Friday Fun Day...let's have a party (and a giveaway)

Hi Everyone,

Sorry I have been so quiet this week. Working on a project that needs to be finished up by Monday and it is keeping my nose to the grindstone.


A little sneak peek of one of the other new lines that is coming in...eventually.

I am a little bummed that my new fabrics haven't arrived yet for the shop so let's have a party to cheer me up. This is my 190th blog post just ten more to go until I hit 200... probably take about 3 weeks. You know me if I am celebrating you are winning something... so between now and the big #200 let me know what you would like me to give away from my store (you can choose from the coming soon fabrics on the website as well). I will pick a few of the suggestions and one of the commentors on my 200th post will get a nice prize package. For the people that make the suggestions that I pick... you will also get whatever you suggested. So there will be multiple prizes.

Rules: (comments for this will be open until next Friday night at midnight)

1. Make one comment with a suggestion for the prize pack, choose from the fabrics already in my shop and/or the fabrics on my coming soon page on my website.

That's it... whoever's suggestions that I pick (sorry this isn't a random drawing it is subjective) will win what they suggested... so pick stuff you really like :)

  3. Well, I don't normally enter these with you cause I want others to win, but I am drooling over the new Joel Dewberry line in the teal and lavendar colors - I think ;). I wanted a fat quarter bundle to play with, so I am waiting for you to get some in the shop!
    Love working with you!!

  21. well at first I was going to say Happier Gardens because it just makes me happy but then I saw this line...April Kumari Garden By Dena Fishbein ....and I just have to have it. Why you ask....when my grandfather died when I was 4 I was told that a beautiful butterfly hung around the entire funeral. When my grandmother died 4 years ago...what hung around with us at the funeral...a beautiful orange butterfly. So I have always felt that they were watching us....and when I saw this butterfly fabric I new I must have it. I will somehow or another make a quilt in rememberance of my granparents :)

  22. I would love the giveaway to be Happier Cottons - Green Fat Quarter Bundle -by Deena Rutter for Riley Blake Designs 8 Fat Quarters. Such adorable fabrics and in my favorite colorway!!

    ReplyDelete
  23. happier cottons charm pack would be my choice. Looks like a fun line of fabrics and a charm pack is a great way to play with the whole line

    ReplyDelete
  24. I think your giveaway has to be some Silent Cinema by Jenean Morrison. It is so gorgeous. Would a fat quarter bundle be too extravagant?

    ReplyDelete
  25. I love the Happier fat quarter bundle in the oranges and pinks - just beautiful!! I'm loving orange these days....

    ReplyDelete
  26. I am in love with the Sugar and Spice fabrics, so my suggestion would be a half yard bundle of either the blues or the reds. :-) Congrats on almost 200 posts!

    ReplyDelete
  27. I like that fabric on your blog with the owls! I was looking for a Riley Blake owl line for my grand daughter's quilt.

    ReplyDelete
  28. As soon as i saw April Kumari Garden - wow that is what I would love the most - to make a quilt for my sis in law - she could use some cheering up and loves butterflies. The red/pink/yellow color line is wonderful! thanks for such fun!

    ReplyDelete
  29. Aviary 2 - a bundle of the 8 on order. I like the lilac, green, aqua combo.

    ReplyDelete
  30. I like the Impressions by Ty Pennington line. I'd love a 1/2 yard bundle of that to play with. A charm pack of it would be nice too.

    ReplyDelete
  31. 1/2 yard bundle of Kumari Garden, either colourway... both are delicious

    ReplyDelete
  32. What a great idea for a giveaway! I would love a fat quarter or half yard (even better) bundle of Kumari Garden Holiday - just gorgeous!

    ReplyDelete
  33. I think the Happier Cottons (blue FQ bundle is sooo pretty. If I won that I would not be feeling blue! :0)

    Congrats on almost 200 posts!

  35. I was looking around your shop and then through the comments and it seems everyone has a different opinion about what they want so why not give away one of your "build your own 8 FQ bundles" I think this is a great idea! The bottom line for me is that you are generous and we all appreciate that!!!

    ReplyDelete
  36. My choice is from the Happier line. Looking at the existing orange 8 fat quarter bundle you have out there, Id build a 5 half yard bundle out of (from top to bottom) fabric 1 (white bkgrd), fabric 2 (orange bkgrd), fabric 4(orange on orange circles), fabric 6 (birds on white bkgrd) and fabric 7(striped)

    ReplyDelete
  37. Don't be sad - it will all come in soon and then it will be like Christmas - only you will be selling it, but that is cool to =P
    I already bought from you Happier in Green and I love it, and it arrived so fast, I could not be happier!
    I would love to win some Sugar and Spice, it is so pretty.
    Cheers,
    Carolyn

  38. I think you should give away a bundle of Happier. It looks so wonderful!!

  39. I just love all the tone on tone Sugar and Spice fabrics.

  40. I would love to win the red and blue fat quarter bundle of sugar and spice. It would make a perfect set of stacked coins quilts for my two little cousins. They were born in July and love all things red white and blue. With this set they could have similar but not matching presents.

