Cotton Way: Marmalade I can't believe it's finally here, our new fabric collection Marmalade just arrived! So fresh and yummy, I want to use every single piece, which one do I cut into first? No time to waste, better get stitching, Market is just a few weeks away and there is soooo much to do! Watch for Vintage Modern in your local quilt shops in May and Marmalade in October! It is definitely a Marmalade Day, Bonnie Fat Quarter Tuesday – Weekly Giveaway The first Fat Quarter set in this week’s giveaway is a new Color Stack called Cappuccino. It pulls in mod designs from the Alexander Henry Fashionista group and pairs them up with fun stripes, dots and medallions from Valori Wells, Joel Dewberry, Annette Tatum and Denyse Schmidt. Lots of yummy, creamy tan, pink, grey, and orange. I feel like I should be wearing a beret and sewing this quilt up in a hip coffee bar. Patricia Bravo, fabric designer and owner of Art Gallery Fabrics, makes her debut appearance at Pink Chalk Fabrics. Last Week’s Fat Quarter Set Winners: Annie (blog comments) and Kim (newsletter subscriber) I’ve sent you each a private e-mail. How Fat Quarter Tuesday works: You can sign up for the Pink Chalk Fabrics Newsletter here. I discovered after last week’s inaugural post that drawing a winner from customers who shopped in the store would be considered a lottery because it requires a purchase to be eligible. pink chalk fabrics ~*~ new arrivals ~*~ free patterns ~*~ on sale

Simplify Hello again! Well, I finished up my new set of Hello Darling patterns a few weeks ago, and although you have probably seen them on Instagram, Facebook, or in my shop, I still wanted to introduce them here. Every pattern I've ever designed has been introduced here, so I should keep that up, don't you think? I have 6 new patterns this time around, 4 quilts and 2 mini quilts. First up is Lollies! Lollies is a layer cake pattern, and is a really fun and easy quilt to piece. When I made this quilt it looked like little candies to me, so Lollies it is. Next up is Vintage Tulips. I have always loved flower quilts and have made many, but when I saw a vintage quilt a few months ago with the most darling tulips, I decided I had to make one of my own. Abby quilted this one too in one of my favorite long arm loop patterns. So after I finished all of the new quilts I had everyone vote on Instagram which ones should be made into mini patterns. Piccadilly Circus It was meant to be. *I need a nap. ;-)

Mola coser: patchwork Ahora que ya he hecho entrega a Joana de su regalito de bienvenida, el resto del mundo mundial puede verlo también. Os había enseñado un detalle del acolchado aquí (Iris: el dibujo del acolchado está dibujado por la parte del top con rotulador del que se borra con agua; la foto de la otra entrada es de la parte trasera, en la que solo se ven las puntadas), pero aquí tenéis algunas fotos del conjunto. Como siempre, he utilizado un montón de telas de colores de diferentes procedencias (Etsy, tiendas de aquí y de allá...), y para la parte trasera y el "binding" (la franja roja del cierre alrededor), telas que compré en la Donna que hay cerca de Plaza Urquinaona, que sigue siendo uno de los sitios más baratos de BCN para telas de patch, y con bastante variedad. A la mamá Evitta y al papá Gerard les ha gustado mucho.
