There is one quilt block that I never seem to tire of.
Bento Box Blocks!
I've made so many different projects using them...
|1. Pretty Please Quilt, 2.Bento Box Pillow, 3. Kitchen chairs, 4. Placemats|
and apparently love them most when they're sewn in red and white. :o)
I even share a tutorial (here) to show you how to sew your own scrappy bento box blocks.
You would think that that would be enough. However, I find myself once again making these blocks.
My little portable design board (a piece of foam posterboard covered in white flannel) is set up next to my machine and covered with the cut pieces needed to make more scrappy blocks.
Any guesses what my latest blocks will become?
Now for the favour...
Calling fabric loving Canadians...we need your help!
Recently, I was asked if I would be interested in finding the next stop for the
Canadian Travelling Stash. Oh, a travelling box of fabric and sewing goodies that can be mailed to your doorstep? It sounds like such a fun idea, I wanted to spread the word.
Here's how it works...
The rules are that a Canadian blogger receive the box, blog about it, take out and then put in the same amount. You can put in anything from fabric, to patterns, to thread, or any sewing related items and then you will forward it to another blogger. One modification to the original rules is that the exchange can now be in person (if the next blogger is local to you), otherwise you will be responsible for mailing it.
Wouldn't this be fun to pass around one by one to the members of a guild?
You can click here to visit Denise and see what she has added to the box. Leave her a comment on her blog or here, if you'd like to be the next lucky person to receive the Canadian Travelling Stash!
