And sew on and on and on...

I have really enjoyed the "And Sew On" block of the month with Kristy @ Quiet Play.  She really does make some very clever paper pieced patterns.  My favourite block to make was the 'Stash Cupboard'!  I made this for the Sewing Room Swap and my secret partner loved rainbows (the shelves are full of a variety of fabrics to represent the rainbow), she loved paper piecing (which is why I picked this block to make her mini of) and she loved Sweetwater fabrics (binding, wallpaper and cupboard door).


Here are some of the extra details I added:
Top left to right: a clock, a removable two sided name badge hung on the doorknob of the cupboard
Bottom left to right: a thimble on top of a stack of books with selvages, scissors on the floor


I really enjoyed making this mini quilt for my partner to hang on her bare sewing room wall.  The little touches and details were so much fun to add - I wanted it to look like a real sewing room and stash cupboard with a pile of books and an overflowing scraps basket!  Maybe I should have thrown some threads all over the carpet for a more realistic effect!

Thank you Kristy for these wonderful FREE patterns.  I am looking forward to the next Block of the month she has planned for the new year!

Love the addition of the buttons, particularly the clock. You've given me an idea of a way to use a sewing machine charm someone sent me! (just have to remember where I put it now!)
