A few weeks ago, I received an email from a brand new fabric shop that was interested in sponsoring this blog. I went on over to check out Gotham Quilts (such a cool name) and was so excited! A beautiful new shop full of beautiful new fabrics! Gotham Quilts was started just this year by fabric and quilt lovers Andrea and Ivete. They live in Manhattan and plan to open a brick and mortar storefront next year.
I did some poking around their shop – so easy to navigate. You can shop fabric by Category, Designer, Manufacturer, and Color. They carry a ton of the new American Made Brand solids. I haven’t used these but they are on my list! Love the idea of supporting fabric manufacturing in my home country.
Ivete is a huge Tula Pink fan, and Gotham Quilts carries her latest collection Moon Shine.
I loved Far, Far Away by Heather Ross the first time around (when it was on double gauze), but I was even more thrilled when it was reprinted on quilting cotton!
Now for the discount! If you sign up for the Gotham Fabrics newsletter, you will receive a coupon for 10% off your order of full priced fabrics. You can find the sign up on the very bottom right of their shop, under “NEWSLETTER SIGNUP”. You can also keep in touch with them on Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest and Instagram.
Welcome Gotham Fabrics!

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.

Today I’m very pleased to share with you a brand new sponsor of Fresh Lemons Quilts, Pink Chalk Fabrics! I’ve been a fan of Pink Chalk Fabrics for quite some time. In fact, I was curious when I discovered owner Kathy Mack’s shop so I went digging in my email Inbox. It looks like I first ordered from her in 2011 – Moda Bella Solids in Stone. Still a favorite!
Tons of notions:
Zippers in a wide range of colors:
And…nail polish! That’s right, you can actually have your nails match your favorite fabrics.
One thing I really recommend, sign up for Pink Chalk’s newsletter, “Chalk Talk”. I receive it and it is always full of great information, including their “What Goes With What?” series. Super helpful when trying to coordinate fabrics.
Big welcome Pink Chalk Fabrics and thank you so much for supporting my sponsors!

In Monday’s giveaway post, I mentioned I have a new sponsor here on the blog. Today I am very pleased to introduce you to My Modern Quilt Shop. My Modern Quilt Shop is part of owner Lisa’s lifelong love of sewing and quilting. I asked Lisa to tell us a bit about how she got started with her shop.
Lisa: “A self-taught first generation quilter, I got my first sewing machine at age 12 and proceeded to make a quilt for my first project. Years later I discovered rotary cutting, quilting with friends, and longarm quilting. But it wasn’t until the internet started buzzing about modern quilting that I felt I found my niche. I love to see what others are making and hear from my customers. If there’s a line of fabric you’d like to see in the shop, send an email to email@example.com.”
My Modern Quilt Shop has a great special offer for all our readers here — coupon code 15lemons for 15% off your order thru January 31st. Thanks Lisa!
I love checking out new shops. My Modern Quilt Shop stocks a good number of what they call “modern basics” such as Lizzy House Pearl Bracelets (my favorite!), Dear Stella Confetti Dots, and Pure Organic Solids. They often carry the entire line so you can find your favorite colors easily.
They also carry a number of designer collections. Jeni Baker’s Nordika – yum!
Carolyn Friedlander’s Botanics – I’m working with this right now, it’s awesome!
I hope you will join me in welcoming Lisa to the site and thank you so much for supporting my sponsors!
