A personal blog about quilting, sewing and life as a mother. Lots of free tutorials including beginning quilting tutorials, binding tutorials, and other sewing projects like bags, quilt blocks and nursing covers.
Today I am excited to officially welcome Connecting Threads as a sponsor of Diary of a Quilter. If you’re not familiar with Connecting Threads, let me introduce you.
Connecting Threads is a family-owned company that produces and sells their own lines of fabric. All of their fabrics are sold via their own catalog or through the online store. Because they cut out the middle man they are able to offer high quality quilting cottons at lower price ($5.96 a yard!) and orders over $50 are shipped free.
Some of their recent collections include this nice “fallish” looking collection called Heather’s Garden
This pretty collection of blues is called Indigo Patchwork. I’m a sucker for blues and whites. They always look classic and seem to never look dated.
Finally this collection called Mix It Up full of good blenders including dots, stripes, and plaids.
Not only do they carry fabric, there are also patterns, kits, notions, and thread. It’s a great one-stop shop! The Connecting Threads site is so efficient and easy to navigate. It also includes lots of free stuff like tutorials, patterns, and other downloads. You can follow them on Facebook to keep up with all the latest releases and news.
And today Connecting Threads wants to give away a three fat quarter bundles – one from each collection pictured above – to three different winners! To enter take a quick trip to Connecting Threads and come back and leave a comment telling me a collection that looks appealing to you. Please make sure there is a way I can contact you if you are randomly selected as winner. Giveaway open until Friday, September 27 at midnight, MST. GIVEAWAY CLOSED. Post Edit: This giveaway is only open to participants in the US or Canada.
