SYS 2015 - Concluding remarks on pixel quilts

At the beginning of the month Susan shared an amazing tutorial for a pixel bag to stretch your skills in stitching small squares :).
You can find the tutorial on the SYS2015 page!

So have you been enjoying this technique?
I absolutely love it! And I already planned a couple of future project that will use this approach.
I will go down to 1'' square UNfinished (meaning 0.5'' finished! yes! isn't it crazy!?! stay tuned to see how it turns out) ;)

So get your squares together and add YOUR projects to the link party!!

Remember that in this link party only projects belonging to the SYS2015 series should be added 
(I reserve the right to delete any non compliant link). 
This link party will be open all year long and you can add as many finished projects as you want! 
The same link party will be shown on the SYS2015 page.
Each link will give you a chance to win one of the monthly prizes.

For this month in order to be eligible for prizes, you are asked to make a pixel project of any size and any design!

For the first entry, you can enter the piece in the stage of a finished top piece (so just with all your squares assembled). For a second entry, you can enter a completed object: it can be a bag (as suggested in the tutorial) or any other object. For example you can use Janeen's tutorial to turn your pixel project into a pillow, or the tutorial I suggested to turn it into a fabric box!). 

Get creative and have fun!!

You can still link up blocks and projects from the Foundation Paper Piecing, Quilting and Crochet tutorials!!
For rules about what will be accepted in those cases, please refer to this previous post (Tutorial 1)this other post (Tutorial 2) and this other post (Tutorial 3).

This month the prize is offered by me and it is...

Mystery! Surprise ;)
It will be something related to crafts that we did or we will do in the series. 
Things that the winner could put to good use!! 

I will draw a winner (using on June 3rd between all the new entries in the link party. 
International participants are welcome!!
