Modern Whimsy Giveway + a Bejeweled Pattern

Who wants some Modern Whimsy? :) And to sweeten the giveaway, Amanda Murphy, a fellow designer with Robert Kaufman and a supremely talented pattern designer, has given me 2 copies of her pattern Bejeweled to giveaway too!

See how pretty Bejeweled is?! Amanda used Modern Whimsy for her sample and it is simply gorgeous.



Robert Kaufman cut some ten-squares of Modern Whimsy for Amanda and me so we are each hosting giveaways and giving away 10-square packs and including a copy of the Bejeweled pattern for the winners.  These ten-squares include one piece of each print, so they won't be enough to complete the larger version of the quilt, but you will be well on your way!

I'll be drawing two winners on January 26, 2012 and Amanda's giveaway will wrap up the same day. So after you leave your comment here, hop over to visit Amanda for more chances to win. 

To enter here, tell me something about your "dream fabric".  It can be something that is currently on the market, or something you spied in the past, or something you've imagined.  What is it about the fabric that makes it so dreamy for you? It is a specific motif or color? Or is it all about the scale?  I'd love to hear all about it. Make sure you leave me a way to contact you. 

And if you're a new visitor, I'd love it if you sign up to follow my blog!

I love the "Heirloom Collection" by Joel Dewberry. The saturated hues tug at my heart strings. I dream of wrapping up in a quilt made of this loveliness!

Suburban Stitcher said...

My dream fabric? Right now I'm loving quilters linen...it's so versatile!

Fran said...

I still love the Far Far Away 2 fabric. The only thing is, I tend not to be very creative with it, as I don't want to lose the pictures and end up cutting large squares. For full on patchwork, anything with polka dots!

I'm a new follower! Purple fabrics are my favorite, and some of my favorites in purple are Kate Spain's Terrain, and Tufted Tweets, coincidentally!

Lisa Marie said...

I'm always looking for good background prints, especially interesting tone-on-tone prints. Neutral colors are good but also very pale shades of green or blue would be nice. And if they have swirls or dots that's even better!

Dede said...

This is gorgeous! Right now I am looking for a basic, graphic black and white print. Gray and white would work, too.

Ella said...

My dream fabric is kind of an odd vision. I have a running joke with my fiance about piracy and a kraken (also the nickname of our cat). I'd love a vintage-y map looking piece of fabric with a kraken and a pirate ship. Odd, I know.

mblittle5 said...

I have a love affair with pindot fabrics. Not just dots, but the really teeny tiny dots. They're getting a little easier to find, but still not common. When I find a nice one, I buy yards.

NurseBrandy said...

My perfect fabric would be a modern print with medium-jewel tones and would be very whimsical. A few bees tucked into the pattern would be the icing on the cake! I love flowers & swirls, so it would definitely include both. :)

Love to Learn said...

I love all fabric, but my favorite is Mary Englebreit fabric. It is hard to find, so I grab it up whenever I find some!

My dream fabric - probably to have some of the early Laurel Burch fabrics reprinted. I loved her designs!

Marilyn said...

I really don't have a favorite fabric, but like clean crisp designs. I would love to see "Butterfly Fling" come back. I love Amanda Murphy's patterns because the have clean lines with a modern twist. When I see a fabric I like, I can't get it out of my mind until I use it.

Nan said...

My dream collection would be modern and graphic and inspired by underwater life. I love going to aquariums and find the creatures and plants under the water so beautiful and colorful and interesting. Btw, I'm in love with Modern Whimsy--the blue and green lamb print is my favorite fabric I've seen in ages!

capitolaquilter said...

My dream fabric is out there somewhere waiting to be created. Large scale, graphic muted colors which doesn't sound very trendy but hey, maybe I'm ahead of the curve! I love your designs, especially for children's prints.

Jenny said...

dream fabrics include a lot by alexander henry....downtown dots, heath, arvika and bite size!! love these fabrics, and they are pipe dreams for my stash!

Nancy said...

I dream that I had the money to buy all the Dr Seuss fabrics! LOL! I can't afford to buy fabric anymore, so I dream!

Prof. S said...

I have many fabric loves, but my dream fabric would be one that looked like the comforters from my grandmother's house. They were a pale yellow with pink rosebuds, and as a little girl I thought they were just the prettiest things in the world. When my grandmother's house was sold, we got one of the comforters but it had already started to disintegrate. I would love that rose print as a cotton quilting cotton!

Laura said...

I love stitch in time by Malka! Just got my fat quarters yesterday but I would love more!

DianeY said...

