Sew It – Show It Challenge: Say What?


I'm happy to be participating in another fun Sew It – Show It Challenge, this time hosted by Joan from MooseStashQuilting.

Here's the list of today's participants:


This time we were challenged to make something with words or something that told a story. I created a small wool felt applique mat with a very simple message...BLOOM!

Like a lot of other people, I look forward to Spring when flowers start blooming. Sometimes we accelerate things by starting plants in pots. So I decided to grow the word "BLOOM" in some pots to kick Spring off right.

The mat measures 14" x 12" and is quick to stitch up. I made it from wool felt scraps I had in my stash, but you can make it in any colors you wish.

If you'd like to try, here's the link to the FREE pattern.

A note about my FREE patterns: No patterns will be listed as available on my blog after July 2023. (My patterns are currently hosted on server space that I will be discontinuing then.) So if there's anything currently listed that you might be interested in, download it now! After that point, I will still make some patterns available during these challenges, either via email or another method which I am still exploring.


And speaking of Spring blooms, how about some no-sew felt daffodils? The pattern for these lovelies comes from Lia Griffith.


I love to read your comments, and will reply to them all via email unless you are a NO REPLY BLOGGER.

Finally, be sure to visit everyone participating in this fun challenge!
