Pincushions

Pin Pals!

More Pincushions! Kimberly Jolly from Fat Quarter Shop did an interview with Carrie Nelson and they talked about her obsession with pincushions that led to her writting Pin Pals. The book contains 40 patterns with detailed instructions.  It would make a good gift for a new quilter. The patterns in the book use the teeny tiniest scraps.  I found that …

January Sew Sampler Project

January 2019 Sew Sampler

January Sew Sampler from Fat Quarter Shop Included in this month’s sampler was the red Olfa’s Rotary Cutter, 40th Anniversary edition. It wasn’t even available in the stores yet.  After it debuted online in the stores a week or so later, it sold out within hours.  I was so glad to receive one in the monthly subscription box. These subscription …

Weekly Block – February 10

9 Patch Block This week’s block is a simple 9 patch. I chose to use the background fabric for the contrast squares. I’m loving these little 6 inch blocks. Again, I’m doing 2 of each. I still don’t know what I’ll do with them. Stay tuned…

Aurifil Thread

Aurifil Thread Club

I love thread. Having said that, my thread collection is very minimal.  After I bought my new Bernina, I threw away my entire Connecting Threads thread collection.  It wasn’t a high enough quality and left a lot of lent in my machine.  I made a point of only using quality, low lent threads going forward. Aurifil thread, I found, is …

Mini Swoon by Thimble Blossoms

Mini Swoon by Thimble Blossoms

To match my Swoon 16 Bed Quilt, I made a very small replica wallhanging, The Mini Swoon by Thimble Blossoms. The mini quilt measures 19″ x 19″ and uses the smallest scraps.  The Swoon block is a bit time consuming and this mini version is no exception. The small pieces can be a bit tedious but is well worth the …

Cookie Dough Quilt from Perfect 10

Cookie Dough Quilt

So, last month, I participated in the Perfect 10 Sampler Sew Along from Sew Emma’s “Perfect 10” book. The sampler consisted of one block from each of the 16 quilts. It gives the opportunity to see which block most appeals to you, I think. After finishing the sampler, I knew that I wanted to do several of these quilts.  They …

Goody Goody Binding Bag

Goody Goody Binding Bag

I have needed a hand sewing kit forever.  I ran across a video on YouTube (below) and really liked how this bag was constructed.  The compartment that holds wonder clips was the best selling point for me. The instructions for the bag can be found here. This is a great project for scraps.  Each little section only takes a small …

Finished Sew Sampler Projects

Sew Sampler Monthly Subscription Box November 2018 Finished Wallhanging   I finished the November and December Sew Sampler projects just days before receiving the January 2019 subscription box. I would like to think that I can keep up with the subscription by making every project before receiving the next.  But, that remains to be seen. The November 2018 box was …

Quilter's Planner Weekly Blocks

Quilter’s Planner Weekly Blocks

It appears that I can’t get caught up with this blog. My resolve to get this blog up and running again after a long hiatus has been a bit more difficult than I anticipated.  I guess having time to sew increases the amount of time spent blogging. And, I have been so busy sewing. The bi-weekly blocks found in the …

Sweetwater Tagged Label Subscription

Quilt Labels

I received my monthly labels from Sweetwater Co. and thought that you might like to see them.  The subscription is $7.50 per month for 2 personalized and dated labels.  The labels are printed on high quality iron-on fabric.  They are simple enough, yet still have style. This month’s labels: I have ordered labels from Border City Quilts on Etsy too. …

QP 2019 Sew Along

The Quilter’s Planner 2019 Sew Along This is the January block for the Sew Along.  I am using the same fabric (“Smitten” by Bonnie and Camille) as the pattern maker and my block is identical to the pattern picture.  I have noticed several others using the same fabrics. Posted my progress on instagram as #sandyrumsey #qp2019sewalong #quiltersplanner.
