Sew Thankful Sunday, June 2019

{I love the idea of “paying it forward”. I think the world would be a better place if we could spread some joy and acknowledgement of good deeds done by others. I try to do that once a month for my Sew Thankful Sunday posts. I highlight some great content that I’ve found on other people’s blogs that I hope will inspire you and reward the originator by bringing traffic to their site. If your blog has been mentioned without your consent, please let me know and I will take you off the current list of featured bloggers.}

For most of us, June means the transformation of Spring into Summer. The days are getting longer and there is plenty of sunshine. You might even find more (or less) time to spend in your sewing room. Today’s Sew Thankful blog post is full of ideas to help you get creative this summer.

  1. Two of your links were perfect for a couple of things I’ve been wanting to know about. The reverse applique link gave me another way to approach a project I’m trying to figure out. Would never have thought of that as an option. Thanks for the information Julie.

  2. Thank you for the Reverse Applique link. I’ve been trying to get a handle on this method, along with our quilt club at our local quilt shop. The interest it adds to quilts (and clothing) are “double-take” fascinating. It’s a ‘crafty’ venture, and maybe why quilters have run from it, but our group is getting into it, lucky us 🙂

  3. Hope you enjoyed your trip back to Texas in seeing the grand babies We had some nice weather here. I’m looking forward to making a few projects as I will be attending a quilt retreat in 3 weeks and CAN’T WAIT! Enjoyed reading during my lunch today…and I subscribed to Homemade by Emily Jane
