Fabulous Fabric Friday and a Giveaway

Hey Everyone,

I don't know if you all noticed but I left the bundles on sale all week. They are still 25% off and I will leave them up until bed time tomorrow night... which could be Midnight Eastern but might 1am or 2am... having some ladies over to the shop for an after hours party after we are done at PIQF for the evening.

Life is speeding past at the speed of light at the moment. I can't believe I leave for Market in less than a week.

Would you like the chance to win a little something? How about a fat quarter bundle of Angela Walter's new fabric collection Drawn?


All you have to do is tell me in the comments which of the BOM options below you would most likely choose.

I am diligently searching for our new BOM and I have two ideas.

1. Jen Kingwell's My Small World. Yes, it would have to be a labor of love (read challenging) like both of the last two year's BOM's have been. For pictures you can see the quilt along and yes I do have access to patterns and have ordered some already. I will be putting up a pre-order for the patterns soon. If you want to be notified please sign up for the Newsletter. (sign up for newsletter is at the right of the blog)

2. A mystery sampler BOM in which you would receive a mini keychain ruler/template each month along with the pattern instructions and fabric to make the block with that ruler/template. I would be designing the blocks and I promise I write good patterns :) This would be a less expensive option and you would have the template/rulers to keep afterwards for other projects.

You can comment Option 1 or Option 2 or anything else you want to say like "I want both, because I have drunk the koolaid" or "I hate both options". :)

I will do the drawing after I get back from Market on the 26th. I am not sure what day because I am always so busy when I get home from a trip but you can keep commenting until I do the drawing :) Also keep an eye out next week for another giveaway because I always do one after Sample Spree while I am at Market.

  2. Option 2 would be my choice.

  3. 2 would be my choice. I love a good mystery in books and quilting. I love Angela's new fabric too. I have started a quilt with them. I got them from her when she came and spoke at out quilt guild and before they were released in stores.

  5. I love this fabric with such subtle patterns! I would choose option 2 and new to quilting, having the templates would be a bonus.

  7. Option 2 sounds different and fun. I would love to see the patterns you creat for it. Have fun at market. jeansophie (at) gmail (dot) com

  8. I would most likely pick option 2, I think it would be fun.

  9. love love the fabric - what great colors ! I would pick option 2 as well - boy aren't we an agreeable group !!!! Enjoy PIQF !!!

    ReplyDelete
  10. I am going with the crowd and pick option 2. Thanks!

    ReplyDelete
  11. HELLO, I'd choose #2 !Thanks for sharing!

  12. option 2 please - the first looks way too fiddley....

    ReplyDelete
  13. Option 2 has more appeal to me.

    ReplyDelete
  14. Option 2, I will just be honest, I have two brand new grandbabies AND I have an expensive hobby that I spend a lot of time doing (i am about to go play and maybe even roll around in new fabric, which is GORGEOUS, that just arrived yesterday shortly). Since I can not give up either of those things, LESS EXPENSIVE always catches my eye now. These grandbabies are expensive little stinkers! Oh but they have my heart!

  16. Mystery AND less expensive? Yes, please :)

    ReplyDelete
  17. I would go with #2 as well. Looks like I am in great company. :-)

    ReplyDelete
  18. I think I have to say both, although it looks like option 2 is in the lead.

    ReplyDelete
  19. I've been wanting to do a sampler, so option 2 would be the one I'd be most interested in. Even though the it's a small world quilt is pretty awesome, d still say option 2. Have a fabulous time at market. I can't wait to see all the pics. It would be like going to candyland for me.

    ReplyDelete
  20. Option 2 please.

  21. I like Option 1, however, it looks like #2 will get the win!

    ReplyDelete
  22. Option 2 is the better of the two, but I've never had the urge to do a mystery block. Who knows...maybe I would like it.

    ReplyDelete
  23. I think option 2 sounds more appealing. But both are the BOM! 😂

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  26. I'd pick option 2. Love the fabrics.

    ReplyDelete
  27. My Small World for me - I LOVE those quilts!!!!

    ReplyDelete
  28. I would chose number 2. always interested in trying something new!

    ReplyDelete
  29. Oh goodness, I like them both! I probably won't be able to do either though. I am a little too backed up with projects. My lovely too wise daughter told me that I can't buy more bins to stuff them in.

    ReplyDelete
  30. Totally love the idea of number 2, I need more rulers in my life :)

    ReplyDelete
  31. I'm no much of a mystery person so I would go with 1!

    ReplyDelete
  32. I love Option 1. I wish I didn't have to work so I would have time to participate if you do that.

    ReplyDelete
  33. The fabric is gorgeous. I have never done a mystery quilt and option 2 sounds like fun. Thanks for the giveaway.

    ReplyDelete
  34. Option 2 looks like the winner! Thank you for the giveaway.

