Blog Hop Party and Pattern Designing


Who doesn't love a great giveaway?  Everyone loves a giveaway, and especially a fabric giveaway.  So in honor of my blog being 5 days old, and my first blog hop party, I found some fabric to give away. 

On  March 17th, visit HERE to see the list of all the participating blogs.  I have 3 Thimbleberries fat quarters that I will give away.   Starting today and ending March 23rd, you can enter my giveaway.  I am wondering what fabric manufacturer is your favorite.  I personally love Hoffman.  Do you have a preference or do you just buy what looks good to you?  Comment about your favorite between now and March 23rd, and you are entered.  If you do not have a blog id, please add contact information so i can contact you if you win.   This is a very "young" blog so I am not expecting a lot of entries, so please enter :P



As for my quilting this week.  I have been waiting to send out a quilt for hand quilting.  They contacted me this week and they are going to be able to do it next week!!  YYIIPPIIEE!!  So I got the backing pieced today and it is ready to go now.  I am so excited!! 

And even more exciting quilting news!!  Last week I was into the local quilting shop.  The Christmas Crab Quiltery has just moved and I was in checking it out.  It is beautiful, and so nicely laid out.  While I was there I mentioned that I am saving up for a new sewing machine.  She suggested that if I wanted, I could teach a class on beginner paper piecing.  I immediately said yes.  I have done a lot of paper piecing, and I have taught it thru my guild many times.  But the more I thought it over, another thought came into my head.  Why not design a pattern??  If I designed a pattern I could sell it thru the store and teach the class to back it up.  So I have been playing with that idea all week.  I have drafted a couple blocks, and I think I have the one I want.  I have re-sized it, re-drafted it and I am now sewing it.  Let's all hope it turns out!!

  10. Welcome to blogging! I am a new follower and look forward to seeing your post and quilting!! I think after all these years of quilting with different brands a fav is MODA. But I do have several!!

    ReplyDelete
  11. My purchases aren't faithful to a particular designer (does that make me bad?), I simply choose what speaks to me. Bright, bold prints are my favorite and I know I've chosen wisely when my mother says 'That looks just like you'. This is her code for 'That's the ugliest stuff I've ever seen'. Welcome to blogging (I'm having a blast) and have fun!!

  109. I don't have a particular line of fabric that's my fave. I buy what I like and am in the mood for. the only ones I'm not really into are Asian Inspired, they're beautiful but not my thing to work with. Not too much into neon, but it has it's place. That was a brilliant idea to make up your own pattern to teach with, it sounds like a wonderful opportunity for you. Good Luck!

    ReplyDelete
  110. Hi, Janet! I am a new follower. I am an equal opportunist when it comes to fabric, I like it all. :o) But I do notice that a lot of the ones I am drawn to are Riley Blake fabrics. Love most of their stuff. Thanks for the chance to win.

  127. I don't have a preference for fabric...I buy what I like or a color I need for a particular project I'm working on. I do have quite a stash built up so I'm trying very hard to use what I have and not buy more for a while.

  142. Congrats on starting your own blog. And 141 entries to this drawing isn't too shabby! I'm a big fan of Moda fabrics but I do purchase from other manufacturers. I seldom meet a fabric I don't love. Thanks for the giveaway and I wish you lots of luck with your blog.

  143. Congratulations on everything going on in your life! I'm excited for you! I don't have a favorite manufacturer. I'm a fairly new quilter, so I'm focus on fabric no matter it's Momma! I'm always looking for guitar prints for 4 yr old son and hubby.

  144. Looks like you're doing pretty well for your first giveaway. Those are beautiful fat quarters. I don't really have a favorite fabric company. I get all kinds of fabrics from all over.

  145. Congrats on the opportunity to teach a class! That's awesome.

    Very pretty fabric. I'm still a new quilter and don't have much of a stash. I just buy what catches my eye at the store, though I am partial to the Japanese fabrics. Thanks for hosting a giveaway!

  148. Congratulations on starting your blog! I'm a new follower and I'm excited to be with from the beginning, almost beginning. I've only been reading blogs for 8 months and don't know why I waited so long. I love Thimbleberries. I was a member of the club for many years through my LQS. I'm doing a civil war BOM this year, General's Wives, as my big project this year. I love Moda, RJR and if other fabric catches my eye I just get it.

    Thank you for a great giveaway and a chance to win some beautiful fabric. Congratulations again Janet on starting your blog. You go girl!

  151. I loved imported japanese fabrics. No particular manufacturer as long as it's made with 100 percent cotton. Thanks!
