Get on Board!

Hi Quilting Friends,

September is “National Sewing Month”, and we’re excited to join our friends Melva (Melva Loves Scraps) and Brenda (Songbird Designs) to celebrate our love of sewing! We hope that you’ll enjoy the projects that we’re sharing with you today.

First, our backstory!

Sharon and Susan both came to love sewing because of the example set by our Mom and our Grandmothers. We were 4-H kids growing up, and we both learned to sew from Mom. We both began quilting as young wives and mothers, in the mid-1980’s, each learning techniques and developing our own styles since we lived so far apart. We eventually (1994) worked things out so that we live much closer to each other in Houston, TX. We started our “Ms P” pattern design business in 2016, and here we are today!

The theme for this blog hop is “Get on Board with Sewing”, so we chose to feature our “Hibernation Vacation” quilt design-

  1. I thought they were cute as blocks! Then!!! The Christmas stockings with sequins are absolutely adorable!!!!


  2. Hi Sharon and Susan, your quilt is just adorable. We used to live near Houston, from Kingwood to Katy to Magnolia. We are in north Texas now. It’s nice to “meet” you. 🙂 I’ve been down a rabbit hole for the past 10 minutes perusing your patterns. They are gorgeous – especially Mimi’s Field of Flowers and Pieces of Christmas – love!


  3. What fun projects! Thanks for sharing and for being a part of a greater group of bloggers as we all celebrate National Sewing Month. Blessings! M
