I hope you enjoyed seeing all of the Busy Work quilts as much as I did!! 
And now....for the winner of the Fat Eighth bundle of my
Heart of the Prairie fabric collection.......the random number generator

Sylke from Norway!

Congratulations, Sylke!!!  Please email your address to me and
I will send your fabric to you right away! 


Here's a few tid-bits about my next Pocket Patchwork sew-along.....

Presently, I am sewing the blocks to test the yardage I've calculated.  I learned a lot from
my last sew-along, and want to give you some time to choose your fabrics
and the yardage needed.  Once I'm sure about the yardage, I'll give you a peek
at the fabrics, and give all of the pertinent yardage information.

The name of the next Pocket Patchwork sew-along is.....

Forget Me Not

Forget Me Not is a sampler quilt with 12 blocks and two more assembly parts. 
I have a dilemma.  I've heard from many of you that you've enjoyed receiving
one block every Friday, and it was very do-able in your schedule. 
I feel the same way, however, if I post just one block a week,
our sew-along will take 14 weeks to complete! 

Is that too long?? 

Or....should I post two blocks a week?  That means the sew-along will take 8 weeks to complete but will double your work.  The block size is 4.5 inches finished and
some blocks have a bit more work in them than the others.

I've posted a Pocket Patchwork Sew-along Poll at the top of my blog. 
Please cast your vote!
Majority will decide how long it will take!


My heartfelt thanks to everyone who sent in pictures of their
Busy Work quilts for all to enjoy!


P.S.  In preparation for my next sew-along, the very best way to receive your sew-along pattern instructions are via email.  To do this, subscribe to my blog by entering your email address in the Follow by Email icon, in the right column of my blog.  You'll receive the blog post as an email where you can easily print the instructions each week and work on your block.  Oh...and invite your friends to sew-along with us!  The more the merrier!!


  1. Oh just lovely!! Look how many New Yorkers! Congratulations to the winner and thank you for hosting.

  2. Another wonderful parade! Love to see all the variations of the same project. Congrats to the winner...nice to see someone from so far away be the winner! Looking forward to the next Quiltalong!

  3. Printed the pattern for this but ran out of time. It's on "my list," though.
    Thanks for the wonderful parade and the pattern. Congrats to the winner.

  4. Congrats to the winner. Each one of these is a pleasure to look at. Wish I could finish mine!

    1. Oh, now I really feel pressure to at least finish this one...I'm from New York!

  5. I have so enjoyed seeing others finished quilts. I had high hopes to have mine done, very soon. I took it along to finish while we were camping last week and left just a few of the border pieces at home.

    Looking forward to the next one. If the blocks are small, I think I can handle two a week. I cast my vote and will await the results.

  6. Thank you so much, Pam! I'm really glad to win some of your beautiful fabrics, it's fantastic - don't find words to express my happiness... :) I've send you an e-mail with my adress!

    Looking forward to your next sew along, Pam!
