“Cuddle” Up This Fall with Shannon Cuddle + Giveaway!

“Cuddle” Up This Fall with Shannon Cuddle + Giveaway!

Don’t you just love Fall weather? You get to cuddle up in quilts, wear scarves and sweaters to stay cozy, but it’s not freezing cold like Winter! One of our favorite things to cuddle up in this time of year at Missouri Star Quilt Co. is Shannon Cuddle. It’s some of the softest, cuddliest, plushest stuff you’ll ever touch (it’s like wrapping up in a cloud of goodness)!

Over the years Jenny has used Cuddle for a number of projects, and she always uses it as the backing for her grandchildren’s quilts because they love it so much. Check out some of her projects below that would be great to make this Fall!

It doesn’t get much softer than this Cuddly Pillow Quilt! To make the same size quilt as Jenny, you’ll need 8 Shannon Cuddle Charm Packs and there are some darling ones to choose from! Wouldn’t a smaller version of this make a darling seat/floor cushion as well? So many ideas!

Have you ever heard of Fabriflair™? It’s a brand new product from Indygo Junction. Paper piecing with mat board templates to create beautiful three-dimensional projects that are eye catching and so much fun! You can learn more about it in our latest issue of Block Magazine.
Block Magazine! 10 quilt patterns for $5.99!Think…
  • Dimensional paper piecing
  • “Material” amusements for needle and thread
  • Eye candy for quilters
Fabriflair™ kits are such a clever, unique way to showcase favorite fabrics, embroidery and fiber art for quilters and sewers alike. And they’re quick projects, so it’s a nice break from always feeling like you have to finish those UFOs and PHDs.
Here’s how it works: Cover pre-cut, rigid mat board templates with your favorite fabrics and piece them together into decorative and functional projects. It’s English Paper Piecing with a twist and it’s dimensional so no need to remove the “papers” or “templates”. Whether you pull from your stash for a more eclectic look or grab a precut pack from your favorite designer’s new line, once you start stitching you will find it’s addictive!
Take a look at this short video for a peek at the process:
My name is Amy Barickman. Check out my book Vintage Notions and RJR fabric lines for more of my story. My company Indygo Junction has produced patterns and books inspired by my extensive collection of vintage patterns, fabrics and embroidery designs. Fabriflair™ was inspired by a dimensional star I found created with feed sack prints with buttons accenting the center of each star! It started with a star and now we have 6 kits available!
Fabriflair™ is the perfect on-the-go project for quilters. Easily portable and perfect for pre-cuts! If you love to keep your hands busy, these can easily be stitched in your leisure time while watching sporting events (kids or on TV) or listening to your favorite podcast!
While you can make Fabriflair™ for yourself showcasing your favorite new charm pack, you can also personalize Fabriflair™ for friends and family using all kinds of themed/novelty fabrics!
We are huge Royals Fans here in Kansas City! 2016 World Champs! How about combining your team’s fabric and up-cycling shirting for this Brio Sphere. I am also Kansas Jayhawk Alumni and die hard fan!!! Here’s my Radiant Star showcasing a combination of several novelty team fabrics.
Customize Fabriflair kits with your favorite fabrics!
Christmas will be here before we know it!  I love the large Radiant Star as a centerpiece or even a tree topper!
My favorite ornaments on my tree are hand made with a story! Try making a Trilliant Ornament or Brio Sphere with vintage fabric and beads or personalize with an embroidered name. A perfect keepsake to make with leftover fabrics from your quilt. Stitch up an ornament to accompany a quilt you are giving as a gift!!

This tutorial features the beautiful Uppercase 2.5″ Strips by Janine Vangool for Windham Fabrics. Aren’t they gorgeous? They’re so bright and happy that they give the perfect pop to this quilt! In fact, we love it so much that we’ve teamed up with Janine to do a little fabric feature and giveaway!

UPPERCASE-JanineVangoolStudio

The Uppercase Fabric line was inspired by Uppercase Magazine, which was founded by Janine Vangool and is operated by her and her family. The rich, saturated colors paired with neutrals brings this line full circle for any project that might need some happy, positive energy. Janine used small scale monocromatic prints in her designs to add depth to each color that can be used as a more dynamic alternative to solid color fabrics. If you can’t tell, we love it!

So, today we’re giving away a 1-year subscription to Uppercase Magazine (North American addresses only), 3 single copies of Uppercase Magazine (North American Addresses only), as well as a beautiful Uppercase Fabric Bundle! Find out the ways to enter below (All entry options are optional, but you have to choose at least one to enter!) That means there will be FIVE winners!!
