Fresh Sewing Day and Small Blog Meet

So on the first of every month, here at, we have a linky party to show off anything you've made or worked on (or even fabric you've bought) during the previous month.  There is a second linky party to help small blogs meet and connect with other blogs.  You'll find a few new blogs to follow and hopefully build up the network around your blog and gain some new followers too.  I have two favourite projects from this month both quilts I've made for Makower.  For anyone who doesn't know, Makower are a UK fabric company who work alongside Andover in the US.  When they have new lines coming out, I design quilts to show off those lines and which are then available as a free download on the Makower website.  This month I designed and made quilts using the Oriental...

 ... and Lime Fizz fabric lines.

And what about you?  What have you worked on this month?  Any finishes?  Maybe a mosaic of everything you've been doing?  One favourite thing?  Link up at the bottom of this post to share what you've been working on. If you do link up, how about visiting at least four of the other blogs who link up - two above you and two below you - and stopping to leave a comment as well as visiting back anyone who visits you.  As always here's the button to grab - a brand shiny new one this month to reflect the new blog header!

And link up in the second linky if you are a blog with fewer than 50 followers and would like to get to know a few more people out there in blogland. Write a post about this feature, add this button and then link up.  Next go and visit and get to know at least four other linked blogs - starting with the two above you in the linkys and the two below you. Visit those blogs, leave a comment, click to follow and visit that blog regularly over the next few weeks. Visit more if you have the time. And also visit back any new bloggers who come to visit you and get to know them and their blogs.

Now a warning.  My old linky service has just started charging so I've hunted around this morning for a replacement and have no idea if this one works so bear with me and let me know if it doesn't!




  1. Success! I've linked up, looks like the new service is working great!

  2. I am still working on my hexies and just taken a photo of it spread out so the timing was good for your 1st of month post, I love both of your quilts.

  3. Two gorgeous quilts!

    P.S. Linky seems to be working fine, thank you!

  4. Very pretty quilts. Unfortunately I can't show what I've been working on as it is a future Moda Bake Shop feature but I like to see what others have been up to.


Comment away peeps :-)
