Summer Solstice Fat Quarters for a new project!

For those of you who follow me on Facebook, you may already be aware of the event RJR Fabrics is hosting called It's All In The Bag. This is a fun contest using their new Summer Solstice line of fabric where you make whatever kind of bag you want, then post pictures of it and get all your friends (and other people too) to vote for it as the best bag! Cool fabric, bag making, how could I resist?

So I went on the hunt for fabric and look what I found...

Summer Solstice Fat QuartersThis eight-fat-quarter bundle of Summer Solstice fabric has four from the pink line and four from the teal line and are they ever gorgeous in person! Hawthorne Threads had a few bundles in stock and, as usual, provided awesome service when I ordered from them.

After working up a prototype bag of a new design I have been wanting to make, I chose 4 of these luscious fat quarters and made my official bag for the contest. I won't tell you exactly what it is, but I'll give you a hint...in making this bag, I used up 4 entire fat quarters and, not counting squaring them up, only one cut was made. Ok, one more hint...besides the 4 fat quarters, the only other materials needed to make my bag were thread, fusible fleece which is optional and 5 yards of ribbon.

Stay tuned for pictures of the finished product, and of course my shameless plea for your vote! The pattern for this bag will also be made available so you can make your own. I just know you'll want to!

But wait, there's more!

Tweet Tweet FlannelWhile poking around the Hawthorne Threads site before placing my order, I found this piece of flannel that I just couldn't pass up. It's Tweet Tweet by Hoffman.

Tweet Tweet FlannelIsn't it darling? No plans for it at the moment, but I am sure it will end up being one side of a very cozy baby blanket for some special little baby.

If you like making bags, go check out RJR Fabrics on Facebook, or friend me and click through to the event from my page. There's still time and, besides, it would be fun!

Happy Stitching!
