Sponsor Introduction {& Giveaway}: Fiddlehead Artisan Supply

I’m thrilled to introduce you to my very first sponsor, my local quilt shop located in Belfast, Maine–Fiddlehead Artisan Supply. Fiddlehead Artisan Supply is a family-owned sewing, quilting, and craft-supply shop in beautiful midcoast Maine. In addition to a great selection of modern quilting cottons, patterns, thread, and notions, Fiddlehead offers a wide range of other craft supplies all within one of the most aesthetically pleasing shops I’ve visited. It’s a haven for makers. Just for my readers, Fiddlehead is offering 15% off anything in their online shop with the code nightquilter15%.

To kick-off our partnership, Abby at Fiddlehead invited me to curate a bundle of low volume fabrics, AND is offering a bundle as a giveaway to one of my readers. I love low volume fabrics, since they are so versatile in quilting and just about anything. There’s nothing like a scrappy low volume background to help colors pop.

– Dotti’s Cousin in Natural, Mochi by Rashida Coleman Hale for Cotton + Steel

Just for fun, and since I have a baby shower to attend this weekend, I decided to whip up a quick project using this bundle. I made a one hour basket (free pattern by Kelby Sews) using the fabrics from this bundle and some scraps of Alison Glass’s Sun Prints Grove.

I love these low volumes!

The recipient of this basket hasn’t found out the gender of her baby, so I thought the sleek low volumes and pops of color were the perfect combination.

  1. That bundle is great! I appreciate that my LQS hosts our guild’s classes for free. They are very generous with their space! However, I don’t often find fabric there that inspires me (they are on the traditional side). I do feel that small-business online quilt stores deserve some love too, especially when it comes to awesome bundles like this one!

  2. I have a few shops in my area. While all of them do not fit my particular style, I find that the people at each one have a wealth of information on products and techniques and are happy to share lots of great ideas and make helpful suggestions.

  3. Unfortunately I don’t have any LQS 😦 I look for good service good prices and excellent shipping prices when looking online.

  4. What I love about my local quilt shop is the owner. She such a charming lafdy. But I wish there were more modern fabrics. They have mostly batics which aren’t my thing at all.

  5. I like the new fabric lines my local quilt shop has. And that they put the older fabric lines on sale. I know I’m late to jump on the low volume craze, but this bundle has inspired me!
