Treasure Bay Fabrics

Firstly a big thank you to Heather and Megan over on Quiltstory who had a block competition a couple of weeks ago where my orange spiral block won me a gift voucher for Treasure Bay Fabrics.  Run by Melissa, a red headed stay at home mum and avid crafter, her shop features an eclectic variety of fun, whimsical and modern designer cotton prints from FreeSpirit, Robert Kaufman, Michael Miller, Kokka, Andover, Timeless Treasures, Alexander Henry and many more.


Go here for Melissa's Etsy shop, here for her Facebook page and here for her blog.  Her goals for this year are to increase turnover to make the shop more able to compete with the big retailers and possibly even to expand into a bricks and mortar shop.  New in are some Hokkoh fabrics from Lecien as well as some Hello Kitty fabrics and Melissa makes up some lovely fabric bundles with these.  



The bundle I chose was this beautiful Innocent Crush half yard selection.  Thank you so much, Melissa.  It arrived yesterday and the fabrics are more gorgeous in real life than in pictures - I will let you know what I make with it!


And thank you to each and every one of you who took the time to stop by yesterday and wish me a happy quiltaversary and make me laugh and smile at your comments - my kids are off school this week so, if I don't thank each of you individually, I apologise - but four kids sometimes won't leave you in the kind of peace you need as a quilter and quiltblogger!

  13. I'll check out the stop--that first bundle has some cool fabrics, and my 4-year-old granddaughter is totally in to Hello Kitty. Isn't that funny? Hello Kitty has been around forever, it seems...
