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 firstname.lastname@example.org.”
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!

I’m very happy today to introduce you to my latest blog sponsor, Emily Kennedy of Cuts of Cotton! When I first checked out this new shop, I was really impressed with the website and the great stash building fabrics. I asked Emily to tell me a bit about herself and how she decided to open up her new fabric shop.
Emily: I just started sewing a few years ago and I immediately fell in love with quilting. I found that one of my favorite parts of crafting a quilt was choosing the fabrics. I have also had a dream of operating my own business for quite some time now, but had never really found something I could see myself doing long term. Until fabric:-) So the two came together, my love for quilting and fabrics, along with the desire to have a business, and I opened Cuts of Cotton! We are new, so are still slowly stocking, but my goal is be known for stocking most any basic you might need. I live in Atlanta, GA with my husband who has been so supportive of this little adventure (and has helped lots along the way).
Cuts of Cotton is organized by Color, Designer, Collection and Bundles. Emily carries so many of my favorite fabrics, from Essex Linens…
They even offer really beautiful custom bundles.
This is a great time to start shopping because Emily has given you all 20% off your entire purchase through Thursday, August 15th (midnight EST) with discount code Lemons.
Thanks Emily – and thank you all for supporting my sponsors!

Today I’d like to give a big welcome to my newest blog sponsor, the Fat Quarter Shop! A few years ago when I started quilting and wanted to build up my fabric stash a bit, this was where I bought my fabric. I remember being so incredibly impressed with not only the fabric selection and speed of shipping but how pretty the fabric was packaged. Seriously, I can still picture that first package in my mind!
The Fat Quarter Shop was founded in 2003 by Kimberly Jolly. Kimberly (a quilter) began the shop as a side business on evenings and weekends while still working a corporate position outside the home. From the very beginning, she was committed to delivering top-notch service for every single order and customer. As the Fat Quarter Shop’s reputation grew, Kimberly decided to make it a full-time operation with the addition of her husband and, later, more staff. As a team, the Fat Quarter Shop continues to branch out with the best fabrics, exclusive kits, quilt clubs, BOMs, and more.
This is shaping up to be an exciting year at the Fat Quarter Shop. The 2013 Designer Mystery BOM (Block of the Month) is a stunning row quilt with blocks by 12 amazing Moda designers.
From June 2013 through May 2014, members will receive fabric and instructions for one block and finish with a fabulous quilt setting. This year, they are using the upcoming Avalon collection by the fabulous Joanna Figueroa of Fig Tree Quilts, who has designed the equally fabulous and unique finishing kit. Fig Tree fans, do not miss out!! More info here and sign up before it’s full!
You can keep up the latest at the Fat Quarter Shop through your favorite social media platform:
Thank you for joining in the fun here Kimberly and company! And thank you everyone for supporting my sponsors.

Happy Friday! Today I’m very pleased to introduce you to my newest sponsor, daMommie Cases. When I started emailing with shop owner Tonya, I got really excited. It turns out we have a few things in common. Tonya’s husband’s aunt taught her to sew 18 yrs ago when she was on bed rest with her daughter. (My mom taught me to quilt when I was on bed rest with my son). Tonya is an I.T. Specialist by day and the only female on her team at work so sewing is her way of relaxing. (I worked in I.T. before staying home with my kids and was also one of the only women in the bunch throughout college and my teams professionally). See, I think we must be kindred spirits.
I think these would make awesome Christmas gifts! I love the modern, sleek designs and Tonya’s fabric combinations as well.
How cool is this – Cordurory!
I know you will enjoy browsing Tonya’s shop. Thank you for your continued support of my sponsors!
