Scrappy Fall Colors - A Wall Hanging

This month's scrappy project started out as a lap quilt, but I liked the look so much I thought it would make a better wall hanging.

It's a bit of a departure from our usual quick scrappy projects. Although it's an easy pattern, there are quite a few smaller pieces and an accurate 1/4" seam allowance is important.

Scrappy Sneak Peek

This month's Scrap Busting project is almost done, so I decided to post a sneak peek. It's a fall wall hanging that I think you'll really like. Start sifting through your scraps for fabric that remind you of autumn and all those gorgeous leaf colors.

We'll be posting the tutorial in a day or two.

On the Road!

SassyPacks is hitting the road!

We are on our way to San Diego today, to participate in the San Diego Quilt Show.  We absolutely love going to  quilt shows - because we are an on-line store, we don't often get to meet our fabulous customers and fans.  Hearing the things you love, the challenges you face, and the ideas you have is what makes our jobs so much fun.

We are going to be debuting lots of new products at the quilt show, so if you are in the neighborhood, stop by and visit.  If not, stay tuned here and on our Facebook page to see some of the exciting new projects, kits, and bundles we will be offering in the coming months.

September marks three years since we launched, designed to bring you the best in contemporary fabrics, modern quilt projects, and tons of tips, tricks and ideas to inspire everyone from beginning to expert quilters.  With our website, Facebook, and this blog, we have had the chance to share our love of quilting with you, and see all your amazing projects and ideas.  It has been a great ride, and we are looking forward to quilting with you all for many more years.

So please - help us grow! Tell a friend about, forward your favorite blog post to your guild, and post your awesome quilt pics to our Facebook page.  Send us your questions, challenges, and mental blocks - we are here to help.  If you want to see SassyPacks at a quilt show in your area, drop us a note in the comments or email us here

Thanks for a super three years - hope to see you all soon!
