Patchwork Scarf – Happy Birthday, Mom!

Thursday, January 24, 2013 0 No tags Permalink

One of the projects I was planning for Christmas didn’t get done…a patchwork scarf for Mom. Good thing her birthday is in January!

So, instead of doing the easy thing and buying a block of 5×5 charms already cut out, I instead purchased fat quarters and cut my own 5×5 charms.

The pieces were laid out two by two so I could decide the order, then each duo was sewn together with a 1/4 seam. Then the duos were sewn together in a long strip, making sure everything lined up. I only had to seam-rip two of them out for bad alignment. Not bad.

After the whole set was sewn together and the seams were pressed, I cut the flannel backing, sewed that and turned it, and then did the edge stitching around the final product.

I am sad that it didn’t turn out the way I had envisioned it would 🙁 Mom can always use it as a table runner, I guess.


Anyhow, Happy Birthday, Mom! I love you!
