Fun Tutorials & More!

Happy Monday! I arrived home Saturday after being away for a few days having a fabulous time working on some fun projects with Kimberly and everyone at the Fat Quarter Shop.




 We talked about the Valley fabric collection my daughter Chelsi and I   



designed for Moda fabrics which will be shipping next month (yay!) and we also filmed some super fun videos while I was there. The folks at Fat Quarter Shop will share the  terrific projects, video tutorials, and even free patterns with you soon! I can't wait to be able to share it all with you, and I'll be sure to let you know as each video/tutorial/project/pattern is released.

(Because we were so busy...I didn't have much time to get my camera out, so I'll share with you via some Instagram post photos today).

One of the free tutorials will be for a project bag...what is even more fun about this project is that you can make 2 bags (large and medium) with just one mini charm pack. Plus we filmed the zipper installation so it will be super easy if zippers are something that worry you!


 There will also be a free tutorial for a Christmas stocking...



 ...and a free tutorial to make the cutest pincushion ever.  It's made even more cute with this adorable twill ribbon that has fun little sayings printed on it. I didn't even know about this ribbon until I arrived, and I'm already dreaming up lots of ways to use it!



I had a lot of fun (although I was a little nervous about the video-taping). What I'm most excited about though, is that everything will be free for readers. Did I mention there is going to be a free quilt and mini quilt pattern, too? I can't wait.

Now I've got to get things cleaned up so I can get back to sewing!

Thanks so much for stopping by!

Love your blog! I discovered that twill tape a few years ago at a Chicago show and have loved it ever since! I like to use it when wrapping gifts for quilts friends!
