Way back in August, I went on our guild’s sewing retreat for the weekend. We were given lots of little freebies, including a tiny little pattern for foundation piecing this tulip, and the bits to turn it into a badge. Some guild members sewed them up and started wearing them straight away, indeed several of them were made using some of my little scraps.
Unpacking from the move, I rediscovered the pattern. As I had never tried this kind of foundation piecing (only the string quilt kind for my New House Quilt) I thought I would give it a go. I thought it was kind of sweet.
Theoretically, it is 2.5″ square, but as you can see, mine is not very square, and the binding (and everything else) is very sloppy. Regardless, it was fun trying a new skill – I can see while some people are drawn to the accuracy of foundation piecing.
Have you tried your hand at a new skill lately?
