Sewing, one step at a time

English Paper Piecing
Laurel 2 and Laurel 3
Album quilt, Baltimore, Maryland, 1851
Herbert F. Johnson Museum of Art, Cornell University
This summer I decided to put more effort into sewing. 
With scrap fabric from the bins, I'm hand sewing English paper pieced hexagons into...I'm not exactly sure what, at least a pillow, maybe a quilt? I've been looking at pictures of antique Baltimore album quilts. I admire the bold and intricate design of each block. A project to think about when I finish my hexagons, maybe.
 I'm also sewing my third Laurel dress. I'm having fun adding different details like homemade bias tape and applique collars.
