So, here it is... my online shop.
You'll find fat quarters of my original Cheater Friday print from Spoonflower, some jewelry (I'll save that for another post), and a couple of quilts. I don't think I ever blogged that my Cheater Friday fabric was the #6 bestseller on Spoonflower in 2010. Um, wow! I was so excited!
I recently changed the pink and red in the Cheater Friday print to get it closer to my original vision. Fat quarters of the original print are available now in the shop for $8.00. I've ordered some of the new version too (above) and I'll add it to the shop soon. Those fat quarters will be $10.00.
To celebrate me giving up on perfection (in this case) and jumping in, let's do a little giveaway.
I've got about 45, 2.5" squares from the original Cheater Friday
print ready to become 1" hexagons.
Want them?Leave a comment below.
I'd love a chance to win them...having just started a hexagon quilt recently...they'll be perfect.
That is just so beautiful! I love the colors! I think you did a fantastic job! :)
Very pretty, congratulations and thanks for the chance!
Very neat! Would love to win the squares!
Cute! I have been meaning to try smaller hexagons... right now I am working with 4.5 inch ones.
OOOH! I would love those squares for my hexagon quilt. My fingers are crossed!
Good for you! The quest for perfection usually means it just never ends up happening. I'm glad you conquered that demon! Good luck with your new shop!

Congratulations! The fabric is just gorgeous! Would love to win... :)
What fun prints, and all on the same fabric! Brilliant! Congratulations on its popularity--I can see why! :)
I would love them. I'm now in the process of cutting a lot of my scraps and stash into 2 1/2-inch squares and hoping to make some kind of nine-patch.
Good for you for just diving in!! Sometimes that's what it takes to get the ball really rolling. I wish I could think of more cliches to use in my comment, lol, but I guess that's just the way the cookie crumbles ...
These squares are so fun, they make me happy. I hope I win.
Oh you bet I want 'em! Congratulations on your store! I think sometimes jumping in is the only way to get anything accomplished -- I can put things off forever if I start thinking too much!
beautiful! yes please!!
What fun fabric! I'd love to win it!
Thanks for the chance to win I would love to put those fabrics in my hexagon quilt they are gorgeous.
I so remember the cheater fabric!! I think they did a contest right? If so, I did vote for you...If not, I voted for someone, but could swear it was you!! The only thing I don't like about Spoonflower is that it really is a little pricey....I love FQ's but 8-10 is a little rich for a SAHM...but don't get me wrong your cheater fabric roCKS!!
Awesome! I love these prints, any thoughts about making full yards available of specific prints?
Congratulations! You know what the author, Annie Lamott says: "Perfectionism is the tool of the oppressor". Would love to win and thanks for the inspiration. tut
I love the colors in those fabrics; they would make great hexagons.
Congrats on your new shop!
they look delish (as thoroughly modern millie would say). Would love to start hexies with all those cuties. email@example.com
Wow, so inspiring! Love the fabrics.
Beautiful fabric! I would love to add these fabrics to my hexie quilt.
I just recently discovered hexagons, and I would love to have them to add to the dozen I've made. Love your fabric. Thanks so much for the giveaway.
So yummy fabrics! And already cut to be hexies? I'm in! :)))
Thanks for the opportunity to win such a cool prize Melanie!
Congrats on the spoonflower success! That's brilliant. And thanks for the chance to win some of your lovely fabric design.

Oooh yes please! I loved this fabric so much I got myself some from Spoonflower! But hey more is always good ;-)
I absolutely LOVE your cheater print! It's such a great way to get a huge variety of prints for hexagons...no wonder it made the bestseller list.

Gorgeous Fabrics!! Would love to own them! Tks fr the chance xoxo
I've never made hexagons but have been wanting to give them a try. What better fabric to use than your vibrant florals? Thanks for the giveaway!
Oh I love those! I am not surprised those are so popular on Spoonflower - pretty!
I was wondering what happened to your cheater print...the one we voted on over at spoonflower. I would love to win these squares! Thanks for a chance!
Thanks for the chance to win your squares. I am so ready to work on bright colors to get me away from looking at snow and ice for so long.
Wow, thanks for the giveaway! I remember voting for that print and being glad it won! :) Those squares are so bright and cute!
My hexagon progress has slowed to a stop
I need something to start it up again
thanks for entering me in your giveaway
Very cool! It's awesome fabric, and how exciting to have so many people love it, too! Thank you for the chance to win some, and good luck with your new shop.
Love the colors! I'm making new quilts for my grandkids and they would really spice things up! Thanks for the chance to win!

