And Sew On BoM ... for September

The Sewing Sanctuary Block

Quiet Play  And Sew On Block of the month 9

September  brings in the cooler weather in the evening, and some beautiful blue skies during the days!  I call that perfect weather for sewing!   
 It also brings us to the ninth and last block in Quiet Play's  And Sew On Bom !  I will truly miss working on these blocks designed by Kristy.  (go on over to see all of her paper pieced patterns... they are fun and amazing! )

September's block is called  The Sewing Sanctuary.  This is the pattern:

The sewing sancutary  pattern   Still available for free until the end of September

This block was a challenge to come up with "just the right" fabrics, for all of the fun little details that you could place into this pattern 
(It did end up taking longer for me to choose these fabrics than the previous blocks.  But for a fun reason!)
I wanted to pick fabrics that I had used in many of the earlier blocks... for continuity in the 9 blocks. I chose a light blue color for the  wall so that it would not be too busy for the cute little  feature details.
The Sewing Sanctuary                    Susie's Sunroom

 The window view-

A winter scene  looking out of my window
Pictures on the wall-
                sewing notions  (in black and white , to carry those colors/fabrics through), in their little yellow polka dot frames

My chair-    Wish I had a yellow one , but in my real sewing room  I use some  antique chairs from my great-grandmother's restaurant... a connection to  fond childhood memories.

I love this yellow chair!  
The waste bucket-    another fun yellow touch.  There's no such thing as  too many  yellow touches in my  sewing room!
I wanted to use some  yellow gingham again.

Here are my nine blocks in the And Sew On BoM         
What fun it has been making these!  Next, I will be figuring out how to put them all together in a mini quilt wall hanging .... for my sunroom!

I'm off to my sewing room!

You can see all of the beautiful and creative  sewing sanctuaries made by other quilters at Quiet Play  blog!
