I’m part of a vibrant online quilting bee called SewConnected 2 on Flickr that started over a year ago and this past March was finally my month to send out my fabrics to the very talented group for them to sew quilt blocks for me! After I’ve received all the quilt blocks back, I’ll sew them together to make a truly unique quilt made by my friends. My good friend Sonja just posted of the most awesome mushroom quilt block for me from her own original paper piecing patterns inspired by my mushrooms I decorated my office with!

Isn’t she fantastic!! Look out for her pattern for these mushroom critters on her blog and Etsy shop coming soon! She even made me this super cute hedgehog block as a bonus and used extra material from one of her husband’s old blue linen shirts! Hurray for her creative upcycling!

Check out her inspiring blog and find more of her amazing original paper piecing patterns and tutorials on the right-hand side of her blog and join her Flickr group – Artisania Patterns Quilt Gallery! Sonja is a master of creating beautiful magic with fabric through creative sewing and fabric manipulation! I’ve always been awed and inspired by everything she makes and she’s always the most joyful and cheerful person! I’m so blessed to have gotten to know her through quilt block swaps and blogging :) Thank you, Sonja, for being a beautiful and inspiring light in my life!
