Great Granny Sew Along and Book Giveaway!!!

Hello! Welcome to the Great Granny Sew Along! 
Lori Holt of Bee in My Bonnet wrote another wonderful book called Great Granny Squared. We are going to be making a cute sampler called Mama's Crochet Quilt. Additional tips and instructions are provided for the sampler each week.

The PDF for this week's Filled Basket Block is HERE.



I enjoyed making this super cute block! It goes together so nicely. Pulling fabric for this one was fun, too.

I love the theme of the quilt! I enjoy crocheting and I really love the idea of combining the two.

The Great Granny Squared flickr group can be found HERE. Once you make your Filled Basket Block, upload a picture to the group to be entered into a giveaway for a pair of  Sullivan's 4" Heirloom Embroidery Scissors and a pack of Clover Point Protectors.

You will also need a copy of Lori's book. You can purchase it HERE and

*** I am also giving away a copy right here on my blog. Just leave a comment below and I'll pick a winner Wednesday~April 23, 2014 and have it shipped to you in time to make the Filled Basket Block and be ready for next week's block!!!


HERE is a list of the blocks and bloggers for each week!

Have fun!!!


Happy Sewing!

☆ Country Girls Stars Quilt ☆

Last week I finished this Country Girls mini quilt I made for my girls' room. I've been wanting to post about it since then but we all have been under the weather at our house. Sore throats and stomach bugs. Yuck. I hope we are on the mend. My mom is visiting and should be here today! I told her maybe she shouldn't come but she wouldn't hear of it. I hope she doesn't get sick. I've Lysoled, bleached, Purelled my heart out, so I'm hoping we're good.

Anyway, I am loving this mini!!! I fussy-cut the Country Girls from this fabric. Then I used some Country Girls fabric along with some others from Tasha Noel. All of which I got from Shay at Simply Sweet Fabric.  I added some Strawberry Fields, April Showers, Scrumptious and Flea Market Fancy. The colors all went well together and I love the scrappy look.

I hand quilted around each star and that was all. I may add more quilting around the edge near the binding and in the space where the four corners of the blocks meet. I just haven't yet. I love the center block. The little girl feeding the ducks reminded my 4 year old of herself feeding her ducks. She loves the quilt and can't wait to have it on her wall. I have to paint first. I hope to do that while my mom visits. We shall see :)

Have a great weekend! Stay healthy...wash your hands!!!

Happy Sewing!
