November Sew Sampler Box!!

It's the most wonderful time of the Year!!!   I love the build up to Christmas that starts after Thanksgiving.   It just makes me smile ;)  And I think each month, the most wonderful day of the Month is the day my Sew Sampler box arrives in the mail!!!  I just love finding that little blue box waiting for me ;)  And November's box has me all kinds of giddy.   The theme is County Fair and it is so great!!!!



For starters, I love Vanessa from Lella Botique and I have made a quilt from every one of her lines to date.   So I was thrilled when I found this month's Sew Sampler box  had a Charm Pack of her newest line Garden Variety, as well as the finishing kit for included pattern.   How awesome is that!!!   The pattern is Farm to Garden by Carrie Nelson, and she is another one of my favorite people in this industry!!!  I just love that gal and am so excited for her new Pin Pals book.    And how cute are these little stars, now the only hard part will be deciding if I want to make the Wall Hanging, or turn those adorable stars into little pincushions.  Decisions, Decisions . . . I guess I could always do both ;)


And this month's notions are just so great as well. I love the Cupcake mixes and have found them so helpful in making my Dessert Sampler blocks.   They are great for the tiny piecing, and of course, go right along with the Star pattern above ;)    And I am super excited for the little 2019 Desk Calendar.  I love having one of these on my desk right next to the computer and it even has the blocks from the Threadology Quilt Along on it in happy bright colors!!!  Love it!!!! And of course, you can never have enough Aurifil Thread, and those wooden spools are to cute for words :)



And of course, with a new box, there is a new Barn Block!!!  And this month's block went together super fast, as it was some larger piecing.   Which I have to say, I think they are purposely giving us a break after the more complex month's of blocks.   Those gals at  Fat Quarter Shop are so smart!!!     This makes 8 blocks and I am getting super excited to see how this is going to all come together ;) 



And that's my November Sew Sampler Box!!!    Now the big question is, will December's arrive in time to go under the tree, and if it does, will I actually be able to wait to open it ;)  

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

Pin It!
