Where Flowers Bloom Blog Hop

Thank you to all who visited and commented on this post.  I have been out of town so I did not choose a winner for the pincushion until today.  I used the Random Number Generator to choose and the number was number 26.  Tammy, you are the winner! I will email you to see where to send it. 


When I first heard about the Where Flowers Bloom Blog Hop at Creatin' in the Sticks I thought of a few projects I had here at home that involved flowers or fabric with flowers.  I thought it was the perfect time to get started on these projects and join the hop.  I was able to complete two projects.  First I will share The Abbey Bag by Abbey Lane Quilts.  I was part of a Pincushion of the Month club a few years ago at Shabby Fabrics.  This was one of the kits I had not worked on up to now.  I also had time to make something to giveaway to a visitor to this post. 


A pincushion and thread or scrap bag is what I will use it for. I could be used to hold whatever you need close by while sewing.

I had so much fun with the kit and I love the bright and cheerful fabrics. While cutting out the firs pincushion, I decided to make another pincushion to give away to one of my visitors to this post. 

I did not have time to make the bag with this pincushion but this flower pincushion could be a cheerful addition to any sewing space.  Leave a comment if you are interested in winning this pincushion, be sure to leave a way for me to contact you if you win.

The other project I made was a bed runner, also made from a kit.  It was fun to piece the log cabin blocks and oh so simple with pre-cut fabric pieces.  It was a relaxing project and quick to complete.

I did a bit of straight line quilting, I can always use the practice.

I love adding striped fabric as binding.

This little bed runner is brightening up our room for now.  I have binding to put on the quilt that will replace it.  I will have no problem finding a place to use this runner.
Don't forget to leave a comment, anyone is welcome to enter to win the blue pincushion.  I will choose a winner on Monday and update this post.

  14. Sherry, you are blessed with children and grandchildren! I cannot imagine that many and know what a blessing it is. My mother and father were each only children and my brothers each married girls who were an only child, so we have a very small clan. When I was in grade school, I attended a one room school where I was the only girl in my grade, so again very small. We had 30 children in the entire school. I learned to be an introvert because I was overshadowed by those around me. I am very content to sit and sew in solitude and love it. I adore your bedrunner and the pincushion/bag is wonderful. Thanks for the chance to win the pincushion. I love pincushions. susan.dietrich@cox.net Blessings to you for the work you do for literacy.

  15. Sherry, how cute that pincushion and bag are! And a nice kit out of the box and into a finish. I'd love to win the companion pincushion. Those colors are right up my alley! The bed runner is gorgeous, too. I like the soft colors and the greens in your pillows that pull the green out of the runner. Mary Ellen Hopkins told us at a lecture we should always bind wit stripes. =) dezertsuz at gmail
