At our guild meeting in May we tore a photo from a random magazine at a set time. Our challenge was to return in September with a quilt any size that was not any larger than 24' x 24' or sewn piece using the colors from the photo.
Here is my photo!
Must say, these colors were OK
but I was not a fan.
My personal challenge was not to add any purchased fabric.
Plus to try a new technique!
Since I was on a hexie kick, I was noticing this unusual technique on the web.
Where you glue your basted hexie's and quilt them in a very linear way.
Placement is VERY important!
The stitching is pretty self explanatory.
However not for me.
I did have to do some ripping!
What I learned:
Test iron-- silky poly material melts!
Pleather is not color fast ---it runs!
Stay alert when sewing those straight lines-
I created my own unique grid at first!
There were so many participants in the challenge so it was fun to see the
very imaginative & creative pieces that came in.
And to my surprise this little piece
The first time I saw this technique was on Nicole's blog at Modern Hand Craft and then on Kelly's blog at Pink A Dot Quilts.
Check them out-both are very talented!
Don't you love the ribbons?
It was such a clever idea to use the
gross grain and zippers!
Till We Quilt Again,
