Sew Thankful Sunday, August 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 August 2021 is full of quilting tips, Christmas projects and back to school ideas!

Sew Thankful Sunday for August brings us to the second half of the year which means summer is winding down, school is starting soon and the holidays are around the corner. That gives us lots of reasons to keep sewing, quilting and making projects! Today’s list for Sew Thankful Sunday has some great ideas to get your started.

  1. The Aurifil blog’s latest Five for Friday is all about Back to School Projects. That’s right, August means school will be starting soon for many, and these projects will be a great way to get some of those supplies made in style.
  1. Check out this beautiful Christmas on the Farm Table Runner by Beverly at Flamingo Toes. This is part of the Need a Little Christmas series with Amanda at Jedi Craft Girl and Christopher at The Tattooed Quilter. Each is sharing a free Christmas table runner pattern, a coordinating cross stitch pattern and a cookie recipe! These elves are so sweet!

  1. I love a good pineapple, especially the quilting kind! Check out these 10 Free Pineapple Quilt Block Patterns gathered by Craft Gossip (a wonderful resource for all things crafty).
  1. The last part of the quilting process is sometimes the hardest. Alyce at Blossom Heart Quilts has some great suggestions for How to Quilt Big Quilts on a Domestic Sewing Machine. I’m a fan of the “smoosh” method myself!
  1. July was filled with Christmas cheer by way of the 12 Days of Christmas in July Blog Hop hosted by Sarah at Confessions of a Fabric Addict. You’ll find lots of ideas and tutorials for gifts to make for the upcoming holidays.
  1. Did you know that July 25 was Thread the Needle Day? Fat Quarter Shop sure did and their blog, The Jolly Jabber, shared Needles: The Need to Know! which was full of the history and facts about needles and which ones are best for specific crafts.

  1. One of the basic supplies that quilters use is “quilting cotton”. You’ll find Tips & Tricks for Sewing with Quilting Cotton by Julie at We All Sew that has some great information for working with cotton fabric.
