It's our Birthday Giveaway! And we have more Tilda too.

Hey Everyone,

Six years ago today we got our business license and opened shop. It's been quite a ride and everything is changing this year... but it's been fun right?

We have a bit of new Tilda in and I just realized I hadn't posted here that we have the newest collection up for pre-order. This is Tilda Circus which is coming April/Early May


We also got a few little bits in that look like this:


You can find them at this link as well.

We have Charleston coming this week so I thought it might be fun to do a giveaway with that.... There are 16 prints... here is a pre-view by Amy

To win just answer this simple question: What is a new trend that you have seen that you would like to incorporate into your home decor?

I have a reason for asking that question but I am not going to tell you what it is yet :)

I will draw a winner next Friday.

Love,
Julie

  1. Neutral comforters with colorful bed runners. Also, dark backgrounds (blackish & grays) may be coming back for quilts. sjvonfumetti at yahoo dot com

  2. Colorful cushions are my attraction now. Trying to make some to make some to display according to seasons.

  3. I am seeing a lot of minimalistic features lately, completely bare counters, sparse decoration, clean open spaces -- I love the look and would love to embrace it, but my inner Mess Monster makes it unlikely to happen! I can't even keep my sewing table in order, so not much luck for the rest of the house!

    ReplyDelete
  4. Not sure if it's a trend, but I read a post about decorating with old window panes. I'd like to get my hands on one and add a mirror behind it to hang above my fireplace. I love the idea of that! (I also love these fabrics!)

    ReplyDelete
  5. It's been a trend for awhile now, but I'm loving a lot of the farmhouse vibe---the "simpler things". Thanks! marshudson AT comcast DOT net

  6. I would like to use the flamingo color as an accent in our home.rita_l_39212@yahoo.com

    ReplyDelete
  7. Not so much a decorating scheme, but my goal this weekend is to have all horizontal spaces cleared. Our little house is just feeling too little and I'm hoping this might help.

    ReplyDelete
  8. I like the farmhouse look ala Joanna Gaines with crisp whites and soft grays. Mostly I like a clean decluttered look.

    ReplyDelete
  9. I really like the Scandinavian minimalist trend.

    ReplyDelete
  10. I have seen collections organized in a clean style, for those of us that have those sort of things! I have tried to do this with all my photos in my home and it's a nice look.

    ReplyDelete
  11. Love these fabrics! Thank you for the giveaway. 💜

    ReplyDelete
  12. Personalization of the home with the homeowners' assets (wall art made by the homeowner). Loving the gray/green pantones.

    ReplyDelete
  13. Minimalist seems to be the way to go so more organization is popular now. Bins and cupboards to get things put away. Also, saturated colors with flamingo pink and also dark blues and mustard colors.

    ReplyDelete
  14. I would like more storage baskets to keep things neater. They have so many great options out there now. I like the natural fiber baskets to keep things all tucked away and yet accessible.

    ReplyDelete
  15. It does seem that clean lines and soft grays are showing up a lot, and then with lots of pillows in bolder colors. Amy's designs are so sweet.

    ReplyDelete
  16. Probably not a new trend (as I tend to be six steps behind), but bright colors as an accent have caught my attention lately.

    ReplyDelete
  17. I am not sure about this, but to simplify and just add some color accents has caught my attention.

    ReplyDelete
  18. Happy Birthday! I am seeing a lot of smaller projects lately mini quilts that have their own dedicated wall. I am loving the look.

    ReplyDelete
  19. Navy becoming more popular and replacing black in some cases.

    ReplyDelete
  20. Happy Birthday. Mini quilts and also minimalism.

    ReplyDelete
  21. I would love to find time to sew a few pillows, possibly using Churn Dash block or paper piecing. Not sure if it's a trend, but I would like it. Thank you, peterstankovich@comcast.net

    ReplyDelete
  22. A more neutral wall color for bedrooms.,

    ReplyDelete
  23. I don't know if this is new but I have seen a lot of small quilts. When I get the current projects, I would like to fill the walls in my sewing room with some small quilts. There are a few walls in the rest of the house where I could put some wall quilts. Nancy A: rangerer@sbcglobal.net

    ReplyDelete
  24. I love the new "farmhouse" trend. I am hoping to incorporate it into my home one little piece at a time. Thanks for the chance to win!

