This quilt was an excuse to improve my hand sewing skills and try out 25 different fabric manipulations. Often fabric manipulations look hard to do but in fact they are quite straightforward. The manipulations on this quilt are 5″ square. That satisfies my 2 main criteria: the piece, while small, it’s large enough to learn the technique and it’s quick to make too.
I have been asked many times how the quilt will withstand wear. I made this quilt in 2012 or 2013 and it’s still in good shape. I had it on a wall for a couple of years, and it’s been on a couch since I took it down. It survived a transcontinental move.
It’s true, I don’t handle it much and I haven’t washed it either.
You can see for yourself on the video that the fabric manipulations are still in very good condition.
This quilt is perfect as a fidget quilt.
