August Sew Sampler (in September ;)

I hope all of my friends here in the US had a great labor day weekend last week!!!!   I know I had a blast, but it is the reason this post is coming a little late.  My niece was married on Sept. 1st and it was such a wonderful day.  This was my very first niece or nephew to be married so it was just an amazing experience for all the family.    And then we went up the mountain on Monday for some fun in the sun and rain (it literally down poured on our ATV ride, but made for an adventure ;)  . And somehow, it has taken me a full week to get caught up from the crazy, buzy, amazing, and fun weekend!!!   Please tell me that happens to everyone ;)   .  So without any further ado, I need to share my August Sew Sampler box.   And I just love the theme of box, it truly is My Happy Place !!!

So, here's a closer look of what's inside ;)  First off, I am so excited about this Petite Arctic 10" Square by Elizabeth Hartman for Robert Kaufman Fabrics!!!  I absolutely love Elizabeth's fabrics and her amazing patterns!!!   And I think I will be saving this bundle to make some North Star Friends from her new pattern for this line.    But the exclusive pattern that came with this fabric is super cute too, I just have had those little beavers on my list for a while now ;)

And I am so excited about the other fun notions this month!!!  Can I just say how much I love Olfa Splash Cutters, and I am so excited to add the Pink one to my collection!!!  They are just so easy to change the blade, fit my hand perfectly, and the bright colors just make me smile ;)     And I am very intrigued to try out the new 4 in 1 Tool from It's Sew Emma.   It works as a ruler, seam guide, marking tool, and trimming tool.  Should be fun to try out!!  And of course, I can never have enough Aurifil Thread, and this classic Oyster neutral color is perfect for piecing!!! 

And of course, with a new box, there is a new Barn Block!!!  And this month's went together super fast.  It was nice to have a little simpler piecing in the barn part of the block as I was already late this month ;)    And I just love that happy pinwheel in the center, I just never tire of the center pinwheel point, it just makes me giddy to see it all come together so precise!!!

And that's my August Sew Sampler Box, shared in September ;)   Hey, at least that means I don't have to wait so long for the next Sew Sampler Box  to arrive.  And Fat Quarter Shop has already shared a sneak peek and I think there might be some Badda Bing! coming my way, so fun!!

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