So when you find something cute, it's always best to share it with your friends, right?
These days we are all shopping online a little more than we probably ever did before, I know I sure am, and since I work from home full time, I often go from my night time pajamas to my day time pajamas with a shower in between (LOL). So I decided to do some online shopping, spring time comes pretty soon here in Austin Texas, and I am always looking for something bright and fun for the days I leave the house. So check this out!!
I found this super fun online store called Zappy Dots and they agreed to offer a 20% off discount code to all my friends for your first order! How fun is that? You will need to use the code Zappy20 and you can include @zappydots as well as the hashtag #zappydots if you share to your social media. They have some great apparel to help you accessorize outside your creative spaces by bringing you wearable designs from amazing quilters, cross stitchers, and artists! Naturally, I picked Kaffe, and let me tell you these are so soft and comfy, you are going to feel like you are still in your pj's but you are NOT going to look like it!!
They also have all sorts of accessories, and gifts too!
I shared direct links to the things that I have here down on the bottom, along with a few videos, trust me, you are going to love these clothes, they even have some options for those creative men in your life!!
Hope you enjoy these super cute items!
When the stars align, it can only be Serendipity! We are proud to present the 2021 Serendipity Quilt Along! Join us as we go row-by-row in making this beautiful quilt featuring Spring Brook by Corey Yoder for Moda Fabrics!
Our Serendipity Quilt and Cross Stitch Chart benefit Make-a-Wish Central & South Texas.
As we embark on our 8th Annual Charity Quilt we continue to be amazed by the generosity of this sewing community and inspired by the stories of the children who have been granted life-changing Wishes. The way the fundraiser works is that we offer the Serendipity patterns as FREE downloads during the event for a suggested donation of $5 each to our Make-A-Wish Central & South Texas campaign. Or feel free to make a larger, one-time donation of $50. No amount is too small and every bit counts. We’ll start releasing the seven patterns that make up this quilt on March 1, 2021. Every two weeks we will publish a new pattern on the Jolly Jabber Blog, or I will share links here too.
Here are some details from the Fat Quarter Shop:
To make a quilt just like this one, you’ll need the Serendipity Quilt Kit and Serendipity Specialty Pieced Backing Set, available only at Fat Quarter Shop.
Our exclusive quilt kit includes 11.5 yards of Spring Brook fabric designed by Corey Yoder and a background from Thatched, all from Moda Fabrics. This includes all fabric to complete the quilt blocks along with background, borders and binding for the Serendipity quilt. In addition to the fabric, this kit includes three specialty Foundation Paper Piecing Pads by It’s Sew Emma that will be happy helpers for tricky blocks. (You will be able to piece these blocks without the foundation paper using the included pattern instructions, we just really like how perfectly precise they make the blocks!) Bonus alert – the kit comes packaged in an exclusive keepsake box with magnetic closure.
A second bonus of purchasing this quilt kit is that you will have all the block and finishing patterns before they are released from March through July of 2021. The Serendipity printed pattern set will only be available early as part of this kit.
The quilt finishes at 64.5″ x 74.5″ and is suitable for confident beginners to experienced quilters. You can also use your own choice of fabrics by using our fabric requirements and checking back every two weeks to download the patterns as they are posted!
I was lucky enough to be able to do the long arm quilting on this one, and it's just breathtaking to see in person, y'all are going to love it! Here are some behind the seams pics I took...
Kimberly picked out a panto design called Floral and I used Glide 60 thread (color Cool Grey 3) and I love it because it sinks in and doesn't overpower the background color in the pattern.
I hope you'll join in, this is such a great cause. Lets all help the children.
Happy New Year to all my quilty friends! 2020 was such a strange year, filled with uncertainties, and difficulties, but it was also filled with a lot of family, and love. During this past year I have been so blessed to build new friendships with such great people, I have welcomed many new clients and continued to work with old ones, while reminding myself during the hard days how much I love what I am able to do each day. Being a long arm quilter has brought me so much joy, having my days filled with color and design does not suck! So I just wanted to take a minute to thank all of you for being here with me!
I just uploaded all kinds of new pictures on my webisite home page from this year if you want to check them out. I am so excited, I have some big dreams for 2021, and I have some fun things that are scheduled to happen, and a lot of hope that some other things will fall into place, so please stay tuned...
I am most active on Instagram these days, so if you don't already follow me there, I'd love for you to come check it out.

Once you find me (@gina_tell_threadgraffit) you can click on the link in my profile, and that will take you to images of all the things I share, and a direct link will be there to shop for those items, it's a new feature for me, so I am pretty excited!
At the end of each year it's fun to compile the top 9 Instagram posts in one place to share, and these are mine from 2020, wow I had 85K likes this year, y'all rock!
Everything here can be purchased at Fat Quarter Shop, because they are awesome and have all things quilty and fabulous, and did you know they have a flash sale every day with some great discounts on products you need!?
