I need my reader's help.

Friday, August 15, 2014

I don't normally do things like this, but I thought it might be worth a shot.

I've created a MQG quilt design for the Cotton Couture challenge, and for the challenge, you must only use Cotton Couture solids.

Here's my problem:

I don't own any Cotton Couture. And the quilt I want to make requires every color from their line be used.

I'm wondering if any of my readers may have some Cotton Couture scraps they are willing to part with - I would most definitely pay for shipping, and I can definitely pay you for the scraps, too (perhaps by weight?).

And, they must be Cotton Couture.

I need some of every color from the line, and the scraps should measure at least 1.5" square - otherwise, any piece will do!

If you have some you'd like to pass on to me, you can email me {here} -

and if you're so inclined, feel free to pass along my needs to anyone quilty you may be chatting with hehehe.

I've also put this request out on Instagram, with the hashtag: sahmCCsearch

thank you SO much in advance everyone!

Helping out a great bloggy/quilty/expat-y friend.

Thursday, August 14, 2014

So today I managed to get a block done for the Chicago MQG's breast cancer awareness charity quilt. Our task was to take a slang term about boobies and create a block inspired by that term.

I got "cupcakes".

I went totally literal with my block. Okay. So sometimes I'm not that creative. :D

For those who may be interested, I'm in the process of writing up a pattern for the block now, I'll let you all know when it's ready!

Today I spent a few minutes helping out a bloggy/quilty/expat friend - Mara made these amazing little shorts out of Liberty of London fabric and she entered them in a contest...so of course I made sure to head over there to vote - if you'd like to vote, here is the link and a pic of the shorts she made (click the picture to head over to vote - you need to register and confirm your email, but it's really quick to do!):
Vote for Mara's little girl Liberty of London shorts {here}
She also has entered a block in the Win a Singer Sewing Machine contest, and if you'd like to vote for her block, you can click the link below:


Mara's also having a giveaway on her blog right now - {click here} to go there!

WIP Wednesday - Physio Harnesses | C+S Swap - Moonlit Round - Update!

Wednesday, August 13, 2014

Oh my goodness. I have been up to some shenanigans here.

Before I get to that, here's an update on the Moonlit Round of the C+S Swap here at Sew at Home Mummy!

I have received fabrics from the following people (in alphabetical order):

AS 29483
ED 60202
ES 26180
FK 14517
IJ (Int'l)
ME 22172
SE 82070

Please check in on the weekend for another update on packages received if yours is in the mail and you don't see your name above!

Also, remember that the next round, the Basics Round, starts on August 25! Every print in the basics line for Cotton + Steel will be swapped - you can sign up for swapping fat eighths, charms squares, or both! More information on the swap can be found {here}.

Now!

Onto the shenanigans.

I've been working day and night on this project - it still involved quilting!:
I've been helping my friend {Elizabeth} out with this project; they are harness support vests patients will wear while undergoing physiotherapy for learning to walk again.
I used my Singer 201 for the entire project, and it was awesome. Sewing through thick, dense layers of foam, strapping and nylon was no problem for the machine. I love it!

The vests turned out really well, and they've been already delivered to the company which ordered them. I was so happy to be able to help {Elizabeth} out with this project, it was too cool.

I've also been busy working on infant scale slings for the Sew at Home Mummy Etsy Shop:
I'm excited to get back started on some (more traditional!) quilty projects!

Linking up to Freshly Pieced's WIP Wednesday!