  35. My Small World is gorgeous, but completely daunting to me. It would have to be option 2.

    ReplyDelete
  36. I like option one (but realistically don't have sewing time to participate in either one). That fabric though! Gorgeous!

    ReplyDelete
  37. Option 2 would be my choice. I generally dont like a mystery but I do like all of your patterns so I would trust this :)

    ReplyDelete
  38. Ooooh, I love a mystery! And tiny rulers too? I vote #2

    ReplyDelete
  39. It's weak, but while I love the Small World quilt, I am not interested in her non-contemporary construction techniques and would probably paper piece it. Also, mysteries, templates, and speciality rulers scare me.

    ReplyDelete
  40. I like both, but I don't paper piece. Thanks for the opportunity. acbeier71@gmail.com

    ReplyDelete
  41. I love option 2 and I love those fabrics! x

    ReplyDelete
  42. I would not do either one, but I love the fabric. Thanks for the giveaway.

    ReplyDelete
  43. I would be more likely to do option 2 because it's less expensive and I like the idea of the small ruler to go with it. As long as the pattern isn't too "cutesy" it would be fun to do. the my small world is on my "someday" list though.

    ReplyDelete
  44. The My Small World looks like a lot of work to me so I wouldn't choose that. Not sure about the mystery BOM if I didn't know what the fabrics were beforehand. I'm participating in the Patchwork City Westside BOM and have not been enthused with some of the fabrics I've received. In fact, I am not including a few FQs I've gotten and am having a hard time getting others to work together.
    Thanks for the chance to win the FQ bundle.

  45. Gotta go for the mystery -- option #2 :) Have fun at market!

    ReplyDelete
  46. I think Option 2 would be fun. Also, love Angela's new fabric.

    ReplyDelete
  47. My Small World is on my list but since I haven't started it yet, I doubt I'd do it for a BOM either. So the mystery BOM it is. I'm having withdrawal because everyone is gearing up for market and I'm not going! At first I was relieved because I am already scheduled elsewhere but I still want to be there! Have so much fun!! Thanks.

    ReplyDelete
  48. Option 2 sounds more fun to me!

    ReplyDelete
  49. Beautiful fabric! Have fun at Quilt Market!

    Option 2!!!!!

    ReplyDelete
  50. I like Option 2. Have a great time and select more fun fabrics while at Quilt Market

    ReplyDelete
  51. Jen Kingwells "my Small world" Why? Because I'm now an adventurous quilter and I need a 2016 challenge...or late 2015. Thanks for the opportunity to help you choose:)
    Julie I love your shop and all the fabric offered period! Intrepid Thread is just too cool. If ever I get to the West Coast from my East Coast, I'm poppin' in!

    ReplyDelete
  52. The second one sounds much more appealing to me. I don't ever join BOMs because they are so labor intensive and scary looking but a mystery one wouldn't be as scary because I wouldn't be able to see what I'm diving into first! Also, the mystery gift each month sounds awesome!

    ReplyDelete
  53. I like the idea of #2, the rulers would be fun, but I always like to see what I am getting into.

    ReplyDelete
  54. Option 2 pls although I am definitely going to be purchasing a Small World pattern!!

    ReplyDelete
  55. i choose option 2. thanks for the giveaway.

    ReplyDelete
  56. Option 2 as I am no a big fan of the other pattern:)
    Have fun at market! No attending festival this year:( Saving $ for 35th wedding anniversary next year:)

    ReplyDelete
  57. Option 2 sounds unique for a BOM and interesting. Enjoy your time away at the quilt shows.

    ReplyDelete
  58. Loooove the Fabrics!!! :) thanks for chance to win!

    I definitely would choose Option 2...a Mystery & the Templates sound like such a fun idea!!!!

    ReplyDelete
  59. I would love to do a Jen Kingswell quilt! And even though Small World is challenging, doing it a month at a time would make it easier.

    ReplyDelete
  60. My choice is option 2! Bonus would be to receive the templates. Yet, I am not sure you should count my choice because in all honesty with my health issues, I will not know if I will be up to the challenge until that time. Love the fat quarter bundle you have chosen for this give away! It just sparkles, for some reason. Thank you for the fabulous opportunity to win this prize and have a wonderful creative day!

    ReplyDelete
  61. I would say Option 2- a mystery is always fun!

    ReplyDelete
  62. Option 2 here! Option 1 would be SO daunting.

    ReplyDelete
  63. Mystery quilts are a little scary but so much fun! I vote for Option #2.

    ReplyDelete
  64. Option 1, My Small World sounds like a winner to me!

    ReplyDelete
  65. I was just telling my stash-building friend that I'm more of a tool/pattern collector (as I buy fabric per project, rather than building a stash as she is rapidly doing), so I totally pick option 2.

    I'd be crazy tempted by option 1, though, because I love the IDEA of labors of love, but I have a hard time actually getting them done.

