Happy 3rd Birthday Sew Sampler!!!

Oh my goodness, I can not believe the Sew Sampler Box is 3 Years old :)   Happy Birthday Sew Sampler!!!!    I can't believed I have had 36 aqua boxes arrive on my doorstep, and I have loved each and every one!!!   And of course,  I am so super excited for this new year of Aqua Quilting Goodie Boxes arriving each month!!!    And April's Sew Sampler Box starts off year 4 celebrating with Spinkles and Confetti!!!!

And the party starts with a sprinkling of Tula Goodness, which you know has me all the heart eyes!!!!   I was thrilled to find Pinkerville, Tula's new line of gorgeous fantasy prints mixed with stunning cool colors!!!  The Petite Pinkerville Design Roll paired with the Confetti Star pattern is already on the to make list!!!  All that is left is to just pick up the Finishing Kit ;)     It is just so fantastic!!! 

And Fat Quarter Shop didn't stop the Tula love there :)  They even had a Sprinkling of Tula in the notions.   How awesome is this 4 1/2" Fussy Cut Ruler!!  Can you see the unicorn etched in it :)  It just makes me smile, such a creative way to add a little pizzazz to a quilting ruler!!!  And the 4" Mini Duckbill Scissors from the Tula Hardware collection will be so perfect for trimming and applique.  I tried them out this morning for a little applique, and I love them already!!!  And the Quilter's Tips are such a great little idea for quilting on your home machine and for binding.  I think those will be going to Barbara, since I owe her big for doing so many of my bindings :)

And last but not least . . . And I am so very excited for this . . .   With a new year of  the Sew Sampler Box, comes a new sampler and this year it is the Goodness Grows quilt designed by Corey Yoder.   Corey was actually in the first online quilting bee I participated and we have been good friends ever since!!!   I absolutely love her fabrics  (made quilts with them here, here, here, and here)  And I am thrilled that I happened to get a bundle of her just announced (not released until Sept.)  Sugarcreek Line from my good friends at Moda!!!!   As soon as I saw the first pattern, I knew I just had to break open this bundle for this new years blocks :)

And here is the first block, Be Fruitful!!!  Isn't is just so great!!!  That is 1" finished patchwork in the center of the block and I can't get over how totally cute it is ;)    I am hoping we will see more of that adorable patchwork in future blocks, but only time will tell.   But I can tell already, I am so going to love this quilt!!!

Which makes me all the more excited to see what will come next month, both in fabric and notions as well as the next Goodness Grows block :)

And sad to say, if you are wanting to get in on the new year of Sew Sampler boxes you have to get in line.  There is currently a waiting list as the box subscription is full.   But hopefully the wait isn't to long.  (I have been told new spots open up each week!!!)     And if you just want to make the new Goddness Grows patterns along with everyone else, they will be available each month, as well as a Goodness Grows Quilt Kit, that includes over 14 yards of fabric in Corey's current line Strawberry Jam, which is oh so great as well!!! 

And if you are waiting to get in on the Sew Sampler Box fun, I have a special Birthday Surprise coming later this week . . .think some of this month's quilting goodies . . .be sure and check back :)
