Sew Sampler and a Giveaway!

First a catchup with what got done this weekend:

Four blocks of the day -- this is going really fast!

Look at the cute selvage on one of the prints...

And -- ta da!! -- ready for borders!
To make the weekend even better, the September Sew Sampler box came.

Even the inside of the empty box is fun!
Inside -- a charm pack and a pattern for a table runner that works with it. I cut a yard of a white print and gave these to my goddaughter Destiny. She just got a new Brother machine and needs a project to go with it.
Then there was a storage tin and a Pop Socket for my phone -- of course, Destiny put it on for me since I couldn't decide where I wanted it. I am greatful for this smart young person in my life to guide me through the techno maze.

And the giveaway!

This Matchbox Quilt kit has bright yellow and white fabric, batting and floss to make a 6" square mini quilt. It's a beautiful shade of yellow that always makes me think of kitchens and sunrooms. You could use it for a potholder, a trivet or frame it to hang on the wall.

Want it? Leave a comment about the color yellow. Love it? Hate it? Use it in your quilts? We'll pick a winner October 15!

Good luck!


  1. Yellow always makes me think of sunshine! Who doesn't love sunshine? Yellow isn't my favorite color, but it finds its way into many of my sewing projects to add a little zippy happiness here and there! I'd make a sweet pot holder with this kit.

  2. I love the color yellow in quilts especially with bright white. It's so cheery and reminds me of sunshine.

  3. Not crazy about yellow, but it can add sparkle when used in moderation.

  4. I love all colors when it comes to putting them in a quilt- bright pop of yellow? - nothing better! Thank you, Susan
