A surprise is revealed–Mini Quilt Mania

I was over the moon when Lindsey from Fort Worth Fabric Studio asked me if I would like to be a part of their April Mini Quilt Mania.  It would mean I would make a mini quilt and do a tute for it on their blog AND choose ANY fabric I liked from their store to make it with……. of course my reply was….”Well…… YES!”  Remember I gave you hints about it back HERE?  It’s been really tough keeping it a surprise.

So I am officially one of the 9 bloggers doing a tute for this….

So, what did I make, you might be thinking……and what fabric did I choose? 

Fabric choice  was a difficult one as I’ve been buying fabrics from Fort Worth Fabric Studio for years…..and I love it ALL! I especially love their Friday Bundle batches and their Pocket Packs….an excellent way to grab an affordable themed pack of fabrics, ready for any project.

I  reeeeeally love the quality of fabrics they have, the price AND the service.  They always package up my goodies in such a pretty way, and they always throw an extra little something in….and it gets to Australia pretty quickly and reasonably, considering it’s coming from the other side of the world.

But because I had a bit of an idea in mind of what I was making, I ended up choosing some of the fabrics from this gorgeous range called Rhapsody Bop by Adornit Fabrics.  It’s really cute with little birdies all over, and the fabric is such good quality, I was sooo happy I chose some of this range…..I really like all of it, especially the Rhapsody Bop Chatter…..(we all know how much I love words).  You’ll understand why I chose it when you see my project.

You are tweet (861x1024)

Called, “You Are Tweet”, I designed a sweet little 18 1/2 x 16 1/2 inch mini quilt with a touch of linen, some trademark stitchery (of course), a little bit of ric rac , some easy needleturn and some fussy cutting but nothing you wouldn’t be able to master quite easily. 

If you head on over to the FWFS blog now, you’ll be able to see the tutorial and if you download the PrintFriendly button, you can even download the PDF of the tutorial easily and for FREE!

Don’t forget to check out what the other 7 bloggers have designed for the Mini Quilt Mania…..

Here is the schedule:

you’ll find all the tutorials if you scroll back through FWFS’s blog posts in April….and you can read even more about the Mini Quilt Mania HERE .

Hope you have lots of fun with it. Let me know what you think?
