Classic meets Modern Quilt Along: Block/Quilt Setting Diagrams and Instructions

Thursday, December 18, 2014

As promised, here are the Classic meets Modern Quilt Along quilt setting diagrams and instructions I've come up with!

Please feel free to use these, or, to come up with your own design. I love seeing what everyone does every month.

Below you'll see the option to link up your quilt tops - I'd love you to - because I have a giveaway planned for next month for those who link up their finished tops!

Want to play along? Previous month's directions are posted in the right side bar.

As always, have a blast. Feel free to share a button or your block or a link back to this blog. Share the love.

Cotton + Steel Swap, Part 2 - New Lines - CANCELLED

Tuesday, December 16, 2014

Hi all,

I had announced previously {here} that I would be running another Cotton + Steel swap, by designer, of the new lines to be released in the Spring, with sign-ups starting January 1.

I regretfully write that I'll be cancelling those swaps - life as taken a few unexpected turns and the first half of next year will see a lot of turmoil in the Sew at Home Mummy household.

It kills me to cancel. I like the looks of these fabrics more than the current C+S, but, I know when to shout "UNCLE!" and now's the time.

Thanks so much for your understanding.

Current "Homebody" and "August" swaps are unaffected and still ongoing.

My Favorite Things Giveaways: Day 4 - JUNE TAILOR!

Thursday, December 4, 2014



Welcome to the first ever Sew at Home Mummy "My Favorite Things" themed giveaways!

I'm so excited about this line-up I've got for you all - these giveaways will run daily from December 1-4, with each day being sponsored by my FAVORITE companies.

See Monday's Aurifil giveaway {here}.
See Tuesday's Patchwork Threads giveaway {here}.
See yesterday's Havel's Sewing giveaway {here}.

I really do take serious consideration when taking on sponsors here at Sew at Home Mummy. I never promote products or companies I don't believe in and use myself, and I don't ever suggest products I'm not absolutely in love with.

So. That said. Have you ever seen Oprah's "Favorite Things" week? You know, where she gives her audience cars/cookbooks/fabulous trips/kitchen gadgets/{insert fabulous gifts here}?

I always wished I was sitting in that audience.

I thought to myself - how fun would it be to have a series of giveaways here to kick off the month of December?

So I contacted some of the wonderful companies who sponsor me to ask whether they'd consider sponsoring a giveaway for my readers. Today's giveaway is brought to you by the super awesome company June Tailor.


(THANK YOU TO JUNE TAILOR!)

I am such a lucky quilter to be sponsored by such a wonderful company who creates absolutely amazing products!

Just a few of my favorite June Tailor products include:

This is one of my absolute favorite June Tailor products. I have it sitting beside my machine all the time, pressing side up, so that I can piece and then press conveniently. Then when I need to trim my pieces I flip it to the cutting side and trim! Totally awesome. And it's SO convenient to bring upstairs with me - I sit in front of the t.v. at night squaring my HSTs up, cutting pieces for the next block I'm working on, etc. Really fantastic!

45mm Rotary Cutter with Retractable Blade and Safety Lock
This is one of my go-to rotary cutters. I love the retractable blade with safety lock; it's not often that one of the kids are in my sewing space, but I definitely worry a lot less with this cutter than my others. And, the handle is super comfortable and ergonomic to work with.

I love this rack. I have three of them hung on the walls in my basement - they hold all of my spools and bobbins, and keep them up out of the way. The type-A in me loves how they keep me organized and that they look so fantastic on my walls - thread eye candy!

These are just a few of my favorite June Tailor things!

Alright - on to the good part!

So!! What's up for the win today, courtesy of the wonderful people at June Tailor?

They have a couple of new products they're sharing with us today, along with some oldies but definitely goodies - check these videos out!:

The Charming Circle Ruler:
The T-Shirt Transformation Ruler:

Up for grabs today:
