To help celebrate, my sponsor Fat Quarter Shop is offering up two fat quarter bundles featuring prints and solids from the Fanfare 2014 collection.

The Pomp Bundle includes 10 fat quarters in the quieter colorways from the line.

Alexia wore her amazing knit Lela Tunic at Quilt Market last fall. Here she is with Michelle (who’s wearing another one of their patterns, the Frances dress):

Lela can be made as a tunic or blouse, and works best in lightweight, flowy fabrics. Devon of Miss Make made this lovely version:

I actually just cut out some fabric for my own Lela Blouse; I’m thinking color block for this one. Progress photos forthcoming.
