Fat Quarter Bundle Giveaway and Tutorial!

Pin It
Some time ago I showed you a sneak peek at this neat quilt I was working on. This collection is called Block Party and was designed by Ro Gregg for Fabri-Quilt. My quilt is called Flower Garden and is all done! After I finished writing the tutorial I had some fabric left over and yesterday I decided to make a little travel tote bag.
This really turned out cute and what a beautiful fabric!

You can find the tutorial for my Flower Garden quilt at Inspired by Fabric - a blog by Fabri-Quilt.

Fabri-Quilt is sponsoring a giveaway of a Fat Quarter Bundle of Block Party and additional yardage of the flower panels! One person will be able to make their own Flower Garden quilt!

Free Coffee Mug

Pin It I drink lots of coffee and thought it would be fun to have a personalized cup. 
Tiny Prints is a new affiliate of mine and I was sent a promotion to share with all of you.

From now through 11:59pm PT September 23, 2014 you can get one free mug!
 Be sure to use the Promo Code: MUGSEP14 

I just took advantage of the Tiny Prints free mug offer and ordered a new cup. The free cup is 11 oz and you can design your own or personalize one of theirs. I decided to design my own and hopefully it will turn out right. I made a box in Photoshop that was 8.25 inches by 3.5 inches and then filled it in with quilting words. Tiny Prints shows you what your cup will look like and I grabbed all 3 photos so you could see it.

If you don't want to do that just choose a design you like, this one is called Bursting Channel which is a cute chevron design. In the upper right hand corner is a button called PERSONALIZE and this is where you can type in your name.
