We’re taking all of you for a quick trip to Ireland today for our Fan Friday!

Bernadette used our Take Flight fabric collection by Vita Lane to make a first quilt and than decided to make a second one with all the leftovers.  Sounds familiar!


She cut all her remaining fabrics into 5 inch squares and organized them together.  She recalls: “I find it hard to go totally scrappy so I arranged the squares diagonally according to how many I had of each color.  I have always loved cross stitch , so I made my own cross stitch label. “

She makes lots of quilts and sells them.  “Sew What’s New ” is the name of her little craft business.

Thanks for sharing Bernadette !

This is a very special FAN FRIDAY!

In June, I  went to Vermont with some friends (see previous blog) to visit the Vermont Quilt Festival!  And they have a special category dedicated to kids!  I always love seeing that section as I know how much work it can be to get our kids excited about quilting.  My two eldest boys have already made a quilt that was featured in this section and next year my youngest one wants to participate.  So I always view this section with great interest!

And this year I got a nice surprise!  I got to see a quilt made by a 9 years old boy using Camelot Fabrics Star Wars Glow in the dark fabrics!  He loves Star Wars and picked out the fabrics AND decided where they would go.  He also quilted the piece on a home machine.


Congratulations on a job well done!  We hope you enjoy your quilt for years to come.
