I was fortunate and able during the Holidays to get some sewing time in! I truly find it a calming event for me. With the demands of being a Store Owner, there are always sewing related projects for future classes, customers or store samples to make. However, I find it important to take time for items not business related, but for me and my family.
Shown here, I am working on a Mystery Quilt Along project from Bonnie K. Hunter's Quiltville. Yes, if you are or have followed her - this was last year's mystery called Good Fortune. Amazing how my clothes seemed to blend in! I have since completed this top and am currently working on her mystery this year called Frolic.
This is just a sample of other projects out there to work on. Facebook, Internet Bloggers and sometimes Websites have them. You do need to go to their blog or site locations to follow them. They run for a defined period of time and usually have a regular posting time, same time each week for the next "clue" or "step." And they each have their own set of rules to abide by ... like be nice, don't disclose measurements, etc.
I do want to mention the Facebook Moda Blockheads 2020 Quilt Along which starts today, January 15. You can join, no fee and use the fabrics you wish. They would love it if you used their Moda fabrics, but not a requirement. And we,of course, carry lots of Moda FQ bundles (perfect for this) if you wish to also participate.
The whole point of this post is because I think it would be fun to have Bluebird Quilts also provide a Quilt Along for a small project and try it out. I hope you feel the same way. Please leave a comment and let me know if you want me to pursue this further.
I wish you Happy Stitching, and I'll return to my machine for some more quilting fun! Bluebird Janet
