Sew Inspirational

I had a hard time thinking of a post title tonight...hope this one will do!  I'm sew inspired by Fresh Cottons...just getting ready to untie this bundle!  Actually, I've been doing a lot of sewing since the end of March...five quilts for International Quilt Market...and a wedding dress...none of which I can share yet, but soon!
At the beginning of the year I won a wonderful giveaway from Bonnie at Cotton Way...she recently designed a year of table runners--Fresh and Fancy--and I've now received all 12 patterns...all of which are sew inspirational...I'm binding one right now from the first group of patterns and will share it soon...can't wait to make up these new ones as well!

This is a new to me magazine patiently waiting to be read...I'm sure it will be sew inspirational too!



And block 11 of the FatQuarterShop Mystery Designer Block of the Month 2009 is done...in both colorways...can't believe the final block will be arriving any day now!  I'm also looking forward to their 2010 Designer Mystery quilt!

Well...that's all for now...have a great weekend!

You have FIVE quilts going to Market?! Sounds exciting! I look forward to seeing peaks of those, which I'm sure are gorgeous. Love your inspirational fabrics and pattern winnings. I love this issue of Stitch the best so far, so I think you will love it too!

Thanks 'sew' much for the inspiration, Sherri.

Can't wait to see the quilts that you sewed for Market. I'll just bet they'll be 'sew' beautiful!

Nedra said...

I love Cotton Ways table runners and look forward to seeing what you've made.
Lots of quilty goodness around your place.

Homer and Queen said...

What are you saying? If I was more organized I would get more done? Is that it? And I never win anything, I have to beg for it! Great blocks. Still want to be you when I grow up...

Trisha said...

That fat quarter bundle looks like a bundle of fun just waiting to happen. I can't wait to see your table runners. I love how you make two quilts at a time. I think that would work great for my charity quilts.

ivoryspring said...

That is a most unique looking block, Sherri - I love it!

John'aLee said...

I just bought that same FQ pack. It is yummy-liscious! I'm designing a BOM around it with stitchery.
Love all the inspiration you offer all of us!

Bre said...

the blocks look amazing! if i could ever learn to measure and cut properly instead of messing all of my stuff up i would die to make them, ha ha!

Thelma said...

wedding dress.....of all the things you've been working on, I'm most eager to see the dress!!

You've had a great and productive spring, Congratulations.

I think that last mystery block is amazing.

Those are great mystery blocks! I've been receiving those monthly table runners but just can't seem to get to them! Can't wait to see those quilt market quilts....and a wedding dress!! Wow!

Jackie said...

Sherri, Oh I wish I was going to spring market so I can see your quilts. I only go to fall... drats!! I am sure they are lovely and hope that you will share them once they are returned.

Nanette Merrill and daughters said...

Your header threw me. I nearly didn't know where I was. I like it. Cute fabric and this block is really interesting. I've never seen that bloc before!

Hi! My name is erica. Would you be my friend? said...

Congrats on that win! Very nice! I've seen snippets from that magazine...yummy! It's probably a good thing I haven't seen it in store. :)

Mel said...

That's an intersting block - never seen that before!

I too saw that magazine for the first time the other day. I didn't get it, but hope to!
