Bloomington bundle giveaway with LouLou’s Fabric Shop

Last weekend I had a play date with myself in my sewing room. I pulled out my stash of Lella Boutique fabrics and admired some of my favorite prints. I rifled through my pattern basket for project ideas. I didn’t have a plan, but I felt compelled to create. For me that is the true joy of sewing. Turning myself over to the process, letting the outside world fall away, becoming happily focused on something basic and beautiful.
So today I\’m sharing a little peek at what I was up to. Mostly I just cut some fabric and made a few test blocks, but it was a happy time in the sewing room! I settled in on the following fabrics, all from Moda, for my next project:
  • Six prints from Harvest Road (Lella Boutique)
  • Two prints from Farmer’s Daughter (Lella Boutique): the taupe gingham and the cream text print
  • One print from Sweet Tea (Sweetwater): the navy text print
  • Indigo Chambray (Moda 12051 13) which will likely be my background fabric



While making some simple hourglass blocks, I was delighted to see where the “love” showed up ~ all on its own without me forcing it to happen. I guess there are life lessons in sewing!

LouLou’s Fabric Shop and I would like to share the sewing love with you today by hosting a giveaway! Those sweet folks at LouLou’s are offering this gorgeous fat quarter bundle of Lella Boutique’s newest collection, Bloomington, to one of my lucky readers! We hope you’ll feel inspired to create!