As corny as it sounds, my dream fabric is a good Hawaiian print (I live in Hawaii). I'm not sure what it looks like, but it is not a garish, scream-in-your-face fabric as a lot of Ebay & Etsy "Hawaiian" prints are! Someday, I hope to find it!

Cindy W. said...

Just subscribed for your blog. I like fall colors. Thanks for a chance to win.

Roxanna said...

I am impressed with your line of fabric. I love the chairs, birds etc and the way you have put them together. Today that is my dream fabric. You have a new follower. Thanks

Kathy said...

Right now my dream fabric is a FQ bundle of Kate Spain's Terrain. But as I look at your blog I was also reminded how much I love the fabric with the furniture on it. Thanks for the chance to win your giveaway!

ylrbmk said...

I like to find fabrics with interesting patterns. Currently, I've been looking for fabric with a pug pattern to make something for my dog-daughter. In general, I like fabrics with saturated colors.

Johanna said...

I love fresh colors. No matter what colors or prints,if the colors in the prints go well together and look fresh, I will probably buy them :)

Jan said...

Right now, I love dots and stripes. I'd love me some Kaffe Spots.

gill said...

My dream fabric changes all the time! Right now it's Echo!

Hannah said...

I love monochromatic prints and just about any adorable animals (which is why I love Modern Whimsy so much). Thanks for the giveaway!

diane said...

My dream fabric would be one that has all my favorite colors in a simple design. But, I also love any kind of Polka Dot!

Alisa said...

I would love to have some of the early Ann Marie Horner fabric. I've never seen it in person, only on the internet. Thank you for the give away chance.

Brittany said...

I have to say I am super excited about this fabric. It is too cute. Right now I am LOVING the Lorax fabric that was just released. I can't wait to get my hands on some. Thanks for the great giveaway! :-)

Patrick said...

My dream fabric changes on a regular basis, but it's usually got some rust and turquoise in it. :) Thanks for the giveaway!

Beth-Sugarsmacks Boutique said...

I love fabric that is bright and cheery, like yours. It doesn't have to have any specific print just the color combos catch my eye. Aqua and red or turquoise and orange are among my favs! Thanks for the chance to win!

MeganAnne said...

polka dots always always just work their way right to my heart. and i love a clever take on them as well.

Jen B said...

I love the colors you used with Tufted Tweets. I also really like a lot of the Nicey Jane fabrics by Heather Bailey and Shades of Grey by Daisy Janie. So I guess dream fabrics for me would be summery colors (garden summer, not beach summer) with pops of contrast and a modern or retro sensibility.

Flying Blind... said...

When I started quilting I soon learned that Flea Market Fancy was some out of print, beautiful and elusive fabric - now the reprint is coming I am so so so happy!!

Quilting "b" said...

My favorite fabric seems to change everyday and my list of must haves grows and grows. Thank you for a great giveaway

MMorton said...

Dots, stripes, and yellow fabric with a red print.

Lee Ann Bailey said...

Hi! I'm a new follower--glad to be here. My dream fabrics are those out of print early Amy Butler designs. Any of them. They were magical.

Shelly said...

I covet Amanda Murphy's Veranda line of course. And because its not my granny calico fabric, It's so HIP!

ritainalaska said...

i'm a new follower :) my dream fabrics are whimsical flower and bird prints ... love to use them!

Mellisa said...

I love fabrics that have an architectural reference, maybe ironwork-like patterns, etc. I love saturated colors too! Thanks for the giveaway :)

Phyllis said...

I am a new visitor following your blog. I really like bright colors. That's a big change from my choices in the past. I think my artistic daughter has influenced the change. She teaches art and has a wonderful color sense. I love character prints like Aneela Hooey designs incorporate. A Walk in the Woods is a particular one I like. The fabrics shown on this blog are so great...bold and colorful!

Rachelle said...

My dream fabric is peacock in colour with a retro floral print on it in black. sable at xtra.co.nz

Sequana said...

My dream fabric was and always will be, I think, somethings called Tufted Tweets. *S* I keep picking up more wherever I can find it. It's so versatile and great colors.

Thx for the chance to win.

Jan said...

My dream fabric would be organic cotton with an art deco floral and bird print in shades of purple.

SassyCathy said...

