Happy Tuesday! My February Sew Sampler box from Fat Quarter Shop arrived at the end of last week, and as usual I was anxious to see what was inside. There are lots of goodies included this month including a brand new notion that is a “must get.”
The “Home Sweet Cottage” theme is perfect for the end-of-February blues that
sometimes affect us this time of year…and the Mama’s Cottage charm packs are the perfect bright and cheery fabrics to sew with now. Find Mama’s Cottage pre-cuts and yardage here.
Also included with the charm packs is a table topper pattern by Lissa Alexander–a Fat Quarter Shop exclusive in conjunction with her new book! If you haven’t ordered her book Oh, Scrap!: Fabulous Quilts That Make the Most of Your Stash…you should seriously think about it…it’s wonderful!
The new notion I was so excited to see is the Mini Simple Folded Corners ruler! I absolutely love my original Simple Folded Corners ruler and was just delighted to see the smaller size now. I’ve got them pictured together above for comparison. I’ve been using this ruler frequently in my sewing, and the new mini will come in very handy when working with smaller pieces (you can see my original review of the Simple Folded Corners ruler here). You can purchase the new Mini Simple Folded Corners ruler along with the original one here.
I was so excited about the fun charm packs and the mini ruler that I forgot to mention that some Aurifil thread is included along with triangles on a roll for 2″ finished half-square triangles. This Sew Sampler subscription book was a terrific one! If you’d like to subscribe and get a box of goodies in your mailbox every month you can find all of the information to subscribe here.
Thanks so much for stopping by and happy quilting!
