NEW book: Tablerunner Bliss by Sherri Falls

April was exciting enough when we got to spill the beans about Spelling Bee, but we’re bringing another set of beautiful designs to the table this May with Tablerunner Bliss by Sherri Falls of This & That Pattern Co.!
Tablerunners are an easy way to refresh your decor and keep your home looking stylish, but more than that, they are invitations for you to sit down at the table with family and friends.  Treat each one of these occasions with a welcoming tablerunner, whether it’s a holiday feast or a coffee with an old pal!
There are 20 tablerunners packed into this book, and each one will keep you ooh-ing and aah-into as you sew through it.  Sherri’s lovely aesthetic makes each one fresh and unique (of course we would expect no less from her!).  These tablerunners are sewn up in every fabric style, from soft pastels to rich reproductions and cool modern prints, as inspirational starting points.
These are just a few of the tablerunners in the book – be sure to tell us which one catches your eye!

Tablerunner Bliss comes out in August 2017, but you can pre-order your copy now at a sweet 10% discount, so don’t “table” this for later!

If you’d like to sew some of these tablerunners just as they are shown in the book, you’ll love our Tablerunner Bliss Tablerunner Club! For six months, starting in September 2017, club members will receive the fabric to make six of the tablerunner tops pictured in the book! Backing sets can also be purchased!

Quilt Petite Blog Hop with Sedef Imer

We’ve jumped on the blog hop train showcasing Sedef Imer’s first book, Quilt Petite!
The book features so many fun, small projects to decorate your house with! Not only mini quilts, but also mug rugs, pot holders, and more!

Along with featuring such precious little projects, the book is also a learning tool to tackle some of the tricks of the sewing trade! The guide and projects make this book perfect for beginners and experienced sewers alike.

At Fat Quarter Shop, we took to the drawing boards when we were asked to join Sedef’s fun blog hop! We decided on the “Hearts” mini quilt up, and used the Vintage Daydream collection by Designs by Dani for Riley Blake!

We love how the floral prints mixed with the warm, heart-shaped pattern! The touch of golden yellow was just what we needed to make the hearts really pop!
