I want to welcome anyone that is visiting from Sew Mama Sew’s Giveaway Day! I am giving away a $30 gift certificate to BackSide Fabrics and 2 paper piecing patterns (of your choice) from Kitty @Night Quilter!
I have made several larger quilts recently, and I have found the selecting of wide quilt backing fabrics at BackSide Fabrics to have just what I needed for each project. They also have great customer service and are quick to communicate should fabric be inadvertently out-of-stock, which I greatly appreciate!
Christine Scholz is the owner of BackSide Fabrics, which is an internet only, family run business. They specialize in wide quilt backing fabrics that are both beautiful and affordable, and Quilters Dream Batting. BackSide Fabrics was born from Christine’s longarm machine quilting business, The Quilting Patch. The Quilting Patch opened for business in May of 2004 after the purchase of a Proto Stitch Wizard longarm quilting machine. Clients kept asking if I carried wide quilt backs, so the light bulb went on! After doing some research, I found that there was a need in the quilting community for an online store that specialized in a large selection of beautiful and affordable wide quilt backings. BackSide Fabrics opened for business in June 2007!
Kitty @Night Quilter is an amazing quilter and paper piecing pattern designer. In her own words:
I’m a stay at home mom of two littles, wife, sewist of quilts and other beautiful things, knitter, gardener, yogi, and all in all lover of life. With two little kids, my only sewing time is after bedtime. Thus the night quilter was born.
Kitty has a fabulous eye for color and her photography of her work is stunning. You can view Kitty’s selection of paper piecing patterns in her Craftsy store and in the image below.
If you are new to my blog, I hope you take a minute to have a look around. I host a weekly link party called Quilty Thankful Thursday where we can share our gratitude for sewing wonders big and small, I have a series of philosophical discussions and posts, I have a selection of quilt patterns for sale, and I have been working to expand my series of tips and tutorials! Here is a quick mosaic of a few of the projects I have worked on recently.
