Sew Thankful Sunday, March 2020

{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.}

Sew Thankful Sunday for March 2020 is loaded with free patterns, tips for getting more done, some March Madness for quilters and lots more!

I love this free Jolly Bar Bakewell Quilt Pattern from Fat Quarter Shop so much! It’s a great way to use their Jolly Bar Precuts which are 5″ x 10″ rectangles (in between a charm square and a layer cake). The one shown below is made from Canning Day by Corey Yoder for Moda Fabrics (love!).
