I’m all gloat and cackle this morning, after having picked up a huge box from the post office, stuffed with this great big fat stash of my Cut Out & Keep collection for the Designer Series from Cloud9 Fabrics. It’s been held up in Customs for ages, so it’s joy quadrupled to actually have these fabrics in my hands. The collection was launched at the beginning of April, and aired again at the Quilt Market last week, and they’re selling really well. So exciting!
Also squeezed into the box was a sampling of New Jersey’s finest cuisine. After a volley of Tweets about local food some time back, a food swap was arranged, and Michelle from Cloud9 sent me these delicacies from The Garden State:
It’s still pretty early, so I haven’t tucked into those Cheez Doodles yet, but can vouch for the Pretzel M&Ms. Mmm-mmm. “Crunchy, Sweet, Salty”, they certainly are. Thanks for the treats and laffs, Michelle!
It’s taken a while to announce the winner of the Cut Out & Keep fat quarter bundle, as I was totally overwhelmed with entries. Sifting through 534 comments to make a database out of which to draw a winner is no small feat. But enough about my pain and agony, let’s cut to the chase:
Michelle Engel Bencsko has done the draw (via random number selection on Twitter), and the winner of the Cut Out & Keep fat quarter bundle by Heather Moore for Cloud9 Fabrics is….
Jess, from UCT! And in totally crazy odds, out of all those hundreds of entries from all over the world, it’s a Cape Town gal who has won the prize.
Well done, Jess. I’ve sent you an email, and I”m looking forward to getting that pile of yummy prints delivered to you. xx

I thought I’d spend some of my Making Friday learning how to make an animated gif of pics I took of this Cut Out & Keep fat quarter bundle that just arrived in the mail from Cloud9 Fabrics. Thanks to a video tutorial found on YouTube via Google, it took me all of 10 minutes to work it out, so there was lots of Making Friday left to go shopping and to finish off my curtains.
Happy Weekend, everyone!
Michelle of Cloud9 is so awesome, I wouldn’t be surprised if she could fly, and maybe she can. It certainly looks like she and her cute sneakers took flight on this piece of fabric from my Cut Out & Keep collection. There’s so much going on over at Cloud9, where pre-0rders for the collection are being taken already, so hop over to the Cloud9 blog to keep up to date.
PS: If you’re in Philadelphia, visit Michelle and Gina at Spool this Saturday, where they’ll be sneak-peeking the Cut Out & Keep collection. Wish I had a pair of winged sneakers and could fly over there too.
I’ve been a fan of UK pattern blog Print & Pattern for, like, ever! So am particularly thrilled to see that Bowie Style has given the nod of approval to my Cut Out & Keep organic fabrics for Cloud9. See the article here.
