SYS 2015 - Tutorial 4, Pixel quilt

Let's get back to our sewing machine friends!!!

This amazing fourth tutorial is brought you by the great Susan (theboredzombie).

This is the ultimate tutorial if you are interested in making any design or object with this technique.
Susan describes all the steps of the process: from which images to choose, how to make the pattern, how to calculate the fabric requirements and how to assemble your project!
As a specific object, she also guides us step by step in the construction of a wonderful bag!!

The pdf (links below) contains instructions, pattern and additional links to resources that can help you planning on your own designs. Make sure to read the full tutorial before start stitching because there are several tips and tricks that may help you along the way!

The link up for SYS2015 is still open for your Syndrome blocks, FPP projects, free motion quilting/tangle stitches pieces and crochet projects!
You can link also your pixel projects, and next week I will tell you more about the prize for this month and what kind of projects are accepted to enter for the prize.

And speaking of prizes...
Today I was supposed to draw a winner for last month giveaway...
however the are NO new entries to draw from :( :( :( :(
neither crochet projects, nor previous projects entered in the past month :( :( :( :(
Oh, well... I guess that the winner is me since the prize is going back in my stash ;) :)

All the information about the series (as well as all the previously published tutorials) will be available at
the SYS 2015 page.

If you have any question about the series, don't hesitate to contact me via email or add a comment here on my blog (and if you want an answer, make sure you are not a no-reply blogger!).

So now let's go and Stretch Our Skills!!! :)

Until next time
Happy stitching!!


  1. I had a tough time choosing a design, but I think I found something not too ambitious :)

    1. I know what you mean! Picking a design is the hardest part!
      I am looking forward to see your project!!

  2. This is so helpful and someday I will get the nerve to try this! Thanks!

  3. Although I subscribed to your email have not been able to try out anything. Too manythings on hand I guess. But I enjoyed the way you did fmq on the runner and I think I will incorporate it as a border when I finish a wall quilt I am working on. I want to trythe pixel quilt. Just did a center piece for a block but I might learn more here.


Thanks for stopping by! I would love to hear from you!
Please share your thoughts on my projects with me!
