DQ June 2012 Challenge: All Squares

"....regrets I have a few, but then again too few to mention.." My Way - Frank Sinatra

This Cushion Covers started as a mistake. One lady wants me to make quilt for her daughter something in girly colors. So, I thought of doing 16 patch blocks like the one I saw on the web

So I cut few jelly rolls and it turned out the block is just too small for the big quilt that I plan. Luckily I only cut few pieces  as trial. 

Now, what do I do with this cute tow 16 patch blocks? and then I remember the June challenge at Desi Quilters, a FB group where I belong. The RULE was make any quilt with only SQUARES.So why not use this one as a Cushion Covers..and I found a scrap green matching fabric here it entry for the June Challenge:

So, here's my monsoon cushion covers, just like one of my fellow DQ said:). 

Until then...Happy Quilting

Fabric Flower Tutorial from Flying Geese remnants

I hate to throw away even a lil bit if fabric scraps. Yesterday after making one star block, there are lots of remnants from the  flying geese blocks. So, here what I do.

  1. Pick up 5 or 6 triangles. Fold them and sew on the side.

  1. Turn around, poke to take out the corner as much as you can, and make a string of the new folded triangle by hand sewing it using a running stitch. One TIP: Leave around 1.5” of thread on the knot. Sew away until all 6 are strung nicely and evenly.

  1. The pull slowly and adjust the flower. Pull it tight and tie the thread nicely.

  1. Now, take out one button (I love the fabric cover button) and sew in place.

  1. At the back, take a small piece of felt, cut it round and glue in place and then attach the pin or hair pin, according to your fancy. more wasted fabric remnants ;)

Until then...Happy Sewing
