Sew Sampler by Fat Quarter Shop

I went out of town last weekend and when I came home I had a lovely little box waiting for me--Fat Quarter Shop's Sew Sampler subscription. Want to take a peek?!
Inside I found all sorts of goodies! Quilt and block patterns, a yummy charm pack of Grow by Me & My Sister for Moda, a small pair of rainbow thread cutters, a little set of tools for the sewing machine, and a little Creative Grids ruler. I'm stoked to try out the Creative Grids ruler--it has grippers to help prevent the ruler from sliding and I have never seen that built into a ruler before.
There are so many new and exciting notions coming out all the time that it's hard to keep up sometimes. Talk about a great way to try out new things! Check out Fat Quarter Shop's Sew Sampler and sign up here.
 Oh and speaking of Fat Quarter Shop, they're getting ready to launch the 2016 Moda Mystery Block of the Month starring my Little Miss Sunshine fabric. Spots are limited, so be sure to get over and sign up for that here.

I'm almost ready to show you new fabric and new patterns! Hang tight for a couple more weeks :)

Frivolous Friday

"Of this be sure, you do not find the happy life, you make it." -Thomas S. Monson 
Moda Frivols no. 9
April is a great month for all you makers out there. Not only is it starting to warm up outside, but things are about to get sunny in your studio as Moda's Frivols no. 9 tin gets ready to ship. This sweet collectible tin-of-the-month stars my Little Miss Sunshine fabric and I'm happy to share a little about it today, and most importantly, give some away!
If you're new to Frivols, here's exactly what you can expect to find inside of this happy little tin: 
  • A quilt pattern for the "Olive" quilt that can be made using the pre-cut roll
  • A Little Miss Sunshine coloring book
  • 1 Maker block card featuring a bonus block pattern and a copy of my favorite quote
Here's a closer look at the "Olive" quilt--named after my own sweet little girl.

And here, of course, is Little Miss Sunshine herself.
***GIVEAWAY NOW CLOSED*** To celebrate Frivols (and all things frivolous), I think it only makes sense to do a giveaway. Or three. Yes, three giveaways sounds better. Let's go ahead and give one set of my Frivols away here on the blog, one set on Facebook, and one set on Instagram. Entries are for U.S. participants only (sorry), and here's how it will work:
  1.  Leave ONE comment here on this blog post. On Monday 4/11/16, I'll pick a winner from the comments for one set of the Frivols. Congrats Kim Courtright!
  2. Follow Lella Boutique on Facebook and leave ONE comment on the giveaway post there. On Monday 4/11/16, I'll pick another winner from the comments there to win one set of the Frivols. Congrats Kasey Schultz-Saindon!
  3. Follow Lella Boutique on Instagram (@lellaboutique) and leave ONE comment on the giveaway post there. On Monday 4/11/16, I'll pick yet another winner from the comments there. Congrats @beckyallen5!

The Diamond Block {Crossroads QAL}

Diamonds are a girl's best friend, without exception! I've just caught up with this month's block for Fat Quarter Shop's Crossroads Quilt-Along and they are so pretty in Joanna Figueroa's Strawberry Fields Revisited fabric! This is such a beautiful quilt and the cause it benefits is even better. If you haven't started yet, it's not too late! Head over to Fat Quarter Shop's blog and get yourself caught up. Happy Wednesday!