Congratulations on the new shop, and thanks for the chance to win these lovely squares!
Yes, i want them. Thank you for your generousity.
#6?!? That's amazing! Congratulations!
Sometimes you just have to jump in! After visiting your blog a while back, I finally jumped in and started making my first hexagons - using fabric that I'd been "saving" for the "perfect" project. I decided that it was better to use it for something now that the possibility that it will never get used. So, see you inspired me to jump in without even knowing it!
Love the fabric! Hope that I will win. Thanks for the chance.
I would sew love to win!...These darling little squares are just the right size and would be so perfect to add to my hexies!
Pick me! Pick me!
You've done my least favorite step for me! The cutting, ugh I hate the cutting!!
YES YES YES!! I just got into English paper piecing (I KNOW! I missed the boat) and would LOOVE to have theses cuties to help me on my new journey!
Lovely! Thanks for a chance to win.
Very colorful designs, great inspiration !
Yes, I want it. Greetings from Slovakia.
Blogger crashed on me so hope this is not a duplicate comment. When you first announced your cheater cloth on the blog, I checked it out on Spoonflower. It was indeed the best entry (in my opinion). I am now making my first ever hexies, and your small squares would be perfect to use in my (hopefully) bed-sized quilt. Congratulations on your new shop.
That fabric is totally adorable. Congrats on breaking the top 10!
I'm so into hexies lately that my husband thinks I'm crazy. I'd love that beautiful collection of squares. Thanks for sharing!
Love the colors, and all the fun prints, very quick way to make hexagons! Thanks for the chance to win!
The perfect way for me to try out hexies! Love the bright colours!
I'd love to win the squares as I am about 100 short for my hexagon quilt.
I'd love to have these to start a new quilt with - they'd be just wonderful. dmj53 at hotmail dot com
What a coincidence because today I took out my pre cut paper backing papers and starting preparing some hexagons and blogged about it too!
The fabric is perfect for hexagons. I would love to win.
Congrats on the new shop!!!!
Yes please! This fabric is beautiful! Thanks for the great giveaway!

What lovely fabric! Have never made hexagons before, but I feel like this would be a beautiful way to start!
Also for abroad readers (I'm in France) ? This fabric is a wonderful help for "patchwork" : just sew on the lines ! 8-)) It would be a very inspiring gift ...
Nothing 'cheater' about it ---- just plain cute!
they're so pretty! love the colors. i'm doing 1.5" hexies so they probably wouldn't work for that but i can think of 1 million other things i would use them for!
And by the way I would love to win the squares! I love your fabric!!!
Wnat them? Are you silly....? I'd LOVE them - and I promise they'll be made into a quilt and enjoyed :-)

I've looked at your cheater print many times on Spoonflower... but it would be even nicer to win it:) I remember voting for you last year on Spoonflower, too. Where does the time go?
Good luck on opening your new shop.
Love your blog!
Want them?? Oh yeah!! I can't imagine giving them away. What a fun contest! The fabric is beautiful. Love the cheater quilt too. It's super cute. We're in Houston and so far, no snow, only ice. I did stay inside today and work on an eye spy quilt with some old, old fabric I had.
Congrats on taking the dive into the pond and going live with your store. Although it's a scarey step, thank you for sharing your talent with the world :)

Hi there. New visitor and new follower. Love your Cheater Friday print! Would love to make something pretty out of those squares, maybe even daring to make hexagons! :D Will browse more and so your other goodies.
I adore your cheater fabric - I bought a FQ and then a metre from spoonflower for hexagons but just had to use it for a WIP quilt for me - I loved it so much -
So, I really need some squares for hexies! LOL - thanks for the chance and best of luck in your new shop!
Would love to try hexagons!
Love your blog and your quilts
I would love to WIN ! I will definately check out your shop !
Love the fabric !
Just found out my youngest is expecting our first grandbaby - and she is carrying three! I see lots of baby quilts in my future - your prints would be wonderfully bright and modern - just the right touch.
They look so cute :) And I love how some of them look like they already have quilting/stitching on them !!
Oh hey, it's you! I've oogled that print on Spoonflower.
I'd love a chance to win! The colors are so bright during these dreary days in Georgia.
Love your fabric and would love to win my first blog drawing!
I haven't done much work on my hexagon quilt because I have cut through my whole stash! This addition would be perfect and get me 4% closer to my goal! :)
Your fabric is gorgeous. No wonder it was a best seller last year.
I like the Zac Brown band and Chicken Fried is a favorite song.
I can see why it is a bestseller......................!
Would love to win a bit....for my hexie obssession. Thanks
BEAUTIFUL FABRIC!!! The cheery/brighter the better. Like they say the hardest part is to take the first step. You are so brave!! Good Job!!
Great fabric and congrats on getting you online store going and good luck with it.
Better finished than perfect. That's my motto.
Love your blog! Love that fabric! Had to buy a FQ - yardage was already sold out. Can't wait to get it. I'm just down I-20 from you. Soooo sick of this weather. I think more is coming from what I hear.
WOW, this is my first ever blog comment! Maybe it'll be lucky.
I would love to win this fabric, it would be great to start my mini travelling hexagons and I love the idea that they'd come from Texas...we are having a holiday to Texas from Melbourne in July!
from Melanie (another coincidence!)
Oh, how fun!
This fabric is so delightful! And congrats on the new web store...it looks great!
