Alchemy Quilting Cottons by Amy Butler & Last Minute Holiday Projects!

Alchemy Quilting Cottons by Amy Butler are NOW in the shop and we couldn't be more excited!! Amy's first release of Alchemy was some FABULOUS Organic Cottons but this grouping is more for that running around town for errands skirt, those every day home decor projects and rough and tumble quilts that you're not afraid to let the kids use! And they are JUST as gorgeous!!

Loving the simple quilts in just a few choice prints. It makes it easier for planning out a project plus its a little easier on the eyes to use just a few bold prints in quilt!

And who doesn't love breathing new life into a room with the addition of a few sweet and simple pillows in awesome coordinating fabrics! Add a throw and a Honey Bun Pouf or Gum Drop Pillow and you've got a living room re-do waiting to happen!! And at only $10.50 a yard, you can even spring to make some to-die for curtains!!

Even though its getting close to the deadline, you STILL have time to grab some of these fab prints and make something adorable for a last minute Christmas present! Create an easy skirt, simple tote, or zipper bag!! Or, use one of Amy's NEW FREE PATTERNS designed specifically for Alchemy!!
How awesome are these funky designs??? Just click the image to download the PDF, read the fabric requirements, then SHOP THE COLLECTION to get all the yardage needed for your new project!!

Or make one of these adorbale pillows with FREE TUTORIALS from Sew4Home!! The top Piped Pillow with Tassels is super fun and festive and the Fussy Cut Frame Pillow is just too cute for how little effort is required!!! Both of these cute projects could be done in a day, so come on out to the Cabbage Rose tomorrow and grab some of these pretty prints for some last minute gifts that the recipient is SURE to love!!

If you've been following along with our 12 Days of Christmas Sales each day, you'll know that today is a good one!!! Today only, ALL of our Pre-Cut Bundles are 25% OFF!!! That's right, One Yard, Fat Quarter and Fat Eighth Bundles are all on sale in time for you to get some just in time for Christmas projects in for a lot less!

And since we have TONS of Fat Quarter Bundles in the shop in gorgeous collections, I thought it would be fun to do a little Fat Quarter Project Roundup and it just so happens that our amazing friends at Art Gallery Fabrics do a fabulous series on their blog called The Fat Quarter Gang where lots of talented ladies (and fellas!) share FREE PROJECTS utilizing Fat Quarters! All of these ideas are wonderful and I picked some fun ones for Christmas creating! Like these adorable Scrappy Stockings!! I just hung my store-bought ones the other day and have been thinking they look awfully sad! I may just have to make a scrappy pair or two this week!!
How sweet is this Easy Fat Quarter Skirt? I love a strippy skirt on young girls, its an especially fun way to play with pattern and color! Grab a Color Story Bundle and make several skirts for your daughters, neices, grandbabies or any little lady in your life!

LOVING the Indie Project Bag!! Everyone I know needs a good tote bag and this is the perfect design for toting around whatever new project your working on, your daily essentials or even a few books on a short day of classes! Perfect for any age depending on what fabrics you choose!!

And since we are living in the age of technology, I'm sure you have a few people you could create the Wrapped Up Kindle Cover for this holiday season!! Make it bold, neutral geometrics for a man or do some juicy colorblocking for a funky lady! If you're giving a new Kindle for Christmas, it would be super cute to give it in one of these handmade covers! I bet you could even adapt the pattern for other sized devices if you're not a Kindle family!
This lovely Quilted Pillow Sham is a great addition to a bedroom redo or to pair with a new quilt you are giving someone for Christmas! Simple as pie but the result looks SEW chic! Great for a travel themed gift too, no one could ever leave a pillow behind dressed like that!
There are lots more of these awesome Fat Quarter Gang Projects on the Art Gallery Blog so be sure to browse them all! I'm sure you'll find the perfect project for those new bundles you get ON SALE TODAY!!!
