October Sew Sampler Box!!

October has for sure been a catch-up month for me :)  It has been nice to get some of my "in process" projects all caught up, and just in time to add some new projects from my October Sew Sampler Box!!     The theme for this month is All You Need is Love and I am so in Love with this month's box!!! 

I was so excited to find 3 Beautiful Lighthearted Charm Packs!! I have sewn with Lighthearted for this Baby Quilt, and I am so looking forward to making this Heart and Soul Quilt as well!!!  I just love Camille's Fabrics, they are always a favorite!!! And you know, I can never have enough Charm Packs, and this month was a Triple Bonus!!! 

And the notions for this month are just so fun!!!! My 3 Girls all want to make the Love Charm Tote!!!  Looks like I will need to get a few more Kit's so they can all sew along ;) Which means, I most likely will need more of the Lighthearted Enamel Charms as they will all want one to go on their tote, so cute!!!   And the Dritz Seam Width Gauge will come in handy while making the tote, so great!!! 

And with all of this quilty goodness . . . I think I have to officially say I won't be making the Pressed Flowers Quilt Along this year!!!!  I am planning to keep all of the patterns so that I can make it at some point because it is just so pretty, but I just can't fit it in right now.  But truly, someday, and now all I have to do is decide on fabric so it bumps it up the someday list, to the "to be cut" list ;) 

And just a note, there are currently some openings for this new years Sew Sampler boxes but they filling up super fast.    

And that is October Sew Sampler Box.  I am so looking forward to November's Box already :)

Happy Quilting!!!

Simply Jelly Roll Quilt Along - Week 7 - Finished!!!

 It's Week 7 of the Simply Jelly Rolls Quilt Along hosted by Fat Quarter Shop.   This week we are finishing things up.   And I am so excited to share this Simply Jelly Rolls Quilt all done!!!  Isn't it just precious ;)    You can download the Week 7 - Finishing Directions Here

 I just love how the Evermore Jelly Roll by Sweetfire Road gave this quilt such a charming vintage look.  I think it fits the sampler just perfectly.   And I am so in love with the 3 color combo it uses!! Such a great way to make those beautiful fabrics shine.  

When it came time to quilt it, I decided to keep with the "vintage" look and do some all over loose feather free motion quilting.  It truly is one of my go-to favorites and I just love all of the movement it gives the quilt.  

Movement, and texture!!  Doesn't all that yummy texture just say "snuggle up with me".  And it got cold here this week, so I have been doing a lot more snuggling in quilts ;)   And this quilt finishes at 80" x 86" so it really gets the job done for snuggling and keeping warm!!! 

And that is my Simply Jelly Roll Quilt.  I had so much fun quilting along with my friends at Fat Quarter Shop!!  Sampler quilts are just so fun as you get to make so many different blocks and use lots of techniques.  This one was just great to make and I am just so happy with the finish!!! 

Even if you didn't join in the quilt along fun, you can still make your own Simply Jelly Roll Quilt!!!  Just check out the Simply Jelly Rolls Quilt Page for all of the patterns and Simply Jelly Roll Quilt Book that you will need to make your own!!    

Thanks for popping in today and sharing this finish with me ;)  Have a Happy Quilting Weekend!!

Spooky Box and Boo! x 2

 It's that time of year . . . when the Annual Spooky Box  arrives!!!    This years box is filled with so much amazing Spooky Quilting Goodness!!!   And I already whipped up the Spooky Project, more on that to come ;)   

I was thrilled to find this super fun Fright Delight petite Rolie Polie.   Halloween for me is all about "cute" Halloween, and these prints are just so fun and adorable!!   And how great is that BOO! Table Runner pattern!!!  Yup, more on that coming soon.   And I know, everyone wants the pattern now, but it is exclusive to the Spooky Box and it is currently out of stock.  But sometimes you can find patterns in this Sew Sampler Swap group on facebook, just fyi ;) 

And the notions that  Fat Quarter Shop sent along this month are just so fun!!!! So here is where I admit, that I am afraid of cats ;)  However, these Black Cat Pins are just so cute :)   As is the Sweetfire Road Needle Minder and Guide Tape.  I will be using it as washi tape because it is just so cute!!! 

And I have more to share from the Spooky Box ;)   I loved that BOO! table runner pattern so much, I just had to whip it up!!  And wouldn't you know, there was just enough squares cut from my Fright Delight petite Rolie Polie to make not 1 table runner but 2!!!  Aren't they just to cute!!! 

I quilted these on my home machine with my walking foot.  This first one I did in a wavy scallop.

And the second one in a loose zig zag.   I love all of the texture they add to it, makes those ghosts look like they are floating ;)

And the first one is now on my kitchen bar and I just love it!!!   I have fun plans for the second one, but I will share more about that on Halloween!!!  

Thanks for popping in and sharing these fun finishes with me!!!

Hope you all have a very Happy (and Spooky) Quilting Day!!!
