I did manage to whip up a (late!) block to send to quilts for Boston a few weeks back! It felt good to be at the sewing machine and also to contribute something to their cause!
The Sewcial Lounge for a Nordika Launch Party! There will be treats and refreshments and we will be giving away some fabric too! There is a Facebook event for the party here. A big thanks to Sara for hosting this event and for her support! Hope to see you there!
Offset Quilt featuring Color Me Retro early this year for the May/June Issue of Quilty! You can find the full pattern in this issue along with lots of other great quilts! The folks at Quilty also have a kit available for this pattern on their website! You can find it here. You can find a copy of this issue on newsstands and on their website, here.
Quilt magazine, you can find this fantastic Blueberry Parfait quilt designed by the Art Gallery Fabrics team! They were kind enough to feature Color Me Retro in this fun quilt! Fat Quarter Shop has put together a kit for this quilt pattern, which you can find here! You can find this issue on newsstands.
Nordika in Issue 5 of Sew-it... Today! The extra cool thing about this feature, is that I took the photo! It was a little nerve wracking but fun to be involved in that part of the process! Plus, it was an excuse to buy fancy muffins! You can find this issue on newsstands soon!
Droste's Cocoa tin at a local antique mall. Unfortunately it was really pricey. I love tins though, so I searched Etsy a few times looking for one. They were either not in good enough condition or too expensive. Finally last week the stars aligned! It's in nearly perfect condition and was about a third of the price of the first one I saw. Isn't it pretty? I actually use this brand of cocoa too, cool!
