Patchwork Loves Embroidery Sew-Along 2014


This is my first Sew-Along, and I am excited to add another dimension to my quilting experience. Ever since I saw the redwork quilt (see below) in American Patchwork & Quilting August 2004 issue (I saved the issue!), I have had in the back of my mind that "someday" I would add embroidery to my quilts.

Peekaboo Redwork Quilt

I saw on Christina's blog that Martina at Sunshine Quilting is hosting a Sew-Along based on the book Patchwork Loves Embroidery by Australian author Gail Pan. Although I didn't own the book, I already loved it and wanted to participate, so I purchased the Kindle version.

The SAL starts September 1 and continues until the end of October. You can make as many projects as you like and link up your blog post on Martina's blog.

Cinnamon Delights Bag

I have chosen the Cinnamon Delights Bag as my first project, using the materials in the first picture above. I hope to fill it with cinnamon chunks from Penzey's and give it to my church to sell at our Fall Market in October.

Join us - it's a chance to meet new bloggers who share your passion (addiction?)

  4. Hello Linda,

    I hope you have fun with the Sew Along! I've got a question about the Kindle copy of the book. Is it possible to print out the patterns?

    Best regards! :)
