Here Comes the Sun Blog Hop

Carol, from Just Let Me Quilt is hosting this blog hop. Here comes the Sun is a great title for a June blog hop. However, I live in Western Canada … on the WET coast! We haven’t seen much sun and it has been cool! On the news, they are calling it “June-uary.”

What is the challenge for “Here Comes The Sun”?

Sew something that has a summer theme like: sunglasses, beach items, sunny skies, and/or yellow colors. It can be a quilt, a bag, a toy, or whatever you want it to be.

So, I took a class from Elizabeth at Epida Studio and made this great window hanging with the sun inside the flower! (She has several different classes and is a fantastic teacher! I highly advise that you look into taking a class from her)

The technique to make this was totally new to me. It’s called Pojagi. It’s a technique that Elizabeth learned in Korea. The seams make it look like stained glass.

And here’s a picture of it in the window!

The fabrics are Island Batik … The yellow is Ogee Petal Sunshine, the flower petals are Floral Wonders and the background is Butterfly Blooms.

Once this was stitched together, it was a bit flimsy, so I sprayed it with Terial Magic and it was perfect!

Here’s the list of all of the blogs that are participating! Enjoy the sunny eye candy!

    • Hi Chris,
      It’s an easy finish … I would have finished during the class if I didn’t spend 1/2 hour un-sewing a few seams! 🙂 I look forward to seeing your finished squirrel! 🙂


  3. Pojagi looks to be a fun technique. I had always planned to make roman shades with a Frank Lloyd Wright kind of design. This looks to be a perfect in-between approach. Really love your project and it looks perfect in that window.

  4. Ohhh, so pretty especially as you showcased it in the window. I made a stained glass runner but yours is much better. Perfect, I’d say.

  6. You have taught me something new here. I too have never heard of Pojagi, but wow, what a fun technique. I love the idea of a window hanging and yours looks incredible coupled with your gorgeous window topper! I am going to have to check out Elizabeth’s classes.

  7. WOW, Gail! That is just gorgeous. My brother does make cut glass windows like this, and your quilt is spot on. What a fun technique. I’ll have to remember to check that out – maybe there’s an online class. {{Hugs}} ~smile~ Roseanne

  8. This is such an interesting and beautiful project. Thank you. I visited Epida Studio, and will return again. I recognized the flat felled seam similarity as an old fashion sewist. I think I will give this a try on a small project, just for fun. BTW the East coast of our beautiful land is lush with vegetation, a mixture of sun and rain the reason I guess, and although there have been a few warm days, it isn’t quite summer here yet. And the deer have eaten all of my hosta leaves. (just a side note)
