Mixing It Up

Sew Kitschy Block for May

BoM  at Quiet Play blog
May's "Sew Kitschy" Block Of the Month is a favorite of mine....  it is a mixer in Betty's kitchen. It will be a free download until June 1,  at  Quiet Play's Craftsy shop.   
Mixer paper pieced pattern    and  rest of the patterns in the BoM at Craftsy

My mixer in sections           Susie's Sunroom

And here is my jaunty little mixer ,   all sewn up!

May  Sew Kitschy BoM                   by Susie's Sunroom

I tried something a little different on the mixing bowl.... I used the wrong side of the  fabric,  for the inside of the bowl.   I plan on quilting the outline of the whole mixer and bowl at the end,  and this should make the mixer pop out.  

Ooops!  Pretend you don't notice that the fabric is Right Side in between the beaters!!
{Of course I noticed this AFTER the block was all done!  }

My completed Sew Kitschy blocks  so far                        
My bunch of blocks are looking bright and cheerful now.... even on a dreary day.

I am linking up at:    Sew Kitschy May Block @ Quiet Play blog   and
                              Paper Piecing Party @ Quiet Play blog  and
                              Can I Get a Whoop Whoop @  Confessions of a Fabric Addict

I'm off to my sewing room!


  1. Cute, cute, cute! Love the idea to use the wrong side of the fabric inside the bowl. And I didn't notice the fabric between the mixer rods until you pointed it out...

  2. Very, very nice! Red and aqua are always classy together!

  3. Your blocks are wonderful and coordinate so well!

  4. your blocks are so fun!!! I have forgotten what you plan to make with them? They coordinate so well but yet stand out individually. You are so smart to think of using the back side of the fabric inside the bowl!!!

  5. I love your fabrics, too. They coordinate so well. That teapot is charming.

  6. I always love your fabric choices. Using the wrong side of the fabric for the inside of the bowl is so clever. As soon as I finished my block I wished that I had used a different fabric for the inside of the bowl. But there is no way I am unpicking it now!!

  7. Oh, your aqua and red kitchen is coming together so sweetly! Love that idea for the inside of the mixing bowl!!!
