OMGoodness! I missed it...

Hi Everyone,

So this morning as I was getting ready to head into the shop (literally in my undies) I realized that I missed posting on my 5 yr Blogiversary. I can't believe it has been five years since I quit my corporate job to stay home and home school my daughter.  Back in the day I did a lot of sewing... Here is my first post ... Uh oh... I just discovered that none of the pictures from August of 2009 show up anymore. All of the September ones are showing still. Look I was still a traditional girl then hehe.

I don't remember making this quilt... I wonder where it went... I wonder if I gave it to someone or if it is in the bottom of one of my piles somewhere... It was Nov 2009... look perfect points!



These two pictures are for all of my friends that know how much I love brown and batiks NOT!

This one won a design contest.

What! Applique?


Then I discovered Tula Pink....


Sad thing? I didn't know who Heather Ross was but I had some tiny pieces of Mendocino 

Here is where I announced I was opening the shop

Enough of the walk down memory lane :) Thanks to all you lovelies that have been following me since the beginning. Lots of you have been here since before the shop opened. Just hanging out being my friends. I have watched a bunch of you get famous :) Quilty Famous. I love you all.

Hugs,
Julie

Free or Discounted Shipping and a Giveaway

Hi Everyone,

I have been trying to figure out a way to give my international customers a little shipping cost relief without putting myself out of business. So this is what we are doing:

We are having free shipping in the US and discounted shipping internationally promotion. It will be calculated at checkout. This promotion is good through Friday the 8th of August.

If you buy 3 yds or more in the US, shipping is free. If you fill a flat rate envelope internationally, which is 8 yards or more, then shipping is half price.



 International kids... this means you can get up to 30 yds of fabric for $30 in shipping or 8 yds for ... $11.98, or 18 yards for 23.95 not bad right?

How about a little Giveaway? I thought you might like that :)

How about a fat quarter bundle of this sweet collection in the Pink colorway from one of our favorite international designers, Sarah Fielke. Such a sweet lady and such a sweet collection. 

To win leave me a comment about how you most like to get updates from online shops. Facebook, Instagram, Blogs... other. It is great to get more info rather than less so if you want to tell me why you choose that method that is a bonus for me. You do need to answer the question at least, though, to qualify. Okay? Okay. I will choose winners next Friday morning 8/8/14.

Have a super weekend!

Giveaway is closed!

Name that fabric... Found thanks everyone!

We found it thanks everyone!

Here it is in the row of the quilt:

Looks a lot like a Lotta Jansdotter print but it isn't. My Friend Ali ran out in the middle of her quilt and needs to find a tiny bit more of it. Let us know if you know what it is.

Thanks so much!
