SEWjo Saturday 2 ( winner announced)

Good morning!  I was hoping to have this up earlier.  We had a spend the night and this girlie is not accustomed to two more kidlets in the house.  The six year old set decided sometime in the night to go watch tv and I found them at 5am on the sofa, sitting straight up, ALSEEP! Kids crack me up!

I hope you all have had a great week and are going to have a productive sewing weekend!  All of your posts were so motivational.  I was inspired all week to get something completed.  It was very cool, thank you :o)

I joined  The Sisterhood of the Traveling Quilt and my block was due in January( I am a bit late).  I always over think bee blocks.  I always over think everything but especially bee blocks.  I finally decided last weekend that I knew the PREFECT blocks to make...



From the book Vintage Quilt Revival by Katie Clark Blakesley, Faith Jones and Lee Heinrich I found the Rosey Windows Quilt.  Katie had talked about this quilt and when she asked the question " What could you do differently?"  My first thought was FUSSY CUT!



So, I did :o) I fussy cut some sweet Heather Ross and Munki Munki bits to make these wonderfully easy, very colorful blocks for my traveling quilt block.



and TA DA! 








This week, to enhance MOTIVATION,  I am giving away a mini set.  There are four mini charm packs and a mini Omnigrid kit ( how cute is that set).  I will choose a random winner from the link ups! 







Let's get our SEWjo (sewing mojo) going!  This link up will be open from Saturday through Sunday to give you LOTS of time in case you need to do silly other stuff like make dinner or driving your kids somewhere and then there is always making sure you have good lighting. The things we all have to go through...sigh ;o)

To participate in the party please... 
1. Share a project from this past week or TODAY!!! Link it up from your blog or, if you do not have a blog, your Flickr photos. It can be a  FABULOUS finish or a WIP ( any progress is always good)that you are working hard to get off your sewing table!

2. Share a link back to SEWjo Saturday somewhere in your post. I would be over the moon if you grabbed the button and shared that too ;o)

3. Share some love with some of the other posters!!!!  Visit some of the linked up photos and get inspired by other quilty friends' work. And please leave some sunshine in their comments! Let's support each other! 






Thank you everyone SO MUCH for linking up again!  Again I am amazed at you talent and appreciate your contributions!!!!  I look forward to seeing you all again next week :o)

I don't have a Blog or a Flicker account. Too bad I can't link it to Facebook. I'm hardly ever NOT in the middle of a project. I have 2 quilts going right now. You've inspired me to run out and get a bolt of gray fabric. Always looks so nice tying in the different colors

Kelli said...

Oh my goodness, love the bright colors and the fussy cutting! :) And what a fun prize!

Marci Girl said...

Love the bright blocks plus the touch of fussy cutting! I also like the bigger pictures with the linky party, much easier to see what is linked up!

Lovely blocks!
Not sure which is funnier, the kids or you saying they were 'ALSEEP'!

Flying Blind... said...

Oh, and the 'PREFECT' blocks ;)

Katy Cameron said...

Oooh, fab blocks! As for the kids, well they do say 'never work with children and animals'... ;o)
