SEW Hip! Mystery Quilt – Skeleton Leaf


As you know, my self imposed

SEW Hip! Mystery Quilt challenge

is NOT to buy any new fabrics or products

for the quilt blocks.

This means that I have be creative

when SEW Hip! throws curve balls like

Aquasol at you.

What is Aquasol?


Well, according to Google it is;

a) a water/waste treatment company

b) a fertilizer

c) a vitamin

Of course,

if you type in Aquasol water-soluble fabric;

You will in fact discover that,

Aquasol is a fabric that dissolves leaving

only your embroidered stitches behind.

Nifty eh?




my challenge stands,

so I had to think of something else to make

for this block.

How did that go?



I tried to embroider a leaf but I got the colours

all wrong.

So…you haven’t made any leaves?

I have.

I crocheted some, and glued them onto

the SEW Hip! Quilt block.

You sound annoyed with yourself?


I am a little,

I really want to stick to my ‘use what I’ve got’ challenge,

but I also want a fabulous quilt.

So there you have it,


my last minute SEW Hip! Skeleton Leaf quilt block.

    I would have been stumped by the aquasol reference too, Heidi! I like your inventiveness and addint crochet to your quilt is very ‘you’!!

    I’m still going “wha?” over the Aquasol product…interesting. Your crochet leaves look great on the quilt blocks! xJosie

    …although I said I wouldn’t buy new materials, I am very tempted by the Aquasol. Dissolving fabric has got to be fun, right?!

    Hi – Love the crocheted leaves – do you have a pattern for them or an approximation? I think I can figure it out if you don’t. Very creative…I thank you!
