MCM #20 – Blogiversary, Tutorial & Giveaway

Happy Monday! I hope you had a wonderful weekend and are ready to face a new week. I know I am! Last week I was knocked out of commission for a couple days by a stomach bug, but all is better now and I’m anxious to get to my sewing machine. 🙂

This week my crush is all about celebrating the anniversary of this blog, and treating you to a tutorial for a fun mini quilt and a giveaway. Yay!!

Stars & Stripes Mini Quilt

All the details are on Saturday’s post here: The Celebration Continues. Be sure to comment on that post to be entered for the giveaway, which is open through Friday, May 20th.

Now, let’s see what you were crushing on last week!

First up, Kathleen @ The Creative Side shared this super fun chevron baby quilt. I love the thin sashing and the gradation of colors:



Cathy of A Quilting Chick has a new leader/ender project she is working on for her local NICU. Stop by her blog to read all about it and to check out this Scrap Jar Star quilt she is working on:

And Tanya of Tanya Quilts in Colorado is working on this beautiful herringbone quilt. This would be a great pattern to use up scraps – something I have a ton of right now!



There were so many great projects linked last week. I hope you had a chance to visit and comment on some of the links.

Now it’s your turn to share what you are crushin’ on this week! I would love to see your projects. You can link any blog post, Instagram or Flickr pic – here’s how:

About Beth

I’m a wife, mother of two, and lover of all things crafty. I love to cook up new things in the kitchen and in my craft room, and sometimes get “licking the spoon” mixed up with “licking the fabric”!!

  8. I am glad to hear you are feeling better. I’ve heard about that stomach bug *shudder*. I’m trying to keep from getting whatever crud my husband is fighting off: he had a low grade fever for 3 days last week (yuck)! I hope we can both stay healthy this week and enjoy good sewing time.

  9. Don’t breath facing north. I’m sure I’ll catch it!

    Happy Blogiversay, and good for you that you’re celebrating this year! Yeah!! Here’s the finest wishes to a year of sharp needles, unbroken thread, and smooth stitching, my friend. You deserve it.
