A few posts ago I mentioned I had signed up with the IFQ and that they had an extensive program which anyone could participate in. The IFQ leaves it to the individual how involved they want to be. They have swaps, chatrooms, BOMs, Christmas programs, and so on. Have a look at their site by clicking on their logo which you will find upper left sidebar or the link above. I thought I would show you what I made in one of the programs offered called FOLDED STAR.
This pillow is a small 14" version with a single folded star in the centre. The pattern the IFQ supplied was for a larger 16" pillow with 4 folded stars in the centre. I changed the pattern slightly by adding the triangles in the corners to give the pillow a balanced look because I had only one folded star. This pillow was made with my car in mind. Another program I signed on for is an ongoing block swap. I will show you those blocks in the future when I have more as I've just recently signed up. That particular block swap you start by sending your partner a 4.5" square and she makes the actual block and sends it back to you. Everyone makes the same block pattern which is easy enough for a beginner to sew. I hope I've piqued your interest in taking a look. You might like what you find there.
I entered a giveaway put on by lovely Leona and I won! I'll show everyone in a post when the prize arrives. Thank you , Leona, for sponsoring the giveaway and your generosity.
