QQQ Schedule.. Some News and Some More News…



It’s been a really busy week for me, I get caught up on one thing and another pops up that needs to be done…

I hadn’t expected that it would take so long to work on the Twas The Night Before Christmas blocks, but I believe the time it takes to create the block is worth it in the long run. This is going to be a gorgeous project when it’s finished.

Thursday we start Quilt Qwazy Queens and many bloggers are ready with their posts and giveaways for you on their featured days. We also have some fun specials for you from companies, so be watching the posts here at Seams To Be Sew each day also.

Please read inside for the schedule, the block of the month news, and some news about the release pattern on each day of Quilt Qwazy Queens.

Sue and Sam In Switzerland and Sweden Released

Sue and Sue - Sweden and Switzerland

Sue and Sue - Sweden and SwitzerlandIt was a tough choice to decide which is the Free block and which is the Flickr Reward block. There are so many wonderful things about both countries. I’ve personally never been to Sweden, but I have been to Switzerland… 

Bernina’s are made in Switzerland, Viking in Sweden… those are two good reasons, I own both brands of machine, but the Bernina’s are and always will be my favorite. Bernice is finally home with me after fourteen years with my mom and my sister taking care of her for me. She’s in the shop getting cleaned and ready to sew on a again.. Bernice is a 1230. Bertie is my 530 and she was purchased in 2015 specifically because she has the BSR ability and because my Viking D1 was acting up, I decided to go ahead and purchase a machine I knew had been good to me in the past….

At the same time, I have as a child always loved the story of Heidi.. this to story happens in the backdrop of Switzerland, my favorite is . movie adaptation which featured Shirley Temple.

Sunbonnet Sue & Sam Will Be Released Wednesday…

Sue and Sam In Russia

Sue and Sam In RussiaLike it or not, I know I am running late again, unfortunately, this is due to a little issue with EQ and my not having my embroidery designs folder also.

I went to create the patterns last week, and my Russian Sue in the p7e file was half drawn and Sam was totally missing along with the December’s Sue and Sam and the other three countries yet to be released for the full Flickr Award when you finish all 24 free patterns. I have been working pretty diligently since the weekend to get them redrawn with a different trick in EQ to get them to save. I guess my laptop doesn’t like EQ anymore, even went and bought a new laptop, but I am waiting on EQ to send me a new cd so I can reinstall it on that laptop. Until then the work is going pretty slowly and I do apologize, but their is just nothing I can do. The moving issues have to come first and this comes second.

Update, I apologize, this post was meant to note that I would release on Nov 16, we won’t have internet after this morning until Tuesday Nov 15, I just couldn’t get them to come sooner, so I can’t release until next Wednesday. My apologies for the confusion.

India & Egypt Sue

India & Egypt Sue

First, Thank You so much for bearing with me as we got the movers to take our possessions last week.. They are gone, but they are definitely not forgotten. Worse, they said it could take 60 days to arrive at our new home… I’m telling you when they say it’s on the slow boat to China, they really mean it. 🙂

However, Hooray, I did manage to get this released today!!! I bet you were skeptical? 🙂

This weeks release is Sue In Egypt and Sue In India, with India being the Free block and Egypt being the Flickr Reward. Speaking of FlickR rewards, I know, I know I am very late getting them out to those of you who have requested them, but I will get them out by the end of this week and caught up. Feel free to request any others, I will do them all by the end of this week to get caught up.
