Happy stitching!


Column One of the 4 x 5 Anthology

good afternoon! The Polar Vortex gave us the day off yesterday but today seems to be a little bit better (it is a balmy -5°F here in Paynesville right now).

I had some warmed up beef stew for lunch and am sipping a coffee right now…cuz that walk from the Post Office is a little brisk!


Mom finished up Column One of the 4 x 5 inch Block Anthology earlier this week…i just needed some pictures of the column…

column one

I love that gray in there as a divider between the blocks and then the columns. it really helps each block stand on its own. we do have column one kitted up and available over on the website…linked here.

The Column One kit will be just the 14 blocks…

you do have the option to add on the gray and or the book if you don’t have it…

we’ll be getting these column kits folded and ready to go…if you’d like to make your own Anthology quilt.

happy stitching!


Anthology sew along

yes…a stitch along…featuring those fun rectangular blocks from the 4×5 inch block Anthology book.

Mom will be stitching all 182 blocks for The Sparrow’s Window version which is featured on the front cover.


here are the rules…

*there really aren’t any

mom will work on and hopefully finish 3 blocks a week starting in January…

she will use civil war prints from my stash and the shop to create the little blocks.

we will NOT have single block kits available.

we will have the column of blocks available at the end of each month.

we DO have fat quarter, fat 8th, and fat 16th bundles available that you could totally use for your quilt. the link is HERE.

The blocks are set with a grey print…mom has tentatively decided on this print by Moda Fabrics…Puzzle Pieces in dove. we will be ordering in more of this print and possibly several other greys from the Puzzle Pieces collection…

so if you’d like to join in…grab a book…a bundle or 2…brew a cup of coffee and put on your favorite netflix show to binge (i’m really liking Lucifer right now).

here are the links again…

Anthology block book

Civil War bundles

once have more greys in stock i’ll post the link here…until then if you’d like to order this grey…pop over to the website…here…and at the bottom of the page under “Navigate” click on “Contact Us” and let me know. (the book doesn’t have the yardage amount…just what needs to be cut…so we have to do a little math…we’ll update here once we have an idea of how much is needed.)

hopefully you will be able to join us…we will get to work on the first column.

we’d love to see pictures…be sure to tag us #sweetwatercottonshoppe #sweetwater4x5

time to get things wrapped up so i can head home for a 3 day weekend…

happy stitching lovelies!
