Yay! We received our sample spree Moda fabric last week and it is like Christmas for me over here.
We have lots of precuts of some upcoming lines next year.

The April Showers fat quarter bundle has already been purchased but we still have jelly rolls, charm packs, and mini charms of it available.

Daydream by Kate Spain is my new favorite line. I can't wait to get our yardage next year, hopefully February.

The other new fabric I am really excited about is Sphere by Zen Chic.

It's hard to find gender neutral fabric lines and I think this would be great for a male or female. There is a fantastic quilt tutorial made out of one of these jelly rolls HERE. that I am planning to make in the future.
You can also enter to win a jelly roll of Sphere on our FaceBook page. Just "like" the photo of it to be entered to win. :)
We will be leaving for vacation Thursday (26th) afternoon so any orders placed on that day and Friday will not ship until Monday. You can save 20% though through New Years with coupon code CHEER in our Etsy shop for the delay.
Have a great weekend!

Table for Two Quilt

 

IMG_9543
Happy December!
Has anyone started making Christmas presents yet? I am nearing the end of my handmade gift to do list.

I've been working on this quilt the past couple of weeks for my mom. It really is a quick little quilt project using my favorite pre-cut ever..A JELLY ROLL!!

I'm not one to pick favorites but I just love how these 2 blocks came together:

I think I like them so much because of the white fabric bordering the darker 4 patch. I may do another one of these and dip into my ever growing low volume stash.

All in all with the multiple distractions I had this part didn't take too long. I am sure it could be done in a few hours one day if you could sew non stop.
The only thing I have left to do is figure out the border fabric then quilt & bind it. I am using a black tone on tone chevron  for the back and a red print for the binding. I'm debating on either some Bonnie and Camille stripe or their little scallop print. I'll have to see what looks good once I get the border on. Red is an iffy color to match.

I hope to be done with this next weekend. I went to Joanns and picked up some batting today but am going to take a break the rest of the weekend from pretty much anything productive. I felt bad not doing a black Friday or cyber Monday fabric sale but I had so much to do...like buy fabric from other people and join some more Craftsy courses. They are all 19.99 or less right now and I may get another one or two before the sale is done. I have so many in my wishlist.
I'll be back soon with some of my fabric purchases this weekend. :)
