One block Wonders BMO.....August quilt block.....X Boxed

One block Wonders BMO.....August quilt block.....X Boxed

Here comes August and the second to last month......just one more after this.....really??

I can hardly believe it....

I hope everyone is having a fantastic summer and staying cool...but if you are one of our lovely sewers from down under and it's winter....I hope you are staying warm, inside, sewing up a storm......

This month we have more great sponsors and some fantastic prizes for you "to sew" to win!!

Our August block has gone through many changes, both in fabric, layout and names...

Here is the winning layout and name.....

X Boxed (#XBoxedQuilt)

So now what.... as always, that is the first question.....

I made 3 more blocks and this fantastic pillow...

You can find the tutorial for making a zipped backed pillow

here at Sew Mama Sew

A few tips:

I pin the flap back out of the way when sewing the other side of the zipper, so I don't catch it

I also add a little stitching to the open end of the zipper before trimming the extra off, to keep the ends together and lined up.

and I am working on two more examples for you...

The full sized sample will be made using these bright fun fabrics, part of the

Bear Essentials 3

line from

P&B Textiles

...super excited to see this quilt come together....just love the prints and colours in this line!!

Here's a sneak peek of my EQ7 mock up......

I'll be posting pictures of my progress on IG (@UpStairHobbyRoom) and our

FB Group

all month!

Look for a post in a few days with the other sample option... It is fantastic too! Think Seasonal....and  look for a discount to go with that fun sample!!! (check out my

discount page often

you never know what discounts and sales you may find!!)

That's it for now....enjoy and I can't wait to see what you come up with!!
