A few months ago Megan from The Fat Quarter Shop approached me and asked if I would be interested in doing a bundle for the Blogger’s Choice Fat Quarter Bundle Club. Of course I said yes! I love the blogger bundles!
For those who aren’t familiar, The Fat Quarter Shop is an online retailer based in Austin, Texas. Founded in 2003 by Kimberly Jolly and joined shortly thereafter by her husband Kevin, The Fat Quarter Shop started out of her home on evening and weekends. Today they carry thousands of fabrics from the best manufacturers. Oodles and oodles! More than you could conceivably roll around in in a day! From solids to stripes, modern to traditional, you can find it at the Fat Quarter Shop. Not only that, they carry notions and exclusive Kits and Block of the Months, fabric clubs and patterns. The Blogger’s Choice bundles are a handpicked collection of coordinating fat quarters. You get 12 prints and three coordinating solid-that’s 15 fat quarters! Each month a new blogger is featured, and I was pleased to be given September. There were so many new fabrics to choose from, I had a hard time deciding!
Ultimately I went with the fun bright colors that I love, with a few neutrals thrown in for good measure. The colors are bright and summery, with the slightest hint- just a whisper, really-of winter to come. Forme, the month of September has always been bittersweet. Growing up, the first day back to school there would always be frost. It would go from summer to almost winter in a blink, and as kids we would try everything to keep the memory of summer alive as the leaves quickly turned. September was also the start of a new school year, and my favorite part of back to school was shopping for school supplies. Paper, pencil crayons, paints, markers, pretty colored binders that would just get doodled on. One year I even painted my binders with manga and anime characters. Art was the highlight of high school for me. These were the memories and feelings that were recreated for me when I picked my bundle, and I love it! I can’t wait to get started on a quilt that will help keep summer alive at my house through the rainy season, a colorful lap version of my Forest Paths Quilt!
