I'm a huge fan of Birch's organic fabric, and this soon to be released collection is absolutely perfect for summer sewing projects! You can see the whole collection here at Fabricworm.

3. The Drawing: To enter the giveaway, all you have to do is leave a comment below answering this question: What's your favorite kind of sew along: quilts? bags? small projects? sewing through a whole book? Followers, new and old, can leave an extra comment for a second entry. Please make sure that your email address is in your comment if you're a no-reply blogger. The giveaway is open internationally and will stay open until 5pm on Friday when I'll choose a random winner.

Thanks so much for dropping by!

    ReplyDelete
  64. I've only participated in one sew-a-long. It was for a quilt and I'm still not done! Sewing is my down-time & I think it bothered me to have to keep on a schedule, but I loved seeing everyone's color and fabric choices.

    ReplyDelete

  69. I'm not sure I can pick a favourite! I've done quilt and book sew alongs and they've all been really great, motivating and full as well as a chance to pick up new skills. I love particular project ones like VeryKerryBerry's tova sew along which I didn't do at the time but have used it when making my own, same goes for the Cargo Duffle sew along by Sophie Crespy.

  81. I've never done a sew-along as it was happening but I have bought kits/fabric for 2 Quilt sew-alongs that I found after the fact. But I think I would follow small project sew alongs if I found them on time.

    ReplyDelete
  82. I follow your blog on bloglovin.

    ReplyDelete
  83. I joined in the Zakka Style sew along and thoroughly enjoyed it (18/24 projects!), but it took up my entire sewing time for 6 months as I only get a bit of time at weekends. I joined in the And-Sew On quilt along last year and enjoyed that too, for me one block a month is more maneagable, so I'll say quilt alongs

    ReplyDelete
  84. I have just registered for the very first SAL in my life, for a huge quilt. I haven't got any experience so far, so let's see how it goes there. Thanks for the chance!

    ReplyDelete
  121. I've never done a sew-along but I'd probably pick one that worked all the way through a book if I did decide to do one. I remember doing that in a couple classes in school and I always felt very accomplished when I was able to close the book and know I could complete everything in it.

    ReplyDelete
  122. I love mystery quilt alongs! Thanks for the giveaway!

    ReplyDelete
  123. I LOVE that fabric!
    And I'm new to sew-alongs, so I'm a fan of smaller projects. I work full-time and have a kid, so my sewing time is very limited and it can be hard to sew-along with larger projects (although I'm participating in an open-ended one now!)

    ReplyDelete
  144. Small projects are my favorite because I am really bad about finishing big projects.

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  156. I love to follow quilt sew-alongside but don't often participate because of time commitments. I like bag sew-alongside since they are usually a little faster. I only have a few hours/week to sew and I can usually finish a bag in that time.

    ReplyDelete

  158. small projects. something that can be done quickly and easily.

    ReplyDelete
  159. I'm a fan of quicker, small project sew-a-longs..... considering I can barely keep up with BOM's I definitely have to think small - both because I don't have tons of "extra" time - and because I have a short attention span! :)

    ReplyDelete
  160. I think the only sew alongs I've done have been quilts, though I do enjoy making bags!
