Good Morning World!
Back to the Splendid Sampler!
I had a great start, but have not been great about keeping up!
And here I am, giving the Splendid Sampler crew ANOTHER Block to catch up with! 🙂
I thought it would be fun to start off the new year with a hopeful and anticipatory note. Good Morning World! is inspired by the constant state of renewal we find ourselves in EVERY DAY.
So far without fail, the sun comes up.
And by the time that day is settling down, another day is starting on the other side of the world!
I know that on some days, it can be pretty hard to see the truth in that. Some days can start out very bleak, and sometimes they end even bleaker.
Still, every day is a fresh start. A new day to say good morning to your family, your neighborhood, your city, your world!! A chance to start again.
I have had many days when that has been agonizingly difficult to believe, and I am sure you have as well.
But they keep coming, another day to start again. And again. And again. And now we have another year to start fresh as well.
So Good Morning, World! What adventure will we embark on today?
And just like the sun comes up every day, the flowers come up every Spring too. They don’t always come up the same way or in the same place every year, but they come.
Those are some of the simple little inspirations behind my “Urban Folk” sunburst/flower block.
The pattern for Good Morning World! can be found here on the Splendid Sampler site.
These little bags are my favorite non-quilty thing to make. Here are some done up in Deco State Flowers alongside a sweet little vintage rocking chair pincushion that Linda, my wife, gave me for Christmas.
Here’s another view of my Pink and Green version of Good Morning World! along with the perky little mushroom pincushion Linda’s grandma made decades ago!
And my original Good Morning World! block in the colors of the sky!
I had a little giveaway of scraps from this line previously here.
NOW I have MORE to give away today on THIS post!! Leah at In The Beginning Fabrics sent this sweet little 10″ pre-cut bundle for you with ALL 50 states.
(so that means you will have 4 states that I don’t have!) Plus, I will throw in some more scraps from my bag-making with the 10″ squares.
I think the New Year is a perfect time to give away a bunch of flowers, don’t you?
So just leave me a comment here telling me what you think of my Good Morning World! Block or your favorite flowers or your plans for your fresh start in 2017. Lots of options for you to choose from.
If you feel so inclined, feel free to follow me on Instagram and Facebook and invite all your friends to do the same! I promise I won’t bite or send obnoxious junk mail! 🙂
I will draw the winning name for this some time after the 6th of January, and let the winner know via email.
That’s it for now!
Keep Sewing, Keep Happy,
