You get it right? The fact that there’s so many fantastic -a-longs, tutorials, and inspirations in blog-land that you can’t keep up? There’s two going on right now that are, for me, colliding into a supercallifragilistic fireworks explosion of must-sew! inspiration.
The first is the Zakka 2.0 sew-along from Deb at A Quilter’s Table and Lindsay at LR Stitched. This style often uses linen paired with pretty quilting cottons, which make practical and useful items for around the home. I don’t have time for many of them, but hoping to make the place mats.
The second is the Kate Spain blog hop hosted by Alyce at Blossom Heart Quilting. I won a scrap bag from Kate Spain herself a year and a half ago, and those lovely Good Fortune scraps have been useful for many projects, from pouches to quilt blocks, and fostered an attachment to Kate’s fabric designs.
So how do these collide for me, you ask? Well, I was lucky enough to win a gift certificate to Knotted Thread (on Etsy) from Deb at a Quilter’s Table, so I quite happily filled up a flat-rate envelope with yardage and fat quarters of Honey Honey (love those bees). Oh, that Honeycomb of Happy-Go-Lucky snuck in there too.
These will become a dress for my daughter, some Zakka place mats, and maybe other projects…
Linking up to Sunday Stash, today hosted by Allison at Dreaming in Patchwork and the Kate Spain blog hop linkup with Alyce.
