Inspiring Quilters, Stitch by Stitch
This mission has been revised. For the grand finale, you will have the choice of either doing a sweatshirt jacket/cardigan or a quilted hug. And for any of you who live in a warmer climate, where one of these is not needed, then it will be perfectly acceptable for you to donate it to someone in need.
There are some wonderful examples of these on Pinterest and Facebook, so let your creative juices flow. If you have any questions, please let me know.
P.S. You will not be posting pictures of this mission, as your Secret Santa sister will post the picture when she receives it in December.
Kathy, you've outdone yourself on this one!!
Oh I love it! I have seen some really spectacular sweatshirt jackets and a excited to make one.
I think I've found the pattern, but need to look for the right color mix. My last try at this is still sitting on a shelf. I've found a pattern for crazy blocks that I plan to sew together into "fabric" which I can then pin to sweatshirt and then quilt. What technique do you all use?!!!
Melanie, I've seen several techniques...before applique, always prewash both shirt and fabrics. At a quiltshow in Tx, l saw a gorgeous one for little girl all covered in appliques of sweet girlie prints in pastels in crazy quilting ; then applique of characters in deep brights over that. Didn't look stiff, so no fuseables. Lots of embroidery and a few beads & sequins. I personally prefer denym jackets ( worn looking from thrift store) and embellished with hand embroidery in heavy threads & light yarns. Not sure what l'll do for this mission...still wracking my brain over those golf tees,lol!
I’m sure you will have a great idea. Too bad I can only post one - they are so cute...and crazy!
