Let's Book It - January 2015


Wow - didn't this month go by so fast?  It's hard to believe it is already that time for the linky party.  Remember, you don't have to be finished and if you have a large project you can carry it over into as many months you need.  AND I hope it is working right, but I upgraded my InLinkz to include photos.  I think it helps draw people to your blog if they get a 'tease' photo.



This was my project for the month - long ago printed off and hanging on the wall just waiting to be played with.  I really think it was waiting for this fabric to be honest.



The cutting went really quickly once I got started on this project.



As well as the sewing part - why did I wait so long to play with this?



If you remember the laying out was a challenge due to 2 fun loving furry helpers.



And the top is complete!  This is only 51.5" square which is just too small.  So I have to think on borders - yes I hate borders, but this needs borders or maybe I'll pick up another layer cake and make more blocks - that sounds better.

This is a free pattern on Me and My Sister Designs called 'Ground Cover'.  You could easily make it from your own scraps or yardage.  Have an ugly large floral - perfect for this.  Cuts up quickly, sews up quickly, and looks fab together - a super charity quilt pattern. 


  

This year the charm pin is the cute vintage sewing machine and January's charm in Sunbonnet Sue - a great vintage block to start the year off with. 

Now it is your turn to share:


Sewingly Yours,
Sharon

  8. Adding a photo to the link-party really does make clicking on a link much more tempting! Great idea :) I'll spend half an hour now and get clicking!

  11. My project was such a little thing, but truly was on my want to do list for way too long (years!). Thanks for the incentive Sharon, mine is small but it is totally done and it was the tip of the iceberg for getting even more other bits finished this month. Thanks.

  12. Your ground cover looks really nice. Ah borders..., that's nothing for a quilter like yourself. Get to it girl. LOL

  14. You're so funny, you'd rather pick up another layer cake than make borders :) I knew you didn't like them but now I wonder if you were bit by a border when you were young.

  15. lol! :D I love it - sounds so much like myself, picking up another layer cake. You'll get that border, though, and most likely it'll turn out not being as much a chore as it seemed. Usually that happens, anyway - sometimes not. . . hehe
