Happy 4th Birthday Sew Sampler!!!

Oh my goodness, I can not believe the Sew Sampler Box is 4 Years old :)   Happy Birthday Sew Sampler!!!!    And I am so looking forward to another year of these lovely little boxes arriving on my doorstep, it really is just the best day of my month!!!   And so let's kick off a new year with the April 2020 Sew Sampler Box that is appropriately You're Invited!  Themed :) 

And the party starts with a gorgeous At Home Jolly Bar from Bonnie and Camille!!   And really, could it be a more perfect line since we are all literally At Home ;)  And I love this Garden Gala Pattern!!!   It is so adding to my list to make, although I think I might add one more block in the center, just for fun :)   Wouldn't that be so cute!!!  

And the notions for this Birthday Celebration are so great!!!! First off, an Alphabitties Expansion Pack!!!  You all know I use my Alphabitties all the time, and just the other day I was drawing on some to make an 11, now I have them all set :)  So perfect!!    And we all know how I feel about hand stitching, so this Posey Handmade Thread Conditioner will most likely be going to Barbara, but I think she will just love it!!!  And finally, this super fun Scallops and Waves Template ruler.  How great for free motion quilting on your home machine!!  I still do that for small projects and am excited to try this out :) 

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 quilt and this year it is the Greatest Hits Quilt!!!!  And this is actually why my post is a few days late . . . I just couldn't decide what fabrics to use for my Sampler quilt this year.   After a lot of debate, I finally decided I really needed to do a scrap buster . . . and from there, I figured my Low Volume Scraps were really needing some busting . . . and that led to the first block called Track 1  ;)   I plan to make print blocks that match the pattern colors with a "matchy" low volume background.   I have no idea where this is going to go in the coming months, but I am so loving this first block!!!   And yippee for Scrap Busting!!!!

And just a note, 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 that is April's  Sew Sampler Box and I am so looking forward to May's Box ;)  I can't wait to see what Track 2's block will be ;)  
Pin It!
