May Sew Sampler Box!!

It's always a good day when my Sew Sampler box arrives on my doorstep :)  And I am getting better and not peeking on Instagram, so it is always such a fun surprise!!!   And this month I opened my box to find a rainbow of quilty goodness!!!

I was so excited to see these beautiful Fat Eighth Bundle of Karen Lewis' Blueberry Park!!!!  I just finished a quilt top (I'll share soon :) in blues and greens in this fabulous line and I just love it.  I can't wait to get started on something with this rainbow goodness.  I mean, how can you not be happy when you are sewing up a rainbow ;) 

And I might just be planning to use the bundle on this Pacific Quilt, a Sew Sampler exclusive pattern.  I have heard so much about the Quilt in a Day Small Flying Geese Ruler so it would be fun to give that a try in this pattern as well ;)   Trying new things and quilting a rainbow, double bonus!!!   (But what do you think about maybe a grey background instead of white  . . . I'll have to think on that ;)

And the notions this month are so fun!!!  I have already filled up that little Snap n' Store case with all of my marking utensils and I am excited to have them all in one place now ;)   And that little seam roller is so going to come in handy!!!   And I just had to share the new sticker this year, how cute is that!!!! 

And finally, if you remember from last month, we are making Basket Block's this year!!!   And I am doing mine in a patriotic theme using Sweetwater's Freedom fabric line.    And here is Basket  #2 :)   Two blocks in and I am just loving these little guys!!!  This is going to be such a fun quilt when it is all done ;)

And that is the May Sew Sampler Box  . . . Now to wait a whole month until my little blue box arrives on the doorstep again ;)   Good thing I have lots of other projects, not to mention the kids out of school as of today, to keep me busy until then ;)

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


  1. Yay! I'm so happy to see this. I'm out of town until Sunday night and am sad I wasn't home to open my box. It's always a highlight for me. I'm looking forward to fondling everything when I get home.

  2. I was as excited as ever to get my Sew Sampler Box. It's like Christmas morning every month! Unfortunately, there has been so much different stuff going on in my world right now, I haven't been able to play with everything! You do know that I tore into the box as soon as I got it though! I can't wait for June to happen, so I can get back to my regularly scheduled program and live in my sewing room for days on end to catch up!

  3. Hi- Your picnic blocks are beautiful. Which size are you making?

    1. Thanks so much Denise ;) I am making the 10" blocks.


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