Another Happy Blog Hopping Day!

Hey everyone!  I'm so glad you stopped by.  I am pretty excited to have been included in this blog hop celebrating such a great accomplishment and company Jaftex Corp.  Jaftex is a parent company of Henry Glass, Blank Quilting Corp., and Studioe Fabrics, which supplies us with high quality, beautiful
fabric!  I don't know about you, but I love a great piece of fabric!

Jaftex History:
Jaftex Corp. was founded in the 1930’s when Jacob A. Fortunoff started selling fabric on the streets of New York.  At that time, the mainstay of the business was women’s sleepwear and lingerie.  In the 80’s, Jacob’s grandson, Robert, dramatically changed the business of the company.  The business focus was transferred to the over the counter quilt industry when Robert purchased companies like A.E. Nathan, Henry Glass, Stylemaker, Chanteclaire, Fabric Editions/Studioe and more recently The Blank Quilting Corp.  Robert is now joined by his two sons, Scott and Greg.  

I used the Folio Collection for this tote to organize all my important, can't live without, stuff!  I have to admit, I really like how it turned out.










Don't forget to enter to win here (with a comment)  as well for a chance to win this beautiful Folio fat quarter bundle.

If you get a minute, check out my new line of fabric #laughlovequilt along my side bar.  It will be arriving in quilt shops this November!


A big thank you to our amazing sponsors!


Have fun hopping around!
