Round up of 2019 Blog Hops + Sew Alongs

Time to ring in the New Year with sewing projects that will bring us great joy! Although we all have numerous projects that we may have not finished in 2018 the "Out with the old and in with the new!" feeling happens every year!

You will want to dig into your favorite fabrics or go shopping for something new ( like we need an excuse) to participate in some or all of these events!

In 2019 there is a plethora of fun Block of the Month and Quilt Alongs that will keep you entertained, engaged and inspired for the entire year!

Some of these are free and some are for a fee.  I separated the groups for you to find the ones that are the best fit for you. They are all incredible! 

In 2019 not all of the BOM, Sew Alongs and Quilt Alongs are hosted on blogs, there are some that will be in Facebook Groups and others prodomenently on Instagram. 

Go through all of the options and find the ones that you will enjoy the most! 


These options are come as you are and ready to sew.  Threadology is in this catagory because the patterns are free with a request for donation ( good cause and 100% of the proceeds are matched and given to Make A Wish).

2018 Monthly Color Challenge



These options require you to purchase a pattern, a membership, or a book to participate

Quick Diagonal Pintuck Pouch

Fabric manipulation is a source of joy for me. Taking a flat piece of raw material and creating something with texture and depth is...well...just really cool!

Saturday I took a break from my sewing room. I cleaned house ( it was WAY NEEDED), exercised, chopped wood, uprooted acorns from the walking path that had taken root, and cooked. I did not step into my sewing room for the entire day. This never happens!

It was lovely!

When I awoke this morning, I was a little sore and completely inspired. Here is my result.


It started with a 10 in square from a layer cake that I had by Wenche Wolff Hatling from Northern Quilts for Moda Fabrics. 

Diamond pin tucking was just a must! There was absolutely zero plan other than it had to be pin tucked!


After it was pintucked, which took less time than I had anticipated, I put it to one side to think about what it would become. A Christmas ornament came to mind, but then that idea was tossed for a pouch. 

A pouch made perfect sense for this small square of awesomeness. 

With no pattern, I just started making. It was delightful to go with the flow. 

There was only once that Jack was in hand the entire time. There was no fretting over finishing today, but it happened anyway. 

The texture is fabulous, the pouch itself is finished looking and a great size. 

Overall, I am calling this experience a WIN! 

Range free sewing is pretty cool!
