Fabric Of The Month Series

Have you seen the Designer Select Fat Quarter Club at the Fat Quarter Shop?
All of our favorite designers are making a fat quarter set out of 12 of their favorite fabrics and 3 solids. It's a great way to make sure you get these new lines when they first come out.

That's what this new series is all about. Each month I will select a Designer Select FQ Kit and will make something from it. I'll share tutorial on different techniques used in the selected project, as well as have guest bloggers show what they are doing with their fabric from the designer of the month. I invite you to quilt-along with the project of the month or just share what you have made with that fabric.

Now for the fun news...there will be prizes! I can't spill the beans yet, but they will be announced on Monday, all I can say is that you will absolutely love love love them!

Here's the first fat quarter kit...                                 and the first pattern...

Don't you think this will be a gorgeous quilt? I have wanted to do this pattern for a long time and I think this is the perfect fabric for it. I ordered 2 yards of white for the background and 2 yards of the light jade solid for the border. With how fast the Fat Quarter Shop ships orders there's plenty of time to order your fabric and pattern too.

And if you are interested in being a guest blogger this month please let me know, I'd love to have you along!

So what do you think? Are you in?
