October Sew Sampler Box!!

So I know October has come and gone, but I just wanted to pop in and share my amazing October  Sew Sampler Box :)   Yes, it has been sitting on my sewing table for over a week waiting to be opened, life get's a little crazy sometimes ;)   But it was totally worth the wait!!  It really is such a fun suprise each month when I get to open my Sew Sampler Box!!! And this month's theme of My Happy Place is just perfect, as Utah just went into a State of Emergency and I will be in my Happy Place a whole lot more ;)  

First I unboxed these super fun Paintbox Basics by Elizabeth Hartman and oh so happy!!!  You all know I just love sewing with the rainbow ;)  And now I can't decide if I want to make this adorable exclusive La Casita pattern in it's baby size, or pull out my Arctic Layer Cake from 2 years back and combine the two to make a larger size La Casita pattern.   What do you think???  Wouldn't it be fun to pull the warm rainbow and the cool rainbow together!!!!  

And next came the notions and I am so excited for these!!!     First up, the Courthouse Steps Foundation paper.   And you know I am just going to include these in to my Foundation Paper pattern I planned back here.  So great!!!  And the Creative Grids Seam Guide Ruler is so awesome!!  I use a Clearly Perfect Angle Cling so I don't have to draw lines, but every time I teach I have people asking if I have this ruler they could use.  Now I can say yes!!!!    And finally, how great are those Scissor ID Clips!!  I am so excited to have thread, fabric, and paper markers from my scissors, and they are just so easy to use as they are magnetic.  Perfect!!!

And last, but not least . . . a new box means a new Block!!   .This year we are working on the Greatest Hits Quilt and this block is Track 7  and I think it is my favorite block so far ;)   I pulled out the blue and green scraps from my stroll quilt and they were just enough (with a little special stitching) to work for this block!!!   And I  finished it, loved it, and realized, I did a solid background instead of a low volume one like I have done for the other blocks.  But I like it so much, I just might leave it anyway, it will add a fun little pop in the quilt I think :) 

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 the September Sew Sampler Box from Fat Quarter Shop :)  I just love this Subscription Box!!

I hope you all have a very Happy Quilting Day . . . Let's make this a great week!!!
