I've been playing with a collection of HST that I made using scraps of my batiks fabrics.
This mini is 9 1/2" square. I did a whole series of straight lines using my walking foot, the distance between them varies but might be described as matchstick quilting.
The finished pieces has such great texture and stability. I just used a normal piece of batting so it is surprising how much stability it has.
I sewed around the edge of the piece before I started to stabilize and to avoid distortion that tight quilting can bring.
Haven't decided if this is for me or a gift!
I'd be happy to write this one up as a quick tutorial - please let me know if you are interested.
