Sewcial Bee Sampler Block #16

Sewcial Bee Sampler Block #16

The virtual sewing bee that my co-host Maureen Cracknell and I have created has been simply amazing and it's all because of the SBS Makers posting their blocks and making the sew along a community event. I'm astonished with every block I see posted to Instagram under the hashtag #SewcialBeeSampler. I love the confidence that's being gained and the changes and modifications being invented to make your sampler truly unique and your own. Thank you for sewing with us!

If you're just joining us on the Sewcial Bee Sampler (SBS) you may want to start at the first post, working your way forward and taking advantage of the in-blog tutorials. Otherwise, let's get started sewing week #16 block! Download the free King's Crown PDF from my Sew Along page.

The King's Crown block is the perfect block for a fussy cut center and utilizes the No-Waste Flying Geese units we've already used in several other blocks. For a review of how to make crisp Flying Geese units, visit the tutorial blog post here

I've pieced my block using my new Bountiful fabrics from Art Gallery Fabrics. My feature print is Scenic Blue Sky, a modern take on toile along with Vine Umbra and Tartan Field Snow prints. To find where to purchase Bountiful, visit my Shop Fabrics page

There's very few photos of me as a child all by myself. This photo was taken the summer before I went into first grade. Life was very simple back then and my Bountiful collection is an attempt to recapture some of those memories and feelings of living in the Midwest. I still wear Ked sneakers to this day!

Be watching this week as Maureen and I post pictures from Quilt Market in St. Louis, MO showing off our booths and new makes. Maureen is debuting her new Soulful collection and I will have a Bountiful fabrics booth. It will be tons of fun!

Don't forget that this Friday's Giveaway Friday and this week, Maureen will be hosting from her blog. We've got a great giveaway planned from Aurifil Thread you won't want to miss!
