Free Fabric Friday

on October 2 | in Contests & Giveaways, Products | by | with 152 Comments

We’re very pleased to announce that we’ve received the new Amy Butler Quilting Solids.  These are beautiful, soft fabrics that coordinate with Midwest Modern and Daisy Chain (and Midwest Modern II, which will be out in the Spring.)  We have most of the colors in the shop, with  images from the manufacturer that fairly accurately represent the actual colors of the fabric.  If, however, you need help matching a solid to an Amy Butler print (or any print we carry), just email Rebecca and Lauren at  They’re happy to help you select a color that looks great with the fabric you are considering.  Check out these fabulous projects, plus more inspiration images on the Amy Butler Design site.

I’d like to thank all our Sewing for the Home contributors. It was a fabulous month! This week we’ll give away 4 packs of five Quilting Solids fat quarters. To put your name in the hat, simply comment in one of our Sewing for the Home posts.
