Welcome Custom Labels 4 U!

Hello everyone – I hope you all had a great weekend! I traveled to Cincinnati to visit my family and take in the International Quilt Festival. The Modern Quilt Guild had some traveling quilts there and it was so fun to see quilts that really speak to my design taste (and some of my friend’s quilts as well)!

Today I’d like to introduce you to my latest sponsor, Custom Labels 4 U. As a quilter, we spend a *lot* of time and effort on our projects. I think labeling them when I’m finished is really important. It’s nice for everyone to know where the quilt is from, and also really adds another level of professionalism.

Custom Labels 4 U provides 100% Egyptian cotton woven labels, available as sew-on or iron-on. They are embroidered, not printed, so will not fade. To me, this is the most important thing.

But if you would like your logo image on your label – you can get printed ones as well. If you also sew clothing, they have a big selection of size and care labels too.

Big welcome Custom Labels 4 U! And thank you for supporting my sponsors everyone!

Welcome LiMa Sews + Salt Water Fat Quarter Set Giveaway!

I’m very excited to introduce to you my first new sponsor of 2013, LiMa Sews! LiMa Sews is an Etsy store devoted to designer quilting fabrics and is operated by a wife/husband team of Linh and Mark. Linh gets to do the fun stuff like browsing and buying fabric collections and putting together daily orders, while Mark is responsible for the business side of the store, as well as the photography and graphic design.

LiMa Sews currently operates as an Etsy store but has big plans for growth including a brick-and-mortar store. The website is currently being updated to add longarm quilting services, but if you want to get in ahead of time, please e-mail Linh at limasews(at)gmail(dot)com. You can find the store at www.limasews.com, or follow Linh’s blog.

I love the modern fabric choices at Linh and Mark’s shop. All the new Pearl Bracelet colors by Lizzy House! These are pretty much my all time favorite prints for stash building.



I’m a big fan of Joel Dewberry’s new Notting Hill collection as well.

If you can’t decide what prints to get in a collection, LiMa Sews also sells precuts and bundles.

To celebrate joining us over here on the blog, LiMa Sews has offered to give one of you a FULL Fat Quarter Set of Tula Pink’s newest line, Salt Water! That’s about as good as it gets!

To enter, just leave a comment! I’d love to hear what you’d do with all these goodies. :) I’ll pick a winner Saturday evening, January 5th. Good luck everyone!

+++ Closing comments to pick one very lucky winner! +++

The winner is Nancy! Nancy said: “Quilt Quilt Quilt – that’s what I do!” – January 3, 2013 at 1:58 pm

Congratulations Nancy ~ I will email you for your address and thank you everyone for entering. :)
