Hi everyone,




Happy Thursday! I hope you all are having a fabulous day. I hope you have been enjoying our Winter 2016 Collections Launch Week! Be sure to check out our latest launches here.


And speaking of things we enjoy, we absolutely adore when we hear the sweetest things about our fabric collections. And one shop who we just have to feature is Handmade for Hannah. Handmade for Hannah is a shop located in Australia, dedicated to showcasing simple designs in beautiful, high-quality fabrics. Sindy is the owner and designer behind the shop, with her shop name being inspired by her daughter. The wonderful thing is that each item in the Handmade for Hannah shop is carefully handmade by Sindy, so each piece is unique and made with love.


One of her recent handmade items is a custom, scoop-back dress for Julie, featuring our Let’s Go by Andrea Turk fabric. The light orange fox print is so pretty with the white piping around the neck and back line, and picot lace trim along the hemline! It is the most precious of little dresses, and we hope it gets to go on many fun adventures.





Thank you so much for the fabric love, Sindy!! You truly have made our day with your Let’s Go dress. Be sure to check out more from Handmade for Hannah on Instagram and Facebook. Have a great day!





Happy Sewing!

Hi everyone,





Happy Thursday! I hope you all are having a fantastic day. Today is National Hugging Day, so be sure to give a big bear hug to all your favorite people :)


On to one of our favorite people for today’s Thankful Thursday, one of artists – Allison Cole – received an honorable mention in the 3×3 Magazine. The 3×3 Magazine is all about highlighting different artists, illustrations, and designs. Each month is a new theme, such as “children’s picture books” where several artists and illustrations are featured.


Each year, 3×3 Magazine launches their “Annual”, where top juries choose best illustrations in the categories of professional, student, and children’s book. 395 winners from over two dozen countries are featured in the Annual. In their 12th issue, one of Allison Cole’s What’s Cookin’ prints – Kitchen in Cream – was featured as an honorable mention. We are so proud of and excited for Allison. She is such a talented and creative person, and we are so glad to know and work with her.






You can check out all the lovely artists mentioned by 3×3 magazine here. Thank you for mentioning such a wonderful artist and gorgeous design. Also, you can find the What’s Cookin fabric collection on our website! Have an awesome rest of day :)





Happy Sewing!

Hi everyone,





Happy Thursday! I hope you all are having a fantastic day. Have you entered our Farm Stand Giveaway yet? Be sure to head on over to our Facebook Page to enter.


Speaking of giveaways… there’s another chance to win another of our collections! This week, FaveQuilts is hosting a Winter Wonderland by Heather Rosas FQB Giveaway on their blog. It’s the perfect collection because of the season – who says winter can’t be cheerful and fun? Along with the giveaway, they also shared a review of the collection. It is so wonderful to hear what others think of our collections, as well as their ideas as to projects and design combinations. Our favorite part of their review was when Dana mentions her friends having different favorites in this collection: “If we as grown women are giddy over this collection, children will be, too. They will love and appreciate a new quilt made from the charming fabrics in this collection”. We are so glad you all adore this collection as much as we do!





Thanks for the fabric love, FaveQuilts! Be sure to head on over to the FaveQuilts page to read more of their review, and to enter to win a Winter Wonderland bundle! We’d love to hear what YOU think of this collection, and what you’d create. Good luck to everyone entering!


Happy Sewing!
