I don't know how Fat Quarter Shop does it, but somehow they just manage to make every Sew Sampler box a perfect combo of just what I needed at the time :) This month's theme is Tropical Paradise and I was so in paradise when I opened my box and saw all of the incredible quilty goodness inside!!!
A few days ago I was talking to my sister-in-law about colors for a baby quilt as she recently found out she was expecting a boy. She loved the idea of sea blues and greens with some added oranges and maybe a touch of coral. And so could have been more fortuitous when I opened my Sew Sampler box to find a bundle of Elizabeth Hartman's new Reef collection!!!! Perfect!!!! And my SIL just loves the exclusive Chuckles pattern that came with the bundle, so I am all set for this new project!!!! How perfect is that ;)
And of course, I can never have enough Aurifil Thread and this beautiful variegated sea green is just so pretty!!! I can't wait to sew with it ;) And how adorable are those hand made woven labels!!! They are going to go perfectly with my new custom Happy Quilting labels I got last month :) Seriously, this month's box was packed with some amazing quilting goodness and I can't wait to play with it all!!!!
And last, but certainly not least, this month's Basket Block!!! I love how this block turned out a little "softer" than some of the previous blocks. I think that is mostly due to the background, but I sure love the variety it gives them. It is going to be so fun to see these all come together ;)
And that is what I found in my August Sew Sampler Box . . . and boy did it make me smile!!!! And I have to laugh, because as soon as I open the box, and see everything inside, I start getting antsy for the next month's box :) Good thing time sure seems to be speeding up now that school has started. Before I know it, my little blue box will be back on my doorstep again :)
I hope you all have a very Happy Quilting Day!!!! I am off to cut out my Chuckles Quilt ;)
