Wonderland Fabric and a Quilt With No Name.....yet

IMG_1579
Hey friends!

Sorry I've been behind on my QAL postings but a quilt idea has been taking up every free moment I have.
I only have the rows left to sew and hopefully will finish this top today!!!

I can't wait to share this quilt and hope it turns out as awesome as I am imagining it.

In the meantime, in celebration of the 4th of July we're offering free U.S. shipping in our Etsy shop.

I'm thinking of putting some pre-orders up for Katarina Roccella's Wonderland collection for Art Gallery.

Pre-orders make me nervous because if something is back-ordered I don't want people mad at me that they have to wait on their fabric. =/

What do you think?

Shop Closing + Giveaway

Hey everyone just a quick note here to mention that the fabric shop is closing.
It was a hard decision and it makes me really sad but since the beginning of this year I have stressed over it and realized I just don't have the time right now. My older kids require more attention (strange how that works) and Emma...well I had a hard time getting things done with her anyway. :)

Giveawaydaymay6
I will be participating in Sew Mama Sew's giveaway day as usual though so please pop by here on the 6th! Wednesday!
As for now I need to line up some Patchwork City block posts. I am terribly sorry for everyone that has come here for that and only had one post.. Hopefully now I'll have more time for this space.

Thank you all. :) :) :)

p.s. I will still have my little Etsy shop and I may still do some precuts etc there.

 


Spring 2014 Quilt Market Recap (long post)

 

HatboxFQ
Hey everyone!
Quilt Market was amazing!

Cotton + Steel Booth

First of all I am so happy this was my first quilt market. The main reason is that I got to be there for the Cotton + Steel reveal. The result was worth the hype. The fabric is awesome!
I ordered all 5 collections at the end of April even though I hadn't even seen them. After sample spree I had to email my rep and add on the basics because they were just as wonderful as the fun prints.

Sample Spree was insane. Cotton + Steel was in the front so I had planned to stop by there first. I couldn't believe the madness. I remember being empty handed trying to get a bundle of anything and looking at this lady with about 8 bundles in her shirt and under her chin. The bundles started being passed back which I was happy about since I was almost at the very back. I watched as a little Mustang bundle was slowly progressing toward me. I felt the excitement building inside me and stretched my little arm out and then it happened....the dang men came busting in with their long limbs and reached out right in front of me and nabbed every. single. bundle that came my way.
Sigh.

Luckily my mom had better luck on the other side of the booth with some sweet little lady that shared her loot and we ended up with the neutral basics bundle above, Hatbox, and Homebody.

The rest of Sample Spree was pretty uneventful. I got the fabric from Art Gallery I had wanted and I wasn't expecting much from Moda because I heard that's where the stampede usually goes. It's true they had hardly anything left when I got back there.

Here's some of the fabric I ended up with and is already on my site.

I only planned on going to quilt market that Friday. I figured I'd pop in at 9:30am, poke around the booths, meet my Moda rep, and go. I had no idea.

Market was huge and overwhelming. I definitely will plan on at least 2 days next time. I didn't think about all the eye candy of the quilts, plus socializing with designers, and finding NEW fabric companies. I am excited to have some really cute Japanese fabric coming in for bags and other non quilting projects. :)
I think the highlight of market was talking to Tula Pink and Amy Butler. Amy's fabric got me back into sewing and I'm thrilled to be adding her new line Glow into my shop this summer.

I'm not sure when I'll get to go to another market again. We had a bad experience in the hotel we stayed in and the thought of traveling from the hotel to the market alone freaks me out (I had to do a sob story to get my mom a badge and it was for this time only). The new credentials are a pain for those reasons but from what I've read from other blogs it was a great market because the crowd was smaller and more professional so that's good.

Here are a couple more of my favorite photos. My phone died about halfway through so I missed a lot of good stuff (like the whole Art Gallery section)!

You can see more photos on my Flickr page if you haven't already seen them on Instagram.

I'm hoping tomorrow I can sew something. I've definitely been filled with lots of inspiration.  :)

Hey everyone!
That little unicorn in the center is how I feel lately. Just running around but not free.
I have a million projects going on at the moment and hopefully after quilt market I'll be able to sit down and blog about them. I have closed the Etsy shop until I return just to give me a little bit of extra time.
I will be back here on May 12th though for one of my favorite blog parties, Sew Mama Sew Giveaway Day!
Not sure what I should give away this time Charm packs? Patterns? Maybe just a fat quarter bundle again?

I'm off to finish up more things for the Pittsburgh trip now. I'll to do my best to get some fantastic fabric at sample spree for the shop and for a fun giveaway. If there is a particular fabric line or pattern you would like me to hunt down let me know! Or any designer/manufacturer booth you want to see. :)

See you soon!
