Happy Birthday Sew Sampler!!!!

Oh my goodness, I can not believe the Sew Sampler box is 1 Year old :)  And what an amazing year it has been ;)   I have loved every single one of my 12 boxes and continue to be amazed by the wonderful quality and value of each box :)   So of course, I was super excited for the April Sew Sampler box to arrive, and its all about a Celebration!!!  And oh my, there is certainly plenty to celebrate in this fantastic box!!!

I was so excited to see these beautiful pre-cuts of Coney Island by Fig Tree & Co.  I have played with this line for some secret sewing and it is just gorgeous!!!   And how fun is it that these are a new Pre-Cut size!!!  There Moda Treat's and measure 3 1/2" square.  So fun!!!  And wouldn't you just know it, I just happen to have a stack of white 3 1/2" squares that I accidentally over-cut for a project awhile back.  How perfect will they be together.  I don't know what they will be yet, but I know it will be so cute :)

And I love this super adorable Sewing Tin from Bee in her Bonnet.   I was just thinking the other day that I needed something to store all of my rotary blades in instead of just throwing them in my drawer.  Perfect!!!!  And you just can't help but smile at that Bee Happy :)

And the notions this month are just awesome!!!  I am so excited to use that Ruler Grip when trimming, it is going to help a ton, and of course, it totally reminds me to measure twice and cut once, which is always good :)   And one can never have to many Glass Head Pins ;)   And I haven't tried Peels, but I absolutely love the Bobbini's made by the seam company, so I am sure I will love the Peels as well ;)  

And last but not least . . .  the monthly sampler block.  It's a new Year which means a new Sampler Block Series.  And this year, the amazing Lori Holt has designed a Basket Block Sampler.  I am so excited as I had one of these on my To Make list for quite some time.  But man oh man, was it hard to choose the fabrics (which is why this post took a few more days to put up ;)   So, after some deliberation, I decided to go with a Freedom Bundle by Sweetwater for Moda and I am so excited!!!

And here is Basket Block #1 :)   Isn't it just so fun!!!   I am so loving the low volume background and can't wait to mix in all of the fantastic prints in other blocks.  I mean, what goes better with the 4th of July than Picnic Baskets ;)    And well see what comes, but I think I am already planning to use an on point layout, because ya know, you don't want things to fall out of your basket ;)

And now I am super excited to see what May's Sew Sampler Box will bring both in the fabric and notions goodies as well as the next block :)  Sometimes it is so hard to wait a whole month, tee hee hee.

I hope you all have a very Happy Quilting Weekend!!!
Pin It!
