Hello Friends, another Tuesday, and another day for me to share my 2-cents! I hope you have been well. After a cold winter, I think spring is nudging its way at where I live! Pretty soon, it will be strawberry season! Many of you have liked making my Just Add Shortcake strawberry cake. Here is a version curated with Pat Sloan’s upcoming fabric line called Bird Song. The fabrics have a high-street Liberty look, a little from the usual bright reds that I have seen used to make this quilt!
Preorder your kit HERE.
Oh, I have also been making these scrappy blocks for reproduction quilt. Details on this quilt are forthcoming later this year. Start saving your 6″ scraps if you are interested!
A few weeks ago, someone asked what I use to store my fabrics. I wish I could tell you I have designer custom made storage cubes for my fabrics in my sewing room. Since I have a child I still need to put through college in the not-so-distant future, my storage cubes constitute a hodge podge of Ikea storage bookcases and cubes that were at one time used for toy or book storage. So, they are of different colors. I look around, my storage cubes and cupboards are in red, black and cream! I know…. my sewing room can never be featured in “Where Women Create” magazines!
Here are my 2-cents:
I make sure I leave about 1/4y of my storage space for each color. That way, I will have room to add fabrics as time goes on. I know… and after 5 years have gone by, it will be time for me to de-stash again, haha!
And now for the giveaway from destashing my solids and blacks, and we are doing this as we did before.
The giveaway box will consist of the following fabrics, mainly black prints and solids. I will add MORE if there’s room left in a USPS Priority medium box after I pack the fabrics you see. Each of those fabrics is at least 1/4y.
I will announce the winner next Tuesday from the first 10 who comment on this post.
Winner agrees to:
- Send me a check for $36 which covers postage, after being contacted by email.
- Upon receipt of payment, I will mail the fabrics to you
And that’s my 2-cents for this week. Now it’s time to share yours! Have a great rest of your week. See you next time!
