So, the good news is, I’m done with the Modern Solids Challenge quilt! WooHoo! I finished up over the weekend and got some pictures earlier this week. I still don’t have the voting/contest information. So I’m going to wait and post the quilt once I can get you all a link. In the meantime…there’s a little peek on Instagram.
While we wait, I have some pretty new fabrics to show you. Last month, Fort Worth Fabric Studio asked me to put together a “Birthday Bundle” for my birthday month (which just happens to be October). I think playing with fabric just might make getting older more bearable. The fabrics in the bundle are pictured in the top photo of this post, and you can buy them at their shop. I happened to receive them the same day as some Cotton + Steel arrived as well. Don’t they look great with this pink? Happy accident!
I also recently bought some of Elizabeth Olwen’s new Wildwood collection for Cloud 9 Fabrics. I paired it with some prints from Bonnie Christine’s Winged collection for Art Gallery Fabrics. Don’t they look awesome together?
Today is my daughter’s birthday. She is just such a sweet, special girl. I’m really so lucky to be her mom! I think I’m going to spend the day working on her Halloween costume. Maybe I’ll even come close to finishing it!
Today I’m welcoming a new sponsor to the blog ~ I’d love to introduce you to Sew Modern! I met shop owner Lauren nearly 2 years ago, in a Starbucks at QuiltCon! It was so great talking to her, and I was thrilled when she contacted me to start sponsoring the blog.
Sew Modern is a brick and mortar shop located in Los Angeles, California, as well as an online store. For those of you that aren’t lucky enough to live in southern California (like me, but I was born there!)…doesn’t this look so fun and welcoming? I love knowing my fabric comes from a happy home.
They also carry every color of Robert Kaufman Kona cotton solids and many other solids as well. You know I love solids!
You can keep in touch with Sew Modern by subscribing to their blog (tutorials! recipes! ~ subscription on the righthand column of their blog), signing up for their newsletter, Twitter, Facebook, Pinterest, YouTube and Instagram.
And now for the coupon! Sew Modern has generously offered all of you a 20% discount off regular priced fabric in the shop, using coupon code FRESH20. The code is good through Tuesday, October 7th. Thank you so much Sew Modern! And thank you to all of you for your awesome support of my sponsors.
Just a very short post so you know I’m not sitting around over here. I’ve assembled the Modern Solids Challenge quilt top, pin basted it and am starting the quilting. From these peeks, is is what you expected?
So close to being finished! Back to work!
Today I’m very pleased to introduce you to a new sponsor of my blog, Shabby Fabrics. Shabby Fabrics is an online quilt shop that carries beautiful quilt shop quality fabrics ~ many florals, kits, block of the months and patterns. They also offer free shipping on domestic orders over $75.
I did a little browsing around Shabby Fabrics and thought I’d share my favorites! Believe it or not, it’s the perfect time to start sewing for the holidays. This Christmas Pure and Simple line is so fun!
I’m in love with Heather Bailey’s sweet new line, Up Parasol.
I’m always looking to add text prints to my stash, and these from Lakehouse Dry Goods are absolutely perfect!
I always get emails about what type of basics I buy. Shabby Fabrics carries tons of dots from Michael Miller – Ta Dots, Kiss Dots and Pinheads. As well as a huge variety of stripes! Love the blenders by Patty Young.
You can keep in touch with Shabby Fabrics on Facebook, Twitter, YouTube (tons of video tutorials!), Pinterest and Instagram. I hope you will go check them out, and thank you so much for always supporting my sponsors!
