Looking for a Few Good Sewists!

Is Fabric Stash your favorite page of Quilt magazine? Do you love digging through your stash to find the perfect pieces to make a block? We’re looking for volunteers to participate in a Fabric Stash quilt-along.

Here’s the deal:

We’ll send you the pattern for a Fabric Stash block before the new issue goes on sale. You make a block in whatever color scheme/prints you like. Email us a photo of your block, your headshot, and a short paragraph talking about why you chose the fabrics/colors you did, what you like about it, etc. We’ll feature your block, photo, and write-up on our website, our Facebook page, and our Pinterest page.

Sorry, there’s no compensation for this, but we’re happy to give a plug to your blog or website if you have one. Plus, you’ll be famous among Quilt magazine followers!

If you’re interested, please leave a comment below (including your email address, so we can contact you), or leave a comment on Facebook (again, including your email address, so we can contact you).

    I would love to help out. I’ve just started quilting and teach Family & Consumer Sciences at school and we picked a lap quilt as our class project. The joy that the students and I had to see the finished project!
    I have bought fabric for 3 more quilts! I am loving my new hobby.

    What a great idea to get us busy using up our “stash” – so we can go out and buy more, of course. My fabric closet is full, and this would be a fun thing to do.

    I would love to be involved in the “stash buster” fun. Is it only for quilt blocks, or might it also involve other small projects? I have quite a stash to use up.
    Thank you for such an invitation!.
