Piecing on the ironing board is an old way of working. As is piecing on the machine. Flipping to the back and tacking down seams or opening them and stitching down the quarter inch flap is new.
I am interested to see where this intersection of old (machine-work) and new (hand-stitching) will take me. For years, I have been wondering what a more lively synthesis of the two might look like.
Not sure batting will be involved, as I like the light shining through.
