Week 1: Test block for #modernfanssa •Made with WILD scrap fabric, but I learned a lot about sewing curves on this first go around and tested that my templates are accurate. Ready to start sewing with the real deal for week 2! 🌟

Today I whipped up a lap quilt for a friend’s son. He has high functioning autism and will use this quilt at school as a calming tool. I hope he has a fabulous 4th grade year! 💙

In June, at the start of the #kingfisherstitchalong, I planned to machine appliqué my hexie flowers to the background diamonds, but this week I chose hand appliqué instead. I’m so happy with the result. I realized I don’t have a deadline for this quilt, so why rush the enjoyable experience of hand-stitching?
