Customer Spotlights

To say we have a talented bunch of followers would be a huge understatement!

Today, I just wanted to show you a few of those talents that I'm talking about.

Projects from YOU!

Some wonderful things you have made with your SouthernFabric.com purchases!  So thanks in advance for sharing!

First up, a gorgeous use of Avalon by Fig Tree & Co.

Ms. Catherine Messer put together this Jacob's Ladder, and did a wonderful job.

Next up, 

First off, the colors.  
Don't you love these colors?  {*High Street by Lily Ashbury...we have some scrap bags last, so jump on your chance to get this great line!} 

Second, the quilting.
How awesome are the triangles in this quilting.  Perfect, I tell ya.

Third, the binding.
I'm a big fan of machine binding.  I, myself, do not have the patience for hand binding, especially on big quilts.  BUT, I've never thought to do anything besides a straight line and I'm LOVING this decorative stitch!

Well done ladies.

Thanks for letting us share your great talents!

Feature: Autumn Woods

Oh.  My.  Word.
I have no words to truly descirbe how I feel about this line.

Autumn Woods by Kate & Birdie.

I know I say it a lot {sorry, it's the truth} but I absolutely love this line.  
What's not to love, seriously.

The bright, sunny, yellow and orange suck me in and the navys and browns are just an added bonus!

I think I'm mostly in love with the hatch-mark look that Kate & Birdie use on each of their lines. 

{If you recall, other such beauties by Kate & Birdie are Bluebird Park and Winter's Lane.}

We currently offer Autumn Woods in various precuts and yardage!

Don't miss your chance on this fantastic line! Head on over to SouthernFabric.com today!

Tutorial: Baby Doll Pouch Blanket

The tutorial I bring you today is sheer genius, I tell ya.

I can't tell you how many times a day I am asked to help wrap up a doll {or animal or dinosaur or whatever toy} in a blanket just to find that it fell out two seconds later and crying wimpering children ask for a re-wrapping.


But you better believe I am gonna make a few of these bad boys.

A pouch, why didn't I think of that?!

Here's what you need:

Fabric 1: 24″ x 24″
Fabric 2: 24″ x 24″
Fabric 3 (Pouch): 26″ x 13″
Batting: 24″ x 24″
3 yards fabric binding
Head on over here to get the full tutorial.  And enjoy your once a day toy wrapping!!
I know I will!
