“Thankful” fabric and patterns are now shipping! (Info on where to find them and a giveaway!)

Posted on

NOTE: The winner of this giveaway (chosen by random number) is Brenda Ackerman.  Congratulations, Brenda! Please send me your snail mail address. 

We’ll have a giveaway for Christmas Magic soon!

Hi everyone!

I have some exciting news to share! My Thankful patterns and fabrics from Contempo of Benartex are both now shipping!  Perhaps you remember seeing sneak peeks of this line from Fall Quilt Market?

The “Thankful” portion of my Quilt Market booth.

 

Some prints from “Thankful”

 

The panel that goes with “Thankful”. This is one of my favorite panels I’ve designed.

There are two patterns that I designed specifically for this line.  The first is a pieced pattern called “Autumn Leaves” – it is quick and really fun to piece.

The second is called “Plenty” and includes instructions to make a pillow, a bed runner, and a table runner.  It includes a download for SVG files of course.

 

You can order these patterns from your local shop or, if you aren’t lucky enough to have a local shop, from my website.

There is also a free pattern for a lap quilt and pillow using the Thankful panel on the downloads page of my website.

I don’t stock fabric, but I asked Benartex to put together a list of shops that ordered the fabrics.  (This is not a complete list, as if shops buy from distributors I don’t have that information.  If you are one of those shops or you just have Thankful and are not listed for any reason I am happy to add you to this list if you contact me!)
