Actually A LOT of help. In 2013 when I was diagnosed with breast cancer, I started a hand sewing project to take with me while I waited for appointments and had chemo. This was the project. I worked on it for a while but fairly soon I developed neuropathy (numbness) in my hands and feet from the chemo. I stopped working on the "recovery project" and just let it gather dust. In 2014 when Judith's daughter, Ellen, came to visit, she asked for the project so she could have a calm hand project to take with her or do at home to veg out doing something meditative. When I went to the Crow Barn this past September, Ellen tried to give it back to me. She must have works hundreds of hours on this project taking teeny tiny stitched assembling all the pieces.
I told her she should keep it since she did 95% of the piece. Yesterday I received this in the mail.
It was the completed English Paper Pieced project with a sweet note.
It is made of squares and diamonds which finished out at 1.5"
Now I have to think of a way to quilt it. This is where you come in. Take your time, put on your thinking caps and suggest ways to quilt this. An example would be 1/2" rows of horizontal quilting. Please help me finish this beautiful project in a quilt pattern that is pleasant to look at and at the same time one that will stabilize the hand stitching.
