2019-QP Sew Along

Quilter’s Planner 2019 Sew Along

The Quilter’s Planner Sew Along this year is a block a month program to make “Hexie Snowflake.” The pattern and instructions are found in the 2019 Quilter’s Planner and companion magazine.  You can order your planner here.

I have chosen the same fabric collection as seen in the sample in the Quilter’s Planner magazine. The fabric is “Smitten” by designers Bonnie and Camille.

I am using the collections’ “Smitten Cream Little Dot Darling” for the background.  It is a pretty tone on tone.  I ordered a lot extra for future projects.

The fabrics are all washed and starched and ready to go!

My finished perfect 10 sampler top. It still needs to be quilted.

I am not exactly thrilled over the final result. The Zuma fabrics were not appropriately showcased as the background overpowers them. I will do another in a different fabric line. I especially like the darker backgrounds I have seen others post.

November 2018 Sew Sampler

My Very First FQS Sew Sampler!

November 2018 Sew Sampler from The Fat Quarter Shop

So, I finally jumped in on of the monthly sampler boxes.  I chose the Sew Sampler from The Fat Quarter Shop because they always have to latest fabric lines in the freshest and most colorful collections. They are an online only shop so they “get it” when it comes to online customer service.  They also understand that to stay relevant to online customers, they need to have fresh new choices almost daily to keep interest.

December 2018 Sew Sampler

I was very pleased. Of course there was a coupon code.  The coupons are usually a 20% discount for a particular category of items. This one was for thread.

Contents included:

  • Garden Variety Charm Pack
  • Farm to Garden Finishing Kit
  • Farm to Garden Wall Hanging Pattern
  • Mini Cupcake Mix Recipe #2 Pack
  • 2019 Desktop Calendar
  • 80 wt. Aurifil Natural White 100% Cotton Thread (my favorite)
  • Barn Block Recipe #8

I really liked to fabric and cut and stitched the wall hanging straight away.  It is relatively simple and the blocks went together quickly. With the finishing kit included, I could get the entire quilt top done. I ordered fabric for the backing and it is now awaiting the quilting process.

I loved this sampler! Everything about it. The 80 wt. thread was a pleasant surprise, however. I would never have bought that thin of thread on my own. This gives me the opportunity to try it.  I am planning on using it to quilt the wall hanging.  Stay tuned!  I’ll do a blog post on that specifically.
