Hedgehog Progress

I absolutely love Elizabeth Hartman’s patterns! They perfectly fit my preferred style of sewing: beautiful, complicated, but not too fiddly with special techniques.

So many pieces!

But, so many pieces! This is 185 pieces right here. Which doesn’t seem possible, but I counted twice. Unlike the unicorn pillows, I labeled the piles which made a huge difference when finding the right pieces to sew. Label your piles!

The sew up took a few sessions, but was fairly straightforward. I felt that I could have done a little better on the match-ups to keep everything perfectly accurate, but overall I’m pretty pleased with the results.

I’m working on this project as part of the UFO Challenge for the Boulder Modern Quilt Guild. This project has been in the works for years and the fabric is at least 2 to 3 years old. I’m making this for a specific purpose to decorate the house. I’ll show pictures soon of the spot it’s going to live in.
