I have a few more things to share with you that I didn’t include in Sunday’s Sew Thankful post.
I wanted to let you know about a few things happening at the Fat Quarter Shop. First of all, they have 20% OFF ALL ART GALLERY FABRICS with coupon code: AG2014. This offer will continue until SUNDAY November 9th, at 11:59 PM CST. I happen to love anything AGF and so I’m excited to pass this news on to you!
Fat Quarter shop is almost at the end of their 2014 Wishes Quilt Along benefiting the Make-A-Wish Foundation. This has been a donation-type QAL, and they are almost to their goal of $10,000! They are auctioning their Wishes Quilt and 100% of the total proceeds will go towards this goal. You can go here for more information.
Looking ahead to next year, Fat Quarter Shop has just introduced their 2015 Snapshots Quilt Along benefiting St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. This quilt has 12 traditionally pieced picturesque (novelty) blocks that capture and celebrate moments of happiness in our lives. The Quilt Along officially starts January 15th, 2015 and they will release the first block pattern on the 15th of each month for the rest of 2015. All they ask from their participants is to donate to St. Jude every time they download one of their patterns.
I don’t think I can resist this one!
I was just introduced to a new (and free) block of the month, Sew Sweet Simplicity, from the talented designer and artist Jacquelynne Steves. I’m just a little bit smitten with everything Jackquelynne does, and I’m sure you will be too!
This BOM just started and will run for five months with 1 or 2 blocks per month (total of 6 blocks) for four months, then borders and finishing for the fifth month. So in addition to choosing which techniques you’d like to do, you can also choose the smaller quilt with just 4 blocks, or the larger quilt with 6 blocks.
Sew Mama Sew is always full of great inspiration and they recently featured a wool applique technique tutorial by Alison Glass (who just released her new fabric line, Handcrafted, and has a new book coming out soon, Alison Glass Appliqué). This is slow sewing at its finest!
O.K. that’s it for now. I just needed to get that out of my system (and into yours)! I hope you enjoy!