    ReplyDelete
  25. I love the clean, white looks of furniture with bright accents and floral and embroidered pillows and quilts to hang on the walls.

  26. I am never sure what is a trend...but when I'm looking through my magazines, I am often seeing fine art being mixed with "garage sale" art and art created by family members, and all of it being displayed together in a warm, loving way--which I read as, if you love it, show it. We've tried to do that in our home, by matting prints from children's books alongside original watercolors by family members alongside art we purchased next to my mini quilts, but I'm more determined than ever to stretch the boundaries of what we display. I've made shadow boxes using antique photos I love, instead of having them in a drawer, for example.

    ReplyDelete
  27. I like the downsizing of big furniture pieces. I've noticed that sofas,chairs, tables and just furniture in general are not quite as big and heavy looking as they were. I like it not only because it allows more area in a room but I also don't have to struggle to get free of one of them. I always felt like I was being swallowed by the sofa.

    ReplyDelete
  28. Congratulations on your sixth anniversary!
    I really like groupings of mini quilts as art. I love to make mini quilts and I intend to start a collection of them around a theme, to use on my sewing area's walls.
    I am also planning a mural for my staircase area. The theme is The Little Mermaid. I am using an image of her from a coloring book, using a projector to transfer it to the wall. The stairs will look like the sandy sea floor, and the walls water with some cute fish and she will be on a large rock on the landing, I am excited to start on this!

    Thanks!

  29. After 29 years of having the same couch (recovered twice), we're about to totally redo our living area - which means all new furniture. Homey with few knicknacks has been my trend previously (because I didn't want to dust around them) but this time I think we're going for clean but color. Our red/gold couch is homey and this time I think I'd like to go for a teal nubby fabric or something equally as poppish.

    ReplyDelete
  30. Happy Birthday! I have noticed a lot more mini quilts and a lot of straight-line quilting, especially in more modernistic patterns. Thank you, Susan

    ReplyDelete
  31. Happy Birthday! Modern quilts are so popular right now. I would love to work some into my décor.

    ReplyDelete

  36. CONGRATULATIONS ON "6"! Loving the Neutrals-Low Volumes with Navy+Grays! Thank You so much for a lovely giveaway! msstitcher1214@gmail.com

    ReplyDelete
  37. Simplicity...trying to declutter by donating, recycling. (I don't know about anyone else, but I have got to clean out the plasticware cabinet...the plasticware is taking up far too much kitchen real estate)....actually, to make more room for my craft supplies and fabrics!

    ReplyDelete
  38. I'm kind of oblivious to new trends and prefer to do my own thing most of the time. Right now my current trend is to finish the several projects that I've started. Love the giveaway fabric! Would use it to start another project!

    ReplyDelete
  39. Lots of throw pillows. Every shape, size and color. Something that is easy to sew and can add a pop of color to inside decorating, and that porch or deck as well.

    ReplyDelete
  40. I don't really keep up with trends, but I do know that there is a de-cluttering movement. I probably need to join that, but I'm too busy sewing to take the time to fool with it!

    ReplyDelete
  41. I just gave my kitchen a facelift, and added light blue glass subway tiles.

  44. I want to incorporate a pop of color into all of my neutrals. Just had walls painted a pretty greige color and sofa recovered in a neutral gray. I now need to find just the right color for throe pillows, tufted ottoman and drapes. C_dragon at earthlink dot net

    ReplyDelete
  45. I see talk of farmhouse sinks in the kitchen...they sure are pretty. congratulations on six years! raising a glass to many more

    ReplyDelete
  46. I like the shift over the past few years back to aged gold tones in hardware. My husband thinks it is still too early, though!

    ReplyDelete
  47. I love all the weathered wood pieces, e.g.. picture frames, clipboards, baskets, etc. I am in the process of making these and am using paint wash to create a retro look. I have made many things for my studio so much so that I can't put anything more in the room, I love it!
    I am also making more traditional quilts so I need to start collecting more civil war reproduction prints. I'll put one of these onto my own queen sized bed.

    ReplyDelete
  48. love the old country/weathered look!

    ReplyDelete
  49. Congratulations on six years and more to come!I don't really keep up with trends, but I am a lover of bed runner so a new one would be welcome or a large table!

