Fat Quarter Friday

One of my local fabric stores has a "fat quarter Friday" sale every week.  Buy 3, get one free.  This week I decided I needed to treat myself to a fat quarter Friday.  I needed some more yellow, orange, and blue for my newest project: the Bottled Rainbows quilt along.  I've been intrigued by this quilt ever since Rachel at Stitched in Color first mentioned it, but I didn't think I had the stash for it.  Darn if she isn't persuasive though!  She kept posting links for scraps and Kona bundles, and pretty soon I could no longer resist.  I can't WAIT until my rainbow gets here so that I can start sewing!

While I'm waiting though, I also have been trying out a new craft!  Crewel!  I've wanted to try this for a while, but I knew I wanted to start with a kit since I didn't know what I was doing.  Most of the kits out there, however, are...  a little grandma-ish.  Sorry grandmas of the world, but that's not my style!  Then I found Tako Fibers on Etsy.  Oh my goodness.  I love everything about her kits.  Super easy instructions, modern designs, and even the packaging is so amazingly adorable.  Love, love, love.  
Check this out:

I think I'm going to turn it into a pillow.  Fantastic, no?

Oh, and I'm also finally quilting my Pop Garden quilt.  Yay!


  1. Love the fabric choices, that bottled rainbow quilt looks so cute! Love the design and all of the colors! What fabric store does the Fat Quarter Friday? I'm kind of a fabric junkie right now.

  2. Hehe, I am a fabric junkie too! Pacific Fabrics does Fat Quarter Friday. They have a big stand of them with the signs on it, but there are also random FQs on top of the shelves that have their feature bolts (the ones not in the wall), so be sure to look there too if you go!
