Thank you so much to everyone who commented on our Sewing for ME and A Giveaway post! Congratulations to Nancy N., our randomly selected winner. She will receive the Mini Quilts Booklet and a Cotton + Steel Fat Quarter Sampler as a prize!
It was Mother’s Day this past weekend which happened to coincide with me reaching a point where I needed to sew (do) something for myself. It’s not that I haven’t been sewing; it’s that everything I’ve been sewing has either been for work or for a Row Robin Mini I’m in. Don’t get me wrong – I love sewing for both. The Row Robin has especially been a lot of fun lately. The problem is all the things I’m sewing for work are for future projects so I can’t share them and I won’t get them back for months. The Row Robin Minis I’m working on can’t be shared because then the people that will eventually end up with will see them and I won’t get my finished Mini until August.
Life is BUSY, there is all kinds of mayhem (see pictures of some of the mayhem below…yes, the dog is currently sporting a cone of shame – double mayhem) going on constantly, both with work and personally (on top of it all I caught ANOTHER cold).
Sometimes you have to stop and do something for the pure fun of it. Friday was that day for me. I was still consistently blowing my nose so I couldn’t even go to my regularly scheduled Quilt Group meeting (I didn’t want to get any of them sick). Instead, I pulled out my Mini Quilts book by Cluck Cluck Sew and picked a project. I decided on the SEW mini quilt, pulled out some of my Cotton + Steel fabrics, and away I went. It was just what the Doctor ordered, quick, fun & easy! I had it done from start to finish in just a few hours.
SEW Mini from Mini Quilts Book
Warning: these minis are addictive! After I finished SEW I started pulling fabrics from my stash for Ziggy Baby Mini, Buttoned Up, and Pow-Wow. Eventually I’d love to have them all on my wall joining my Dwell Mini and Spools Mini, both patterns by Thimble Blossoms.
Do you need some inspiration for a wall of minis for yourself? Well you are in luck! One lucky winner will receive a copy of the book Mini Quilts and a bundle of Cotton + Steel fabrics.
