It's Fresh Sewing Day today

Sponsored by Sew Fresh Fabrics, this will be a regular spot on the first of every month where you show something you've been working on that month that's made you happy.  It could be a finished quilt or it could just be a pile of fabrics and an idea.  Add a link using the linky at the bottom to a post and put this button in your blogpost.  To do that, copy the text in the box underneath the button, go to your blogpost, click on the "Edit HTML" tab at the top of the text box, paste the copied text into your blogpost and then go back to "compose" and, voila, the button will be there.  And what I'd like you all to do it to visit as many of the links as you can and leave comments so a bit of bloglove is shared around.  And one link will be picked for a feature on my blog.

  1. ooh...I'm the first one! At least I think I am! I'm going to go backwards. I'm a follower. I will have the Sew Fresh Fabrics button on my blog within days...but alas. Not yet. Doh!

  2. I'm a follower! And actually I think *I* was first! hee! I was going to choose my DQS10 quilt but this smock made me the most happy because it was for my kiddo who loves it.

    ReplyDelete
  3. And as for bundles, it's Lynne's Blender Bundle FTW!

    ReplyDelete
  4. My favorite bundle is

    Patty Young Sanctuary Citrus Scrub with Kona Bundle

    yum!

    ReplyDelete
  5. Having never done a linky before I think I missed the part where I describe the link, which is kind of important because all I linked to was the fabrics I've used (along with some others) to make a quilt for my nephew's wedding in the middle of April. I can't show the quilt on my blog because he and his bride are regular readers. I'll post a photo after the wedding. But these are the fabrics and the pattern used is Geese in the Park from the Moda Bake Shop. I think it looks FABULOUS!

    And my shop fabrics of choice are the very popular "blender bundle" of fat quarters. I'm a newish quilter so I'm in great need of stash builders.
