Father’s Day is coming up, and granted, while this may be a little late in the game of making a quilt for dad, using Kit Builder is such an awesome tool to play with. Many people have mentioned that it’s hard to find “guy quilts”, but playing around on Kit Builder
makes it fun to play with skus from existing collections and basics
that you can choose for yourself in the colors the guy in your life
I remember the first time I saw this book – A Quilting Life by Sherri McConnell. I thought it was darling...
Did you know that Quiltmaker Magazine is hosting a Chistmas in July contest? When the lovely editor reached out to us asking if we would like to be a sponsor, we of course jumped on the opportunity!
This contest is really, really awesome. Not only will 10 people get a holiday-themed quilt top (plus backing and binding to finish the quilt) and an additional 2 yards of fabric, they will also receive a $50 gift card to Connecting Threads and other fun prizes.
The contest's theme is really fun: it's a scavenger hunt! On the contest entry form, all you have to do is answer the questions about each of the sponsors and Ta Da! - you're done! In total, each winner will receive $582 worth of prizes! That's amazing!
We're so excited to be a part of the contest and we hope that you will join in on the fun. If you'd like to participate, you can click the green button above, or click here.
As the Art Director for our catalog photo shoots, it’s my job to
research and book locations. We have a very tight budget which makes
for a lot of creativity and craftiness. I choose locations based on the
overall feel and style of a home and try my best to have it connect
with the collections I will be photographing. I've done shoots at
coworkers homes, Bed & Breakfasts, through Airbnb, friends of
friends homes. But there can never be enough options, that is why I’m
reaching out to all of you. If you are in the Portland/Vancouver area
and you feel like your home would be a great location for our photo
shoot, I’d love to hear from you!
so did you expect something different? Of course not! July is ALWAYS
red, white, and blue, and packed with celebration! I have to admit, the July Candle Mat
is one of my favorites sporting the American flag and the
firecracker... BOOM! It’s just pure fun and all the fabrics are from the
Quilter’s Candy collection! The July Candle Mat will make a great July 4th gift! Enjoy!
