And the Winner is....

Finally, I have chosen a winner for the Challenge. To be honest it was super hard. I really loved all of the projects and so appreciate all of the time and effort that you all put in to this. I thought about it for a long time and I kept coming back to one project that I thought really epitomizes what I had in mind for this challenge. If I had made this item myself I would have been so proud of it.

So ... the winner is Hayley for her Ode to Escher Quilt. You can have a look at her story here

 Thanks to everyone that participated and I hope you had fun.

Quilt-Non The Virtual Convention and Alison Glass Sun Prints

Hi Everyone,

I am not going to Quiltcon... in case you hadn't heard :) So I thought I would run a fun little virtual convention. I have hostesses lined up. Tutorials, challenges, games, and prizes are on the agenda. Come sew along with us. The posts will mostly be on Instagram. I will let you know more info and the Agenda before the time so save the dates the 18th to the 21st for some sewing fun.

Alison Glass Sun Prints are in the shop: Gorgeous of course!

Oops... the last night of the sale that wasn't...

Hi Everyone,

Well, I never said I was perfect. I thought that I had said the sale was through Friday morning not Friday night... guess I should have checked myself. So... since I messed up I will make it up to you. Moonlight Madness will go back up on Sunday night through Monday morning 6pm to 9am. Then on Monday I will have another special sale. So watch for that announcement.

I sewed an itty bit so I thought I would show you. These are sweet little hearts that Sweet Amy Sinibaldi designed for a quilt for her Paperie booth. I made them in different fabrics as Valentines for a couple of special friends. You can find her little pattern here.

Moonlight Madness Sale

Hey Everyone,

We just got 116 bolts of fabric from Cotton + Steel and we are about to get another 30 or so from Andover (Alison Glass Sun Prints Booya!) So again we are in need of some shelf space. So you know me I can't just have any old sale there always has to be a twist. I am calling this one Moonlight Madness.

Every night through Friday this week (1/29) we will have a special sale with prices marked down from 20-50% in our Moonlight Madness section. It will pop up as the first section when you click the shop tab on the website at 6PM Pacific Time. Each morning at 9AM Pacific it will go away and new items will show up again at 6PM. Locals this means it is during times we are not open but come by on Saturday for a special sale all your own. Here's the rules:

1. Be patient it could take us a while to ship as always when we have big sales. Also we may run out of items quickly so be sure to use an email address where we can reach you easily in case we need to contact you.
2. Please do not use other discounts with this sale
3. I am sorry but due to many problems with the last big sale and trying to hold orders to ship all together we will be shipping each order separately. Shipping prices went up today (A TON) but I will keep the shipping prices the same until the end of the week to give you a bit of a break.

Fabulous Fabric Friday... What I have been making.

Hi Everyone,

Well, I have been so busy. I am making all of the new BOM Medallions, Quilts, Blocks, Patterns... it is so fun but kind of exhausting too :)

I am in love with these mini quilts that we are making for the first month of our Mini Quilt of the Month BOM. I just need to get them bound :) We have extended sign ups for a few more days for all of the BOMs if you are interested.

Here is a picture of one of our finished BOMs from this year.

That was a huge thing to wrangle in my tiny sewing corner :)

I made these cute little bags from Fruit Dots and Penny Arcade for gifts for our outgoing SVMQG Board.

This is a tutorial on my tutorials page you can find the tab at the top of the page. These are small drawstring gift bags.

I also pieced together the Quiltcon charity quilt for the SVMQG:

So lots done this past week or two ... phew I think I need a breath.

Cotton + Steel is Here. BOM Deadline Extended.

Hi Everyone,

Cotton + Steel arrived late Monday afternoon and all of the pre-orders shipped yesterday. We have every one of the quilting cottons and it is awesome to see them all on the shelves. We have bundles of everything still so come and get it. We also got the new basics some fun red, orange, and a blue (Sea Monster).

We have extended the deadline on signing up for the new BOM programs until the 31st. We have the fabric for The Local ordered and almost here and I am so excited to get started on it. The beginnings of the Medallion BOM you have already seen but here is a picture of the start of the first Mini quilt...

And in case you missed it... here is the new picture of The Local. You need to make this with us :)
