I wanted to say a big THANK YOU to all that participated and supported my mini auction. Even if you didn’t bid, thank you for reading and spreading the word – it means a lot! I am so happy that this auction was a success, and that it’s going towards such an important cause. You all are the best!
Congratulations to Rebecca from beautiful Hawaii (I’m a tad jealous of the quilt ;)! I will be contacting you shortly via email to arrange shipping and donation details. And I have great news…thanks to my generous in-laws, Rebecca’s donation is being matched by them. And then on top of that, the company I work for will double that total! So the total donation going toward Japan Relief Efforts comes out to $900! Thank you everyone!
On a different note, because of the auction I haven’t blogged in a while so here are a few updates:
I received my latest batch of fabric from Moda! The above collection is called Strawberry Fields by Fig Tree Quilts for Moda. If you liked the Quilt for Japan design, my next Moda Bakeshop tutorial will be on how to make that quilt. It’s a really simple pattern that applies the ‘stack and whack’ method so there’s no measuring involved – just stack, cut and sew!
As it only requires one layer cake pack to make the quilt top, I will also be hosting another fabric giveaway along with the MBS post, so please stay tuned if you’re interested. 🙂
I’ve been spending so much money on batting that I finally bought myself a jumbo roll. I had to have my husband carry it up to my sewing room. This is Warm and White batting – it’s one of my favorites because it quilts well and it doesn’t shrink as much . My other favorite batting is called Soft and Bright. If you have any questions, please leave a comment and I’d be more than happy to answer.
