71 - FREE the Piecing
I stitched this little house base together using a sewing machine and a free piecing technique I learned way back from Tonya. Free piecing is really just a carefree, non measured approach to patchwork. It undoes some of the stress associated with it. Mostly it is be done with a machine.

Initially I used the technique to create color blankets of similar colors when I didn't have enough. Mending similar color patches into larger usable pieces.
