One of the best parts of running a fandom website is getting to indulge in the things I love best! I’m a huge fan of Jeremy Brett in the 1980s version of Sherlock Holmes.

Summer of Stitching 2014, A Design Invitational on fandominstitches.com

This summer, Fandom In Stitches is hosting The Summer of Stitching and encouraging our quilting community to contribute designs in a variety of themes.

First up is Sherlock Holmes, which is what inspired today’s design. The first installment for The Summer of Stitching is June 11, 2014 on Fandom In Stitches, so be sure to stop by!

While I’m not eligible for the prize (it doesn’t make much sense to give it to myself!), I couldn’t resist participating and hope to design at least one new pattern for each theme over the next few months.

The Summer of Stitching

Summer of Stitching 2014, A Design Invitational on fandominstitches.com

Over on Fandom In Stitches, we have shared an open invitation for our summer event, The Summer of Stitching!

This event is an opportunity for new and experienced Designers alike to share in our fandom love by creating patterns to share with the Fandom In Stitches quilting community. We will be sharing 12 themes over the course of the summer and invite you to design a quilt block around that theme.

My first #summerofstitching design in progress! #jeremybrett #sherlockholmes #fandominstitches #embroidery

The first week’s theme? Sherlock Holmes! I’m already working on my pattern, which is based on one of my favorite all-time versions as portrayed by Jeremy Brett.

You can read more about how to participate and the fun prize participants will be eligible to win right here!

I do hope you’ll join us!
