Look who's Two!

I just do not know where the time goes! Featherweight Quilt Company just turned two! Woohoo!
It has been so much fun sharing my love and passion for all things English Paper Pieced and most especially Patchwork of the Crosses! The above block was my first Patchwork of the Crosses block and I designed it especially to celebrate Easter! It is still one of my favorite blocks! And I am temporarily offering this block kit in my ETSY shop, Featherweight Quilt company for a limited time.

  I also have a few new products. I am really excited about my Mini Charm Hexagon Gift Sets!

Aren't these just too cute? I love using Mini Charms for English Paper Piecing Hexagons and I paired them up with an adorable little hinged tin from Moda! Sew cute! And these make adorable gifts for all of your favorite sewing and crafty friends!

We have so many Gift sets to choose from:
Sunflower Song
Mille Colours and
just to name a few!

  1. Congratulations, Your Patchwork Crosses is a beautiful pattern. I entered your giveaway, thank you for the chance to win during your celebration. I have tried to note your link up for May 7th.
