Marti Michell very generously sent all the Farmer's Wife 1930's Sampler Quilt Sew-along Bloggers all the sets we would need to make the quilt and so I started using them. I love that you can use the sets separately or combine them to create all kinds of beautiful patterns. It was a so generous of Marti and her company and I am very grateful.Marti Michell Mini Quilt Blog Hop - GnomeAngelThe idea for the mini quiltmania was dreamed up by Angie of Gnome Angel to help the people in the Facebook group (26) Farmer's Wife 1930's Sampler Quilt Sew-along learn new ways to use the templates.

Sewing to Relax

When was the last time it was you, the sewing machine and Aurifil! With everything in the news we should all take a few minutes for ourselves and relax. Take a dark piece of fabric some nifty colored Aurifil. I chose #5007, it looks gray on the spool but comes out "Ice Blue". Beautiful color, like all the different shades of Aurifil thread!What you need to get started - piece of fabric, piece of batting, 50 wt thread and your sewing machine.Then just start picking stitches from your machine. You will find some take awhile and others just zip down the road. Hopefully, this will take your mind off of all the problem in the world. It has really helped me this morning. It doesn't take a lot of thinking and it is good practice. Almost every machine has at least 15 different stitches. Use the completed project in a pillow.The Orlando Modern Quilt Guild is collecting heart blocks and quilts for the victims and the families. You can go here to find out moreOrlando Modern Q…
