Several months ago, we announced on Facebook that we were looking for QM readers to work on a one-time project for us. We got a great response, and it’s been my pleasure to work with the six women we selected as the Back to School Sewing Team. I’m happy to introduce them to you, one each day, as part of the QM Back to School Party.
Pat sewed with Saturday Afternoon fabrics by Jane Spolar for Northcott.
Pat shares about her Back to School sewing experience.
Working with the “Back to School Party” sewing team was truly a wonderful experience! We shared our progress within a special group we formed on Facebook. By doing this our team enjoyed making warm friendships that we plan to continue…and we’re already brainstorming our next group project!
I found Dozens of Daisies to be a fun and easy pattern to follow. One challenge that I faced was not with the pattern, but working with the first border fabric. The strips have a wonky, wavy flow going on which made it tricky to piece. After some fidgeting I decided to approach it as I would an appliqued piece and then I was able to blend in the seam within the flow of the waves.
Every conversation with Pat has been a delight. She’s one of those people it’s just a pure pleasure to know. Many thanks from QM to Pat for her work on this project.
