X marks the spot! Welcome to Blackbird Designs for our day on the Moda's, Spell it With Fabric blog roll. X is our letter of course, because we love cross stitch.
Above are some pictures of our booth from Fall Quilt Market, 2013. We used all of the letter patterns to make the full alphabet quilt using our Plum Sweet fabric line. We love how it turned out. (I just wish I had a granddaughter to wrap up in this quilt!) We also made a table runner using the letters, and spelled out "Plum Sweet." There are too many things on our market table for you to really see it in the pictures above. Check it out in the picture below, on my dining room table. I think a birthday table runner would be fun. Pick your favorite words and sew a special banner for the one you love!
Get our letter X pattern here.
Still have some of my Christmas ornaments up? You bet! I think I'll take the snow flakes down when the weather warms up. Might be in June or July the way our weather has been here.
Need a bundle of Plum Sweet? Leave a comment and I will run the random number generator and pick a winner on Friday. I think there is almost enough to do all the alphabet in this bundle! You will have to add a bit for the borders....and the good news is this line will be in the shops soon. Go here for a picture of all the prints.
Below are the listings for everyone in the Moda blog hop. Check them all out for the remainder of the letters and prizes too!
