February Sew Sampler Box!!

Wow, it's the last day of February!!  I know February is a shorter month, but still, that just flew by!!   The best thing though, about another month come and gone is that my February Sew Sampler box showed up in my mailbox ;)    This month's theme is Home Sweet Cottage and I am just thrilled with all of it's quilty goodies!!!

It's no secret that I absolutely love Charm Packs!!! And I totally squealed when I saw that this month's fabric included not one, but two of  April's new Mama's Cottage Charm Packs!!!  I just love the super happy and bright colors of this line and the prints are just so fun and whimsical.  Wouldn't these just make the cutest Charming Totes!!!  I think I might have to just earmark one of these Charm Packs for just that :)

And I just love this month's pattern by Lissa Alexander. I totally want to make this pattern a la super scrappy, which seems fitting as it is in conjunction with Lisa's new book Oh, Scrap!  (which I will be sharing more about soon, it's awesome!!! ;)   And I am excited to try out Doug Leko's new Simple Folded Corners Ruler.  It makes is so you don't have to draw the line on your stitch and flip corners.  I haven't drawn my lines for a while now as I use the Clearly Perfect Angles on my sewing table which I absolutely love!!!!  (and it works for HST's too)    So I will have to try out this ruler and see which option I like better for stitch and flip corners ;)  Or, maybe it will go with my traveling machine as I don't take my sewing table when I travel which makes it so I can't use the CPA cling.  There's an idea ;) 

And the last few goodies out of the box included a Triangles on a Roll for 2" Finished HST's  and some Aurifil Thread, which we all know, you can never have to much of ;)     I am not much for Paper Piecing my HST's as I can make them super fast as I don't have to draw my lines and I love my Bloc-Loc's for trimming them, but this will be the perfect little gift for a Paper Piecing friend ;)  

And of course, I can't finish up a Sew Sampler box post without this month's Basket Block!!!   Block 11 and I have to say, I just love that background fabric,it's just so fun!!!  .Only one more month and this will be ready to be sewn up, my my how a year flies by!!!

And that is my February Sew Sampler Box  . . . and it just makes me want to stay Home Sweet Home all day and sew!!!  I know I say it every month, but Thanks again Fat Quarter Shop for always sending an amazing box of Quilty Goodness!!! 

And now I am off to work on a project for an upcoming tutorial in a few months,  and hey, I just thought, it has stitch and flip corners, so looks like I will be trying out that new ruler today!!! 

Have a Happy Quilting Day!!!
