PJ's in the Hoop
Hoop sizes 5” x 7” to 9.5” x 14”
What happens when 9 sets of 9 in-the-hoop quilt blocks team up with 9 fabrics laid out in a 9x9 sudoku grid? The Qui-zzle! (quilt + puzzle = qui-zzle!) Sudoku lovers, this one’s for you! This design pack, for the 5x7 hoop, begins with solving a 9x9 sudoku puzzle (solution also included!) and then assigning fabrics to the numbers in the puzzle. This process creates the fabric layout for the project, which consists of 9 large blocks. Each of the 9 blocks is formed with 3 rows of 3 smaller blocks created and joined in the hoop. Each row of 3 small blocks is then sewed to its 2 companion rows to create each large block. (The 9 large blocks are then sewed together and the qui-zzle is ready to be finished, as a wall hanging (finished size 40”x40”) or table cover or, with additional borders and batting added, as a bed or lap quilt. Another fun possibility: use them as the tops of 9 separate pillows to create an intriguing floor puzzle! Bottom line? Grab 9 different fat quarters (plus 3 more for the borders), enjoy the post-holiday rush, and settle in for a fun, fascinating, and unique project! The 9 small blocks, each with its own quilting motif, are created by hooping muslin and layering thin batting along with the front fabric and border fabric.)
