A dynamic member of the Quilt Guild, Susan Teece of Bent Pin Creations is spearheading a project to create a new Guild banner to reflect the varied techniques the members are exploring. She gave everyone who signed up a focus fabric to be used in a recognizable amount.
I volunteered to do the letter O, and here’s my block. The focus fabric is at the top.
A visit to Susan’s website shows her exciting use of holes. Because this block has to be pieced and sandwiched with batting and backing, it wasn’t feasible to make a hole all the way through, but those grommets gone wild I told you about here are brought to play their part. I had accepted the challenge before the Sewing Show and only thought of using a grommet when I actually set out to create the block, it wasn’t an aha moment while I was at the show.
