Sew Thankful Sunday, February 2021

{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 February 2021 is full of projects to fill your heart and tips to make your sewing and quilting life easier.

Blink. There goes January and here we are in February already! I’m truly not ready for this year to progress forward; although in some ways I’m more than ready to have parts of it done and gone. Sew Thankful February brings us lots of heartfelt projects and some sweet things too!

  1. I’m excited to kick off February with this sweet Lovestruck Heart Block Pattern from Allison at Cluck Cluck Sew! She never fails to make some kind of heart project in February and this one is adorable.

  1. Time to decorate with this cute XOXO Bunting for Valentine’s Day by Cherry at Cherry Blossoms Quilting for We All Sew. This is a quick project with excellent instructions for a happy splash of hugs and kisses!

  1. Give your Valentine something to satisfy his or her sweet tooth with this Giant Chocolate Sugar Cookie from Our Best Bites. Included with the recipe are some cute printable labels, too. I might have to make one for myself just because!

  1. Check out this fun Stitches From The Heart Quilt & Cross Stitch Pattern at The Jolly Jabber. They have a video tutorial that walks you through the steps and you can choose a mini or wall hanging size quilt or maybe you want to try cross stitching. Very sweet to have all those choices!

  1. You may know Wendy Sheppard at Ivory Spring as an incredible free motion quilter and pattern designer, but she also offers lots of tips for her 2-Cent Tuesday blog posts. Recently she shared the importance of keeping half-square triangle units perfectly square and how she accomplishes that.

  1. Quilters are always trying to get their seam allowance just right. Amy at Diary of A Quilter shows you What a scant 1/4″ seam allowance is and why it’s important. Such a simple thing that can make a big difference!
  1. I love learning how quilters organize their sewing spaces, so I was delighted to see the January Aurifil Artisan Sew Organized Showcase. It features 17 designers and how they organize their threads and sewing tools. Below is one idea from Lauren at Molly and Mama on storing her Aurifil threads and floss.

  1. If you like piecing quilt blocks as much as I do, you’ll love the 2021 RBD Block Challenge at Riley Blake Designs. Follow along now through June 22nd as 16 designers share their 10″ quilt block patterns. The final quilt design is still a mystery but I’m sure it will be fabulous!
  1. I love seasonal table runners and this Heart Table Runner and Quilt Tutorial from Connie at Free Motion By The River is perfect for February. This is perfect for a winter day of sewing!

  1. I don’t like leaving thread out in the open where it can gather dust. Dust is abrasive and I don’t want it being pulled through the tension disks and other points of contact in sensitive machines. So-o-o, when I got my new sewing table, I removed the almost useless little shelves on the inside of the left front door and replaced them with a wooden rack just like the one filled with Aurifil threads in the picture above. Now I just close the door and my thread is much better protected than if I let it sit out uncovered. And it’s close at hand when I’m sewing.

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