Welcome IAQ friends!

Welcome IAQ Friends!  I’m so happy you’re stopping by on your Scavenger Hunt and I hope you’re enjoying this month’s Moonflower Mini project!

For those of you who don’t know me, my name is Shelley Cavanna, owner of Cora’s Quilts pattern company and fabric designer for Contempo by Benartex.  I make my home just outside Sacramento, CA, right near the base of the Sierra Nevadas, with my husband and our two boys, ages 4.5 and 6.  I am a self-taught quilter and I’ve been quilting for about 11 years and publishing my own patterns for 8 years.

I hope you’ll take a few minutes to poke around our website, and check out our patterns and kits. Here are a few fun things going on in my little corner of the universe right now.

New Fabric!

My brand new fabric collection, Gloaming, just hit shops this week … and Benartex is celebrating with a blog hop!  Several of my quilty friends have made some fantastic projects with prints from the collection and each blog or Instagram stop has fabric to give away this week! Plus, we’ll share a free pattern and host a pattern giveaway on Friday, 3/10/18.
