The 2019 design theme is small piecing. You have probably noticed some modern quilters using small piecing in recent years. While it can be hard to define, let’s say that small piecing would incorporate fabric pieces that are smaller than 1” in either width or length. So you might picture long, skinny strips, or little tiny squares, for example. The small piecing can be improvisationally pieced, traditionally pieced or foundation pieced. It’s up to you. Remember, the quilt doesn’t need to be exclusively small piecing. Small piecing must be an integral part of the design but you can incorporate other modern design elements, such as negative space, to make the challenge more approachable.
