Today I’d like to introduce you to my newest sponsor, Christa Quilts! Christa started selling fabric online about 9 years ago when a former quilting student suggested she sell some of her leftover fabrics on eBay. Before then, she taught quilting classes and sold quilts on commission.
About 6 years ago, Christa’s husband Jason suggested she make it their full-time business and they’ve never looked back! He keeps the website running smoothly (his passion) and Christa get to play with all the fabric and design interesting quilt patterns and kits (her passion).
Christa Quilts carries tons of popular designers and brands, including:
· Amy Butler
· American Jane
· Cosmo Cricket
· Kaffe Fassett
· Lucie Summers
· Paula Nadelstern
· Dr. Seuss
One of the best parts of Christa’s shop is FREE US shipping with no minimum purchase required. Orders are shipped within 24 hours of purchase and she can usually accommodate same day requests. She ships internationally, too for a flat $10 rate, anywhere across the world.
Christa Quilts also displays real-time inventory, which is nice when you need an exact amount of fabric for a project.
Now for the great deals for you. For all my blog readers Christa is offering a special group discount. If you enter code G12FRLQ at checkout you will save 5% on your first order. But what makes it even better is that you’ll automatically get 5% off all future orders, too, so it’s like a permanent coupon!
Additionally, all orders that are over $25 qualify for a little freebie – a selection of fabric, patterns, notions or gifts that Christa calls “Christa’s Candy” – guilt free quilt treats!
All of Christa’s customers also receive an automatic repeat buyer discount, too, sort of like an automatic rewards system – the more you buy, the more you save. This is in addition to the special group discount.
In celebration of joining the fun over here on my blog, Christa is offering one of my readers a $20 gift certificate to her shop. All you need to do to enter is leave a comment! I will pick a winner on Wednesday evening (8/22). Good luck everyone and thank you for supporting my sponsors!

I’m excited to start off this week by sharing with you my latest sponsor, Stash Fabrics. This Etsy based fabric shop located in Georgia and is owned by Beth Louche. One of my favorite things about Beth’s shop (besides all the great fabric of course) is that she offers free US shipping on all US orders $50 or more and discounts equivalent to domestic shipping on international orders.
Beth also has the hugely popular new Tula Pink release, The Birds and the Bees. (Also something I’m working with right now!) And I really love that you can order Fat Quarter sets. My favorite is the Sunset palette.
I’m a huge fan of the Cloud 9 organics, both Ed Emberley’s Happy Drawing collection…
and Simpatico – I have the stripes, I love the stripes.
Ombre is super hot right now, and the more I see these dots, the more they tempt me.
And Storybook Lane! Also newly released. LOVE the cuckoo clocks!
You can follow Stash on Facebook to receive updates on sales, giveaways, and NEW fabric. Beth expects to receive Anna Maria Horner’s Field Study, Denyse Schmidt’s Chicopee, Heather Ross’s Nursery-Versy, Sweetwater’s Mama Said Sew, and many more chevrons this month, so keep an eye on her shop.
And now for the giveaway! Beth is generously giving away a Fat Quarter bundle of Art Gallery’s new Indie line in the Midnight Temple colorway.
All you need to do to enter is leave a comment! If you’d like a second entry, “Like” Stash Fabrics on Facebook and leave an additional comment saying you did just that. I will pick a winner Wednesday, August 8th in the evening.
Good luck everyone and thanks again for supporting my sponsors!

Today I’m happy to introduce you to another new blog sponsor, Pink Castle Fabrics. Pink Castle is an online fabric shop owned by Brenda Ratliff of Michigan. I first met Brenda last April at the International Quilt Festival in Cincinnati, Ohio.
That’s her on the left, fun, right? I’ve seen pictures of Brenda’s fabric…let’s just say, she has a lot. I recently ordered some of October Afternoon’s new line, Seaside, from her shop and have been working on incorporating the fabrics into a cute patchwork pillow. (More later!)
She just got in the newest line from Heather Ross, Nursery Versery. LOVE the country mouse prints especially. This fabric is a light weight cotton/linen blend.
If you have a bit of trouble selecting a good combination of fabrics for your projects, Brenda also has custom fabric bundles.
And I definitely must mention the amazing sale section! I’m talking Flea Market Fancy, Summersville, Heather Ross prints, good current stuff!
Brenda is offering some additional discounts to her “Sale” section as well, with the below coupon codes, good through August 5th:
15% off $50 or more – SALE50
20% off 100 or more – SALE100
25% off 150 or more – SALE150
30% off 200 or more – SALE200
You can also find patterns, color cards, floss and thread.
Brenda is very active on social media – you can keep up with her on her blog, Flickr, Twitter, Facebook and Instagram as justabitfrayed. She uses these venues to announce sales, so I highly recommend following her!
Welcome Pink Castle Fabrics and thank you so much for supporting my sponsors!

Hello everyone! Today I’d like to introduce you to my newest blog sponsor, online fabric shop I Don’t Do Dishes. Boy can I related to that shop name, how about you?
I Don’t Do Dishes is an Etsy shop owned by Caitlin McIntyre. Exceptional service is Caitlin’s main priority, and she promises same-day shipping if payment is received by 3pm Central Time. She cuts generously, so there is no need to worry about having squaring-up room.
I first “met” shop owner Caitlin when I purchased a Michael Miller Couture Cotton color card from her shop.
Caitlin not only carries the color cards, but several colors from the line (you know I love solids!) If you’ve never used the Cotton Couture solids, you will not be disappointed, they feel extremely high end.
In addition to the cotton couture, she just got in the highly anticipated Madrona Road by Voilet Craft. I seriously LOVE this line and predict those text prints go fast.
I Don’t Do Dishes not only carries fabric but also offers patterns (which ship free in the US!) and thread, including Aurifil. I just started using Aurifil last month and I am most definitely a convert. Caitlin even carries interfacing and Quilter’s Dream batting, the batting I use exclusively!
Caitlin is offering 10% off all orders through the end of July using coupon code FRESHJULY. You can keep up with the latest fabric happenings on Facebook. Happy shopping everyone and thank you so much for supporting my sponsors.
