Well, if it’s Tuesday it must be time to highlight one of our fabulous Finish Along Sponsors again, and this time it’s the Fat Quarter Shop:
As well as having a supply of fabric, patterns and notions that I suspect you could get lost in for days, FQS also has some great resources alongside their shop.
Take, for example, the Block Of The Months – there are several of these running at any one time, and one can pick up the pattern and fabrics for both the front and back if desired. One recent example is the Park Bench Quilt by Julie Of Jaybird Quilts:
They also have quilt clubs, monthly clubs where fabrics in a range of cuts will drop through your door, from the Moda Hexagons to the Christmas Fat Quarters, there’s even a couple of pattern sets.
Each month there’s also a Notion Of The Month, designed to entice you into buying all the little tools to help make your life better, and with 20% off for the entire month. This month’s offering, Appliglue, looks like it actually might be quite handy for glue basting bindings. Hmmmm…
The blog keeps everything ticking along nicely, reminding you of all these features as well as interviewing designers at regular intervals so that you can win some of their products. I don’t think I’ve ever got one of those ‘3 questions’ sets of answers right yet, mind you!
And finally, the most recent innovation has been their YouTube videos which has quite the range of topics, from simple techniques, to more complicated blocks and projects, it should keep you from being bored for a wee while!
