Blue FQ from LoveCrafts

A few weeks ago I was contacted by LoveCrafts to see if I would do a review of something “quilty” for them.  Of course, I said yes! I have ordered yarn from them, but not any quilting items. They are just beginning to branch out into quilting, so it will be interesting to see how they differentiate themselves from other vendors. This lovely package arrived in the mail….now what’s not to like about this pretty in pink bag?

Inside was another pretty pink bag. It was all packaged very well. I know when I mail fabric, I often put it in another bag to be sure that if something happens it won’t get wet.

But before we move on you may want to know a little more about the company.

Knitting yarn, patterns, needles, crochet accessories, hooks, craft books and kits, you name it, you’ll find it. You can shop all the craft materials you need to start your next project. We ship worldwide (yippee!) and have dedicated websites for the UK, US, and Germany. Plus, our friendly customer service team, Smiles, are on hand to make your experience smooth and smiley every make of the way!”


I love this packet of blues. The fabrics almost read solid, it has a nice hand and the variations in tone and pattern are lovely. I believe their pricing is quite competitive. I looked at Hancock’s and Fat Quarter shop for comparison of fabrics from Windham; LoveCrafts was cheaper than both the other companies.

I did become an affiliate* so you can use this link to purchase from them and I will get a little help supporting my website at no extra cost. I will always have a link at either the bottom or right hand side of my page. I believe in truth in advertising; I am not in love with the shipping. I have mentioned it to LoveCrafts so it will be a watch and see what happens. Right now, the service they use seems to miss a day or two of updating it so it takes longer than I would expect. I did not pay for expedited delivery, just their regular shipping so do be aware of it. I expect it went ground and this is always so slow for me. Note: another friend received hers very quickly so it may have been a glitch.

I can’t wait to play with this group and think it may be the basis for my Winter Blues project.  Don’t ask me what that it yet, because I don’t know, but I will!    If you want this exact bundle, there were 4 available at this link for $19.90 yesterday afternoon.

I will pop in 3 more times right around or before the end of the year: 1) 2019 review and 2020 goals, 2) finish for December and 3) 5 Best of 2019. Have a wonderful New Year and look forward to your comments and following your projects as the new year begins!

    Glad you received your fabric too. Mine came really fast, I think I know what I am going to make but not sure what it will look like in the end.

      Hmmm. I bet you are closer to the warehouse! I will put a note that another person had an easier time.

    Love that bundle. Blues must be in the air. I just got a Breeze FQ bundle by Bridgitte Heitland for ZenChic. Looking forward to your Blues project.

    Hi Kathleen! Thanks for the link – I will check them out for sure. When I saw your photo of those pretty blues I immediately thought of the Winter Blues blog hop. It also makes me want to make something for my sister – she adores ALL things blue. Hmm. I’ll have to start thinking about something fun for her. ~smile~ Roseanne

      I know how lucky was I to get blue! I love blue and have a thought or two about what I might do for the January hop. Are you hopping too? I hope you get a great idea for your sister