    ReplyDelete
  41. I would have to say a 1/2 yd bundle of either happier or 1001 Peeps, that is coming soon. I have a new, one and only granddaughter who is 8 months old and we're looking at redoing her bedroom into something a little brighter and girly, since it's very generic in nature. Either of these would be wonderful for her!

  42. Would love to see the Kumari Garden in a giveaway for your 200th blog entry. I also love the Blue and Red Spice collections. Lots of beautiful choices all around.

    ReplyDelete
  43. Wow, how fun to get to pick what you like. I just love the Kumari Garden Holiday prints in your coming soon line!!! They are stunning!!! I just love those pinks and greens!!! I especially love the 2nd and 3rd prints in the forth row. They are just stunning!!

    ReplyDelete
  44. I love this selection:
    Sugar and Spice - Blue Half Yard Bundle Sugar and Spice by The Quilted Fish for Riley Blake.
    I have a Sugar and Spice layer cake and would love some of this blue colorway yardage to go with it.

    ReplyDelete
  45. I'm not real thrilled with the coming soon fabrics - the prints are too specific for me! I'm really liking Happier Cottons by Deena Rutler for Riley Blake. You don't see nice collections in greens very often so I'm loving the green colorway. Very Springy too.

    ReplyDelete
  46. I love the Happier Cottons FQ bundle. Those greens are yummy.

    ReplyDelete
  47. I would love to win a FQ bundle of the Silent Cinema by Jenean Morrison for Free Spirit. They are gorgeous!!!=) Thanks for the opportunity to win. Crossing my fingers that you think my suggestion is the right one.;-)

    ReplyDelete
  48. Oh My Gosh! This giveaway is too good to be true! I can't believe it! You sure know how to make us happy so with that in mind I would love, love, love to win the Happier Cottons - Blue Half Yard Bundle. And if you think that is too much I would happily go with the Fat Quarter bundle! Thank you!

    ReplyDelete
  49. Great giveaway! I would choose Happier cottons, blue 1/2 yard bundle. I love the green also!

    ReplyDelete
  50. Happier in the fq bundle that has the orange in it -- yumm-o! Great colors for summer :-)

    ReplyDelete
  51. ohgoodgolly! I didn't know you carried so many supercool designs! I think you should choose Happier Cottons - Green Floral SKU C5503...it's so brilliantly cheery and Springtimey! Cheers!

    ReplyDelete
  52. The Happier Cottons Charm Pack caught my eye; along with a few coordinated "blenders", that would be a lovely prize. Of course, everyone loves FQ bundles too or 3 half-yard cuts.
    Silent Cinema is lovely, with a touch of 'sophistication' to the prints. You couldn't go wrong with either line-I know that I would be very pleased to win the fabrics you carry. Thanks very much.

    ReplyDelete
  53. It's very hard to choose between Happier - green and Sugar and Spice - red! Thanks for the great giveaway.

    ReplyDelete
  54. I am loving the vibrant colors and patterns of the Dazzle By Melissa Averinos for Andover Fabrics that is coming soon. The teals & blues are my colors and mixed with orange, grey & purple is something totally different. Thanks for a chance to suggest some fabric & a chance to win! :)

    ReplyDelete
  55. I love it all. How can I pick..... But I love all of the Sugar & Spice and I think that's what's calling my name.

    ReplyDelete
  56. I think a Build Your Own bundle of 6 FQs would be great!

    ReplyDelete
  57. I'm not sure what that adorable fabric is that you are showing at the top of this post, but I LOVE IT! I would just stop right there, if it were me. Is that Happier? Well, I'm happier already.

    Thanks for the chance to win! Great giveaway!

    ReplyDelete
  58. I'm a little in love with the owls on the top of the page:) Thanks

    ReplyDelete
  59. I'd love to use my winnings for my SWAP blocks - fab way to promote the giveaway! and of course I'll keep some scraps for my hexis, my applique (it stilll a secret that I've started a BOM) and am using tiny weeny bits of leftover fabrics too... that Mum an baby OWL will be priceless...

  60. I'd say the Red FQ bundle of Sugar & Spice. :) I love red.

    ReplyDelete
  61. In your store right now, I like the Happier bundle in orange--I have no idea why because I usually don't like orange but this is so enticing! That's my pick!

    (p.s. I like the upcoming Hoo's In The Forest by Doohikey Designs for Riley Blake Designs. It has a 'japanese' feel to it, but then there's plaids--nice! I'm interested to see what people do with this line!)
