She was part of A Notion or Two quilting bee with me last year.
Backtrack. I wanted to tell you one of the things I figured out while I was 'away' was that I need to not over-commit. It's not fair to the people that are constantly waiting for me to make good on my end of the deal. And it's not fair to me not enjoy making something because I of the worries that comes with it - guilt for being late, nervous if they will like it, making things because I HAVE to not because I want to. I'm not saying that I didn't want to be a part of such a fun group, but with my life getting so crazy this last year, I couldn't in good conscience continue with the bee and I dropped out. It was a fun group for 2 years. It turns out a lot of us had run our course and it's practically a new group. And I'm a little bit sad that I'm not still in it, because I recognized a lot of sew & tellers in the new group and how fun would it be to quilt with you!! So I've been playing catch-up on bee blocks the last few weeks and have 5 to show you and one more to make.
Okay, back to Penny! I just got the bee blocks she made for my month. I had wanted to make Rachel's Pinwheel Sampler quilt but couldn't do the quilt along, so I decided to have my group make some of the blocks! And they all turned out so cute!
Penny designed this asterisk block for the pinwheel quilt and I love it! She is a pro at paper-piecing and this just makes me happy! I know it was made from her heart. That is one important lesson I've learned from Penny. If it's truly made from your heart it will be perfect and creative and unique!
She's so sweet she also gave me one of her footstool pincushion patterns to giveaway!
|Actual kit will mostly likely differ from the photo. But knowing Penny, it will be equally awesome!|
Isn't it adorable?!
Just leave me a comment and tell me about a blogging friend you've made. I'll leave the giveaway open until, oh, I don't know, Wednesday 22 February? Remember Sew & Tell will be back next Friday! (24 Feb)
I ♥ all of you, my dear blogging buddies!
