Paper Pieced Party

 Hello lovelies! Hope this week has been good to you and filled with paper piecing projects!
My kidlet started back to school this week and you’d think that would mean more time to sew, but my poor sewing machine has been most neglected this week. I do hope to remedy that on the weekend however.

So I’m afraid not much to share in the way of projects for me! But I do have some pattern news! The woodland creatures are nearly all tested! I have listed another couple in the shop today!


Also just a little reminder that we are at the end of January. You know, in case you haven’t checked your calendar lately. And more importantly – in case you haven’t yet downloaded the first Sew Kitschy block! The February block will be posted tomorrow! (Eek, February is tomorrow!! Apparently this year intends to fly by as fast as last year did).

Sew Kitschy January Block

If you have made your January block, don’t forget to add it to the linky party over on this post. I’ll be choosing a winner from the linky party to receive their choice of 3 free patterns from my shop!

I am loving seeing the different blocks show up around the blogosphere! And can you believe it – there have been over 1000 downloads of the January block! Well knock me over with a wet noodle. (I have no idea what that even means, my sister and I picked up the phrase as kids from some silly cartoon and it kind of stuck). But seriously, quilty types, thank you! It’s made me so happy to see that you are enjoying this year’s BoM!

Here are a couple I picked out from the linky party (click the pics to go to the blogposts):

I’m looking forward to seeing what you guys all do with the second block! Pop back tomorrow for details and to download your copy for February :)

In the meantime, it’s time for the Friday Paper Piecing Party! Share any foundation piecing mischief you’ve been up to this week!