Bejeweled is SO pretty! I'd love to make something as pretty. :0
I shared two of my dream fabrics over on Amanda's website. Now I'll share with you one of my different dreams... and it's almost nap time on Sunday after church so I'll make it quick.
This one is about Birds - (I'm a Byrd myself) This fabric is blue - aqua / sky / purply blues in pastel colors almost like a batik is the background. And brilliant blue birds (colors of blue blended so bright they almost hurt your eyes to look at them) are flying about and doing "birdy" things. There are nests with proud mamma birdies sitting on eggs, some nests have tiny cutesy baby birds with their mouths open - some birds are flying with ribbons in their tiny peckers tieing up beautiful bows on trees. There are birds sleeping with nighties on - a night cap and a night dress. Let's get crazy - some birds are getting married and some are old and in a rocking chair - a few are in school learning (one is a wise old owl). There are birds on a picnic, and birds in every situation and career you can think of. Ok - enough to give you the idea of my dream. Sometimes my dreams may be a bit psychedelic for a few people - but they are usually a lot of fun. :0

My favorite fabrics always include bright colors with white, and contemporary designs. I love your Modern Whimsy and I can't wait until Brr! is available. thanks for the chance to win!

Deb said...

Lots of different colors and a great modern print. Not 3 colors, more like 8!

Donna Baker said...

My dream fabric is Flower Shower by Michael Miller - I made this 12-pocket bag using it. thanks for the chance to win!!

Abby said...

My dream fabric is a lightweight silk/cotton blend in a pattern of indigo, pink, and teal bubbles on a white background that I saw on Spoonflower once. It would make such a gorgeous blouse.

Kathryn said...

My dream fabric would be green and would make a great background for any number of other fabrics in the line.

robin said...

Hmmm - hard to pinpoint just one, but something with red and turquoise, and white - not a large print. Something swirly and not too busy.

Carrie P. said...

I just came from Amanda's blog. thanks for a chance to win the giveaway.
My dream fabrics are all the greys out there. I love them
I am now a follower.

Catskill Quilter said...

My dream fabrics are always reds! One of my favorites is Kaffe Fassett red prints. I do remember that in the 1970's there were some fabulous, intricate red paisleys that were favorites of mine, and my daughter.

enie... mittendrin. said...

this morning, i saw a very well dressed young woman in a restaurant. she wore an oversized sweater jacket made of what looked like a wool blend larger scale black and grey print of different diamond shapes. it was absolutely perfect! i was out with my three young children by myself, so i couldn't ask her about her sweater. but i will now be hunting for a fabric with a similar quality and look so i can make my own sweater jacket like hers. i'm hoping to draw out the print pattern tonight and just turn it into framed art for now so i won't forget my inspiration.

Sherri G said...

I love the fusion fabrics. They're the best tone-on-tone fabrics, in my opinion. Enough print to be interesting and beautiful but not enough to interfere with any other fabrics.

lpnjam@aol.com said...

Anything that sparkles, glistens, or glitters. Love those sooo much. My other dream fabrics are brights. They look so great with a crisp white accent. They bring out so much of the clear true colors. Thanks for a chance to win. Love the Bejeweled pattern.

Andrea said...

i absolutely love good fortune, or anything kate spain! i also love outfoxed by lizzy house..i think what does it for me for both these collections are the vibrant colors and patterns!

Anna Honeysett said...

I love spots - they go with everything and add a vintage feel. A soft voile with big red spots would be a dream of mine!

Marjorie's Busy Corner said...

I like anything Kate Spain....but colour wise; black and gold. But right now; looking at Modern Whimsy....that is all I can think about...it is so fresh, soft, easy on the eyes and makes me think of spring...I will sign up to follow. Thank you.

Becky M said...

I love geometrics and polka dots. Something about the clean lines get my attention right away!

Amorette said...

i love fabrics with lots of bold color- i have been loving jewel tones lately. a line with a few bold, graphic prints and other complimentary ones in near-solid or very small prints is lovely to have around.

Karen said...

I'm a new follower. I don't have a dream fabric or even a current favorite.. I love them all.

Charlotte E said...

I think my dream fabric would feel like Anna Marie Horner's velveteen but have a Valori Wells print on it. I'm especially liking her elephants from Karavan Knit.

Lindsay said...

My dream fabric is something nice and heavy but still quilt-able with a nice smooth texture and bright fun colors!

eholst said...

I love anything by Anna Maria Horner. I would love to get my hands on some of her LouLouThi velveteen :) Thanks for the chance to win! And I am a follower!

Right now, I am patiently awaiting the re-release of Flea Market Fancy.

My dream fabric would be one which multiples in my stash on a weekly basis but in new design and colours. Love Amanda's patterns and the chance to win one along with fabric..awesome.

I love anything orange or purple. Lime green runs a close third.

Sylvia said...

Thanks for the great giveaway. Love the pattern/fabric combo. I'm a big fan of the classics. Ticking, pin dots, swiss dots, etc. I'm also loving Anna Maria Horner's Innocent Crush lately.

Karen said...

