Happy 5th Birthday Sew Sampler!!!

 Oh my goodness, I can not believe the Sew Sampler Box is 5 Years old :)   Happy Birthday Sew Sampler!!!!    And I am so looking forward to another year of these fantastic 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 2021 Sew Sampler Box and the theme this month is Town Square and it is just awesome!!! 

And I was just thrilled when I lifted the cover of my box to find a Sunday Stroll Fat Quarter Pack!!   I have worked with this line when I made the Stroll quilt for Moda, and it is just gorgeous!!!  That black print is actually my favorite in the line!!!  (hence why it is in this sneak peak too ;)   And the Starflower Quilt is just so cute!!  I always love these exclusive patterns.  I have some leftover Low Volume prints from the Stroll FQB I made the quilt with, so now I am just trying  to decide if I should use those as the background in this quilt, or keep it solid.   Decisions, Decisions :)   

And the notions for this Birthday Celebration are so great!!!! First off, this adorable Keep it Quilty Canvas Project Bag.   Isn't that just so great!!!  It just has quilter written all over it, literally ;)   And of course, the 3" Square in a Square Foundation paper is great for the sashing in the Starflower Quilt Pattern.   And finally, these Keep it Quilty Labels, that totally match the bag and are just so fun. How cute will they look tucked in a binding ;)  

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 Bright Side Quilt Along!!!!  And I had to laugh, because I saw the title of the quilt along, and immediately thought of making the opposite ;)   I have just fallen in love with all of the neutral quilts that are popping up and thought this sampler would just be awesome in all neutrals.  Then I realized I have a stack of scraps from all of Basic Grey's Neutral Lines (ie, Little Black Dress, Little Black Dress 2, Stiletto, and Maven) that would work perfect for a Neutral Bright Side . . . 

 And here is Block 1 of the Bright Side Quilt along in beautiful Basic Grey Neutrals ;)   I have no idea what blocks are to come but I am so excited to see where this is going to go.   I just love all of these prints (hence why I have so many scraps from so many lines) and I love the idea of combining all of the scraps into one fun sampler quilt.   Should be fun!!!   And yippee for Scrap Busting!!!!

And just a note, there was some openings for this new years Sew Sampler boxes but they filled up super fast.  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 the Box Theme and the Block 2 will be ;)  

Only 30 Days to wait ;)  
Pin It!

  1. I love your idea of doing the Bright Side sew-a-long in the opposite. The first block already pops!
