Keep Sewing Along… You Just Might Win This!


This week I thought I’d unveil the Grand Prize basket of excitement, which will be awarded to ONE Sew-Along participant, following our Big Reveal….Goodies were donated by our participating designers, along with our friends at Martingale and Misty Fuse!


Oooohhh, right?  There might even be an item or two that didn’t make the photo, so be sure to comment in the final week for your chance to win it all!  We hope you’ve been keeping up week-by-week,including WEEK 7 by Mary Ellen Robison of Red Crinoline Quilts, and WEEK 8 by Dolores Smith of Homestead Hearth.  Both are shown below.

And stay tuned for the final block (designed by me!) this Friday, September 26, as well as the Big Reveal on October 3!  Keep stitching! — lisa

  18. What a terrific grand prize! The whole sew along has been fantastic. Hope you all will do this again. Can’t wait for the big reveal on the 3rd but I will hate to see it end.

    Thanks for making September sewing month so memorable….Nancy

  19. How thoughtful for Marcus Fabrics to organize this fun adventure…not to mention the beautiful blocks designed and shared by all! The idea of learning about “Friends and Companions” gives this project a special twist as you read about what projects others are working on, what’s happening in other areas of the country and continue to connect with others through this invisible thread we call the internet.

    Thank you for the free patterns and the beautiful basket of goodies for a lucky winner!

  20. I have not been able to start the blocks yet. I been sitting with a very sick granddaughter in PICU in Austin Texas for almost 4 weeks. I have been keeping up each week when the new block is posted . This is going to be lovely quilt. I really love civil war reproduction fabric! Can’t wait to get started making the blocks.

  21. This has been so much fun seeing everyone’s version of these blocks. Wow, some are even doing them in two color ways. That gift basket is awesome. Someone is going to be a very lucky quilter!!

  22. Love to see the progress on this, and all the interesting color choices. I’m saving all the block instructions for a later date since I’m working on a project with a deadline right now (baby’s coming!). I’d love to be eligible for the prize package, though.

  23. These blocks have been fun to make. I am anxious to see the setting for them. Thanks for all of the hard work that goes into a sew-a-long.
