An Exciting Announcment...QAL with traceyjay

Hi Everyone,

Here is a little something that has been in the works for the last month or two. One of my sweet friends (who you might know from Moda Bake Shop fame) has designed this super sweet quilt called Treasure Boxes.... wait let me start at the beginning... I have been a fan of Tracey's for a few years now and when she decided to start an Etsy shop to benefit a Mission in Haiti called Heartline (if you have been around a while here you have heard me talk about it) she and I partnered up. We had a little hiccup (happily) when she got pregnant with her daughter and had to let this go for a little while but we are getting it back on track. As you know I support Heartline every month with profits from the shop and that is what made me decide to start the shop in the first place.... fast forward to a month or so ago when Tracey asked if I would like to partner with her to do a Quilt Along to benefit charity... well, of course! So was born the Treasure Boxes Quilt Along:

Here is a picture of one of the quilts she has made with this pattern:

And for this quilt along she will be making it from Out to Sea if you decide to join the Quilt Along there is a special deal for the fabrics to make it. I will let you read about it over here on Tracey's blog

I hope you decide to join us!

In other news Sew Stitchy from Aneela Hoey is in the shop (I will get IRL pictures this afternoon) this is my favorite print (I think) so far:


I also bought all of the Bella Solids that match to make it easy for you to dream up your perfect quilt with this.

I have all of the Riley Blake Small Chevrons in and most of the Medium ... for some reason they didn't send me the red and white... Argh.  And Avignon should be in soon as well.

Have an awesome Wednesday!

Talk soon...

  9. Cool pattern, Julie. I will see if I can find the time! Do we have to do it in that fabric, or can I use stash? I need to go read her blog post.

    Is Avignon Amanda's fabric?
