I had the wonderful opportunity of working with a company called Cotton Cuts. As a member you receive monthly a variety of fabrics chosen specifically for you. You answer a few questions and they surprise you with a custom created bundle. You receive either 12 fat quarters or 20 fat eighths, your choice. You can change your fabric preferences at any time. You get to choose a pattern from their designer of the month and you also get two collectible block of the month pattern cards. Each box has something extra as a thank you. Doesn't this sound wonderful? It is!
In addition, Cotton Cuts is on a mission to create jobs and have partnered with a local workshop that provides dignified employment opportunities to the intellectually challenged and to those with other disabilities.
I created a quilt with eight of the fabrics they sent me. I paired it with "Weewander", by Sarahjane Studios, in "With the Birds". What I love about these fabrics is that some of them are ones I would not have chosen on my own but, after receiving them, absolutely love. This allows me to play with fabric and look at texture and pattern in a different way. It was so fun! I used the "Baby Blocks" pattern from the book, "Sweet Celebrations" compiled by Lissa Alexander. The quilt measures 37.5 x 44.5. It is quilted with soft wavy lines in pink on the front and white on the back.
Because Cotton Cuts was kind enough to send me a box to try, I am going to pay it forward and give this quilt to one of you! I am having a giveaway on Instagram (IG name is sewnwithgrace) and all you need to do to enter is visit me there and leave a comment on the post. I will choose a winner by random number generator on Wednesday, December 7.
