May Sew Sampler!!!

Oh my goodness, I can not believe another month has come and gone.   It really is crazy how fast time flies, especially once school has ended.  This last week just flew by.   But ya all know, the best think about another month come and gone is another Sew Sampler box !!!!  I found my little aqua box of goodness waiting for me in the mail and I was so excited to open this and find the theme of the month is Bee Creative.   And this month's box has me wanting to do just that!!!


I am a big fan of Corey Yoder and have made a quilt with every line she has designed so far, up to Pepper and Flax, so you can imagine how excited I was to find a Pepper and Flax Jolly Bar!!!   And matching Aurifil to go with it, double bonus!!!!  And the  Beehive Quilt pattern that came with is just to cute ;)   It has some shortcuts in the pattern to that would make it awfully quick to make up too.  Now I just have to decide if I want to use this Jolly Bar to make this cute pattern, or to make up Corey's new Barn Star pattern.   She showed it today on Instagram mocked up in Pepper and Flax and I just loved it!!!    Decisions, Decisions ;) 



And I totally squealed over the notions this month!!!  They are so great!!!!    I am such a huge fan of Alphabitties and I just love these new ones in Grey ;)   I have all 3 sets now and am excited that I can now be working on 3 quilts and still have all the little markers I need :)    And I am loving all of the Creative Grids rulers I am accumulating in my boxes!!!  I am a huge fan of their markings and especially the little grips on the back of the rulers, so great!!!    And this 4 1/2" x 8 1/2" sized ruler is one that I did not have and I have already used it 3 times.  It is a great size for marking and trimming and I really like that there is still room for my hand on it.  (no more oopsie cutting fingers for me, thank you very much ;)  



And of course, with a new box, there is a new Block!!!  This new year is all about Barn Blocks in Monochromatic and I here is Barn Block #2 :)   And I have to say, I am pretty proud of my little baby points on this block!!!  Those HST's finish at 1", so having the pinwheel in the center come together so well, ya I was totally smiling ;)  I am just loving these!!


And that's my May Sew Sampler Box, and now to wait a whole month before June's Sew Sampler Box  will arrive.   But with Summer Band, Swim Lessons, Library Time, and summer in general, I am sure it will be here before I know it ;) 

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