Fluffy Sheep Quilting {The Shop} News from Fluffy Sheep Quilting

The shop was a-buzz last week with new fabric arriving, so I have not been sewing lately.  Seeing as we are all fabric enthusiasts, though, I thought I would show you what pretties have joined our fabric family. I can not stop petting them!

First up, Vintage Happy.

What's not to like in this fabric line?  There are flowers, little retro geometric prints, hangers, dress patterns, irons and leaves.  The colors are just delicious ranging from a tangerine orange to cherry red, from aqua to golden rod yellow.  Each of the prints below is available from the bolt in ...

Good news, everyone!  Fluffy Sheep Quilting will now be stocking Love Patchwork & Quilting magazine!  I am so excited I can hardly contain myself....which is why I'm telling all of you!

FairyFace Designs Blogger Bundle! from Fluffy Sheep Quilting

As you may have already guessed from IG, the super talented Sarah, who blogs at FairyFace Designs, created a beautiful fat quarter bundle for Fluffy Sheep Quilting this month!  I can't wait to tell you all about it.


Sarah was the first blogger I followed in the modern quilting world.  She was (and still is) a total quilting rock star in my mind.  I so very clearly remember the day I emailed her (I was so nervous!) to tell her I started a blog and ask her the best way to pick up a few followers.  Her advice was ...

Bee Blessed: March Blocks from Fluffy Sheep Quilting

Do you have deja vu?  Checking your calendar to see that it is indeed March and not February?  Don't you worry!  It's me - it's not you.  


I so loved making last month's Bee Blessed blocks that Judith was nice enough to let me make more little hearts for her.  The only deal was that they could not be pink or red.  Easy peasy.


I went with the two biggest pieces of fabric in my scrap bin, grabbing a green Boho print (my stinky night time photos of that block looked horrific!) and then a pretty turquoise ...

Flutter.Kat Blogger Bundle!!! from Fluffy Sheep Quilting


I am so pleased to show you March's blogger bundle, created by Kat of Diary of a Flutter.Kat!  Kat and I have been bloggy friends for many years and even met once in person, which is very cool seeing as she lives on the other side of the world (New Zealand) from me (Ireland).  Kat was also an integral part of the creation of Fluffy Sheep Quilting {the shop}.  She not only was a beta tester of the shop website, but created the FSQ logo.  Who doesn't love that little sheep of hers?

For quite some time now I have wanted to create a Fluffy Sheep Quilting charm pack.  My problem has been choosing my favorite 28 prints to cut!  But then inspiration stuck!  Why don't you pick your favorite 28 prints and I'll make a pack that's unique you - the Pick-A-Pack Crew.  That way each of you can have a little bit of the fabric goodness available without committing to buying full FQs of those prints you like.  Super!

It's Worth the Effort from Fluffy Sheep Quilting

I love foundation paper piecing.  I know it drives some of you mental, but for me there is nothing better.  It gives me an excuse to pull out my crayons.  The template tells you where to stitch, so you don't have to pay attention to that quarter inch seam, AND you get the pointiest of points in your final block.  Win win win.

Over the weekend I pulled out my trusty star templates and started stitching.  Much to my surprise they came together WAY easier than I thought they would.  Only once did I really really mess it up ...

Yet another UFO finished! And it looks fantastic!

Luckily for me, there are only 2 more UFOs! Yeah! One by one they are finishing and it really feels great...I really do not have the strength to start a new quilt (except for orders, of course).

You can learn more about this one in a previous posts here. And yes! it is a very old ufo!

I have listed this one to my Etsy shop: Checkers quilt

I also managed to make a cool pillow cover for our super brand new sofa. I used those "deers in glasses" from Echino ...

roadtrip from Ellyn's Place

Yesterday, I went with my pals, Joellen and Marie, to a quilt show in Jefferson, TX. The drive was about 3 hours from Dallas, but it went by fast with these two. Lots of laughing and storytelling. We forgot to get a picture of the three of us until we were almost home and it was very dark, but here are Joellen and I taking a selfie at lunchtime...
 The quilt show was wonderful! There were so many beautiful quilts to look at and the few vendors that were there were all very good. I bought more than I probably ...

this and that... from Ellyn's Place

My friend Diann and I went to Hobby Lobby looking for Valentine fabric and I came home with this....

An adorable little cabinet with four drawers to hold treasures. I just fell in love with it, and it was 50% off YAY! so it followed me home. I have no idea what I will keep in those little drawers? still thinking about that. Oh, by the way, the Valentine fabric at Hobby Lobby was, shall we say, unattractive? We didn't buy any. Luckily, on my recent trip to Phoenix Mom and I spent some time at Arizona Quilts and ...
