A-Moozing - Project Quilting Season 10, Challenge 4

This is the fourth challenge of Season 10 
Project Quilting.

I'm excited to join in this challenge, "Pixel Play"

My entry:



Kim announces a challenge and you have one week to create something quilty.
Prizes can be won and it's a great way to meet new blogging friends.

The rules:

  1. Be inspired by digital pixelization.
  2. Projects need to be created during the week of the challenge (started on or after February 17, finished by February 24).
  3. Your project does not need to be a traditional quilt, but must meet at least one of these three requirements: include patchwork, include appliqué, have 3 layers stitched together by hand or machine.
  4. Incomplete or unfinished does not qualify. Every challenge piece must be a FINISHED project seen through from INCEPTION to COMPLETION during the challenge timeline.
  5. Link up by Sunday, February 24 at noon CST 

The challenge is something I've always been interested in and have made a few quilts using various techniques to create pixeled looks.

I have been involved in two blog hops (at the same time)
 and had a challenge for 
Island Batik this week.
All while trying to recover from surgery.
(I planned ahead, but my social media has been lacking - sorry)

So this was my chance to go small, and I mean small.

After all, it's been "mini" week here in the Sticks- this is #4.

marked a 3/4" grid on the non-fusible side of HeatnBond lightweight interfacing with a sharpie marker, cut out fabric in 3/4" squares, and made my design.  
Next, I laid out the fabrics on the fusible side, bonded them, and then started stitching 1/4" seams.  The interfacing helps to keep everything in place.
The seams have to be trimmed to 1/8" to reduce the bulk.
