I admit it. I am an internet hound. (which is a nice way to say that I am addicted to browsing) I find that times go by so quickly when I am lost in the image and link world of the internet. But really, this is a great resource to take advantage of. Today we have gathered a few of our favorites from around the internet world to introduce you to a new designer, block of the month, clubs, and more!
Sew Along & clubs — you should totally join!
This small little group is full of variety. There’s an online quilt group, mini quilt club, national sewing month series, block of the month, quilt along based on a book, and a back of the month club! Because no size fits all in quilting, there is something for everyone here!
I feel like the only way you can explore new techniques and have different sewing experiences is to surround yourself with great clubs, groups and sew alongs. We are so excited to have teamed up so you are introduced to others who we love and follow also.
It’s time for you to explore and start sewing!
You’ll find a quick description of what each is all about followed by a link for more info on signing up or sewing along. Have fun!

Think Big Sew Along- by Amy Ellis is all about making the quilt you want to make! There’s 10 blocks in the book, all 18″, which makes for a fast finish no matter how big or small. I walk you through all the math so you can make the right quilt for you whether a pillow or king size bed quilt!
I’m hosting a quilt-along starting next week (August 3rd) with three of the blocks included in the book so we can be creative together. I’ll be sharing all my tips for making these blocks and hopefully learn something new from all you too! Ready to Think Big? Stop by!

Back of the month with May Chappell – Want to design interesting quilt backs? Sometimes they’re as much fun as the front. May Chappell’s new club called Back of the Month is like a block of the month for quilt backs! Each month, you’ll get a pdf outlining a quilt back design idea. Each will focus on a way to design an interesting back, bringing elements from the front (and using all those scraps!). Since obviously quilt backs are all different sizes, there will be lots of information about sizing things and applying the designs based on what you have. Here are the details: On the 15th of each month, you’ll get an email from Send Owl to download a pdf. The subscription lasts for 6 months and is only $12. You have until August 14 to join. You’ll automatically receive Month One when you sign up! Come join the fun!!
