Favorites | Fabric and More!

Happy Friday! I hope you've had a wonderful week and are looking forward to a relaxing weekend with quilting!

For today's Friday Favorites post I thought I'd start out with one of my favorite quilts from my book C&T Publishing Fresh Family Traditions: 18 Heirloom Quilts for a New Generation. This quilt is Sassy...and it uses just 42 charm squares and 42 strips 2 1/2" x width of fabric (a charm pack and a jelly roll plus a little extra of what you will be using for your binding or backing).

I've been wanting to make this one again for quite a while, and I finally

decided on fabric for Dear Mr. Claus jelly roll and charm pack I've been hoarding saving for a couple of years now! Plus, I'll be getting a jump start on Christmas.  I do have a lot of Christmas quilts to decorate with, but I've been wanting to make a Christmas quilt for one of our guest beds for quite some time now!

I'll be sharing progress on this soon!

Another favorite are these Mod Corsage fabrics by Anna Maria Horner that arrived in this months subscription box from Cotton Crates! The colors are so fresh and vibrant...and I hadn't really seen these fabrics up close before. It's always such a treat opening up their box and being surprised by the fabric bundle they've sent that month!

Finally...just one more video to share...this is a fun one if you haven't seen it's got bloopers from some of Kimberly's recent filming. I think it's great that she made this up...there is even a little cameo of me...and I'll tell was always fun on the set because everyone had such a great sense of humor...laughter is the best medicine!


Don't forget to visit the Craftsy supplies sale with up to 60% off on supplies and kits!

Thanks so much for stopping by...and have a fabulous weekend!

I love this quilt - looking forward to seeing it in Christmas Fabrics. I really enjoy the Blooper Video - Kimberly is such a natural, even when making bloopers :)!

I just saw your video on the Creative Grids strip ruler. Great job. It's fun to watch you share your talent through the videos and books.

The blooper video is so funny. Kimberly cracks me up.

It's a beautiful quilt and I'm sure it'll look great with your xmas fabrics!
Love the video I've already seen it but it's so fun to watch.

That is a wonderful quilt. I can't wait to see it in the Christmas fabrics.

Really nice quilt. You used a charm pack and jelly roll of the same line of fabric but you didn't say how much cream fabric you used to double sash/border each block. 2-3yards?

I think that this is a fabulous quilt and I am really glad that you shared it. I can see this quilt being created in so many different fabrics and as mentioned in Christmas fabrics for a wonderful Holiday Quilt. Thank you for sharing this fabulous quilt with us.
