I meant to post this yesterday but crazy deadlines have me hiding for cover in my sewing room for the next week. But I’m really excited to share that Sara, SewSweetness, is currently hosting a sew along on her blog for my book. Each day, a different blogger will share there a version of one of the patterns from my book. You’ll see each of them made and how others have interpreted the patterns.
But the fun doesn’t stop there! After that there will be a chance to enter your own creations from my patterns and win lots of fun prizes!! Fun prizes people! We love those.
Today is just day two on the stop and already I’m in love with what the quilters are creating. Today Kaye, Miss Print, has shared a mini version of my butterfly pattern and it was her first time sewing curves!! Yay Kaye!
And yesterday, Heidi, Fabric Mutt, created a beautiful pillow version of my medallion quilt that I just want to steal. She used all those darling Heather Ross prints that are so yummy and precious!
I love how she chose to make the same design at a smaller scale and created a beautiful pillow rather than the baby quilt I designed. Just goes to show how versatile these patterns are. And Heidi too shares her thoughts on the book as a whole.
It’s going to be so fun for me to see these projects being made and hearing everyone’s opinions about the book and the designs. I hope that you all check out the fun as well. You can see all the projects on Sara’s blog over the next couple of weeks. And I’ll try to keep you all updated every few days with the projects. But in the meantime, feel free to start your own to enter later or finish up a project you have started. As you can see, there are lots of ways to make a quilt a more accessible small project by doing a mini version of it.
I can’t wait to see what is next!!

What a thrill it must be to see what other people create from your patterns! I love the pillow too! And the butterflies is very cute!
Looks fun: I just ordered the book yesterday and have my favorite that I want to do. 🙂 It'll be fun to see what other people do with the patterns!! Hugs, H in Healdsburg
I managed to giant size you (well, not you, the pattern. You know what I mean!), and I hope to get it finished for the end of Sara's hop, as I don't think it ill be by the end of the Craft Buds one!
Just got my book Weds or Thurs, took the template to Tapp Plastics on Friday, got the templates back on Saturday and started cutting out that night!! I did sew together one of the curved blocks Sat night and it went together nicely. I'm sewing the Nine Patch Curves: love, love, love that one!! It's going to go in our trailer that we've ordered, and I had 4 pieces of the Smore Love by Cosmo Cricket and have added to it to get enough for the color combinations to make the flower petals. It's been fun!! Great quilt Angela!! I'll share a photo of mine with you when I get the top done!! Hugs, H in Healdsburg
