Rita at Fabric Please! has lots going on right now. She has just received yardage of three prints from Denyse Schmidt's newest line, New Bedford, with full fat quarter bundles arriving soon, as well as prints from the vibrant and fun Salsa collection.
One important thing to mention regarding Fabric Please! is that prices on the website are listed in Canadian dollars, which means that although they may look a little higher, when you convert to US dollars, they really are quite reasonable. Rita is working on getting all prices listed in both CAD and USD, but in the meantime, one CAD equals .75 USD, so just multiply the price per yard by .75 and you have the US price. Easy peasy.
Fabric Please! is sponsoring the first giveaway of the month! Up for grabs is 1/2 yard of each of the prints in stock from the New Bedford line! These prints are sure to blend well with other fabrics in your stash, and they are just a little sampling of the collection.
EPP seems to be all the rage lately, and even though I don't enjoy hand sewing myself, I fully appreciate all of the hard work that goes into some of the amazing creations I see floating around the internet and Instagram. Did you know that Fat Quarter Shop is hosting an EPP Sew Along? Get all of the details, supply list, etc. HERE!
At Fort Worth Fabric Studio, they do a LOT of cutting. Of course, if you put together custom mixed bundles each week for your customers, cutting is just all part of the game. One of FWFS's favorite little helpers are True Grips Non-slip Rings for Rulers. They stick to your ruler, and create a little bit of friction against your fabric so that while you cut, that ruler stays put!
And just because I think that Jodie's bundles are the bomb, I can't help but show you her latest. Every single week, Jodie mixes several fabric lines to create a perfectly coordinated bundle of 8 prints. She calls it her Friday Bundle Batch!
If your love is appliqué, then the newest quilt kit, Blooming Butterflies, from Shabby Fabrics might be right up your alley. This is available as a full quilt kit, as well as a pattern.
If you've never tried appliqué, but want to take the plunge, Shabby Fabric boasts that all appliqué shapes are pre-cut and pre-fused! All you have to do is peel off the paper, iron in place on your background fabric, and stitch down. It doesn't get much easier than that! And what a colorful, happy quilt!
If you've kept up with the happenings around my blog for the last few months, then you know that over the summer, I designed custom ribbon labels for my quilts from Finer Ribbon, and that I absolutely adore them.
Well, three months in, I can say without a doubt- my feelings have not changed one bit! I am still completely in love with adding such a professional touch to my quilts, and I love that the ribbons are soft, fully washable, and printed in full color.
Don't worry if you aren't sure what you want on your labels. Peter, and the entire team at Finer Ribbon will walk you through the process, and send you a printable sample for your approval to be sure that you love them.
