Sew-Fantastic and Sew Many Ways....

Just a few “Show & Tells” today. I found a new blog I just love called “Sew Many Ways. As I was reading her blog, my eye caught a beautiful set of Americana projects. As I started to read, I found out she was giving them away!! Yes, to the first two people who asked! I said I loved them and they showed up at my home. I am the gal that likes to hand quilt and let others do the top, she is the gal that likes to do tops and not quilt. A match made in Heaven. I know exactly what I am going to do with all three pieces. The bigger one will be a perfect place-mat for my butcher block counter. The one with the star in the middle will be a pot holder I will never use. Every year on the 4th of July, we take a picture because it is my favorite Holiday; the third piece holds a 4 X 6 picture!! Therefore, that will be a wall hanging. Thank you so much Karen, I just love them and your kindness.

Next, I am not sure I should thank Terri for this; I saw on her blog "Sew Fantastic" the most beautiful fabrics from Robert Kaufman. The line is called Monaluna Birds in Spring the Metro Market Line. Sure, I had to have it and found it from the Etsy store Fabricworm. It is to die for!

Well, let me tell you Terri has a great blog, and Karen has a great blog, go stop by and visit. You will be glad you did! I sure was.

  14. Hi Jane I went to visit the newest favorite blog! You are right it is good!
    It's always fun to drop in and see what someone new is doing to inspire us.
    I myself really like the quilting as much as making the tops.
    Best of all is the hand finishing which I really love the quiet work of just looking and feeling an accomplishment.

  15. I cannot wait to see your creations with the quilt pieces and the fabric you are showing are wonderful. Your blog is fun and intersting. No I have not had any links sent to me for new products and I can understand your frustration with that process. Have a wonderful time quilting. It looks like you enjoy it very much.
