National Quilting Month: perfect time for a precut party (+ sale)

40% off select eBooks this week only

Who needs a reason to party? We’ve got one for you—the party starts tomorrow, it lasts all month long, and everyone who has a love affair with fabric is welcome.

If you haven’t guessed, we’ll tell you: March is National Quilting Month!

National-Quilting-Day(Better still, today is Leap Year day. Count it in March and you get a whole extra day of sewing. 😄)

Mark your calendars for the highlight of the month: National Quilting Day is on March 19, 2016. You can bet your local quilt shop, quilt guild, and quilt buddies are planning for a big patchwork party, so no excuses—you simply must make time to do something quilty that day!

Every year since we launched Stitch This!, we’ve shared ideas for celebrating this special month.

In 2012, we offered you a free patchwork pattern so you could teach someone to quilt.

In 2013, we gave you three fun ways to throw a patchwork party.

In 2014, we supplied a download to our free how-to booklets so you could learn something new and spread the joy of quilting to others.

In 2015, we helped you shop your local quilt store in style with a free printable shopping list for quilters.

But really, there’s only one thing quilters need to do to celebrate National Quilting Month: make time to sew. So this week, we’re slashing the price of four eBooks that contain fabulous patterns for that already-slashed fabric: precuts!

Pick your precut preference: fat quarters, Jelly Rolls, charm squares, Layer Cakes, or all of the above. Download an eBook below and you’re ready to party with precuts all month long!

Charmed, I'm SureCharmed, I’m Sure: Quilts and More from 5″ Squares
Lesley Chaisson

So many charms—sew many quilts! Many of the projects in Charmed, I’m Sure allow you to use whole charm squares, so a lot of the cutting is done before you start. Lap quilts, runners, and twin-size bed quilts use up to three charm packs and just one or two coordinating fabrics.

Wonder BlocksWonder Blocks: Stack, Cut, Sew, and Go
Terry Martin

Terry invented her “wonder blocks” when a guild raffle quilt she was making started running behind schedule. Seven stack-and-cut, fat-quarter friendly block designs are perfect for creating row-and-column layouts, framing fabric panels, and combining with orphan blocks too.

Moda All-Stars All in a RowBONUS IDEA: Meeting with a group of quilting buddies during National Quilting Month? We recently received this fun icebreaker idea from Elizabeth of the Westside Quilters Guild of Oregon. She suggests hosting a “get to know you” event with the quirky questions asked of the designers in Moda All-Stars All in a Row. Fill in the blank–style questions like “I can’t begin a new project unless…” and “I’m currently obsessed with…” will have the whole group giggling! For more fun questions especially for quilters, pick up the book Moda All-Stars All in a Row. Join the #allinarowquiltalong too!
