The Tula Pink City Sampler Sew Along will officially close on January 31st. We have seen so many amazing blocks these past 7 months, and I am so happy to see so many of you following along! You have plenty of time to catch up on any missed blocks or piece your quilt top. To be fair to those who have been participating, the prizes will be eligible to those who complete at least 60 blocks from the book. You can piece them in any way you wish (it doesn’t necessarily have to be a layout from the book). read more
So, if you are sewing along at home, be sure to link up ONLY blocks 52, 53, and 54 in this post (you will have time to link up your other blocks in future posts). Please link up separately for each block. As a reminder, you can link to your blog post, Flickr, or wherever else you are hosting your pictures. You must link up here on this post in order to be eligible for the monthy prize, to be awarded on September 31st! read more
Emily – Can you believe it? We’re halfway already!!
Block 49 was a breeze! I had to double check before I stitched each seam on the triangles so that the ‘tear drops’ would line up across the block but it wasn’t too tricky. Obviously I fussy cut the corner blocks and I love the way they turned out. I used Hushabye and Acacia for this block. read more
I’m incredibly excited to announce the Tula Pink City Sampler Sew Along! I have been eagerly awaiting the release of this book since last October; at that time, I was desperately searching for the right sampler quilt project for me. The Farmer’s Wife quilt along somehow passed me by, and although I have had a Dear Jane quilt on my to-do list for quite some time, I think I had to face facts and admit that I did not have it in me to commit to a project of that scope. read more

On favorite projects: “They are all my favorites while I’m working on them, I’m fickle that way. However, to answer your question, a recent favorite is this purse I made for my friend Julie. See attached photo. I had the Lizzy Dish fabric in my stash and she purchased the fabric. it’s Kokka Ruby Star Shining line by Melody Miller and it represents her very first fabric crush.”

Just about everyone has a little bit of Amy Butler…a pattern, some fabric. Or if you don’t, you’ve probably at least heard of her. This sew along was originally supposed to be for the new Amy Butler Spice Market Tote, a great beginner-friendly pattern. But, I have decided to change it up a little bit. BTW, if you’re participating in the Two Peas Madison Bag Sew Along, don’t forget that you have until Friday to finish and link up your bag! read more
