Featuring Sew Me a Song and a give away


Today I have a wonderful give away from my sponsor Becca at Sew Me a Song. Look at the beautiful bundle of Japanese fabrics by Yuwa, Lecien and Diawabo - they are just perfect for a spring quilt.

For those of you who don't know Becca's shop, I encourage you to go and have a look around - you can go now, but come back to enter the giveaway. She curates the most amazing collection of unusual Japanese and other fabrics, most of which I don't see at the other shops.

I asked Becca a bit about herself. She began in the online fabric business with Peg as part of Sew Fresh Fabrics, but then her family moved to Maine. Becca's response was to start a new fabric shop and Sew Me a Song was born. Becca made a clear decision with Sew Me a Song to stock unusual and quirky fabrics not found in other shops. I sure think she has done that.

Becca connects with the online community through instagram and twitter (she is @sewmeasong) and she is a quilt guild member. She is excited to be expanding her shop space and is hoping to set up some in person sewing time there in the near future. I sure wish I lived closer to her so I could drop in.


To win that fantastic bundle - thank you Becca - all you need to do is leave me a comment - please stick to one comment per person. Tell me something that you would love to see on my blog or what you like to shop for online or what is making you smile today.

I will draw the winner randomly on Sunday morning when I wake up, get your comments in by then. And please make sure I can contact you. A number of you leave no-reply blogger comments on my blog all the time, and it is too bad because if you connected an email to your profile I would send you an email (probably late, but eventually it would come) in reply to your comments (except for giveaways as there are just too many for me to keep up) and we could get to know each other a bit better over time. But for a giveaway, if you are no-reply make sure you leave an email in your comment. If I cannot reach you I will just draw again.

I'm pattern writing and matchstick quilting this week, and I have some bee blocks that must be finished tonight. The unquilted bit in that photo is about 1.5" to give you some scale and you can catch my progress on instagram too.

Do come back on Thursday for Decipher Your Quilt - I will share the calculations behind 4 patch blocks, Jess will be sharing all about how to identify 4 patch blocks and many different varieties of them. We both have a practice project or block for you too.

Best,

Leanne

  153. I'd like to see some of the sketches you might draw to explore an idea for a quilt, or the fabrics you pull and then pare down to the ones you actually use, or the inspirations for your ideas and designs. I'm interested in how your creative processes work.

  160. Im just lovin the matchstick quilting!!! I just figured out the no reply blogger thang. People can search for Venus Trapped (name of the blogger) who has a great tutorial for those of us caught in no-reply purgatory. It has to do with the fact that we entered blog land through Google plus. I am usually seen online as givbludplayhocky, but now that my no reply is fixed im, SewPsyched!!!

  182. Today I made it to the gym, and I smiled not cried, even though this is the first week I've done any regular excersise in years, hopefully it will stick, and I'll keep at it and get in a healthy routine, that still includes sewing. I've not made strawberry jam in years either, so if I do, I'd love to make some table accessories with this set of fabrics, to make me smile even more. Pass the clotted cream, do be a dear.
