Fat Quarterly

Oh hey! A give away!

differentsplash

I’m sure that lots of you have been seeing mentions of Fat Quarterly around the internets. Pretty exciting stuff! A new e-magazine with lots of fun patterns and projects for the modern sewist? Yes please!

The first issue launches Tuesday, April 27th. Click on over for loads more info!

Meanwhile, wanna win the first issue?? Just comment on this post! I’ll close comments on Sunday and announce a winner the same day!

Out around the blogosphere

This and that today.

Have you seen that we’re doing weekly posts on the Modern Quilt Guild blog about what different member guilds are up to around the country and world?? Well we are! And while you’re over there, if you haven’t joined yet, check that a member guild hasn’t popped up near you! We’re at an amazing 54 guilds strong… and still growing!

And did you see the amazing give away over at the Fresh Modern Quilts flickr pool?? It’s in celebration of growing to  2000 members and I put together a cute little fat quarter pack that’s included in the tons of amazing prizes.

Otherwise I’m back to work again so I’ll be around here less. Not completely gone but quiet for sure. I promise I’ll be back with a vengeance in June!

How I spent my weekend:

My weekend

A queen – finished in two sittings. Had to get my fill as I’m back to the job today! Happy Monday everyone.

What’s that?

The Modern Quilt Guild has a brand new flickr group??

Why yes, it does! Please join us there if you haven’t already!

It’s National Quilting Day!

Hurray!

Purl warehouse

Jamie, Jane, Liz, Terri and I all took a little outing yesterday to the Purl Soho warehouse.  Their stores might be in NYC, but the warehouse is out here in sunny California.  We had to make a trek down to Orange County, but it was worth it!

So much great fabric all in one place!!

I managed to show incredible restraint and bought only one yard of some Cake Rock Beach dots.  But in the future, when the bank account is a little bit better off, I’ll be going back.  Everything they have on their site, only in person and with no shipping cost?? Yes please!

Homemade for Haiti

Jenny’s having a bake sale at Home Ec. – all proceeds go to Doctors Without Borders so if you’re in LA on Sunday be sure to stop in and buy some delicious baked goods!!
