Charm Pack Cherry

Hi and welcome to Charm Pack Cherry Monday!

        Today is the day Fat Quarter Shop is introducing their new Charm Pack Cherry quilt.

 They ask me to share my version made with our new April Showers collection.


To make your own, you can get the free Charm Pack Cherry pattern here, and 
 follow along with the lovely Kimberly as she gives you step by step instructions on how to make this fun and easy quilt.

Wouldn't this be such a fun quilt to take on a picnic?

 I had my wonderful quilter, Leann, quilt a paisley raindrop all over design.
Thanks Leanne! It looks beautiful and so fun with the April Showers prints.  

 The Charm Pack Cherry quilt takes 2 print and 2 solid charm packs.
Fat Quarter Shop is having a sale on Charm Packs, so hop on over to get some charm packs and join in the fun!

Happy Stitching,

"C" for Cotton Way

Hello! I'm Bonnie Olaveson, quilter, one half of Bonnie and Camille and designer of Cotton Way patterns. If you are new here, feel free to make yourself at home and look around! 

Welcome to the first day of the Spell it with Fabric Moda blog hop! 

 Each day of the hop you can collect the patterns for three or four letters in the alphabet, learn all about the designers with some questions Lissa has asked us to answer,
AND enter giveaways for some great prizes.
Sounds fun, right?

My block is "C" for Cotton Way, of course, and you can find the pattern for the C block here.

My "C" block has been on my inspiration board for awhile now and I have been trying to decide what to make with it. As many of you know, my daughter Camille has gone mini quilt crazy, so I decided to make a mini quilt for her, because her name starts with "C", and
 so she can hang it on her adorable mini quilt wall.
So now my "C" block has a lovely new home.

 Now for the questions:
My Letter - C
My favorite food - Chocolate, the ultimate Vitamin C

A place I have always wanted to visit - Cayman Islands

Somewhere I have been - Cape Town, Caribbean Cruise, California

Quote or motto I live by - Charity Never Faileth

Someone I know - My daughter Camille, she's pretty amazing!

An object, tool or anything you cannot work without - Cutting Mat

I love quilting because - It is Calming, Comforting and I would be Crazy if I didn't cut up fabric and sew it back together!
And by the way, I have the best job in the world!

For my giveaway, I have a fat quarter bundle of April Showers, thanks to Moda!

To enter, write a comment telling me what you would like to make out of it.
I have a few fun things in the shop made from April Showers if you need some ideas!

Bliss Mix

 I have been busy organizing my fabric and found I had a little bit of Bliss
 fabric that needs to be made into something beautiful.  
(ohhh, It's so hard to part with - but I only have so much room)

This is one of my favorite lines of Bonnie and Camille fabric we have designed.
I don't have much, so if you are interested, hop on over to my shop for a little "Bliss Mix".  

Edit: So sorry, the Bliss Mix bundles are sold out, but I have some other
Bonnie and Camille bundles you might like.

Wishing you all a Happy Valentines Day!
