You all know lovely Nicole from her guests posts here this summer. She is making a maple leaf quilt. It's going to be SO cute! Here's my block for her:
And Sarah, of A Flower for You, is starting her adventure in mommyhood in a few short months. These blocks will be for her little man. I just love the colors.
My month was May. I thought it would be a good month, I could send out fabric early before I had the baby and before moving got crazy... well, it didn't work out so well. I don't think I sent my fabrics out until mid-May - so I've given my dear quilting friends more time to get them back to me. Here's what I have so far. I'm in love with it!
The fabric is Swanky by Chez Moi (I think that's right). And the pinwheels come from Rachel's (from P.S. I Quilt) pattern. Pinwheels are one of my favorite blocks. I'm going to have 12 all together and I'm debating making more to make a bigger quilt....
Now a few notes about Sew & Tell. I've kind of agonized about writing this. I've felt a little overwhelmed with how many linkers we've had over the last few months and I wanted to feel less overwhelmed. I wrote that sew & tell survey post a while back to get some feedback and I've used some of that here.
Sew & Tell isn't just any linky party. Since you can't come to my house every Friday to show what you've been sewing, we get together here!
- a time to get together each week to celebrate a finish of a sewing related project.
- a place to meet like-minded kindred sewing spirits.
- an opportunity to get feedback and encouragement to keep cutting up your favorite pieces of fabric!
- a place to be inspired by the lovely and creative friends you will inevitably make.
I know we are all busy. I know that we can't always visit every blog that links up each week. I want every minute you spend here to be worth your while. That's why I've changed some of the link up requirements.
I appreciate all of you regular linkers and I'm happy to welcome new-comers. However, I'm into quality over quantity. I'm into blogging etiquette. Please participate using the guidelines.
Now I know some people are new. Or you wrote about something earlier in the week. Just add a little note about sew & tell to let your other friends know what we're up to. Maybe they'll be inspired to get some of their projects finished too!
I have gotten some great ideas from projects you have done, as I'm sure you have! If you used a tutorial to make something - link up to it, in case someone (ie: me) wants to add it to their to-do list. If you have written a tutorial it would be awesome if you could link to that in a different post as well, sometimes the tutorials in the sew & tell posts are distracting.
And a finish can be whatever you deem a finish, like pieces of a bigger project - like a quilt top for instance. And if you don't want to blog about a gift until the receiver has gotten it, that's totally fine! I'm not a total party-pooper. :)
When sew & tell was born - it really was a means to have a weekly goal. Finishing up one sewing project a week. Let's keep it in that spirit and continue enjoying everyone's talents!
I have seen some amazing work here! You guys are awesome and I'm glad to know you!
Did you make it this far? Thanks for
