WICKED theme for 2014....BLACK CAT Crossing with Maywood Blog HOP

 It is that time of year again...WICKED ....and this year our theme will be BLACK CAT CROSSING with Maywood Studio......This collection has soooo much diversity, so much colour, so many possibilities...and so many skus....37 and  (  add a panel and border too)

Wicked WENDY will be cheering us all on again...This will be her 3rd year at grooming us into Wicked Land..She does it all with such wickedness and she brews up many adventurous dishes...

Soooo if you are STRETCHED  at all.. Please let us know....I have  some 8 - 1/2 yards( variety to be sent out)  to some of our very active participants of our hops...Those who create exciting projects time and time again, whose photos are PURRFect....welllll--- you all will be considered....

Each blog hop brings you closer to be basked in the warmth of some FREE bundles...This so benefits the companies much more than just giveaways...This way they get to see a project completed with their COLLECTION and the best news for you are rewarded in upcoming hops because they GET results which affects their bottom line  so they provide even more FABRIC......SEEEE everyone WINS! ( perhaps you were wondering what I do in my downtime...I negotiate all these hops for YOU) 

Let's take a peak  at Maywood Studio....BLACK CAT Crossing collection.....

  5. Wow! This is lovely could you possibly choose a favourite from this collection? Oh, and my favrourite cats are black cats, though I've never had a solid black one yet, but I keep looking!

  6. Oh, I love Maywood studio fabrics! I am not much into Halloween, but these fabrics are nice. I especially like the stars. Thanks Samm, for all you do behind the scenes.

  7. Yummy fabric! That fabric would be so fun to work with!

  8. Very Wicked fabric line. Should be another fun adventure.

  9. Oh I love Halloween Samm....but as much as I love it I'm going to have to pass on this one. :( We're going to be traveling again in late September (Colorado Rockies just seem to call my name!) and in October we have our 50th anniversary celebration plus my 50th high school reunion. I'm afraid I couldn't do justice to this project but I'll be back on target and ready for the next hop! blessings, marlene

  10. What fun fabric!! I do so wish I had a budget to buy some of this collection, but since we just bought a house, more fabric is out of the question. I appreciate that I can still participate, though! Thank you, thank you for setting up the hops and getting sponsers - you are amazing :)

  11. Awww, you know nothing makes my heart sing louder than seeing the witch hat appear on your blog header. Could it be cause it rings so true with me! LOL! Black Cat Crossing is just about the greatest fabric I've seen yet. Gorgeous colors and so many different fabrics. Choices, choices. Yummmmm

  33. Hope I'm not to late to the party. I just sent Wendy an email.

  34. Oh my More STARS ! That is cute fabric ! I must get in this one ! And what a cute blog button you made for the hop !

  35. You can\t get too much of a good thing, and Wicked is the Best! Love the gorgeous fabrics this year. Can't wait to see what you have in store!

  36. Oh I hate to miss out on this one as you probably guess since I love Halloween but I have too much on my plate and alas have to pass. I will be following this one with great interest though.

  37. I absolutely love, love, love Halloween and Halloween fabrics. This selection is so sophisticated and I have to get some!!!! Can you tell me where I can purchase it online or better still anywhere in Canada? The postal here is just horrible so expensive so if I can purchase it here, less postage and more fabric. Thank you so much for sharing your talent. I cannot wait to see what you will come up with this time??

    1. Hi Chloe I never ever purchase fabric in Canada….and I live here…I always purchase from the US and even with shipping it is still much cheaper than here..
      I don’t I have ever paid more than 10.00 to ship 4-5 yds of I am not sure who has it here…I usually get the fabric of 9-10.oo a yard vs 18.-20.00 for the same.. ( you are a no reply blogger, so hopefully you see this here)

  38. Still room for one more? Sent my note off to Wendy to see.

  39. Hi, I'm have a quilt blog and will be putting your Black Cat Crossing on my blog page. As a quilt blogger, is there a way I can help with this blog hop or participate? I've been looking for a fun quilting blog hop to participate in. Barb

  40. Dear Samm,
