Christmas In July Block a thon Quilt Complete
I’m guessing this will be the last ‘dramatic’ Block of the Month and Quilt Along updates for awhile. Apple season is going to be kicking it into full gear here and my sewing time will be cut quite a bit. Regardless – I’m really excited to show off my progress I’ve made in the last couple of weeks. I analyze a lot in the following post so I am going to apologize ahead for my long-windedness
Free Spirit & Rowan Christmas in July Block-a-thon Update
In previous posts I showed you:
Block 1 - ‘Tinsel from Fiberosity’...
Hi everyone! I can’t believe how fast this summer has gone! We’ve gotten both of our older daughter’s teacher assignments and I went ‘Back to School’ clothes shopping for them on Monday. I can’t believe that TWO of them will be in school this year! Even though things are a bit crazy around here I’ve still been plugging away at my Block of the Months and Quilt Alongs. Here’s what I’ve accomplished since the last update:
Now let’s take a look at the newest Quilt Along that I’ve started participating in...
Happy Monday! I’m sorry I’m so late getting this posted! I have a BIG SALE coming up on Sunday that I’m getting ready for and of course – Apple Season is creeping up on us fast than normal so there’s a lot to get done with that. Always something right? Well..I’m not going to make you wait any longer…
Free Spirit has been kind enough to let me giveaway this adorable Dena Designs ‘Pretty Little Things’Charm Pack .
72 comments were made for the giveaway so it’s time for me to head over to random.org and...
Happy Monday everyone! Did you all have a great weekend? My family had a really amazing weekend and I’m sort of sad to even be starting the new week. Oh well – we have lots of fun things planned again this week…just hope the girls are as well behaved as they were!
Anyway – I’ll start today with one fun thing! My original block ‘Presents Under the Tree’ is the block for the ‘Rowan and Free Spirit Christmas in July Block-a-ton’ today!
You need to head over to the Free Spirit Blog to find the directions on how to make...
Happy Tuesday everyone! I tried to get this post out this morning but a shatter jar 1/2 full of applesauce created an unexpected delay in my morning.
Oh well…better late than never for our Quilt Along (QAL) and Block of the Month (BOM) Update!
Fabric Fascination Block of the Month Update
Tonight we’re going to start by looking at the BOM from FabricFascination. Sometime’s BOM’s are nice to just have the fabric all sent already precut for you – and that’s exactly what I’m doing with this one. I’m really loving how these 7...
I’m sure you’ve all realized by now that I LOVE Quilt Alongs! I’m so excited that the first block of the Free Spirit Christmas in July Block-a-thon has been posted! Before I get to revealing my first block I have to share with you the fabrics I pulled for my quilt!
So…I’ve decided that my ‘Christmas’ part of this quilt will just be having this quilt finished – pieced, quilted and bound, by Christmas. The fabrics I chose to use are definitely not Christmas-y – but I’m excited about how it’s going to look out.
I have had a whirlwind last few days that I promise I’ll blogging about soon! But, in the meantime…I want to share with you the upcoming schedule for the Christmas in July Block-A-Thon I mentioned before that I designed a block for! I’ve seen some of the blocks the other designer’s have in store for you all and trust me – you don’t want to miss this one!
Please join me and these other talented bloggers, along with Free Spirit Fabrics, in sewing a fantastic, modern Christmas In July Block-a-Thon!
All the details are on Free...
Happy Thursday everyone! I don’t know how I’m even on the computer still as my brain has gone numb trying to move my blog posts from my old KimsCraftyApple Blog over to my new ‘PersimonDreams blog. I did actually manage to move over my posts from One Beer Mom – now I just have to make my file small enough from KCA… Anyway – I’m here!
Last year, Quilt Dad started Blockapalooza, a sampler block quilt fest of the modern variety. This was the first quilt-along that I participated in and I fell in LOVE with them. This year,...
