50% off sales - Quilting fabric, books, patterns

Cottage Quilts is having a year-end clearance on selected (8 pages) patterns, magazines and books -- most are 50% off. You can find them here:

However, if you use the code SAVE MORE in the Special Instructions box at check-out, they will deduct another 10%. Note, however, that the additional 10% will NOT appear in your invoice and will be taken off manually -- so watch your final charges.


Stitchin' Heaven is also having a sale -- this on fabrics and panels -- many at $2.00 per yard and panels at $4.48 each and up. While supplies last.

I've mentioned before that I use panels for a way to practice my machine quilting. They're a great size, and they usually have some kind of theme characters or items (cars, trucks, angels, houses) that you can use to practice outline stitches, then surround them with a meandering stitch to make them pop. Add a quick border and you've not only practiced your machine quilting, but have a baby or donation quilt ready to go when you're done.


We've been talking in the QOB Yahoo group about using home dec fabrics for tote bags, so I thought I'd mention that JoAnn's (national chain) stores have their Home Dec fabrics on sale this week at 50% off.

I often see great sales at but they are almost all one day sale events, so by the time I'm ready to post about them, the sale is almost over. So -- my advice to you -- sign up for's newsletter and get the info in email every day. Not all their sales are quilting fabric, but many are! They are having a "Designer Fabric BlowOut Sale" through 01/19, including Amy Butler fabrics. You can sign up for the daily newsletter here:

That's all I have for today!
