Sew Thankful Sunday, June 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 June 2020 has mug rugs, quilt alongs, studio tours and much more from ten different designers and it's all free and inspiring!

June is usually a time of graduations and celebrations.  It’s a very different world right now in 2020, and I hope we can still be thankful for the little things. The quilting community has always been generous and it’s provided a space for me to focus on something creative and positive.  For that I am always thankful!  Enjoy today’s list of creative ideas. I hope it makes your day and month a little brighter.

  1. Amanda at The Patchsmith is generously offering her Rainbow Mug Rug pattern for free. She says that where she lives, in England, the sign of hope and thankfulness is a rainbow. I think so too, and this mug rug definitely makes me feel both!

  1. Love your Thankful post! The creative ideas keep us all afloat during such challenging and heartbreaking times. I’m making two of your Origami Pouches and six masks today. Both of your patterns are so easy to follow and quick to make. Way back in the 80’s when 2020 seemed so far away we had no clue of what it would bring. Hopefully it doesn’t take 20+ years to forget the pain of 2020. Thank you for keeping us on the positive side!

I love hearing from you! Thanks for leaving a comment.
