Ship Ahoy! – Block 2

Piecing by hand

Piecing by hand seems a strange project in this mad computer driven machine age.  Why would any person decide to piece by hand? Why start a project where you don’t need a machine? Is it possible to quilt entirely by hand?

This second block in the “Through the eyes of Cy” quilt introduces hand piecing as a technique. The block builds on the patterns of block one, reinforcing piecing HST.
