I’ve Got a Notion

Last year I signed up for Barnswallow’s Quilt Challenge 2015 – “I’ve Got a Notion”.  The challenge was to create a 3D notion, using the fabrics given.  2014 275At the time, we were traveling a lot and I was hand stitching hexi’s while sitting in the passenger seat of a car.  Even though I had everything in a ziplock bag, it was time consuming to stop, put the needle down and rethread it.  I would have to dig for the thread, for the scissors.

The page protectors are magnetized so I was able to put down the needle whenever I desired without loosing it. I was also pleased to go through almost a dozen airport security terminals without any problem.

I was thrilled to receive 1st place (Viewer’s Choice) at the 2015 Barnswallow Quilt Show.
