Welcome to if you're shopping.... On Fridays - late again, it's Saturday morning now - I share news from my sponsors, in case you want to do a little shopping, or even window shopping, this weekend.
Happy 7th Anniversary to Mad about Patchwork! In celebration, you can have 20% off all Cotton + Steel until April 15th with promo code CS20.
Oakshott Fabrics has released another of their wonderful free pattern booklets! This one uses 10" squares of Colourshott fabrics. These patterns are all by talented bloggers, in a project coordinated by my friend Lynne from Lily's Quilts.
Beautiful new fabrics continue to arrive at Fabric Spark!.
Fluffy Sheep Quilting has beautiful fabrics. I have used this favourite of mine, Paint Swatches from Paint by Carrie Bloomston, on more than one quilt backs and I am thinking it is time to order more.
Sew Me a Song is spring cleaning and besides her sales, Becca keeps making beautiful bundles. This one especially caught my eye.
Sew Sisters Quilt Shop is featuring a lovely new kit - Glimmer Shimmer.
Over at the Fat Quarter Shop this new Sew Emma Hibiscus pattern caught my eye - a sort of brilliant monster pinwheel. Imagine the pinwheels in bright saturated colours and the background in low volume - this would be a great scrap project for me maybe.
We are having fantastic weather and I am going to sew today with the windows open wide. I am also off to buy new runners as mine were soaked in an Atlantic Ocean wave that came up to my knees last week. I was not that fussed, it was time to truly step into the Atlantic, I swim in the Pacific often. I do need new runners, as I am going to walk and exercise a lot more, starting this week.
Oh, and a little later I will announce the winner from my Make It, Take It give away too.
