Shop Update

I have a little etsy shop update this weekend.  I've been assembling a selection of novelty blocks to make a kit for the Retro Christmas Quilt from last year.  This kit has 82 pre-cut squares perfect for this project. Every single fabric is not identical to the ones in last year's quilt, but many are the same and all are cute and create the same look. Purchasing the kit includes the PDF pattern that I will email to you. 

So sorry. The kits are SOLD OUT.

The pattern is also sold separately on etsy. You can also get the pattern instantly here via Pulley.
This kit does not include the fabric for the rest of the quilt.  (To simplify and save on shipping for you all, I decided to just assemble the unique blocks. The rest is easy for you to find on your own.)  The rest of the fabric requirements are 3/8 yard red for cornerstones (I used a micro-dot but a solid would work too), 2 yards solid white, 1/2 yard binding and 3 1/2 yards backing.
I do have a handful of pre-cut backings available in the shop as well. Both are from Holiday Happy by Monica Solario-Snow for Lecien and coordinate with a lot of the fabrics in the kit. They are pre-cut to the perfect size for a 66" x 66" back, but do require sewing one seam.
 
In addition, I listed a Halloween Pennant Kit. This includes 20 different 6" x 5" die-cut pennant triangles. You could use them to make a bunting like I did last year. The fabrics are slightly different this year, but equally awesome and Halloween-ish.

It feels slightly wrong to post about Christmas and Halloween considering it's 90 degrees outside and I'm still loving wearing flip-flops - and in no hurry to stop.  I'm one of those who can't even listen to Christmas music until after Thanksgiving, but I wanted to give folks time to, you know, make the quilt before Johnny Mathis hits the airwaves. 

And now, I'm off to a football game with my husband on this gorgeous, last day of September. (sniff) And then, I am going to watch General Conference on Saturday and Sunday.  It's one of my favorite events of the year. I always come away uplifted and motivated to do and be better. I hope you have a great weekend too!
