Several months ago, we announced on Facebook that we were looking for QM readers to work on a one-time project for us. It’s been my pleasure to work with the eight women we selected as the Back to School Sewing Team. I’m happy to introduce them to you this week during the QM Back to School Party.
Today I’m pleased to introduce Pat Szymanski from Exeter, New Hampshire.
Pat sewed with Knick Knack fabrics by Karen Combs for Troy Riverwoods Collection. Here is Pat’s finished quilt.
I love the unexpected addition of aqua to the black, red and white color scheme. I could take this one home!
Pat penned a few thoughts for QP readers:
Working with Quiltmaker and the Back to School team has been sew much fun!
We introduced ourselves on Facebook, posted pictures as our fabrics arrived, and chatted up a storm. Our group had a wonderful time admiring the yummy fabrics, posting our works-in-progress, and ultimately revealing the births of our lovely Frame by Frame quilts.
I was the last quilter to have my QM package arrive. Then I had a very untimely family emergency, which kept me away from my sewing machine for a week. Yikes!!! The deadline was approaching and time was quickly running out!
My best tip for this project would be to make sure that you label your fabrics #1–#8. Labeling beforehand will help you avoid confusion and will be a real time saver as you piece the rows.
If you wish, download and print a free chart to help you keep track of your fabrics. Download QM FramebyFrame-chart.
Frame by Frame sews together quickly and is a great go-to pattern when you’re in a time crunch for a fun quilty gift!
On behalf of Quiltmaker and Troy Riverwoods Collection, I’d like to extend a sincere thank you to Pat Szymanski for a job well done. We really appreciate you!
