QT Fabrics new line, Brooke, just released. Check out the QAL and our Giveaway!

Giveaway has ended, congrats to Barbara W!
See you all November 8th on the QT Fabrics Blog!

Oh, my blogging friends....
I know that I will never be the blogger I once was or that you hope for, but at least I hope that what I do share with you here is uplifting, fun & always full of quilty-goodness.

My latest design for QT Fabrics features the bright & beautiful new Brooke collection, and starting November 8th, QT will be hosting a Quilt-Along (QAL) on their blog!

Here is our project!  She's 60" square,

with a fun dimensional applique!  (The applique reminds me of Billie Holiday - if you get that reference, we are instant friends.  If you don't, we are still friends.)

I hope you will join in our QAL - a fun-filled 6 weeks to a beautiful quilt!  This quilt is a great skill builder.  Not only will we cover fusible machine applique, but also embellishing, bias edged patchwork, chain piecing and more.  I hope to see you over at "on the QT (a not-so-secret blog)" on November 8th!

Be sure to ask at your LQS for Brooke & get your Brooke kit today (click for store locator)!  If your LQS does not have the fabric, let them know they can still order it for winter delivery!  Maybe they can have a series of classes and help you learn, hands-on, the techniques we cover in the QAL.  Trust me when I tell you that as a quilt shop owner, I love to hear what my customers like to see.  It takes the guess-work out of putting together the activities and fabrics you are interested in!  

If you don't have an LQS (living rural, I totally understand that is the case for so many), not to fear!  We have reopened our Etsy shop & the kits available.

To share our excitement about our latest partnership with QT Fabrics, I am going to give away a kit for the QAL!
