September Sew Sample

Wow, first day of October!!!   And fall is really starting to set in.  So it was perfect, that September's    Sew Sampler box was like a goodbye to summer.  The theme for September's box was Sweet as Cherry Pie which is funny, because as soon as I lifted the cover and saw what was inside, I totally yelled "Sweet".

We start out with fabric . . . and this month's fabric not only has an adorable Badda Bing Charm Pack, it also comes with the background and binding fabric for the cutest Cherry Pickin Table Runner pattern that was included.   So a full kit!!!   How awesome is that!!!    This pattern has sprung right up to the top of my To Make list.  It reminds me of the Double Dresden Delight quilt that I did a tutorial for way back when, and I so loved it then and have wanted to make more Double Dresden's.  Now I have the perfect kit to do just that!!!

And did you notice that those Dresden's in the Cherry Pickin pattern are pieced.  Oh my adorable!!!   And wouldn't you know, this month's notions just happen to be just what you need to make the pattern ;)   A new Double Wide 4 Patch Dresden Template and a Fiskars 28MM Rotary Cutter, perfect for cutting around that little template ;)   I have one of these, and my MIL was using it the other day and saying how great it is for little curves.  Now she can just keep it as I have a new one.  So perfect!!!  

And of course, with a new box, there is a new Barn Block!!!  And this month's was another one with lots of little points to line up.  I was thrilled with how my came together, but when I got it outside to take a picture of it, I noticed I have two shades of white in the block.   Ah well,  I am just using up white bits of scraps in this quilt, so I guess it will be scrappy in the block as well now ;)

And that's my September Sew Sampler Box, shared on the very first day of October ;)   Fat Quarter Shop, I know I have said it before, but you all rock!!!  My little Aqua Box is my favorite mail day and I am just love each and every one!!!!

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

  1. Melissa, the box is amazing! I love the pattern and would love to get a box like this some day. The template is super cool
    Your house block is sweet. If the top drives you crazy, you know what to do.
    I am a little ocd and would probably change the two top triangles so that the middle vertical strip can stay snow or whatever that shade is.
    As always, you are so inspiring.


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