New piece step by step

When I was teaching at the quilt symposium in Jan I signed up to take part in the CanTeen Bandanna Challenge. CanTeen is a support organisation for teenagers living with cancer, The challenge is a fundraiser for this great group of people.
We could choose a bandanna and then create a small quilt which will go on show and be sold.
I thought it would be a fun project to take pictures along the way and post the stages of creating this piece on the blog, so here goes, lets hope I remember to take the pictures!
I am going to applique a face on top of the hands, it is about the many hands that are involved with the care of sick people. I think it will be called Hands of Care.

Original Bandanna, cut and stitched to calico

Fabrics to apply on top, Kaffe and Tula of course!

Design of face to be applied.

eyes on first

Face ready to be cut out

Main fabric on face on, highlights, nose, eyebrows and lips go on top.


  1. This is going to be good ! I love that fabric for the face....How will the fundraiser be done? :)

  2. What a cool idea. I was going to sew my bandannas together to make cushion covers.
