Fun Things!

Hello and happy Saturday! I don't usually check in here on the weekend, but I have a couple of fun things to share with you today that just couldn't wait until next week! 



 First, I had to share Fran's beautiful version of my Favorite Things quilt that she


just finished up in our recently released Creekside fabric collection!  Isn't it beautiful?! (Pattern available here). I just love Fran's choice of outer background for her quilt too, and can't wait to see it all quilted!  Fran is the owner of Village Dry Goods in Brigham City Utah, and I'll be visiting there October 11th and 12th, 2017 to present a trunk show/lecture and teach a two-day workshop for this quilt.  Sign-ups are still available here (and Fran has kits available for this as well)!



 And...in other exciting news, Rhonda from Olie & Evie (one of my fantastic sponsors) is offering a $30 gift certificate to one of my readers!  She also has a discount code available now if you want to do any shopping--simply use the code AQL10 for 10% off of your order.  Rhonda still has pre-cuts and yardage of our earlier Collection Desert Bloom which are getting harder and harder to find these days.

To enter the giveaway just stop by Olie & Evie and then come back here to leave a comment that you visited, mentioning your favorite fabric in her shop.  I'll keep the giveaway open through Monday evening...good luck!

Thanks so much for stopping by!

I loved the metallic confetti fabric she had listed for presale, but am more tempted by some of the premade items she shows.

I took a look at Olie &Evie-they have quite a few options. The fall breeze ombré bundle caught my eye for some reason. I have not used solids solely in a project, but have been thinking about doing so for some time now.

What wasn’t there to like. Great fabric lines to pick from. My favorite was the HOP SKIP JUMP bundle and the The Farmers Wife 1930’s Sampler Quilt book. If it wasn’t for people like Sherri at A Quilting Life we would have never found this wonderful place. I have Olie & Evie bookmarked,

I love Alison Glass, but could be tempted by so many other fabrics as well!

Picking a favorite fabric is a bit like picking a favorite child; I love them all. However, I was pleased to see some Hazelwood, which is very hard to find and I would love to add to my collection.
