You are invited to sew along in 2017

You are invited to sew along in 2017


The best way to get started is to join the Facebook group and chat with us!


Free Pattern at Craftsy


Want to sew along with us? Here’s how it works:

This charity sew-along runs from August 16, 2017 to November 1, 2017. This gives you more than two months to sew up one or more NICU smocks and donate them to a great cause. No matter where you live, we’d like to invite you to join us in sewing for charity.
  1. Download the FREE NICU smock pattern on Craftsy! Print off the last six pages, and follow the directions for your chosen size.
  2. Please use quality quilting cottons for the outside and any coordinating flannel for the lining. You may pre-wash your fabrics or not — it’s up to you. Please secure with Velcro, not snaps.
  3. Join our Facebook group to share your creations! We are currently 700 members strong, and a supportive group of friends who are happy to answer your questions.
  4. We've assembled a team of people to collect the smocks, so you may mail them to any of the addresses listed in this Google document. In order to even out the donations, we've made suggestions on who to mail them to based on your last name. All smocks must be postmarked by November 1, 2017.

Having problems with Blogger...

I apologize for the post below, I have no idea why the font color has gone crazy, I can’t seem to fix it, I guess that is a  burp by blogger. I hope it doesn’t happen again.
Later on today I will up date to share my first block of my QAYG Bird Quilt !!

It is not the bird block above, That is just one of the pattern pictures,
The one I am doing is a bright pastel  green back ground and I have it quilted and have fused my cute bird on it and now am going to go to the sewing machine and do my out lining , HOPING the mail man comes quickly, I had to order a 10 1/2  X 10 1/2 square ruler to  trim and square up my block, whew this is all new to me, But I have to start some where right!! Loving it!!
Mail Man came with my  10 1/2  X 10 1/2 square ruler, SO I was able to finish my first block for my QAYG Bird Quilt, TaDa!!
You can click on the pictures to enlarge them.

Wanted to show you also the back side of the block, Only 29 more blocks to go, I am having a blast!

Here is a picture of the "Chirp Bird Pattern" that I am making
