Weekend Sewing...

Happy Monday! I hope your weekend was a good one. As usual, I had more on my list than I could get finished up, but I'm really happy with what I was able to do!


I made the most recent Splendid Sampler block which is perfectly named "Local 


Quilt Shop" and was designed by Jane Davidson (doesn't every sampler quilt need a quilt shop?)! You also have the option to add some embroidery to this block which will make it even cuter! (Find the directions for Jane's block here).


I really do think I need to take a picture of all of my blocks every time I finish a new one...and the next Splendid Sampler block release is mine...I can't wait to share it with you!

Before I started sewing this weekend, I cut out a few things I needed to make and got them all set on design boards. It helps so much when I do that! 




I also finished up something that had been on my to do list for a long time. For over a year I've been wanting to make some pillowcases to go along with some of the Fig Tree quilts I have on the beds in our guest room and the master bedroom. I finally got those made. Again...I had them all cut out so that when I had a chance to head into the sewing room they were ready to go!



 Along with posting a Splendid Sampler block this week I also have a Farmer's Wife block tutorial...be back soon!

Thanks so much for stopping by!

Is it just me? Your whole blog is now appearing in the right column of the page. It's that way with both the blog reader I use (newsify) and directly in Safari. Hope it's an easy fix - or maybe it's just me.

It's not you. It's the blog. Something hinky has happened. I am seeing all content located on the right side of the screen too.

Love your little quilt shop! I've finished my first 7 now need to make the last 2 and then your block (I know it'll be something good!).

I like this house block so much more than the Crossroads house. I wanted to make these but with the small pieces it was too difficult. Your blocks are beautiful!

I wanted to add a thank you for the patterns you have shown. I will try making some of these Splended Sampler blocks and your pillowcases are very pretty. You are a great quilter!

Such a busy stitcher! I love seeing all your projects. I am not as successful as you at keeping up, but I did spend nearly every waking minute this weekend working in my craft room to make it a usable space, especially for sewing, once again. Maybe I'll be able to catch up once it's functional.

Cute blocks and pretty pillow cases. I've been wanting to make some pillow cases but it hasn't make on the project list yet. LOL
