Wrapping Up A Productive Week!

Alphabet Song ~ designed by Shawn Williams for Threads That Bind
I've had a very productive week this week.  I love when that happens.  All too often, I feel like I've worked and worked but don't really see progress.  I do make progress, of course, but not always in a very tangible form. 

I've been able to work at my sewing machine early in the morning on a quilt I'm making (slowly but surely!) for a magazine submission.  I've stitched in the evening on a variety of things like the wool sampler in the photo above, which has only been a WIP for four years now!  I put the last stitches in it, so now I can have it framed!  Yay!
Tin Pinkeep & Fabric Ball ~ Designed by Pam Buda for Heartspun Quilts
I've also been making more English Paper Pieced fabric balls.   The red one in the photo above is made using the reds from my newest collection, A Prairie Gathering.  I've begun to make one using the lights from the collection, too.  They look so darn cute in the vintage Jell-O tin, don't they?!  The pattern, called Tin Pinkeep, is available as a kit which includes the pattern, pentagon papers, and the vintage Jell-O tin (fabric not included).  You can order one here.

You know it's Friday, and that means that another block has been posted on our Friends & Companions Marcus Designer Sew-Along!  It's Sarah Maxwell's turn.  She is one half of the design team of Homestead Hearth.  Click here to read her blog post and get her block info!  

And just one more reminder......please send me a photo of your 
Market Day Sew-Along quilt for the....

Airing of the Quilts!
Your quilt does not have to be quilted!  We all want to see what fabrics you used and how it all turned out.  

Pictures have been coming to me from all over....it's going to be so much fun!!  Please email your photo as soon as you can.  Email to Pam@HeartspunQuilts.com with the photo as an attachment.  
Enjoy your weekend!


  1. Your work is so lovely. This inspires me to organize my fabric and put some of my projects together.

  2. Alphabet song is so cute!
    I hope to get my Market Day SAL quilted this weekend and then I'll send a photo!

  3. Your alphabet song appliqué is lovely. A great design. Also the fabric ball, what a wonderful idea.
