#79 Sew Sweet Simplicity BOM... Putting it all together


It has been a great 6 months of making incredible blocks and meeting new people. I have had such a great time and it has been so much fun being a part of Jacquelynne's amazing project and all the prize giveaways!!



This month is even better....bigger giveaways and even bigger announcements

At each participating blog you get a chance to win, Jacquelynne's Digital book, Child's Play.


    and at Jacquelynne's blog you have a chance to win a prize bundle with a retail value of $70.                                            Also there will be a Big Announcement you won't want to miss!!!



What I've Been up to:


Over the course of the 6 months I have made the 6 blocks into a table runner and turned two of the blocks into Super Sized.....



I finished my runner with a simple sashing and contrasting binding, but pieced the backing so that I would have two choices in one runner



I also appliqued a monogram on one of the blocks for a Christmas table topper...

And my SuperSized Blocks: 32" Square







 I really Like how this one turned out...went with an oversized digital quilt pattern for the oversized block!! It's called Splish Splash....
Now I just have to wait for the binding fabric to arrive and this beauty will be going on my family room as a table topper!! Just in time for spring....I hope....come on sun!!!

  3. The table runner is a great idea for using the blocks and makes a great gift idea. Two weddings are on the calendar for summer and I think I know that one bride would love a table runner. Thanks for being in the group that made Sew Simplicity blocks.
