Happy 33rd Birthday to me! I have spent today with my family and friends eating cake and chilling out - although a night out clubbing might help move the baby along!

I noticed I've had over 100,000 blog views so what a great time to celebrate and introduce my newest sponsor, the fabulous Fat Quarter Shop.

If you haven't yet heard of them then you must live under a rock or be new to quilting ;)

I have ordered from them since I began quilting and have lots of envelopes with that little logo on. They have such a huge selection of fabric you can't fail to find something you want and the service is truly brilliant. They are a fantastic team of people and I have always been happy shopping with them. I suspect that's where the vast majority of my stash has come from!

Here's just a little of what is going on at the Fat Quarter Shop...

The Fat Quarter Shop is continually adding New Fat Quarter Bundles, Yardage, Quilt Kits, Quilt Patterns and other items.

Here are some of my favourites:

Safari Soiree by Dan Stiles - just adorable baby/kids fabric

Luxe in Bloom by Sarah Watson - these prints are awesome and some are so versatile, I would use them for a million things

Noteworthy by Sweetwater - very cute prints

Hex on the Beach Quilt Kit - this makes my heart sing (and would be the best birthday present!). Seriously... 100 1" paper hexagons and 1008 precut fabric hexagons in Salt Water by Tula Pink and Free Spirit solids. Life does not get any better than this kit!

Did you know they Youtube??

Our YouTube channel is updated frequently with designer interviews, tutorials and product spotlights!  Spend the day browsing the channel, hearing from your favorite designers and watching fun tutorials!

I REALLY loved watching this interview with Pat Bravo - I could listen to her all day, she's infectious and so rock and romance! There's lots of other brilliant ones too, go and take a look at the Fat Quarter Shop channel.

There's some great tips and tricks too - like the Quilting 101 videos - including how to do Half Square Triangles.

The Fat Quarter Shop is thrilled to present our sixth annual Designer Mystery Block of the Month. This year, we will unveil a spectacular row quilt filled with basket blocks, star blocks, house blocks and flower blocks guaranteed to fill your home with color and style! You will receive 12 different blocks featuring the Avalon collection by Fig Tree Quilts for Moda Fabrics. Each block finishes at 12" and will be an easy to intermediate pieced block (no templates, applique or paper piecing).
The program is from June 2013 to May 2014.

So why not go and buy yourself a present today, visit the Fat Quarter Shop and tell them I said hi!
