PQ 14.5 – Sew Not a Square

First of all I’d like to thank Kim and Trish for all of the work they put in to a wonderful challenge for all of us to enjoy and stretch our creativity! Trish has come up with another fun prompt for this week’s challenge. Make something that is considered to be a quilt (multi layers, quilted, etc) with no squares to be found in the project.

I have actually managed to complete projects for every one of the Challenges this year 😃

For me this was a fun one because I have become addicted to EPP and really enjoying the hand work.

I chose some fun scraps from my 2 1/2” squares box, stabilized them with iron on stabilizer, and then spent a pleasant few hours making my hexies. Then I joined the hexies into two Gramma’s Garden type blocks. The blocks were joined back to back and then I started stitching all around the outside of the hexies with a blanket stitch, adding a few extra stitches in judicious places to have my project take the shape I wanted.

Here you have it:

My little flower shaped basket fits perfectly by my machine to keep my clips off my sewing table.

I have been fondling fabric and creating things with fabric and fiber for as long as I can remember. My children had homemade clothes, blankets, canning and quilts most of their lives. Now I create goodies to share! Hope you enjoy viewing them as much as I enjoy making them! When I am not creating with fiber or fabric I keep busy with Dear Heart, kids, grandkids, great grandkids.
