acraftyfox_amanda Just curiosity, do you tell people you quilt? How do most people react when they find out? 2h
  •   radianthomestudio I find it funny that the older ladies in the quilt shop assume I wandered in by accident and have no idea what I'm looking for. Usually it takes asking for a new line of fabric by name before they realize I know how to sew. 38min
  •   suesewcrafty Yes and like many of the others that posted a comment, people are surprised and think only grandmas quilt. They also have no idea how much time and money it costs to make one. 36min
  •   texheks Sometimes I tell people, but it feels like a confession. .. in my head...but still... 34min
  •   quiltiferous I do tell people, but I get the "homeschool, SAHM, crafter mom" eyeroll sometimes. Because of course, I have more time in a day than other moms! 22min
  •   artfulife @radianthomestudio same here! Lol! I'm almost 40! You'd think I was a wee bit seasoned for quilting 22min
  •   colourmehappy88 Other favorite reactions..."it must be nice to have that kind of time" or "huh." 18min
  •   jennthurston I tell people just to see the shock on their faces, I then follow it up with I also own a fabric store . 7min

acraftyfox_amanda When my mom left my house last time, I handed her an @sweetwaterfabric bundle of Wishes and @nightingalequilts Dawn Blossom pattern. And on Sunday she sent me this picture. Didn't it turn out so pretty?! Thank you, @prsd4tim2!!! 1d

acraftyfox_amanda So, it looks like I will be doing a bit of #secretsewing this week! THANK YOU everyone who helped me make it to the final three #sewvivor contestants! Since I can't even hint what I'll be making for the final round, here's a pretty picture of my Miss Kate/Daysail quilt made with all #bonnieandcamille fabrics. I love how this turned out! (Sail Away Pattern and miss Kate fabrics available in our little shop westwoodacresfabric.com and pst! Free fat quarter bundles are back - no coupon necessary!) 2d

acraftyfox_amanda I haven't shown too much of our #insidevoicesclub bundles but this one is so fun I can't keep it to myself! By request, as many texty prints as I could get my hands on with just a dash of pink. #istilllovelowvolume 2d

  •   swimbikequilt The archives??? Tell him I'm adopting that one. It's perfect. 4d

  •   acraftyfox_amanda I really apologize. I packaged it myself on Thursday so I have no idea what happened. If you send me your new address, I'll put a second one in the mail to your parents home tomorrow @bnbdesigns 3d
  •   bnbdesigns I know!! So weird it was like disappeared for two days on the tracking website! I can send this one back when I get back from vacation. I will email you my parents address. I was just so stoked to sew those fabrics in the country! Lol. 3d
  •   bnbdesigns Ok emailed the shop@Westwood 3d
  •   acraftyfox_amanda @bnbdesigns k, I'll keep an eye on that tracking, but if it isn't delivered before 5, we'll just send you one to the new address 3d

acraftyfox_amanda I haven't hosted a #finishitfriday giveaway for the last few weeks because #sewvivor has demanded so much of my attention. But I miss seeing all of your amazing creations! So, this week we will pick three Finish It Friday winners! Everyone will get TWO chances to win! To enter: your first entry needs to be a picture of the project you hope to finish in its current, unfinished state. Only pictures taken AFTER this one qualify as entries. I'd love to hear how long you've been working on it. Make sure to tag me @acraftyfox_amanda and use the #finishitfriday (hint, tap that hashtag once before you use it and it will auto populate when you go to use it) SECOND entry is your finished project! Make sure to use the same tags and hashtags so I can find your entries :) you can find me trying to put together my #floweringsnowballalong, and I'll hopefully have this quilt top done by Monday! 5d

acraftyfox_amanda These two collections look like they were made to go with each other! Today's fabric mix is @sewsweetness Jungle Ave and Lecien's first of infinity. These would make a very fun quilt! Anyone have a pattern suggestion? 6d

acraftyfox_amanda The girls in my shop have been smitten by @cluckclucksew's new wallflowers collection. So I had to see how it would look as a #minidazzlequilt. I would say it's doing smashing! Also, last call for votes for my #sewvivor entry. I hate to beg, but pretty please? Sewing under a deadline is my happy place and I'd love the chance to do it just one more time! You can vote over on the @familyeverafter blog! Thank you all so much for your support! 7d

acraftyfox_amanda Today's fabric combination is going to be Denyse Schmidt's Hadley bundle combined with #cottonandsteel blank canvas and Splash and our newest low volume text bundle. I love how these are playing together! (All are available in our little shop westwoodacresfabric.com) 7d

I'll send this pouch and the pile of scraps from my #dazzlequilt to one lucky winner. To enter, leave me a comment below saying something nice about someone you don't talk to very often. Someone who might be surprised you're thinking of them. Make their day. I'll pick a winner hafter my husband and My birthday/anniversary/birthday dinner tonight. Have fun and spread the love! 1w

acraftyfox_amanda Since this quilt is going to live on my bed, I wanted the details to be perfect. So each corner is rounded and finished in bias binding. It's the little things, right? 1w

acraftyfox_amanda Will you forgive me if I overgram this quilt today? I'm smitten with it! I've named it Dazzle (short for Razzle Dazzle) It's my round 3 #sewvivor entry but I'm going to love it long after the competition is over. It's true love! (if you'd like to vote for me, the link is in @familyeverafter's profile.) thank you all for voting for me and getting me this far! 1w
