May Sew Sampler Box!!!

So I know it is June, but May's Sew Sampler Box came a little late last month, and I didn't want to share the reveal until everyone had a chance to get their box :)  And what an awesome box it was!!!  The theme for this month's Sew Sampler Box is Bobbin" 4 Apples and it is just filled with quilting goodness!!!

First off, I was thrilled to find an entire bundle of Orchard Fat Eighths by April Rosenthal for Moda Fabrics!!!  I love everything April's Designs and these Orchard Prints are no exception!!!  I love the the happy colors and adorable prints.   So fun!!!  And how cute is this Apple Crisp quilt design to use the bundle on.   I think I want to add one more set of triangles on the sides and make it square, and then maybe a border to make it a good lap size.   So cute!!! 

And fun notions this month!!  First off, the Triangles on a Roll paper for making those giant HST's in the Apple Crisp pattern.  I just love when they include everything I need to make the pattern.   And then a beautiful Bohin Sewing Needle Book and awesome Clover Fork Pins.  I have never tried fork pins, but in class I have had students that just love them!!!  And you know, a quilter can never have enough needles and pins!!!!

And I was thrilled that this month's Goodness Grows block included applique!!!  You all know how much I love to do Machine Applique.   And while I am not using the Goodness Grows quilt  kit, I am using Sugar Creek which is Corey Yoder's next line and lucky for me, the Goodness Grows Thread Set made for the kit is still a perfect match for Sugar Creek!!!  So I had to get that :)  I love how the Aurifil 80wt thread is so fine it just blends away on the applique.  So pretty!!!  And those adorable wooden spools are pretty awesome too!!!

And here is the second block block, Branch Out!!!  Isn't is just so great!!! I really, really, really love those patchwork strawberries ;)    And I might have also got that adorable Felt Letter Board.  (not in the Sew Sampler box, but awesome none the less)  I have been wanting one for some time and I was thrilled to finally get one!!!

And that is my May  Sew Sampler box  :)   And now there is even less days to wait for my June Box to arrive.  Gotta love a silver lining :)

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

  1. I had the exact same thoughts about the Apple Crisp quilt--make it a square and add a border to make it a more useful size. The bundle has ten fat eighths, so easy peasy.

  2. Hey Hon, can you shoot me an email and let me know how to sign up for the sample box?

    1. HI Happy Quilting, I can't send you an email because you are a no-reply blogger so I don't have your email. But if you click on the Sew Sampler link above in the text, it will take you to the sign up page. Then Click on the JOIN THE WAITINGLIST box. As soon as a spot opens up, you will start getting boxes ;)


Thank you so much for your sweet comments. I just love hearing from you!!
Have a Happy Quilting Day :)
