Doll Quilt Swap - June 2015

Now that I no longer have to travel for work, I opted back in on the Doll Quilt Swap for June. This month's theme was "Patriotic".

I own a quilt pattern by This & That called Sideways & Byways. One day I will make this quilt, but for now, I thought the block pattern would make a cute mini quilt.

"Sideways & Byways" Quilt Pattern

Here is my block in a red, white and blue theme. I stitched in the ditch to quilt it. For the red, I used a fabric printed like a bandana. It's an all-American print for me since it reminds me of cowboys. Finished size is 18.5" x 18.5".

Quilt Backing

This was a very easy block to make. The pattern is well-written and easy to follow. I highly recommend this pattern.

It's Getting Closer!

My travel schedule the past several months has kept me from my sewing machine. I have done a few things, but not much. That is about to change in a serious way!

My current job was supposed to be for twelve weeks. That was 31 months ago! We finally found a suitable candidate for my job and I have been in training mode the last few weeks. After the second week in June, I am going to have lots of time to sew and sew and sew some more.

One of my goals with the change in job status is launch Sally Said Sew into a home-based business. I still have several things that need to occur to make it a reality, but I am working on checking those to-do's off one by one. One thing you should notice immediately is that it no longer shows blogspot.com in the website address. Yes, I have registered sallysaidsew.com! I have to start somewhere.

I will be debuting a storefront, either through Etsy, Facebook or some other format, to sell the things I make in the coming weeks and months. I have a fabric habit to support, you know. ;-)

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you will be back to see the changes that are coming.
