Sew Alongs for 2014

Have you heard?  January and February are the busiest months ever for sew-alongs (no real surprise there).  And there are plenty to be had.  Here are just a few of my favourites (click on the picture to find out more):
Wishes Sew Along
(FREE although a donation to the Make-a-Wish foundation wouldn't go amiss.
This is my February block by-the-way.)
Debbie Mumm's 2014 Block of the Month (FREE)
Civil War Threads of Memory BOM 2014
(FREE - perfect if you like a dose of history with your patchwork)
Sugar Block Club 2014
(Small Charge but perfect if you like a dose of cake with your patchwork!)
Don't Call Me Betsy's Block Club 2014
(Small charge - paper-piecing at its best)
And if you can’t commit just now then how about a beautiful blue-and-white mystery quilt block.  There is a charge but it is very reasonable as it includes fabric, pattern and postage.  It doesn't start until June but be warned - they often stop subscriptions in February or March due to demand.
Fat Quarter Shop Mystery Block 2014
I am working my way through the Quilty Fun sew along which started in 2013.  I am a little bored of stitching small squares onto corners of fabric but when they turn out as lovely as this week’s Tulip block it is all worth it.

Sew there you have it - a few projects to get you thinking.  If they all seem like too much commitment then jump aboard the Across the Pond Sew Along - it is very relaxed - you don't even have to make anything as you can sit in the 'crows-nest' and keep a look-out at all the projects made by other members.  Find out more by clicking on the tab above.

Sew until next time ...........
