First of all, you might have noticed that Dragonfly Fabrics, a long-time sponsor of My Quilt Infatuation, is missing from my sidebar. Well, I'm sad to report that Dragonfly Fabrics is closing. The owner, Amy, is pursuing other opportunities and though I will dearly miss the shop, I truly wish her all the best.
That does mean that Dragonfly Fabrics will be hosting a massive sale to clear out inventory starting next Monday. Be sure to bid farewell to the shop by taking advantage of this amazing opportunity and get yourself some goodies at rock bottom prices.
Four months running, and I still looooovvve my custom quilt labels from Finer Ribbon. Lately, I have had many people email me lately and ask exactly which labels I have, since their website has so many choices. So, I figured I should fill everyone in. The exact labels I have are HERE, though that might not be immediately obvious from the photo with the listing.
My labels are 2 1/4 inches wide, and they are printed from side to side on the ribbon, rather than running the length of the ribbon.
When the ribbon is folded in half, my logo and name are on one side, and laundry care symbols are on the other.
Before my labels were printed, the design team sent me a paper proof that was perfectly to scale. I was able to print it, and cut and fold them to be certain that I loved them before they were printed on the ribbon.
To add them to my quilts, I just cut from the spool, fold them in half and stitch them to the back of my quilt underneath the binding! Super easy and so professional!
By the way, if you have already ordered labels from Finer Ribbon and would like to send me a photo, I would love to show examples of other amazing labels in next month's post!
When most people think of October, images of pumpkins, scarecrows, hay bales, bats, and spiders come to mind, but we would be amiss if we didn't notice all of the pink that pops up this month as well. I'm sure I don't have to tell you that October is also Breast Cancer Awareness month, and Shabby Fabrics has a few special projects to commemorate this important cause.
If you want something smaller, there is also an adorable Hope Cosmetic Bag.
Both of these projects are available as full kits with all materials included, and with all appliqué shapes laser cut and pre-fused. Or, if you prefer, they are available as pattern-only.
The pink ribbon is such an iconic representation of Breast Cancer Awareness, and I think it is so amazing that Shabby Fabrics also offers a laser-cut and pre-fused pink ribbon set. These would really make it so easy to turn a pretty, pink quilt into a true quilt for Breast Cancer Awareness.
Great news from Jodie at Fort Worth Fabric Studio- she has just extended her Cool Autumn Sale through TOMORROW ONLY!
My shopping cart always seems to be loaded up at FWFS. I love their bundles, and there are always great things in their remnant/one piece left section!

Christmas Cloth Store. That's right- their Christmas selection is so vast that they have a completely different website for it!
There are several Christmas quilt kits available, including my favorite, Tinsel and Baubles, featuring the Jingle line by Kate Spain.
Another of my very favorite Christmas collections is Evergreen, by Basic Grey and it is available in fat quarter bundles, half yard bundles, and yardage.
Really, the selection in the Christmas Cloth Store is so huge that these few features really don't do it justice. You'll just have to check it out for yourself!
With all of these great sales and coupons going on, you're bound to find lots of fabric goodies, as well as plenty of inspiration to get those projects checked off your list! Happy shopping!
