So I know December has come and gone, but I was a little slow this month getting my Hits block made. So before January goes, I wanted to pop in and share my amazing December Sew Sampler Box :) The shipping on this box was also delayed because of supplier issues, but it was totally worth the wait!! It really is so great when I get to open my Sew Sampler Box!!! And this month's theme of Winter Flea Market has me wanting to create all kinds of treasures!!!
First is this beautiful set of 10" squares of Flea Market by Lori Holt
for Riley Blake Designs!! Isn't this just so pretty!!! And how fun is this Twinkle Toes table runner pattern. I love how it really let's the prints shine!!! I am debating between making the table runner, or adding my Vintage Happy 2 prints from last December's box
and making a whole quilt. I think the two would pair together so perfectly, and this would just be oh so cute!! What do you think, table runner or go big and make the quilt???
And I just love that the notions always go with the box!!! You can't make Twinkle Toes without Sparkle Star Foundation paper
:) And how quick and easy this would be to use. Just brilliant!!! And I love this Magnetic Needle Case
. And I just love magnets to keep sharp objects in place, so great :) And finally, of course, I am excited about the Aurifil Thread
. One can never have enough Aurifil
And of course, my little reason for the hold-up in posting . . . a new box means a new Block!! .This is the Greatest Hits Quilt
block Track 9
and I think it is just so fun ;) I don't know why I waited so long to get it made (actually I do, lots of behind the scenes sewing has been going on) but truly, this block went together fast. I think I spent more time pulling scraps than it took me to make the block ;) And isn't it just so fun with that yellow low volume background ;) I can't wait to see this quilt come together!!
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 December Sew Sampler Box
from Fat Quarter Shop
:) And now I only have to wait a few days for my January Box!! So great!!!
I hope you all have a very Happy Quilting Day . . . Let's make this a great week!!!