    ReplyDelete
  66. I like Option 2. dawnm1993(at)gmail(dot)com

    ReplyDelete
  67. Option 2, I'm not up for "challenging" at this time :) AND.... I love the idea of a mini template/tool each month.

    ReplyDelete
  68. Definitely #1 - I think My Small World is really unique and challenging enough without it being a mystery BOM.

    ReplyDelete
  69. Option 1, love Jen Kingwell patterns.

    ReplyDelete
  70. Option 1 sound great, fun and beautiful!! Yep, my choice!

    ReplyDelete
  71. I like option 1. The problem with option 2 for me is that I like to choose mown fabric so that it is in keeping with my likes, although it would be great to have templates to use again.

    ReplyDelete
  72. I like the idea of a mystery quilt but don't think I'd use mini templates again. I think I'm ready for a less challenging BOM. Can't wait to see what you find at market!

    ReplyDelete
  73. I would choose Option 2 because I am new to quilting and have a lousy choice of color. No matter how I pick the colors they all look like mud.

    ReplyDelete
  74. I think the mystery sampler quilt, option 2, would be what I would choose. Thank you, peterstankovich@comcast.net

    ReplyDelete
  75. I like the idea of option 2 - it sounds fun. I am doing a mystery quilt along now and i am finding it challenging now knowing how it will all come together or if my fabric choices are complete duds, but I could choose to remove the mystery (so to speak) but have chosen not too. I like a surprise!

    ReplyDelete
  76. The truth is that I wouldn't pick either of them as I don't enjoy "block of the month" things. But if I were picking I would pick option 2

    ReplyDelete
  77. I would pick Option 2 IF I had time to do it!!!

    ReplyDelete
  78. I like option 2 - I love little rulers!

    ReplyDelete
  79. Option 2. I would tend to do it, if I got something in the mail!!

    ReplyDelete
  80. Option 2 please. jarvenpa1ne at gmail dot com

    ReplyDelete
  81. Definitely #1. I think My Small World is unique and challenging.

    ReplyDelete
  82. Mystery sampler sounds great!

  83. I like option 2 and the fun of a mystery in the making. Yes, yes....

  84. I choose both! Why not! And I haven't drunk the koolaid - yet!

    ReplyDelete
  85. I like option 2 best. Thanks and God bless! ILuvTheEucharist @ aol.com

    ReplyDelete
  86. Option 2 as I'm not up for "challenging" yet...

    ReplyDelete
  87. Option 2. There are lots of tutorials already for My Small World and I have already finished mine. Totally enjoying your BOM this year!

    ReplyDelete
  88. I like the idea of Option 2. Each block would be more useable in other mini quilt projects like purses or placemats, etc. And you get the mini rulers:)

    ReplyDelete
  89. I think I would choose option 2.

    ReplyDelete
  90. How about an advent calendar? 24Tangent@gmail.com

    ReplyDelete
  91. Probably option 2. Nancy A: rangerer@sbcglobal.net

    ReplyDelete
  92. I love the idea you have for the Mystery Quilt BOM. It sounds like so much fun!

  93. I would pick Option #2. Have fun at Quilt Market.

  94. I like the Option 1. Thanks for the great giveaway.

    ReplyDelete
  95. Option 2 looks like the winner....and sounds good to me too. Store should have been hopping with everyone coming by from PIQF

    Have fun!

    ReplyDelete
  103. I like option 2: I've seen that jen kingwell pattern and know that it would just be too labor intensive for me!! I was in the shop Thursday and bought some of the Angela Walters backing fabric! :-)

    ReplyDelete
  104. I had noticed and I ordered ;) I think I would choose option 2

    ReplyDelete
  105. I really like the idea of #2. It'd be nice to collect some smaller rulers - they come in handy!

    ReplyDelete
  106. Option 1. I love Jen Kingwell. But I might spring for #2 as well.

    ReplyDelete
  107. Option #1 - I love Jen Kingwell's My Small World pattern and I'm signing up for the newsletter because I want a copy of the pattern! Thanks for the opportunity to win Angela Walter's cool new fabric and for the opportunity to chime in on your next BOM! And thanks for getting more copies of the My Small World pattern.

    ReplyDelete
  108. Option 2 sounds so fun and works for all levels of quilters with an extra prize :) how fun!!

    ReplyDelete
  109. Option 1! I've spent far too much time trying to get that pattern this summer (without success) so I'm all for My Small World.

    ReplyDelete
  110. I like option 1, but I hate suprises! :) And I always drink the koolaid. Thanks for sharing! Yay, super fun!

    ReplyDelete
  111. Option 2 would be my choice; although, i must confess that I'd most likely do neither. :-)

    ReplyDelete
  112. Count me as a drunk quilter. Like 'em both! Either would keep me out of the bars and off the streets as my granny used to say....

  113. I need my mojo back so I'm hoping Option #1 will do it for me! :)

    ReplyDelete
  114. I like option #2! (escapefor1@msn.com)
