Skill Builder 2014

I was quite fortunate this year to do some pattern testing for Alyssa at Pile O Fabric’s Skill Builder for 2014. I had previously done her 2013 Skill Builder which pretty much taught me how to free motion quilt, so I was mega excited to help out with testing some of the blocks for this years quilt.

The theme was “For the Love of Sewing!” and it had some great blocks and techniques. I think my favourite would have to be the folded quilt block using foundation paper piecing.

I love the quilt as you go method – and adding those sashing strips at the end was a great way to use up scraps of wadding! It is all made using Kona cotton and quilted using Aurifil thread.

oh and I cannot wait to do the 2015 one – I will be sewing along with one of my besties who lives on the other side of the country so we will be motivating each other on!
