Sew Much Fun!

Recently I had an opportunity to do a pattern test for a designer I’ve really enjoyed getting to know by seeing some of her sweet blocks on another blogger’s site. Thanks Wendy 😉)

I pulled some fabrics from my scrap bins that might work.

I printed my pattern, read it over twice and then started cutting my fabrics.

This pattern was well written and easy to follow. With our crazy winter weather and the rapidly changing barometric pressure, I have been experiencing migraines almost every day but thought that I’d just play with fabric to distract myself. I finished this block in just a couple of hours.

I was so very upset because it came out the wrong finished size. 😢. I went back to the pattern and realized that the problem was all my doing. I had turned one piece the wrong way and with my head being wonky, I hadn’t noticed.

I cut some new fabric, starched and pressed it and in two hours from start to finish redid my block.

Next up:

My Samantha saw this in Sandra’s shop and chattered non stop until I agreed to make it for her. 😉

For these patterns (and more) please go visit Sandra’s site Sandra Healy Designs. There is sure to be something there to tempt you in to starting a new project.

I have been fondling fabric and creating things with fabric and fiber for as long as I can remember. My children had homemade clothes, blankets, canning and quilts most of their lives. Now I create goodies to share! Hope you enjoy viewing them as much as I enjoy making them! When I am not creating with fiber or fabric I keep busy with Dear Heart, kids, grandkids, great grandkids.