  54. Around here, a lot of folks have lighted, brass wire Christmas type trees on the porch, that stay up all year. They really look pretty at night. Here's to many more years of business!

    ReplyDelete
  55. The trend that interests me is the minimalist style... but I doubt that I could ever do that in our home!!! I am a bit of a hoarder and can't get rid of anything!!! I am trying to simplify a bit at a time and it's looking less cluttered in our home!!

    ReplyDelete
  56. Congrats on your birthday. I have been enjoying the mini quilt trend.

    ReplyDelete
  57. I love the trend towards Mason jars and LED lights ~ we just installed two over our kitchen island in our log cabin. Perfect.

    ReplyDelete
  58. Love the Charleston line! BEAUTIFUL!! I have been watching too much Fixer Upper! Love Johanna's industrial style of home decor. I'd like to incorporate some of the "metal" work that she often displays, such as tin containers, metal signs, etc. khauglan (at) yahoo (d)ot (com)

    ReplyDelete
  59. I love the new pot plant holders on legs, they are like a small table. I could still make a gorgeous pot plant pouch and sit on top of it.

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  67. Happy Birthday! I'm not really up on new trends, but I like the new area rugs that have a pattern that makes them look old and faded. Makes the pattern soft and more of a background to the room rather than a bold pattern.

    ReplyDelete
  68. I live in the country so my house is all country. I would love to change it to bright, geometric, bold colors.

    ReplyDelete
  69. We live in an old Farmhouse...original part was built in 1830. Needs some redoing...and I would like a rustic farmhouse look...we have replaced old window..that were still the old wavy panes...I want to use them in here in some way. Also alot of the old beams & such too, that are stored in the barn..

    ReplyDelete
  70. Llamas. I love Elizabeth Hartman's pattern and all the Llama fabric too.

    ReplyDelete
  71. I would like to use a lot of neutrals in my quilts, with a pop of color in between.

  72. More simplistic decorating. I am loving the white and soft gray look! Wouldn't it be fun to throw a bright modern quilt in that mix!!
    Cjpike (at) indiana (dot) edu

    ReplyDelete
  73. A new trend that I am crushing on here is metalwork signs. These are rusty metal sheets (think metal roofing sheets) that have almost anything you want laser inscribed or cut into them. They are especially great for outdoor living spaces. I hope to have one with a fantastic/over the top poodle on it as a screen to create a wall In our fire pit area!

    ReplyDelete
  74. Right now I am really liking darker colored walls with bright and colorful accent pillows, wall hangings and table runners. Thanks!

    Please click on the delaineelliott above for my email link.

    ReplyDelete
  75. Crisp white walls with some type of texture. And adding color with accessories.

    ReplyDelete
  76. I have no clue what is current in decorating, but I would love to be able to do a minimalist/uncluttered space. But let's face it, I am a messy guy.

    ReplyDelete
  77. Grey is the new taupe. For years everywhere I looked I saw shades of brown as my friends moved away from white walls in their homes. Thanks to the farmhouse look, grey and white walls are coming back! They provide a clean palette for addition of color in accent pieces.

    ReplyDelete
  78. Bold color pillows. I need more of them.

    ReplyDelete
  79. Bed Runners - don't have space to do a full size quilt - thanks.

    ReplyDelete
  80. I like the salvage trend (reclaimed wood, windows, etc.)but I am not so inclined to the work of it! Thanks for the great give away. crazeematz@gmail.com

    ReplyDelete
  81. Being a crafter, the whole minimalist style is attractive (as I sit amongst my clutter).

    ReplyDelete
  82. I like the look of white as an accent color in home decor.

    ReplyDelete
  83. I don't know how trendy this might be, but the original, 14 year old carpeting could sure use replacing! While we're at it, maybe we could replace the hideous laminate in the adjoining bedroom too? Happy birthday!

    ReplyDelete
  84. Less is more is my new motto....and we are painting our updated rooms with a pale gray....

    ReplyDelete
  85. I am the least trendy person around! I am usually one of the last people to jump on the trend boat too! I'm just going with clean and simple, you cannever go wrong with that!

