25% OFF ALL ORGANIC FABRIC AND QUILTMANIA MANIA
Is is possible that Spring has actually arrived? I'm sitting here with the windows open and it hasn't snowed in a full week, so it's possible. I'll celebrate anyway, even if I turn out to be wrong. Because honestly, if Spring doesn't stay this time we all need to start dancing and singing and offering our overpriced skincare up to the gods. Or our children. One or the other. I don't know if you read the Laura Ingalls Wilder book, The Long Winter, but I sure did. That was about the year Spring never came to the little house in the big woods, or on the prairie or the banks of Plum Creek, I can't remember which, but it was a real bummer. They had to burn their furniture to stay warm, and I think they might have eaten each other by the end. And worse of all, it really happened. Apparently there was a volcano somewhere and the ashes made of mess of things. Something like that. Ever since reading that book, I'm always deeply relieved when Spring finally arrives, and usually a bit surprised too. "What did we do to deserve this?"
So I've been tense the past few weeks. But now it seems all is well after all.
So a SALE is in order. Of course. And what better to put on sale than beautiful fresh organic fabric? We just got in a really fun collection from Birch Fabrics called Frolic by Rebekah Ginda:
And we made a great Quilt Kit too:
A precious baby quilt called Break Dance by Melissa Lunden.
And there are always lots of other great fabrics from Birch and from Cloud Nine too - and they are all on SALE! Don't miss it! The discount code is MANIA and it's good for 25% OFF until April 9, 2013.
My dear friend Marilyn Foreman of Quilt Moments asked me to come up with a modern version of one of her patterns, and so we did, and Cindy and I made it and brought it to Market and QUILTMANIA took it with them back to France.
And we have not seen it since but lo and behold, it appeared right there on their pages in this very issue and we are offering kits, of course! We didn't get a chance to get a good photo of the quilt before it left us, sadly. You can see it in the issue, of course, but here's a not so great photo:
It's called Ribbon Rings.
We'll be getting the quilt back after it completes it's Grand Publicity Tour of the World, and we will make it available for autographs and photos, until it gets too full of itself and has to be put in a corner. It's made using the Charleston Farmhouse collection by Felicity Miller for Free Spirit Fabrics. You can get a kit here. Marilyn's pattern is here. We will have the magazine any day! It's a very easy and fun quilt to make.
That's it for now. Except for one thing - is anyone playing Candy Crush? Because I really need some lives.
Talk to you soon,
