SYS 2015 - Tutorial 6, Applique (and flash giveaway)!

Get your sewing machine, ironing board, scissors and thread ready, because here is our next tutorial!

The sixth tutorial of the series is brought you by the amazing Kristel (wipgirl).

This is a super cool fabric postcard, with a quote from the sci-fi movie "Serenity", continuation of the TV series "Firefly"!!

The pdf (links below) contains detailed instructions on how to create that beautiful piece!!

The link up for SYS2015 is still open for your Syndrome blocks, FPP projects, free motion quilting/tangle stitches pieces, crochet projects and pixel quilts!

Next week there will be more details on what to link to win our monthly prizes...

And speaking of prizes...

Three things:
  1. There were no new entries since last month, so no winner for Karen's prize :(
  2. For the last couple of weeks I asked your opinion on this series (filling out the survey at this link) and I received few comments that I will address next week!
    If you didn't enter your comments, the survey is still open...
    To encourage people to make this fun project, Kristel is offering not one, but TWO kits with everything you need to make your own cool postcard!!
    In order to be eligible to win, post a comment below telling me if you are a fan of sci-fi and, if so, which is your favorite series/movie! If you are not a sci-fi fan, you can tell me that too, we won't hold it against you :)

    ETA: comments are moderated and they need my approval. So if you don't see your comment immediately don't worry! It may take me few hours to get back to you but I will, promise!!!

    I will draw TWO winners on July 4th, 10 a.m. EST.
    If you are a no-reply blogger and I cannot get in touch with you I will simply draw another winner... so if you are not sure, just leave your email address in the comment!
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!!
