In which I talk about the International Quilt Festival and some of the goodies I picked up while there!
And now, for a little announcement! I’ve been promising details, and here they are:
Paper Piecing Vintage will be returning as a Quilt Along during the first half of 2017! If you already have the pattern or were thinking about making the quilt, please do join me as we Quilt Along in 2017!
My day is November 18! Be sure to stop by to see my block and for a chance to win a free copy of the magazine!
My Favorite Things is almost at an end! Be sure to come back December 1 for the final FavThingsBOM Free Pattern Day!
Wednesday through December on Fandom in Stitches!
Get ready for the January – May Quilt Along for 2017 right here on Sewhooked by entering to win a free copy of Paper Piecing Vintage! Already have it? The winner will get the chance to choose a different prize of equal value!
I’ve been promising a new Sewhooked Shop pattern for several weeks now.
What’s holding me up?
This little bit of fabric!
I need about 1/6 of a yard, let’s say 1/4 yard to cover all the bases. All the online shops I’ve found that still have this lovely, out-of-print, Bonnie Blue fabric, sell 1/2 yard cuts per minimum. I’m totally okay with that and would happily buy a 1/2 yard cut.
Then I hit a stumbling block. Priority Shipping is the only option on every site I’ve visited that still has the fabric I need. That drives the total price to well more than what a 1-yard cut would be in a quilt shop. I know a little about shipping prices and online quilt store shopping, being that my day job involves maintaining a quilt store website, and I much prefer actual shipping cost, which is what Honey Bee charges.
SO, why am I rambling on about this? Well, this is where you come in! If you, by some small miracle, have 1/4 yard of this lovely Bonnie Blue fabric in your stash that you would be willing to swap, I will give you one of the following in exchange – either an equivalent amount of rare Harry Potter fabric, a free copy one of my for sale patterns (hardcopy or PDF) version, OR 5 free 1.5″ pin back buttons with the image of your choice.
First come, first serve! I’ll post an update here as soon as I have what I need.
And…thanks in advance!
ETA: Thank you to my fabulous friend Amber who has solved the fabric shortage! YAY, I can finish my new design in just a couple of days!
