Let’s sip tea and get comfy
It’s Monday. I know, I know, some of you don’t like Mondays, but that is why I’ve chose THIS day in particular to always post about fabrics. Hopefully, the fabric gushing makes it a little better? Find all Monday posts here.
Today, I’m drinking my usual tea, this one. It is my favorite and fills the whole room with a cinnamon and clove scent.
Be sure to scroll to the bottom of this post, I’m having a giveaway.
I had to share these adorable vintage quilt mugs I found on Create For Less. Definitely adding these to my wish list!
Saturday, I came out with my big news, the starting of the Morning Sun quilt along. You can read more about this quilt along here.
This custom bundle of AGF prints is what I'm using for the quilt I'll be making with all who are joining in. I'm pretty smitten.
Let's get down to the nitty gritty and show you exactly what print is what...
Low volumes I'm using:
- Make Drafts Paper
- Looming Stone
- Shredded Chess
- Flyaway Petalums
- Stitched Anthomania
- Lillium Expectations
Prints I'm using
I mentioned this past Saturday that there is an option for the quilt along where you can have all the fabrics cut into correct sizes and delivered to your door each month. If you are interested in doing this, please visit the details for that here.

Visit Uberstitch on IG here, Facebook here.
This fabric, Stitched Anthromania by Pat Bravo is my favorite I'm using in this quilt. I do consider it to be a low volume, but it's a bit of a loud one, isn't it? It gets used in the inner corners of the Morning Sun quilt.
This one is called Clover Field. Remember last week when we were discussing how to put fabrics together. One of the methods, was to choose a focal print and add fabrics based on what coordinated with your focal print. Well, I used that method in choosing these fabrics and this fabric was my focal print. I think it's stunning.
My favorite part of this quilt is that it looks like one large quilt block. The next best thing to me is that it uses a whole bunch of low volume fabrics and that means LOTS of negative space.
Here's another favorite fabric print, Remembrose Doilies. I love the delicate roses and that yummy mint color.
If you haven't signed up for the quilt along there is still plenty of time. We are not starting until February 1. If you wanted to sign up for the fabrics delivered to your door, there is limited quantities available, so I'd suggest doing that soon. Read about the fabric subscription here.

If I win I will use it for the quilt along!
I just downloaded your falling slowly quilt. That would be my next venture with these lovely fabrics!
Jessamyn Hawkins says
Such pretty fabrics! I would add them to my scrappy stash of course. Love your new sew along! I’m soooo tempted to sew along but I’m not sure yet. ??
Mary J says
flying geese–I have a need to make them 🙂
Carol Valenzuela says
This is a great giveaway. I would use it for the quiltalong! ?
I would start the quilt a long. I am always inspired by the idea of a qal but I have yet to do one. This would be a good jump start
Heather D says
Honestly it’s been so long since I’ve had new fabric specifically for a new quilt project, I don’t even know what I would use it for. I’d probably just stare at it for a while!
Linda Cecil says
Love the fabric bundle. I would sure be tempted to join the quit along if I won the bundle.
What would I do if I won these fabrics? Hoard them! Then take them out occasionally to pet them.
Rachel Carson says
I have no idea what I would use these fabrics for, so in the stash they will go. I’m trying to sew my stash at the moment & make more quilts for us at home instead of giving them away all the time. My kids have one each & I’ve nearly finished one for myself. That’s not too bad out of the 13 odd that I’ve made so far. Being an amateur I’m fairly slow, trying to teach myself new things each year.

I’d use them for this qal!
