Merry Christmas Everyone!

Posted on: December 25th, 2021 by Lorna McMahon

This is the 9th Blogiversary of Sew Fresh Quilts….

My first post was written on December 24th of 2012. It was more of a New Year’s resolution post than a quilting post, but I kept my promises to myself and then made another New Year’s resolution type post the following year. And since then, it has become a tradition to make a post each year…. to celebrate how “It’s a Wonderful Life”!

Nine years of quilting/blogging has meant an accumulation of lots of stuff. Fabric of course. And many, many quilts. But best of all, these years have given me the opportunity to make so many, many friends. You are my friends and what I treasure above all else in this journey. Your friendship, love and support are what I am truly thankful for this Christmas. You are a gift that is greater than gold – or even fabric!

Having friends like you is what has kept me going through all these years, but ESPECIALLY the last four years. When I shared this post in December 2017, you all rallied behind me when I needed you most.

Things have changed a lot since moving to a new home and starting a new life. And you have been there for me, just like friends are in REAL LIFE. YOU are what makes me look forward to many years to come!
THANK YOU for being here for me!

To celebrate these last NINE years, I am having a giveaway!

There will be 3 MAIN prizes as shown at the top of this post, and LOTS of paper patterns to give away!!!

Please comment below to enter to win. Or comment on my Instagram or Facebook posts!

Winner will be chosen in the New Year!!!

Happy 2022!!!

Keep On Quilting On!

  125. KatieQ says:

    Congratulations! Your patterns are unique and fun. They never fail to make me smile. I love making tops, but am not a confident quilter. Your signature wavy line quilting made me feel more confident about quilting my tops. It made me realize I didn’t have to do “feathers” and other complicated motifs to create a great quilt. Although I own 20 of your patterns, Kishy Fishy was my first and remains my favorite.

    Congrats on all your achievements over these past nine years!

  130. Carol Andrews says:

    Congratulations on the 9th birthday of your blog, which I did the mistake of coming across as I now have several/most of your patterns on my “never ever gonna end” wish list! lol! After going back and reading your post from 2017 it reminded me I just recently “celebrated” 31 years since I did the same with my son’s father. Looking forward to see what you come up with for 2022! Hoping you had a merry Christmas and a better new year than the last one!
