Sunday Stash Share: Sailing

Sunday, April 12, 2015

I broke down and splurged on a fat eighth bundle of Bonnie & Camille's "Daysail" line.

To be honest, I wasn't totally in love with all of the prints in the line, but the completionist in me demanded I buy the line in its' entirety. And I love Bonnie & Camille.

I've started to collect more fat eighth bundles vs. the fat quarter bundles I was inclined to purchase in the past. I would prefer a FQ bundle, but let's face it, they are freakin' expensive. So expensive that I'm basically priced out of buying any of the lines that I love.

Enter the fat eighth bundle.

Yes, you don't get as much fabric to play with. Yes, you have to think a little more outside the box with respect to using it in blocks and patterns, but it can be done. I think that the 9" width you get is enough to work with/around, whilst still being able to use an entire line of fabrics.

To be honest I wish more companies would do a pre-pack fat eighth bundle so that I could afford to use their fabric lines; charm packs and jelly rolls are not the easiest for me to work with (although I do try...).

And fat eighth bundles look good on the shelf. Heheh.

Flash Sale Alert

Saturday, April 11, 2015

Hi all!

Quick "Sharing the Coupon Love" Flash Sale alert!

Craftsy is having a flash sale on all of their online classes.
Craftsy

If you've never heard of Craftsy, or you've been a bit hesitant to purchase one of their online classes, you are missing out! I love that I can have access to the classes at any time, day or night, with no expiry date. And I can watch classes when I have time, press pause on that lesson, and when I come back to the video it brings me right to where I left off.

The instructors are great and are there to answer any of your questions (just leave your question in the comment box beside the video and they'll get back to you!).

If you're hesitant, try one of their free classes, see how they work.

Craftsy isn't just for quilting - they have knitting, cake making/decorating/cooking, jewelry, home and garden classes and more!

I've taken several of their quilting classes given by well known modern quilters and have loved it.

Happy learning everyone!
