Cotton Cuts

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.
