Welcome to the Jolly Jabber! This month we're all about cats! Whether or not you're a fan of the felines, these items are purr-fect for the picking. Get 20% OFF all of our monthly picks all October long!
We love anything and everything Cotton + Steel basics this month. It might be hard to see the cat correlation here, but we have it on good authority that some of the C+S folks are cat people!
With a focus on colorful and easy projects, the Easy-Cut Baby Quilts is perfect for last minute gifts on your list.
These little kittens are the cutest aren't they? Pair them with your favorite autumn colors or Elizabeth Hartman's new collection, Rhoda Ruth for a colorful twist.
Support your little critters with the Small Kennel Quilt Thread Kit by Aurifil. Aurifil has partnered with The Quilt Pattern Magazine to donate a portion of the proceeds from each Thread Kit to the Petfinder Foundation.

Welcome back to another FQS Takes on a BOM recap! We are gearing up for Houston Quilt Market and Quilt Festival this month, but we're squeezing our sewing projects before we leave for Houston! Let's take a look at everyone's progress.
Kimberly has been busy sewing all kinds of fun projects on Instagram. This month marks our ninth Snapshots Quilt Along block, called Quilty Cat.
Since 2016 is around the corner, we've also been working on our upcoming Charity Quilt called Crossroads. More information coming soon, but here is a sneak peek at this beautiful quilt.
It's the start of our 1930's Farmer's Wife Sew Along with Angie of Gnome Angel and Kimberly has sewn her first three blocks!
With the launch of our NEWEST It's Sew Emma book, Fat Quarter Baby, Kimberly personally sewed all twenty quilts in the book! Here is a little peek at our newest addition.
Jocelyn's Chandelier quilt blocks from the Chandelier Quilt Along are slowly growing! We love her green and yellow color palette.
Codi is almost done with her Vacation Time Block of the Month with Pat Sloan! Time to add on the borders and finishing!
Say hello to Stalfos from the Zelda Quilt Along! He's supposed to be a little mean and scary but he also looks like he's dancing in this quilt block.

Consider yourself warned! We have lots of adorableness to share today from our Fat Quarter Baby book photoshoot. Last week, we gave you the tiniest teaser...
Today you get to see lots and lots more! But there are so many fat quarter quilts in this book (TWENTY!), let's go through it bit by bit.
Every baby (or mommy) is unique and has a different style!
Maybe the lean toward the nature-inspired cuddly themes.
With some little ones, other activities take priority - like knocking down blocks, cooing at planes, and making music.
For little girls, who are we kidding? Sometimes it's just about being pretty, girl and princess-y.
How about some brights to cheer up Mom and Dad when they're changin the 18th diaper of the day? Not that they're counting (but they are).
And of course some nice, calming quilts to lull baby to sleep (for more than 4 hours hopefully...).
The common thread for all of these quilts? LOVE! We love every single one of the quilts in the Fat Quarter Baby. We hope you love making them for YOUR special bundles of joy too! We also challenge you to make EVERY SINGLE QUILT in the book!!
Our Fat Quarter Baby Book is due in November 2015 so be sure to pre-order your copy today to get 10% OFF the retail price!
