February Fat Quarter Collection: Hapi by Amy Butler

Our first blog post of 2014!  Wow! It's actually our first blog post in quite some time.  I have a few things I'd like to tell all of my friends so I think this is the best place to do that.


2014 is bringing some changes to A Joyful Soul Fabrics.  First and foremost, we are not vending at any shows this year.  Travel is hard and it is especially hard when you have to do it by yourself.  With Chief retired from the Navy and working a civilian job, it's just not likely that he would have been able to take off 1-2 times a month to help out so...no more.


With the shows out of the way, that will enable us to concentrate on our manufacturing business and our Fat Quarter Clubs!  I am really looking forward to sharing some creativity with all of you!  Our Mini Monster is doing SO well!  This is our Travel Pressing Board we make here in our studio.






Because EVERYONE must have a cute pressing board in their sewing space!   If you are interested in learning more or purchasing our Mini Monster Pressing Board, email us at 
shop {at} ajoyfulsoulfabrics {dot} com.  
We don't quite have our website ready to sell them online so we are filling orders via phone and email!  Mini Monster Travel Pressing Board with Coordinating Carry Tote, $49.95 (plus tax and shipping).

And now for the fun stuff!  Our February Fat Quarter Collection is Hapi by Amy Butler.  Here are the fat quarters we chose for your collection:



If you are a club member and would like the entire collection, let us know and your shipping charge will be $0 (international members will receive a discount equal to the cost of domestic shipping)!  
(Full collection is $70.00)


I was dreaming up some fun projects for Hapi and came up with these cute little coin purses!  The first is a Zakka Style totally mini coin purse.  Adorable!  But a little too small for my needs!  

Free pattern from: Cotton & Cloud 

I did a little more research and found a fabulous pattern that you can ad lib to make your very own shape and sized coin purse on Moda's Bake Shop.  (Charm and Layer Cake Friendly too!)


By the way, if you're looking for some cute coin purse frames, I found these on etsy.com.  They shipped very quickly from China, are super cute and pretty inexpensive if you buy them in bulk!

If a quilt is more your speed, your collection will include a free gift this month!  The Honey Bouquet Rose Card pattern by Villa Rosa Designs is a free gift this month!  Here is my quilt top using this pattern:





Not sold on the placement just yet but I'll finish it up tomorrow afternoon and post an updated picture.  This pattern is perfect to let the fabric do the work for you.  This line is stunning!  It simply glows when melded together.  No fancy piecing or patterns are necessary.  Use this quick and easy pattern and let Hapi be the STAR!

So there you have it!  A little inspiration for what to do with your February Club Collection!  

Next month is Botanique by Joel Dewberry....I can not wait!
