Where Flowers Bloom Grows Today At Seams To Be Sew… from Seams To Be Sew

Today is a fun blog hop hosted by Carla at Creatin In The Sticks. The idea of this hop is that we should have a flower somewhere in our project… It can be in the fabric print itself, the pattern, the quilting, or maybe even a project shaped like a flower. When it comes to flowers, my favorite flower has always been Lilacs. I absolutely love the smell of lilacs, the pretty purple, pink and white colors I’ve seen them in and I love that they grow in a bush type shape.  I haven’t done lilacs for you ...

When You Wish Upon A Star, You May Get A Hero… from Seams To Be Sew

Today I am participating in the Wish Upon A Star blog hop hosted by Carol at Just Let Me Quilt. Her fun idea says our project needs to include a star somewhere in the project. With this hop, I thought about what I could do carefully, and when you see it, hopefully, you’ll agree, it’d be great for Memorial Day, Father’s Day or even the 4th of July… I’ll be releasing the pattern tomorrow morning along with another cute little pattern I’ve done for the 4th of July. In the meantime, enjoy my project for ...

X-Blocks Comes To Seams To Be Sew Today… from Seams To Be Sew

Hi Everyone, I have a fun new project for you today featuring the X-Blocks ruler. When I saw all of the most irresistible patterns that you can make with these rulers I jumped at the chance to participate in this blog hop. I know I’ve said in the past that I dislike specialty rulers, but sometimes a specialty ruler can do more than just one pattern type and I’m always happy to have the options available to me in that respect. With these rulers, I definitely see the potential possibilities with even taking old blocks you may have ...

Welcome To My Day on the IB Use it Up Hop… from Seams To Be Sew

Today I’ve chosen to make a small project for this hop. It is a machine embroidery in the hoop design using Island Batiks and fleece. The design is created entirely in the hoop except for the small buttons and bows you use to attach the add-ons. I didn’t make the addons because I intend to create my own which I just haven’t had the time to do as yet, but the project is done and ready for them to be done, so when I have some time I’ll get them done.  I’ve also created a ...
