So, let's start off with the fabric news and giveaways! We'll start out with Shabby Fabrics! This month, they have several new collections in!
If you're feeling patriotic, check out Let Freedom Ring by Nancy Gere for Windham Fabrics. Or, if you're like me and you like to get a jump start on you holiday sewing, NOW is the time. All of the new holiday lines are in, like Glisten, Merry Taupe, Holly's Tree Farm, Holiday Magic, and one of my favorites, Evergreen!
Shabby Fabrics is graciously offering a 9 FQ set of Evergreen in the Marshmallow color way. Aren't they beautiful? And it looks like they would blend easily with other holiday lines as well (which I always love).
If you haven't heard, Fat Quarter Shop is now offering Aurifil thread boxes in three different weights, and in several color ways. If you have never used Aurifil thread, you are missing out! It is super-strong, produces very little lint to clog up your machine, and quilts beautifully.
Fat Quarter Shop is the sponsor for the second giveaway of the month! They are giving away a fat quarter bundle of Heather Bailey's Ginger Snap line, in the Pepper color way- gorgeous!
So, let's switch gears and get to this week's NTT, shall we? Amongst all of the laundry, meeting with the house/pet sitter, cleaning (in preparation for said house/pet sitter), and packing, I had one quilting goal this week- to finish this quilt top.
Remember Country Girl Chic, the camo and hot pink quilt, I made in the spring? Well, this one is its brother... literally. Country Girl Chic was for a teen girl who was redecorating her bedroom, and guess what? Her older brother wants one in camo and orange, and requested a brick pattern for his room. I have to be honest here. I am really struggling with this one because the fabrics are NOT my style at all, and unlike Country Girl Chic, the pattern doesn't really help them out. I had much more fun finishing up my latest Shattered Rainbow Encore quilt. On the plus side though, the brick pattern went together really quickly.
Last week's party had some real gems, like this rainbow mini, from Heather from Quilts Actually.
or this Medallion Log Cabin from Tanya Quilts in CO-
or this beautiful scrappy purple quilt from Shauna's World!
