by Julie Hirt

Welcome to week five.  Only one more week of giveaways after this!


Aurifil is awesome and has kindly supplied yet another sampler for the giveaway!  I’ve gone on and on about how much I love this stuff, so I’ll leave it at that this week.  If you haven’t tried Aurifil – do it!

Caitlin from I Don’t Do Dishes has generously provided super fabrics for the giveaway.  Four “Pica” fat quarters from the Erin McMorris line, Astrid.  Colors are black, aquamarine, chartreuse and poppy.

I don’t know about you, but I am a huge Tula Pink fan!   Totally pumped for the Acacia line.



If you Pre-Order  the Acacia Fat Quarter bundle or Quilt Kit before Monday you get FREE SHIPPING!

$66 for 25 Fat Quarters… plus free shipping?  Yes, please!     There’s only a few pre-orders left, so hurry!



Last week my Quilt App was released!  You can find more information here.  Great tool to keep track of all of your projects, swaps and ideas. If you have an APPLE device (iPhone, iPad, iPod), I’ll send you a free copy!   It’s not yet available for Android devices.

Quilting App + Winner & Linky

by Julie Hirt

So excited to announce…

Quilt Bee App


I’ve been working on this for a few months and it’s finally released!   For now it’s only available on Apple Devices like the iPhone, iPad and iPod.

It really is just a simple organizer to keep track of things like:


  • sewing projects
  • quilting clubs
  • quilting bees
  • fabrics
  • works in progress
  • want-to-make ideas


Quilt Bee App
Just add a “New Bee” for each project you’d like to track.

It’s really perfect for holiday sewing organization.  Say you’d like to make quilted pouches for 4 different people. Add the project and your recipients within. Take pictures of the fabrics you’d like to use for each person so you can easily remember who gets what.

When you join a new Quilting Bee or Swap add it to the list.  Include individual recipients along with notes, websites, patterns and an image for each person.

Recipients names change color depending on the status.  You know you’re done when everyone is “green”.  Perhaps green with envy because of your mad sewing skills?

It was pretty exciting for me to see my little bee icon!

Go get your very own cute little icon and organize those brilliant sewing ideas and projects!




The screenshots were taken from my phone and I’ve already added a lot more stuff.  Thanks Pinterest for giving me too many ideas. :\



The winner of Sunday Funday Giveaway week 4 is…  Anna Streight!  

Congrats!  I’ll be sending you an email shortly :)

Sunday Funday Giveaway #3

by Julie Hirt

It’s that time again!   Welcome to Sunday Funday giveaway week 3.

Check out those beautiful shot cottons by Kaffe Fassett.  Elizabeth at Cucire was kind enough provide a yard of each in Viridian and Persimmon.

The rich woven colors are perfect for holiday sewing or a quilting project.  Cucire has a gorgeous selection of shot cottons.

If you hurry you can catch her August special: Amy Butler’s Belle fabrics at $8 per yard.   Woot, woot!


The winner also receives a thread sampler from the ever wonderful Aurifil.  Try out 5 thread weights in 5 different colors.

If you’ve never sewn with Aurifil, you are missing out. Missing out on having a lint-free machine!

First time?  I’d start with a large spool of white in 50wt and use it for regular piecing and sewing.  You’ll immediately notice your bobbin goes much further, the thread has a nice feel and your lint build up is minimal.

Cucire carries Aurifil.  Buy a spool and give it a spin! You won’t regret it.

To celebrate (because it makes me giddy to see something of mine posted there), you can win supplies to make your own pouch!


Zipit Zippers has generously donated a $25 credit to their Etsy shop.  Let me tell you, that will buy a LOT of zippers.

They have a huge selection and their prices cannot be beat.  Seriously.  Plus, you can always save 15% with coupon: 627handworks.


Fresh Modern Fabric has donated a lovely Mini Charm from the Savonnerie collection. The fabric line is so pretty and would make a really colorful pouch.

Alice  has a great selection of pre-cuts available.  Although, right now I’m drooling over this Sweet Life Fat Quarter bundle.
