Mora is the only quilt I have hand pieced. I started her in June, 2018. She is 88″ wide x 92″ long, and has about 3000 diamonds pieces.
There are 39 stars, each has 60 diamonds.
Although the black & white fabric is busy, I love that fabric (Terrie Mangat design) and could not resist using it to connect the stars. I tempered it a bit with solid black diamonds.
It was a long process, but not at all painful. It was nice to always have a small, lap-size project whenever I was sitting still, which I don’t do well. I started it prior to our 2 week Alaskan cruise because I thought I would be bored. I was NOT bored, but still glad to have a project.
I used a design board w/ stylus for the quilt design. It’s very dense, and therefore holds the handpiecing together nicely.
It’s hard to get a nice photo of this. But this is good enough! I’ll be starting another hand pieced project before too long. It’s just nice to have one around.
Look out, Sports Illustrated!