    ReplyDelete
  86. We are building our house, so I have been trolling Pinterest trying to figure that out! I've come to the conclusion that my taste is "industrial farmhouse". I'm painting the walls a neutral color (slightly different in each room), with accent's of color in accessories, along with bringing in woods & metal elements. I'm so excited to start painting!!

    ReplyDelete
  87. Walls in taupe shades are now transformed to shades of grey. Love the colors used to accent them.

    ReplyDelete
  88. Free standing bathtubs seem to be the trendy thing to incorporate into a bathroom renovation. They look nice but i'm not sure how easy they are to get in and out of (as we age) - I'm still debating. eliz.i@sympatico.ca

    ReplyDelete
  89. Congratulations and Happy Birthday! I would like to add some pillows with bright colors and geometric shape fabrics for fun!

    ReplyDelete
  90. I would like to decorate with my handmade quilts. I have a 14 ft. stair well that is just calling for a quilt to be hung!!

    ReplyDelete
  91. I'd go with the Scandinavian look, although I'd never conquer it. Too much stuff!

    ReplyDelete
  92. I would love to go minimalist but, that would mean a consistent habit of putting everything in its place -- so unlikely for me
    sharongalli@gmail.com

    ReplyDelete
  93. I love the vintage "repurposed" trend, ship lap on walls and sliding barn doors!

    ReplyDelete
  94. happy b'day. i like the bare floors (no carpet) and light walls and pops of color.

    ReplyDelete
  95. As someone who doesn't get around too well these days, I'd be happy with just about anything as long as someone else came to my home and implemented it!! lol!! Happy Birthday!!

  100. I would like to incorporate the little metal hooks that you put on the wall. They have an animal or different things like that on them. Super cute!

    ReplyDelete
  101. I redid my kitchen 10 years ago and went with white cabinets, white appliances, and lighter counter tops instead of the very dark wood and granite. Now I see that most of kitchens are showing these colors. Love the Tilda, wasn't that impressed at first, but this line is gorgeous. Congrats on 6 years.

    ReplyDelete
  102. I'm trying to go for the less is better look. More free space on my built-ins and tabletops. Less cluttered looking. Also thinking of re painting with a creamy color

    ReplyDelete
  103. The use of linen in quilts has me intrigued and I'd love to know about how to incorporate them in my projects. Love your shop!! Happy Birthday!!

    ReplyDelete
  104. Signs with sayings on them instead of just pictures hanging up on the walls.

    ReplyDelete
  105. Neutral backgrounds with pops of color

    ReplyDelete
  108. Mini quilts to hang on your walls seem to be a trend right now. I love them.

    ReplyDelete
  109. Congratulations on six years! KonMari is my new trend. This summer I am going to spend my vacation at home decluttering.

    ReplyDelete
  110. I love the new barn doors (ala Chip & Joanna Gaines) and will have them in our new house that we see for the first time tomorrow! Very exciting! We are moving from Colorado to Florida and our son and his wife oversaw the construction that we haven't seen yet (except for pictures)!

    ReplyDelete
  111. Hmm..new trend? Well, I've seen mini quilt walls...I'd love one of those.

    ReplyDelete
  112. I love the Bright green that is the trend now for wall coverings and accessories of different textures. Add a bright wall quilt as a focal point.

    akk_nana@yahoo.com

    ReplyDelete
  113. A more minimalist style would be great, but not sure it's realistic for us! Maybe some new bright improv quilted pillows will be a start.

    ReplyDelete
  114. pillows in al sorts of colors, shapes and sizes added to a neutral background.

    ReplyDelete
  115. I'm focusing on two trends this year, house-wise: Minimalizing for the public areas, and Art-walls in the dining room - specifically going for an Art Deco ala Miss Fisher style there.

    ReplyDelete
  116. I've been seeing a lot of farm style or simple decor.

    ReplyDelete

  118. Pastels - lots of them. Do like the Art Deco trend :)

    ReplyDelete
  119. I don't know if this is a trend in home decor, but I want to make a quilt using different substrates. Nothing crazy. Maybe cotton and linen to get started.

    ReplyDelete
  120. I have seen a few chairs reupholstered in quilted fabrics made from old quilts or quilt designs appliqued onto background fabric...would love to do that myself! mumbird3(at)gmail(dot)com
