A New Job and Projects!!

A few months ago the ladies from Spool and BAQS put a call out for some folks to help them with testing patterns and making samples for the store. I immediately applied and was accepted. I love those ladies and what they stand for! 

I received my first project last week and it was one I had been dying to make! 

I love Christmas and the fact that this incorporates other colors with the normal red and green. It includes 10 pieced, 10 applique, and 10 setting blocks. I love that it is easy to make smaller as needed- especially for a wall hanging. My task was to make 4 blocks- 2 pieced and 2 appliqued. This was by far the most difficult part of the project. I decided on the twine tied package

Christmas tree


and Contrary Wife.

I put the together with black sashing, then a border of the 3 colors and black binding. 

For the backing I came across this super cute fabric I forgot that I had. Love how the colors even match!

So be sure to check the links for the shop, blog and pattern above and show them some love. I sent it back to them this morning and can't wait for them to see it. 

Take care and happy sewing!!
