Fat Eighths Bundles are new from Moda.  Each bundle has all the different fabrics in the collection, just like the fat quarter bundles, only they are 9" x 22".   When I think about the the Fat 8 bundle compared to the 10" square Layer Cakes - it is about twice as much fabric!!

The following bundles are available at Alaska Quilting Adventures:

New Arrival ~ Pure by Sweetwater

Pure, the new collection from Sweetwater from Moda is purely perfect!!  Love, love, love it! 

Love the color combinations of blue, brown, and white. 

Love the wording and the sentiment.

  Love the modern style.

Love the Argyle!!!!

Love the cleaver names for the colors ~ splash is blue, craft is a light brown like craft paper, cocoa is a rich dark brown, natural is cream. 

We have 15 different bolts of fabrics!  Pre-cuts include jelly rolls, layer cakes, charm packs and fat quarter bundles. 

I can see this fabric in so many different ways, not just quilts ~ aprons, pillows, placemats, table runners, totes and handbags.  Would also make a modern baby boy fabric.  What will you make?

We Ship Worldwide

It has been an interesting week at Alaska Quilting Adventures.  I am always fascinated by the different places we ship to, and this week we had a number of orders for right here in Alaska - Iliamna, Fairbanks, Gustavus, and even locally in Peter's Creek.   We have a number of lovely customers in Canada, Australia and the UK, but this week we have also sent fabrics to China, Norway and the Netherlands!  No matter where they may be located, quilters, sewers and crafters are simply the nicest people!!!   Thank-you for your continuing support!! 

Here in Alaska autumn is definitely upon us!!!  The leaves are turning quick, and it won't be long before the termination dust arrives.  (That's what they call the first snow on the mountain tops.)  Even though I'm pretty busy with Alaska Quilting Adventures and my customers, I have pulled out my own sewing machine and started a new project.  I think it is going to be a rough winter!  I have a bet with my husband that we will have snow fall before the last day of September - I'll keep you posted on that one!

Under Construction ~ Store Upgrades

I've made a big decision!  Over the next few weeks I will be upgrading my store and listings using templates that allow me to personalize each listing.  I have always liked to keep my listings "clean and simple", but I see the advantage of being able to add information like; shipping details, terms of sale, about us, and how to contact us.  So, besides being more attractive, my new listings will be more informative.  Alaska Quilting Adventures first started selling November 2007, so as we come up on our third anniversay I feel the time is right.  However, with almost 800 products listed, and new shipments coming in regularly, this is not only a big decision, but a large undertaking.  

In the meantime, some of Alaska Quilting Adventures listings will be in our old format while the new listings will be using templates.  That will not effect your ability to shop our entire store for your selections.  I'm not sure how long it will take me to convert all my listings over to the new format, so consider AQA "under construction."
