Favorite New Book & Market Day Sew~Along Start Date!

At dear friend Tara Lynn Darr's book, Small Treasures from Scraps, the long awaited sequel to her first book, Simply Charming is finally out!!  Like her first book, the Small Treasures from Scraps book features doll sized projects that are clever and delightful quilts to make from scraps and 5 inch squares you have on hand......scraps you have just laying around waiting to be made into something wonderful.  There are fourteen wonderful projects waiting for you.  Bet ya cant' make just one!!!   Click here to order the book or look for it at your local quilt shop. 

My Prairie Stitches fabric has arrived at the house, we've got all the kits cut, and we're in the process of shipping them all out.  That takes a few days in and of itself.  My family thinks my mail man hates me from having to haul so many packages from my doorstep all the time.  Sorry, mail man, but we're talking about fabric here.....fabric that has to go out to people all over the world!  Now that I know when everyone will have the fabric kits, I can set the date for the sew~along to begin.  And that day will be........

Friday, April 25th!
I'll post the first block instructions that day and we'll finally be sewing together.  I really do love this quilt, and I'm pretty sure you're gonna love it too!  

The blocks are pretty basic, and to shake things up a bit, I will be offering you a challenge.  Will you be up for it??  Have I got you thinking??  

To be sure you won't miss a week of instructions, the very best way to participate in the sew~along is to get my blog posts via email.  To do this, simply enter your email address in the "Follow by Email" icon found on the right hand side bar of my blog.  You will receive a verification email from Feedburner.  You must verify your subscription with them, which is simply to click on the link they provide.  Once that's done you're all set.

Getting my blog posts via email will also allow you to save all the sew-along instructions in a folder which is especially helpful if you can't sew-along with us right now.

  1. I have made 6 of the quilts in Tara's Simply Charming, and this book is on my wishlist! But I am on a book buying diet, so I am hoping someone will want to get it for me for Mother's Day. : )
    Looking forward to Market Day. I will be out of town that day and will have company for a while afterward, so I may be one of those saving the instructions for later, but I am definitely going to join in when I can. Can't wait!

  2. Woohoo - counting down the days!! Thanks Pam :-)
