Join the Party – Introducing our Witch’s Night Out Quilt Kit!

We are sew excited to introduce our Witch’s Night Out Quilt Kit! This whimsical quilt tips a pointy black hat to some of the hallmarks of Halloween: black cats on broomsticks, flying bats, witchy hats, cauldrons and pumpkin patches.

Our kit includes the Witch’s Night Out Book by It’s Sew Emma and the All Hallow’s Eve fabric for the 57.5″ x 64.5″ quilt top and binding. We also include a FQS exclusive spooktacular tote bag. A coordinating backing set is available separately.

This new kit is from It’s Sew Emma’s Witch’s Night Out Book, and it’s all fun, no fright! In additional to the main quilt, the book also includes a bonus Pumpkin Patch Tablerunner that will enchant you.

The Witch’s Night Out quilt features Fig Tree Quilt’s All Hallow’s Eve fabric collection for Moda Fabrics. The colors and prints in this collection are the right blend of vintage, romance and classic Halloween. The eclectic mix of oranges, grays and blacks are a perfect complement to the black cat, cauldrons and pumpkins in the Witch’s Night Out quilt.

Austin Bluebird Sampler Quilt Kit

Hello everyone! It’s Polly Minick and Laurie Simpson of Minick and Simpson here on the Jolly Jabber. Today, we wanted to share with you the story behind our Austin Bluebird Sampler, which Fat Quarter Shop is offering as a full quilt kit. It has truly been years in the making! 

Our inspiration came about from a quilt we purchased from a textile dealer. The only thing we knew about the quilt was that it came from Texas. One of the blocks caught our eyes, which was the applique block that is on the bottom left of our Austin Bluebird Sampler quilt, with the birds on a branch surrounded by rosebuds. But just doing one block was not the best way to show off its charm. We then recreated that block and designed more applique blocks with the same bluebirds. We have longed admired sampler quilts from the 19th century where all of the blocks are pieced together in a hodge-podge sort of way. When we were in search of a name for our quilt, we knew that it needed something to do with Texas, so the Austin Bluebird Sampler came about. 

We love almost everything about this quilt. The colors are both modern and traditional at the same time. We really love that it’s quirky and most of all that it was inspired from a quilt made a very long time ago. 

Our Austin Bluebird quilt uses a mix of prints from our previous collections from Moda Fabrics, which are Lexington blues and some reds from Grant Park and Midwinter Reds. We also used our favorite three Bella Solids to add to the antique look of the quilt. We were so happy to find out that Moda Fabrics decided to reprint our previous collections just for this quilt, and we created a special eight-piece Austin Bluebird collection. 

We hope that you will love this quilt as much as we do. Our quilt kit ships this December, so don’t forget to reserve your quilt kit and backing set today at Fat Quarter Shop! Thank you so much and happy quilting everyone!
