    4 sister challenge

    My 3 sisters (and sometimes a sister in law) get together once or twice a year for our Sisters Sewing Soiree. Also knows as our TBASSSS or The B***** and S***** Sister Sewing Soiree. We have a wonderful time sewing and chatting and laughing. Kind of like weeklong slumber party with your best friends.

    Last year we found a fabric that none of us would have purchased on our own. It became our Challenge fabric. We each bought a panel to design something with. Below are pictures of the original fabric, as well as a picture of the various projects. We are looking forward to choosing our challenge project for the next year.

    We had such fun doing this. Let us know what your favorite project is.

    This is our original fabric. Not one any of us would normally purchase.

    This Sister #1, who chose to cut her fabric into strips and make a basket. First pic is an inside view, and a front view is next. Beautifully done.

    Wow, I am having a hard time picking a favorite. You all had some creative uses of the focus fabric. I hope I don't offend, but, I love the fabric bowl and the pillow.

    They are all beautiful and I'd be hard pressed to pick a favorite. It sounds like a lot of fun - keep it up!
