2016 Sewing Month Celebration: Giveaway #4

Welcome back to our celebration of Sewing Month 2016!
We hope you've been having fun with our weekly inspiration and giveaways. There are so many video gems in our FQS vault (also known as our YouTube Channel) that we're sharing some more inspirational how-to's based on a theme. This week?  Applique! We've also got a fantastic giveaway, and two people will each win a prize package valued at over $80, which includes the thread-y goodness show below - yum!
We know, we know - some quilters consider applique the "A word". Here at Fat Quarter Shop we think applique gets a bad rap, so we've gathered some FQS videos that will help you develop new applique skills or further develop those you may already have.  Take a peek!

See, that wasn't so bad! Applique - by machine or by hand - can be painless and fun, and results in gorgeous quilts and other stitch-y projects!


This week we're giving away two Awesome Applique Prize Packs! Each lucky winner will receive a Fat Quarter Shop Tin Set, ten spools of Aurifil 80 wt Applique Thread, a package of 16 Straw Needles, Poke-A-Dots Sticky Thimbles, and one Charm Pack of Bella Solids containing assorted colors. Each Prize Pack (shown in the tray above) is valued at over $80! 

To enter: Leave a comment on this blog post sharing whether you currently use applique in your quilting and sewing, or if you have yet to take on this sewing technique. Giveaway ends on 9/26/16 at 8 AM CST. The two winners will be chosen at random and announced in an update on this post by 9/28/16, and will be emailed about their prizes. Good luck and Happy Quilting!

Cozy Christmas Sew Along - Recap #1!

Hello, Quilting Friends!  Are you sewing along with Lori Holt's Cozy Christmas Sew Along? We are, and so far we've stitched up five of the cutest blocks that you ever did see. Seriously!  We're sharing our first month's blocks today, and hope that you'll start sewing along if you haven't already.  This sew along will wrap up in November, which will give you time to quilt and bind this beauty before Christmas!

No need to pick out fabrics if you like the quilt the fabulous Lori has designed - we have a Cozy Christmas Quilt Kit, a coordinating Backing Set, and all the other goodies you'll need to make your quilt. You can read all about this quilt-tastic sew along event HERE, in our sew along introduction post.

We won't keep you waiting any longer: here are our first blocks in the Cozy Christmas Quilt!

Block #1 - Bell


Block #2 - Cottage

Block #3 - Tree

Block #4 - Wreath

Block # 5- Snowman
We'd love to see your blocks on Instagram, so please use #cozychristmassewalong when sharing your photos! Oh, and don't forget to pre-order your copy of Lori's Scrappy Project Planner - it will be available to ship soon!

Trend(ing) New Tins from Moda Fabrics!

We have always loved tins, and now they're getting overhauled for today's quilters!  Moda Fabrics has released an awesome assortment of spunky new tins in two styles.  All the tins are available individually or in two sets.  The first set, "Blocks" is bright, graphic and cool.
The "Quotes" set is full of fun, artfully drawn quilty quotes including: "Quilter's Gonna Quilt", "Eat, Sleep and Quilt", "Indulge in Quilty Pleasures", and "Make Things Beautiful."  My personal favorite is "Well-behaved Quilters Rarely Make History"!  Ain't it the truth! :)

Grab some for yourself to store pins, needles, jewelry, maybe even a few Mini Charms!  They also dress up little gifts well for your quilt-minded friends.  Which set will you choose?
