Welcome Cuts of Cotton! Plus a Coupon :)


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

to Lizzy House Pearl Bracelets

to Alison Glass Lucky Penny.

They even offer really beautiful custom bundles.

You can stay up to date with Cuts of Cotton’s sales and new arrivals by signing up for their newsletter at the bottom of their shop website. You can also follow on Facebook and Twitter.

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!

Welcome Fat Quarter Shop!


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!

Welcome daMommie Cases!

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.

Tonya offers a variety of great handcrafted items in her shop: E-Reader cases, iPad cases, portfolios, business card holders, and more.

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!
