Good morning! January is behind us and this week the weather here will be wonderful. This doesn't mean we won't get more snow but for now I am counting my blessings of warmer weather for a few days.
This time of year I am in the mood to sew up something cheerful and springy. I have been wanting to sew my Gingham Stars quilt in some fun fabrics and now is the time! I am going to be doing it as a sew along over the next several weeks and I would love it if you would join me.
You will need your favorite fabrics and the Holiday Wishes. I know this is a Christmas book but I guarantee that the quilt will look great in any style fabric!
If you need the book, check with your local quilt shop or I also have it in my Etsy shop with free shipping.
Here is my test block in the fabrics I have chosen~
I like to do a test block before I cut up all my fabrics to make sure I like the placement of them. You don't have to do this, its just my way of making sure the colors pop the way I want them too. I will use this block in the quilt but sometimes I will use my test block as a mini wall hanging or pillow to go with my quilt.
Will you be joining me? I would love to see your project as we sew along together. You are welcome to post your fabrics and projects on my Facebook page or better yet, join my Facebook group Sweet Stitchin with This & That. I will also be posting on Instagram and will be using the hashtag #ginghamstarssewalong.
So grab your book and fabrics and get ready to start cutting with me!
