Cupid Box 2023!!!

 It's that time of year . . . when the Annual Cupid Box  arrives in the mail!!!    This years box is filled with so to love about this quilting goodness!!!   And sadly, the Cupid Box was sold out in pre-orders, but some of the lovely quilty goodness can still be found separately :)   And I can't wait to break open those strips and get stitching!!!  

I was so happy to find these gorgeous Clothworks XOXO Strips for making this adorable Heartstrings Quilt!!! Isn't that just to precious.  I have already started cutting it out ;)   I just love making quilted hearts :) 

And the notions that  Fat Quarter Shop sent along this month are just so fun!!!! I was just saying to a friend the other day I have not tried quilt as you go . . . and now with the Strip Mug Mats, I am totally going to give it a whirl :)    And the Pincushion slap band will be great for working on the longarm.   And my husband already tried to take the cute letter opener to work, but no way is it leaving my desk :)   And finally,  you can never have enough Aurifil thread ;)    So great!!!! 

What a super fun Cupid Box !!!  I am already looking forward to next years ;)   

Hope you all have a very Happy Quilting Day!!!

January Sew Sampler

 I can't believe January is already winding down to an end.  Where did this month go??   But one good thing about time flying, with the end of the month, comes my favorite Sew Sampler Box!!  And this January box is so amazing!!!   The theme is Grow Kindness and it is a box filled with Loir Holt Goodness ;) This just makes me so happy!!! 

First is not one, but two, gorgeous Calico 5" Stackers!!!   You all know how I love Charm Packs, and these Calico prints are just so happy and bright.  You can see them all in the adorable Wheelbarrow Table Runner pattern.  They just remind me of trips to the fabric store with my mom, such a fun throw back!!!  Now I have to decide if I will make the table runner, or squirrel these Charm Packs away for another Charming Baby Quilt ;)   

And I just love that the notions always go with the box!!!  The Wheelbarrow Table Runner pattern uses the Vintage Kite Foundation Paper, so of course, it's in the box, I just love that!!!  And how fun is the Bee in my Bonnet Wrist Pin Cushion.  So handy!! And finally, those Lori Holt Readers are just to cute for words.   I am not at the point of needing readers (although I don't think it is far off) but I have lots of quilty friends that these would make a lovely surprise for ;)  

And if you love this box as much as I do, Fat Quarter Shop has a big surprise staring this month!!!   You can buy the January Sew Sampler Box Ala Cart with no subscription or membership obligations!!  It's a great way to give the box a try and see if it is something you would love to arrive at your door each month :)  

And if you love it, you can always sign up membership to the Sew Sampler boxes  and get a happy box of quilty goodness at the end of each month :)  So fun!!!  

And that is the January  Sew Sampler Box from Fat Quarter Shop :) 

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

Quilt Goal 2023 - I'm Going to Make a . . .

When I was asked by my good friends at Fat Quarter Shop if I wanted to participate in their Quilt Goal 2023  event I was all in ;)   The idea is to challenge yourself to create something all-new to you in 2023.  So I started to think of a quilting goal that is outside my usual fare.   And I have to say, I had to think for a little while.  I went through the APQ Bucket List,  and ya know (making 50+ quilts a year) I had tried most of it.  So what to make????  

And then it hit me.  . .   and this is way outside my usual fare!!  I am not going to lie, I am a little scared to attempt this.   Can you guess what my quilt goal is by all of the supplies??

Yup. . . .I am going to make a Quilted Duffle Bag!!!!   With zippers, and lining, and interfacing, and hardware, and wow, just a little overwhelming ;)   The most in detailed bag I have ever made is my Charming Tote, and this is a whole lot more detailed than that.   But I am excited, and scared, but mostly excited to challenge myself to try this new to me project.    Wish me luck :)  

So how about you????  Is there a project that you want to try that is outside of your usual fare??  Join in the Quilt Goals 2023 Challenge.   And use the #QuiltGoals2023 to share your progress ;)  I can't wait to see what your goal will be ;)

Barn Star Sampler QAL - Block 1

It's Month 1 of the Barn Star Sampler Quilt Along and I am just so excited to share my first set of blocks!!!  Thanks to Fat Quarter Shop' for hosting this awesome quilt along, I can tell already this is going to be a favorite quilt of the year :)    On the last Friday of each month I will be sharing my new Barn Star Sampler blocks, and this month we are starting out with Block 1 :)  

I am planning to make my Barn Star Sampler 100" x 100" square, so that is why I made 3 blocks instead of 2.  And each block is made in color from my Rainbow of Ombre goodness!!!   This month's Block 1 is made . . . 

in Blue 

Purple  (my favorite :)  

and Teal

And these Diamond Star Blocks were so much fun to make!!!  Talk about lots and lots of points to line up!!!  I just loved seeing them come together and am already looking forward to next month's star block :) 

So are you joining in the quilt along star fun as well??  Be sure to share all of your Barn Star Sampler progress on social media with #BarnStarSamplerqal and check out Fat Quarter Shops post for Block 1  for lots more Barn Star Inspiration!!!   Oh, and be sure to check out the comments, because there have been lots of questions asked and your questions most likely are in there too ;)  

And that's it for Block 1 - The Diamond Star Block in the Barn Star Sampler Quilt Along!!!!      

Thanks for popping in today ;)  Have a Happy Quilting Day!!
