November Fresh Sewing

Oh my!  It’s December already.  HOW?  Tomorrow is the Wine Tasting and Silent Auction fundraiser for my daughter’s preschool that has been occupying the forefront of my thoughts for the past month.  I’ll be so happy when it’s behind me.

This is my very time participating in Fresh Sewing Day at Lily’s Quilts.  It’s a place to share finishes (or a favorite finish) from the past month.

In November, I managed THREE mei tai finishes!  I hope these carriers are soon snuggling squishy babies and giving the parents the freedom to actually use their hands.  Hooray for babywearing!


I also posted tutorial for two different quilt blocks.  The spider web block is an update on an existing tutorial from House of A La Mode.  My version makes a 12.5 inch finished block and uses a template to cut out the center pieces of the block to reduce fabric waste.

The other is my “Multiples of 3” block, which I created and used for my 4×5 Modern Bee blocks this quarter.


Oh, and I wanted to mention, I am trying to interact more on social media, so I would totally give you two thumbs up if you would come over and Like Sewing by Moonlight on Facebook!

    Hi! It’s nice to find your blog 🙂 especially as you have such great tutorials! I really like the Multiples of 3 block, and a quilt of those with inspiration from the Value Added Quilt Along that’s been going could be brilliant. I love how you’ve chosen to back yours in alternating grey and white, such a good idea! Do you mind if I pin it, so I can always find it again? x

    I love your baby carriers! So colourful and a great alternative to the boring old baby Bjorns! My daughter is at pre-school too. Good luck with the auction. Love those blocks by the way. Fab colours! I shall like you on facebook now. Would you like my Quilt Candy page too !! PS I love the name of your blog. I can relate to sewing in the moonlight. 😉
