I am super excited to be a part of the Winter Wonderland Sew Along.
The Winter Wonderland Sew Along is the Sleigh Bell Sampler.
Each week you make two of these adorable blocks!!!
If you have just discovered this sew along, the book can be purchased at the Fat Quarter Shop.
Sherri asked me to participate while we chatted at quilt market this spring.
I thought...I will have plenty of time to make a block or project.
Um, I think you know where this is going....
My Block is #5 the Wreath.
I gathered my fabrics including Ella Blue's basics
red tone on tone stripe, green cross hatch
and Lecien basic white with aqua dots.
Cutting was simple...small pieces for sure with some 1" x 1"!
I adore how my block turned out.
Sherri is sharing the block construction on her blog here.
A few commented that my block was constructed incorrectly.
I frogged it at 7 am and re-stitched it.
While I was stitching the block I had a ton of trouble with my sewing machine.
I was frustrated.
I guess I wasn't paying attention to my block placement.
I thought for sure I would have had time yesterday to quilt it and bind it.
That didn't happen.
I was unpacking fabric bolts and cutting a bunch of bundles.
To help you get started or continue your sew along,
I'm giving away a fat eighth bundle of the new Ella Blue basics - 37 prints!
Just leave a comment on this post.
I will draw on August 17,2015.
thanks for reading ;)
