Who's ready for some selfish sewing? I am, yay! It's #selfishsewingmonth all over the blogosphere so let's take time to sew something sweet for ourselves. Join our our Just For You Sewlebrity Sewalong and you'll have inspiration all year too.
Each month, Sarah and I are inviting two of our favorite 'sewlebrity' bloggers to make something from our new book, Just For You.
Then at the end of the month, we'll be posting pictures of projects that our fans stitched up. It's so much fun... make sure you check out the projects from February's fan picture post.
I've been counting the days until I could share this month's Classic Blocks: Fresh Fabrics tutorial and giveaway with you! All because of the fabric Blend sent for us to use this month... the delightful collection 'The Makers' from Cori Dantini. It includes several panel prints with lovely 'Makers' sewing, knitting, and painting. They are so pretty and cinderella-ish. And the block that I chose for us to make this month - the Economy Block - is perfect for using fussy cut squares from your favorite fabrics.
Look at this gorgeous bag! I'm so in love. This bag is the Venna Tote (from my book Just For You) as sewn up by Virginia of Gingercake. Virginia is one of our SewCanShe Sewlebrities sewing up items from Just For You all year long!

Having a good iron makes all the difference in my book, so I was super-excited when Panasonic contacted me and offered to let me try their new 360 Degree Freestyle Cordless Iron. Panasonic is a sponsor of QuiltCon 2015 and since I am a MQG member and have a quilt hanging in the show (I guess), they picked me to get this iron, yay!
I've been using it for the past week, and I can honestly say I love it. So here's my honest review:
