Crazy Busy Couple Of Weeks In My Sewing World Recap

It's been such a crazy busy couple of weeks in my sewing world, but it has been so fun!
There was a lot of overlapping of posts with same day was totally crazy.
I thought I'd do a little recap with links.

I'm so lucky to work with Therm O Web (love their products, really I do!) and this week
was no exception. I got to design four blocks for their Halloween Chills and Thrills sew along.
So exciting! The patterns are free so be sure to grab them and get busy sewing. There
will be instructions for a table runner at Therm O Web September 24th to put them all together.

Creatin' in the Sticks had the "My Favorite Block" blog hop much inspiration!
Carla is the best blog hop partner! We alternate months, which makes it easy on both of us.
I'm lucky to have her and all those amazing bloggers who jump in to share it!

I'm a huge fan of the Dresden block, so I shared my project and a few other Dresden's I've made.
You can find my post and the list of other blog hoppers HERE.

Marian at Seams To Be Sew has her fifth row along happening and I've been a part of all five.
This time it was called "Once Upon A Story" and we all shared a block of a favorite nursery
rhyme, story, or song. I picked "Five Little Monkeys Jumping On The Bed" for my block.
I think it had something to do with the Monkey Boys in my life that made me pick that one!
You can find my block and links to the other blocks in my post HERE.

Those Monkey Boys have so much energy and keep me smiling. 
They had fun at the park during some project photo taking. The loved that water!

Sewing for Riley Blake is another of my favorite things to do. I'm really lucky and I know it.
They make it so easy and let me sew whatever pops into my head using their fabric.
Since there's a lot of crazy ideas in my head, it's a ton of fun!

This week was "Caught Red Handed" with "Cops and Robbers" fabric.
You can find that post HERE.

Sewing is definitely an uplifting and inspiring hobby that makes me feel blessed to be a part of.
I'm grateful to all of you who teach me new things and inspire me with what you make.
You rock my world!

I'm also grateful for Heat n Bond EZ Print Sheets and Aurifil Thread. 
They truly make my applique projects easier!

Heat n Bond EZ Print Lite Sheets – You’ll love these for applique because they are so easy. 
Just run the sheets through your inkjet printer and they are ready for ironing on your fabric.

Aurifil Thread – This thread is amazing for sewing. The applique blocks in these projects were 
sewn using 28 wt thread, but 40wt or 50wt works, too. Use the 50wt thread for sewing seams.


  1. I'm so sorry you haven't had any time to play! hahahaha
    You have rocked the quilt world this week my friend, and we are all loving it!

  2. What makes me grateful this morning is that YOU are grateful for your many blessings. There aren't many blogs where I read that, and it warms my heart to know that you are mindful of, and grateful for, all that your Heavenly Father gives you. He has given you abundant talent, and you share it so generously. Those are two more of my blessings! Thank you for this post and the adorable pictures of your monkey boys.

  3. I don't know how you keep up, but a lot of the reason is your love for the art of quilting. It is a blessing to be able to do what we love and to be grateful for it. Thanks for all you share--your creativity inspires the rest of us.

  4. You are amazing and all these projects are too. You are my rock and roll in the quilt world, my friend.

  5. The Halloween blocks and Cops and Robbers are such fun, Carol! Love the expressions, specially Frankie’s and the bulldog's. The Dresden quilt is amazing. Beautiful colours and design. Good fun inspirations you had for Five Little Monkeys :D

    A fabulous fun set!!
