pattens that we offer. Almost all the free patterns there were past patterns that have now been discontinued. I welcome you to use those patterns, enjoy them and share them with friends and family.
