Lite Steam A Seam 2 Is Back In Stock!

Lite Steam A Seam 2 Is Back In Stock!!!

The long awaited return of Lite Steam A Seam 2 is back on shelves! Lite Steam A Seam 2 is a lightweight 2 sided fusible product that is favored by many. With paper on both sides, you can prepare your image ahead of time and use when you’re ready. One side is pre-marked with a 1” x 1” grid for maintaining proportion and staying straight.

When you’re ready to put your applique in place, removing the paper exposes a temporary light adhesive to allow repositioning before fusing permanently into place. Lite Steam A Seam 2 won’t add bulk or stiffness to your project.

We are stocking Lite Steam A Seam 2 in the 24” size to accommodate all your projects – large and small. This product is sold by the HALF Yard. A quantity of 1 in your cart, equals 18” x 24”.

Ombre – It’s My Birthday!!!

Ombre!  It sounds like a word of celebration!  As a noun, according to the Meriam Webster dictionary, ombre is an old three-handed card game popular in Europe especially in the 17th and 18th centuries.  As an adjective, however, ombre is defined as having colors or tones that shade into each other – used especially for fabrics in which the color is graduated from light to dark.

 

The recent trend in quilting has incorporated the use of ombre fabrics.  Here are some of our favorites!

 

Yipes! Stripes!

This Ombre Chevrons design can be achieved using our free tutorial for half square triangles and ombre fabric.

October Happenings

October is such a colorful month.  Nature brings us so many of these wonderful colors with the fall foliage, pumpkins, gourds and mums.  We can definitely begin to notice the shorter days and cooler evenings that is characteristic of October.

At the end of the month, we will be celebrating Halloween.  We have lots of Halloween patterns to share with you.

To help inspire those Halloween projects, we have put the orange and black fabric on sale.

Free Grocery Bag Kit

Paper bags were first used in retail for carrying items such as groceries around 1870.  At that time, it was a wonderful invention and remained the standard for about 100 years.  In 1975, plastic bags were introduced as a great invention at that time – wood was expensive, oil was cheap and plastic was the technology of the future. 

 

Unfortunately, 25 years later, it was discovered that over 4 billion plastic grocery bags per year do not get recycled, but rather end up in our rivers, oceans and mountains, causing harm to wildlife and add to pollution.

 

 Plastic Bags

 

While many cities and counties in California have already banned plastic shopping bags, the governor of California recently approved a state wide ban on plastic grocery bags.

 

At Lovequilting.com, we have used our tote die to come up with a grocery bag kit to encourage all our readers, even beyond the boundaries of California, to use re-useable grocery bags. 

 

 Grocery Bag

 

From now through Sunday, September 28th – for every $25 purchase, you will receive a FREE grocery bag kit!  The more you purchase – the more FREE kits you will receive.  If you spend $100, you will receive 4 FREE grocery bag kits!  No coupon codes necessary – we will include the kits with your purchase.  These bags are made out of 100% cotton fabric which has been pre-cut, and they are sturdy, re-useable, fashionable, washable and our instructions include no exposed seams to leave pesky threads.

Celebrate Fall Equinox with a Fabric Sale!

As we cycle through the seasons, we welcome and bid farewell to the seasonal fruits and vegetables.  Every season offers it’s very own special fruits and vegetables to the produce department, but one of my favorites is coming up.  Pumpkins!  I love all things pumpkin! 

 

If you have a special recipe that features pumpkin that you’d like to share with me, I will definitely try it.

 

I like sweet potatoes at this time of year too!  I don’t typically reach for orange when I’m buying clothes, but maybe there’s something about orange food that I’m attracted to.  Is there any orange in chocolate?!

 autumn

In celebration of the colorful autumn equinox, and to offer inspiration in your sewing room, we have put fabrics that read solid and most batiks on sale.

September Is Ovarian Cancer Awareness Month

September is Ovarian Cancer Awareness month.  I have a tremendous respect for all types of cancers and long term diseases.  But I have a special place in my heart for ovarian cancer, as this is the disease I watched my mother fight a courageous battle against and eventually lose her fight to.

 

At the beginning of her battle, I encouraged all the quilters I knew in both my circle of quilters and my mom’s circle of quilters, to make blocks of any pattern using teal fabric, the official color of hope for ovarian cancer.

 

I received many blocks from this request and was able to put together a quilt of hope and love for my mom as well as several other quilts that I donated.   I continued on this quest of making projects using teal and have donated many many projects over the past 6 years.  These donations have included quilts to be auctioned for fund raisers, quilts to patients from kids to adults, wall hangings to hang in hospitals and doctor’s offices to raise awareness, tote bags and pillows.

I have uploaded several free projects to the website for your use in your projects of hope and inspiration.  Also, be sure to check out all the free projects.  They can be customized to your cause by using a different focal color.

 Hope Collage

Please email me with a picture of your special creation and I will post them in the Gallery section along with your description of the project.

 

All of our teal and various shades of teal fabrics will be on sale throughout the month of September in honor of my mom.

September and Back to School

September begins today and for some, school has already begun, for others, it begins after this long weekend.  This Labor Day weekend for me was spent mostly in a hockey rink in San Jose, as the club travel season started.  The kids looked great and I definitely look forward to an exciting season.

 

While we were in San Jose, I had an opportunity to stop by and check out the Quilt Museum, for a very short time.  Click here for information on the current exhibits.

Quilt Museum 

This past week, we have also heard the high school marching band practice all day and into the evenings and they sound great this year!

 

All our sports and music themed fabrics are on sale this week – so be sure to check out the What’s on Sale?! Category.  Some of the patterns we like to showcase larger scale sports and music prints are Modern Living, The Big Bang and Tilted Block.  We also like Sliding Scales and the Custom Everyday Tote Kit.

In addition to back to school, September is ovarian cancer awareness month.  In memory of my mom, all teal and shades of teal fabric will be on sale all month.
