Let’s end July with a celebration! Whether you’re sweltering through the dog days of summer in the Northern hemisphere or suffering through the heart of winter in the Southern hemisphere, a bit of fabric is always the right choice for getting the inspiration flowing. Thanks to Free Spirit’s generosity and as part of the One Fabric Nation program, I have two fat quarter bundles of Amy Butler’s Bright Heart collection to giveaway. Sweet!!!As you can see on that label, there are twenty-eight fat quarters per bundle. Twenty-eight pieces of gorgeous fun and many, many happy hours of sewing and crafting. Before we get to the details of the sweepstakes aka giveaway, let me share a bit of Bright Heart inspiration.I’m nearly done hand quilting this wall hanging with pearl cotton and big stitch quilting. I’ve managed to put together a free pdf so you can make one of your own. Click here or visit the Freebies section. These are raw edge applique designs so it goes together quickly. I’m contemplating some additional embellishments on those pots. Beading would look great, but so would some decorative machine stitches. I first fell in love with chocolate pots in Paris. We were there for three short days in 2001. Fourteen years on, and I can still vividly remember the thrill of the city and the fantastic window displays of the chocolaterie across the street from the hotel. Click here to visit my Chocolate Pot Pinterest board to see some of the dazzling pots that inspired the applique shapes.So, without further delay, here are the details:
