Hand piecing like Linda Franz

(Sorry to all whose Feedreaders send this twice, I had to edit it because I had gotten Linda Franz' surname wrong.)

Lately I went to the website of Linda Franz: Quilted Diamonds. I've seen a video about handpiecing where she was the guest, and I really like the look of hand pieced quilt blocks. I'm using her tips for my Midget Sampler Quilt.
I've made myself a pouch for my sewing stuff last year, I'll put up a picture of that soon, I think... because now with hand piecing, it's really handy.

Here are some pics of handpiecing on my balcony, today - it is sunny and warm outside :)

And here's another picture of my new apple computer!

Very cool!
I dont know who would be more upset with the computer/keyboard arrangement. Apple or Microsoft?

Congrats!

The keyboard..

..this is a special keyboard with an ergonomic design.
I write very fast on this keyboard, and very slow on other, "normal" keyboards. I guess I'll have to keep this until there are ergonomic apple keyboards available.

Your hand quilting is coming along nicely. I have Linda Franz's Quilted Diamond books and the DVD. Her instructions are very clear. Like your new computer.

Lovely block. Isn't Linda Franz so easy to understand! I'd never tried hand piecing til I saw her tutorial, but her step by step instructions made it achievable.

Link back

I wanted to let you know that I used your quilting photos in my latest blog post and provided a link back to your blog.

I'd have used some of my own pieces; but, I failed miserably in getting shots while the top was in progress.

I'm glad I found this site, it's given me a new blog to enjoy reading. :-)
