WIP Wednesday - Harmony Hand Pieced QAL

It’s time for the annual hand pieced QAL hosted by Patty @ Elm Street Quilts and Kristin @ Simple Handmade Everyday.  You’ll need to get a copy of the Harmony pattern, but the QAL just started this week, so there’s plenty of time to join in.

I’ll be using Kona Grapemist for the background, along with Lemon, Chartreuse, and Bright Pink.  I’m making the wall hanging so there’s just one block to make this week. 

I use a Turtles chocolate tin to hold my hand sewing tools.  I like a container with sides so I can have it on my lap while I’m stretched out on the sofa - that way I don’t lose things between the cushions. LOL

I think I’m going to re-make this square-in-a-square block using the templates rather than the stitch and flip method.  I may not have marked my stitching lines accurately as my block is about 1/16 inch off on two sides.


  1. I like repurposing chocolate tins, but I never thought to keep one on my lap. Good Idea!

  2. I am always impressed by their hand pieced quilt alongs. It will be fun to follow along with your version!

  3. Looking good! I admire you for hand sewing!! To me, that's torture and painful! But you do such a lovely job!

  4. I love repurposed tins for all my sewing notions, old found at thrift stores, and new!
