{ sew-a-thon }


Well, it's official, Rhonda and I are having a sew-a-thon this week! We are getting together every evening from Monday to Friday to sew. By the end of the week we'll have each completed a quilt top!

For my quilt I am going to use the fabric shown above. It's called Look and Learn American Jane by Moda. I purchased the jelly roll awhile ago from Hamel's back room for half price and then picked up the rest on Saturday at their 20% off sale. Since they didn't have any charm packs, I cut my own 5" squares. The blue stripe will be used as an inner border. I'm going to be using the Once Around the Block pattern by Carola (again!).

Don't tell my youngest daughter, but I think I will give her this quilt for her birthday. I bought this fabric because I love it, so why not keep the quilt in the family?

Have a nice week! I'll be posting updates daily for the sew-a-thon!


  1. This will be so much fun for you and Rhonda. I'll be watching your progress. Have fun!
