I’m so excited to let you know that I have a quilt featured on Moda Bake Shop today. Here it is….
The design is just a traditional pattern set in a barn raising design but it’s made with some really great fabric, Moda’s Morris and Company designed by Barbara Brackman. When I initially saw the fabric I wasn’t sure if I liked it. Many of the colors blend so closely.
Then I decided to give it a try. Oh, I really love it. The blending is beautiful. Stop back on the 30th when I am revealing the February Quilt Square Quilt Along block that I made with the leftover fabric. It’s gorgeous!
This time I tried a new to me quilt batting. Ramona, over at My Fabric Nook, asked me if I would like to give it a try. It’s Quilter’s Dream Cotton Select. It’s super thin yet cozy. It worked great in my quilt machine…I only have good things to say about it.
I’ve been over to Country Threads and have loved the feel of their quilts. They have said that they use the same batting in many of their quilts. Ramona has generously offered to give one of my readers a KING sized batting of their choice so you can try it too. Head on over there to her site…she’s offering a 5% discount on all products along with a $2 discount code coupon (Quilt2012). Ramona ships flat rate shipping so she’s willing to stuff your box full of batting so you can get the most bang for your shipping buck. Shipping rates will be adjusted to meet your order.
Ramona at My Fabric Nook is also offering to send everyone who signs up for a newsletter a free sample card like this if you sign up for her newsletter.
The card is great…Ramona sent one to me. I like to feel things before I purchase them, so this is great. Recommendations for use of the batting is included on each card. Hop on over, sign up for the newsletter, and Ramona will drop one of these in the mail to you.
When I making a quilt for Moda Bake Shop, I send a fabric request to them and they send me the fabric. Well this time around, I did a little miscalculation on the amount of fabric I would need. I was short binding fabric…UGH!
Well the gals at Cabbage Rose Quilting came to rescue.
I discovered that I was short of fabric on December 26th. My usual online fabric stores didn’t have the Morris and Company line so went on line hoping to find someone who did. I found Cabbage Rose Quilting. I’m always leery ordering from new to me places plus you know it’s totally hectic at that time of year to get anything shipped in a timely manner….NOT so with the gals at Cabbage Rose Quilting. I received my package from them very timely and was very impressed. I will definitely shop there again. I dropped Karen a note to thank her and she offered to supply one of my readers a head start of goodies to make this quilt. She is giving away a Jelly Roll of Morris and Company along with a $30 gift certificate!! Isn’t that awesome?
They say to shop local all the time…and I do when I can but sometimes, you can find down home friendly service and good prices on the internet too. I’ve been working with Karen and Ramona and can say….”down home and friendly” describes them both well.
If you’re looking for the pattern to make the quilt remember to head on over to Moda Bake Shop….
