March Sew Sampler Box!!!

Oh my goodness, I totally freaked out when I opened the March Sew Sampler box!!!  I mean, how can you know with all of this fantastic quilting goodness ;)    I know I say it every month, but I just love when this fantastic blue box arrives on my doorstep.  It really is like Christmas every month!!

This month's box had a gorgeous Fat Eighth Bundle of Wonderland by Rifle Paper Company for C+S.  And I just adore these prints!!!  My niece played Alice in a play a year back so when she comes to visit this summer I think I will pull these out and see if she wants to make something fun with them ;)   And I am excited to try out the Cotton and Steel thread from Sulky as well.  I have heard great things about it so it will be fun to give it a whirl ;)

And I love this gorgeous set of Rifle Paper Pocket Notebooks.   They are blank pages on the inside and you better believe they will be going right in my purse so that I have a sketch pad handy whenever I see a little quilty inspiration.   Rifle Paper Co just does things so pretty!!!

And finally, I flipped over this adorable Magnetic Pin Bowl by Pleasant Home.   I have been wanting one of these for so long, but just couldn't justify it as I already have a boring plain silver one.   But this one is just so perfectly cute and it even matches the Ruler Pal we got in another Sew Sampler Box.   I just love it!!!!  Now I just can't decide if I want to take it over to go on the long arm for pinning quilts to the leaders or keep it in my sewing room. (Maybe I will just have to get a second one, tee hee hee ;)  

And last but not least . . .  the monthly sampler block.  And you will never believe it, but this block is actually the 12th block.  Meaning Sew Sampler has been going for a year.   And Fat Quarter Shop sent a finishing recipe card this month as well because . . .

This marks the end of the Sew Sampler Series 1 Quilt.   I was so excited I just had to layout my blocks in the front room  (my sewing room floor is currently occupied by a secret project ;)  to see what they all look like together.   So fun!!!    I actually have enough HST's left to make another 8 blocks so that is my plan, then I can have a pretty big size quilt in a 4 x 5 layout.  Best get stitching some more HST's together can't I can wait now to finish this one up!!!

And now I am super excited to see what April's  Sew Sampler Box will bring because there will be a Series Two Quilt starting!!!!   EEEkkk, I just love surprises :)

I hope you all have a very Happy Quilting Weekend!!!
Pin It!


  1. I love that your "design wall" is your living room floor.❤ Mine is too. And the family room floor. And the bed in the spare room... I mean who has only one project in progress?

  2. Love your happy mail! I'm tempted to order myself one as I love that fabric and yes...that pin holder!!! (I'd want two also!) LOL!!

  3. I'm loving how these look. HSTs are my favorite, especially in these colors.

  4. I squealed too when I saw the contents this month! That magnetic pin bowl is just perfect!! and those Wonderland fabrics are so much fun - can't wait to cut into them.


Thank you so much for your sweet comments. I just love hearing from you!!
Have a Happy Quilting Day :)
