Fabric Friday and the Giveaway

Hey Everyone,

Pacific International Quilt Festival is happening this weekend just about 5 miles from my shop. It has been fun and oh so busy the last few days. I get to sneak out and see the show this morning for a couple hours with some friends. I can't wait!

So what came into the shop this week? Something you all have been really excited for Terra Australis 2:



These prints make me so happy... they are bright and fun and make me want to take a trip to Australia. Hey Aussie friends can I come see you?

Did you see the Newsletter this week? It is a really good one if I do say so myself. Have a look.

If you are local we have a class with Lizzy House coming up on November 3rd we are keeping enrollments on the small side so that everyone has plenty of room to work. So if you want to come get your name in quickly. We will be making The Meadow quilt which Lizzy will not be making a pattern for. The only way to make it is to take her class. It is the one behind her in this picture:




We also got in the pattern for Modern Building Blocks I ordered it months ago but it just arrived yesterday. I am sure you have seen these all over the web people using their own scraps or what have you. This will be our Giveaway this week.


To win your own copy of the Modern Building Blocks pattern. Leave a comment telling me what fabric you would like to use to make it with. Oh thinking about it... wouldn't it be great in Terra Australis 2? Hmmm got my thinking cap on :) I will pick a winner next Friday... but I will be on a plane to Houston for Market so forgive me if I don't post until Saturday morning.

Have a super weekend!

    ReplyDelete
  56. I have a bazillion scraps but I have found myself stepping waayyyy out of my usual colorways lately by using black, gray, yellows and oranges. Soooo....it seems that Terra Australis 2 has dropped into your store at just the right time. Imagine that!!! lol I would use the orange and black colorway and some Kona solids. Enjoy market and bring home lots of goodies.

    ReplyDelete

  74. Terra Australis of course. I have loved this fabric line ever since I saw the first line and wanted an excuse to buy some. I've seen a local Australian designer make a Thimbleblossom pattern using Terra Australis 2 and have been hankering to use it - I love the kangaroos and geckos!

    ReplyDelete
  99. I would love to make this in some of the Art Gallery Pure Elements solids - the colours are just gorgeous!

  100. I think this would be beautiful in shot cottons. Or perhaps that Joel Dewberry fq pack that I have in oranges and pinks, with a bit of Aqua thrown in.

    ReplyDelete
  101. i Think i would pull fabrics from my stash and go rainbow scrappy.

    ReplyDelete
  102. I've been wanting to do a quilt in solids for quite some time so my choice is Kona!

    KaliaContiki@gmail.com

    ReplyDelete
  104. I have a baskets of batiks that I haven't cut into in over a year ago. I think they would work great!

    ReplyDelete
  108. I think Elementary by Moda would be pretty!

    Susie

    ReplyDelete
  109. A couple different collections come to mind, but each would have to have an additional dose of solids thrown in, don't you think? Figures by Zen Chic, or Modern Neutrals by Amy Ellis, just for starters :)

    ReplyDelete
  110. I think it would look good done in Somerset by Fig Tree & Co.
    jen dot barnard at btinternet dot com

    ReplyDelete
  111. It would look great in Daysail, with a few scraps of previous B&C lines thrown in too!

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  121. I have a stash of Terrain by Kate Spain which I think would look marvelous made up in this awesome sampler.

    ReplyDelete
  122. I keep trying to picture very bold prints - maybe Alison Glass, grouping those rich saturated colors she uses. Nice! Or a hot mess - not the fault of the fabric but of me, the quilter, trying to arrange busy prints to be not too busy. Ha!

    ReplyDelete
  123. So many beautiful fabrics and you want me to pick just one??? Well, Butterfly Dance would be fun!

    ReplyDelete
  124. i would love to use Fox and Friends for this quilt

    erin2470@hotmail.com

    ReplyDelete
  125. I am a scrappy person, so the scrappier it is, full of unusual novelties the more I like it! But I must say, I probably would use more solids on this one and a lot of cool neutral texts prints for backgrounds. At least that's what I'm thinking now. Usually I just decide what I think and go for it, but this particular pattern is one that I have noticed and would love to make. Thank you for sponsoring the nice giveaway!
