Dreaming of Strawberries - FREE Pattern! from Pat Sloan's Blog

For our Button club project this month I'm ready for spring! 

Pat Sloan Button March Button club Pic 4

The Fat Quarter Shop button box this month has a theme of 'Grow'. With my daffodils coming up and buds on the trees, I'm really in spring mode, even if my Virginia weather throws me a curve ball of a cold day, my heart is already for spring!

When the Cheeky fabric arrived the other day i KNEW this fabric needed to be used soon!

Usually in February or March we have been down south for either an event or a little R&R.  This year neither ...

Several of them!

After making the purple one I spotted these at the store. We were going out of town or I would have bought them, and today they didn't have them again. But this is what I'm loving, purple tulips!

I think I'll be back to the store tomorrow to see if they have the purple tulips again.

Lola pouch ~ swap from Charm About You



Honestly swaps make me a bit nervous, what if the recipient judges my sewing or worse doesn't like what I've made for them. There have been occasions where I haven't taken part in swaps because of time constraints but then I feel left out. Knowing I could focus on one small make, I jumped in to join the pouch swap for the Purple Stitches Sewcial Retreat which was this past weekend. 
Despite the worries, it's actually made easy when you join a swap as very often you are asked what you like / dislike and you are ...

A wonderful Free Aurifil Block and all mine together from Pat Sloan's Blog

I love the Aurifil Designer of the month day. What I love is getting to know each designer. March is Sedef Imer who is from Down Grapevine Lane. Once you read her interview you'll know why she selected that as her business name! This is my 9th year hosting and I'm inspired each month. Let's get to it!

Each year I pick a theme and give the designer a set of color criteria for their challenge block. Then I interview the monthly designer at the Aurifil  blog.

And each month share your block at the Aurifil interview ...

Spring Fling quilt from Charm About You

spring fling quilt by Lucy Brennan | Charm About You

I'm so lucky that I get to have SO MUCH FUN creating designs with bright and beautiful fabric. For this quilt I picked out prints from Zuma by Tula Pink and a range of colours from Tula Pink solids.  A classic block in the centre and medallion style borders made with a mix of regular machine piecing and foundation paper piecing, make for a modern and dynamic quilt. My Spring Fling quilt pattern is in Issue 71 of Love Patchwork & Quilting - out now!

The detail in the prints is just amazing, there's so many that I thought were ...

I Am Enough Quilt Along Top Finish from A Ditchin' Time Quilts


Finally finished this quilt top!  I have loved making all the squares. I am using all my mom's old fabric from her stash that I inherited when she passed away.  Every time I look at this quilt it reminds me of her.  It reminds me of all the things she made of these fabrics.  It gives me such happiness to see this come together.  

Check out Havel's Sewing Blog for their wonderful sewing tools and batting! There you can find this pattern, designed by Melanie from Southern Charm Quilts. Just such fun! Details here!
