Quilty Fun Sew Along and Blog Tour: Week 8 | Trees

Hello, hello! and happy new year! I'm back with the next stop on the Quilty Fun sew-a-long and book tour. There was a little break for Christmas festivities just after Pam's Cups blocks on week 7, but I'm back with week 8 to share with you my Tree blocks! You can find the PDF cutting instructions for these blocks here

These were a real pleasure to stitch, Lori's book is just delightful. Full of all the bright and happy projects you would expect from lovely Lori :) It features the famous Row Along Quilt; which we'll be making for this blog book tour, and ten coordinating projects (one of which I've made already!).

It's all laid out in such a clear way, so it's easy to follow and not get lost. The spiral bound cover is also super practical and saves me valuable space on my sewing table - I wish more quilt books can follow suit ;)

It was great to read more about Lori and her work in the intro section, and how she started the Bonnet Row Along for her local church group as a beginner's quilt course, so they could practice the blocks over and over again, so clever! Oh, and the photo's - amazing. It's such a treat to see those beautiful vintage pink and aqua sewing machines up close!


Now are you ready for a giveaway?! Fat Quarter Shop are kindly giving away two sets of the Bee In My Bonnet Ruler Sets, and a pack of the new Alphabitties

To enter, simply join us in our quilty fun and upload your tree blocks to the to the Flickr group. The winners will be announced on Monday 13th January on the Jolly Jabber blog.
