Sewing Confrontations Blog Series

Starting Nov. 2 Jess at Quilty Habit is hosting a month long blog series 'Sewing Confrontations' where she has challenged a bunch of us to get out of our comfort zone and try something new. 

Kickoff: Friday, Nov. 2: Jess at Quilty Habit - Accurate Cutting
Nov. 9: Rebecca at Sew Festive Handmade - The 1/4 Inch Seam
Nov. 16: Val at PinkPlease! - Ruffles
Nov. 23: Rachel at Let's Begin Sewing... - English Paper Piecing

Nov. 30: DOUBLE POST: Katie at Swim, Bike, Quilt - Sewing with Knits
Kristina at Ornamental Confectionary - Making Pants
*AND link up at Quilty Habit!

I have been looking at English Paper Piecing (EPP) projects all over blogland and always wanted to make something using hexies. For a number of reasons  I have been putting it off and it was time to get over the inertia and give it a try. 

Be sure to check back here starting next week. Each week you will learn a new skill and follow along with the blogger's personal challenge. You will also have a chance to discuss your own personal challenges on projects you've tried. This will be followed by a linky on Nov. 30 where you will be able to link to your own sewing confrontation projects and win some free fabric. 

I hope you are looking forward to this, I know I am. It will be a great opportunity to learn new skills.