My dream fabrics are ones which, no matter which way you cut and slice them they still look fabulous, and you don't tire of using them. Thanks for the lovely giveaway! xx

Henria O. said...

I really love the way Chez Moi's Sophie looks on a quilt! I'm glad I collected some of it before it went out of print. It totally drew me!
sazzyfrazz at gmail dot com

Fran said...

My dream fabric is Tufted Tweets, though it was released before I started quilting & is now hard to get. I'd be SO happy if it were re-released - I suppose I can dream about that. Thanks for a lovely giveaway.

Jess said...

My dream fabric is saturated in colour, with unusual colour combinations and retro style prints. Now that I have my (almost) complete collection of tufted tweets, I'm wanting melody millers ruby star collections - my dream fabric of the moment.

Chiska said...

My dream fabric woul change color depending on the direction you looked at it--not drastically, just subtley like a mist in a forest.

Tong said...

My dream fabric is the blue bouquets from Denyse Schmidt's Flea Market Fancy collection, I'm happy that it's getting reprinted! Thanks for the giveaway!

Jennie P. said...

I wish for more patterned fabrics that have oranges and yellows as the dominant color. I have a hard time finding a good selection of those.

Monkeysinmypocket said...

my dream fabric at the moment is your BRR in blue and red. I've seen some super duper projects made with it already and I can't wait to get my hands on some!

Anonymous said...

As much as I like many existing fabrics, my dream fabric would be the ability to change colors to ones I prefer. Imagine, any fabric in any colorway!

Allison C said...

I'm a new visitor and have signed up to follow you! I'm really into gray fabrics right now and I'm also a fan of dogs. I would love a gray background fabric with white dog silhouettes. Ideally they would be different types of dogs...like weiner dogs, labs, golden retrievers, pointers, etc. I think the scale would be on the smaller side...like the pickups and pooches prints.

BillieBee (billiemick) said...

I either like warm and cozy fabrics like Kansas Troubles or fun colors like the brights of Sandy Gervais. Good quality fabrics. However the price has gone up way out of my budget.

Evelene S said...

I have wanted the original Summer Breeze fabrics. I am not usually a blue and yellow fan but that collection was so pretty. Thanks for a chance to win. bimbi9 at verizon dot net

Bry said...

My dream fabrics usually include a bunny or text. I love so many of the prints already on the market and can only imagine what else will be created in the future!

Deb said...

My dream fabric would include lots of beautiful reds because I was so impressed with the red and white quilts display in NY. I love the Bejeweled pattern and Modern Whimsy! debgiro at wildblue dot net

Helen said...

Lately my dream fabric has been anything soft like rayon... I've been playing around with soft fabrics and making my baby daughter some 'blankies'. She likes to sniff them :) So it NEEDS to be soft!

Miss Nancy said...

My dream fabric is anything summery especially yellows, oranges, greens, pinks, oranges. Thank you for this giveaway.

Have a great day.

Julie said...

Right now my dream fabrics have rich, deep color with an interesting organic pattern- large and small. Thanks for the chance.

LJ said...

I was glad to see the samples of the new fabric line - love the colors. Dream fabric would be in pink, I think. Dots are hot and I always put flowers at the top of my tower.

LochKnitsMonster said...

Anything ocean themed but right now I'm specifically looking for a starfish batik.

KOcanQuilt said...

My dream fabric would be a mix of all sizes and colors. ONe type of dream fabric I would love to find is some that would go with the few pieces I have found of a very old Debbie Mumm line that happens to match my dishes. Lavender Tea Garden - I knew when I bought the dishes that were coordinating fabrics, but I wasn't sewing at that time. Thank you for the chance to win this fabric!

Lori said...

My dream fabric is anything medium purple or darker with some periwinkle blue as an accent. Any motif, just anything that really makes the colors pop!

Susanne said...

Special fabrics are such fabrics that are unique and you still recognize/remember in years. That can be cute prints (e.g. your Tufted Tweeds chairs) or great modern design (special blenders). But in the end it is all a matter of taste :)
Susanne

SewSuzie said...

Fine cotton lawn (liberty tana lawn) in a contemporary print and colourway. A design like Tufted Tweets.

Katarina said...

My most favorite fabrics are Yuwa's prints of Suzuko Koseki's design. I love the quality - it feels very soft and yet firm, the prints are sharp almost as if it was printed on a paper and of course, the colors (aqua, red, pink or just black and white) and her mix of images and words, sometimes weird or surprising. There are loads of fabrics and designs I consider gorgeous and of a great quality (I love Lizzy House prints and colors, love Monaluna design, Kokka's naive prints) but SK was love at first sight :o)

Marg M said...

At the moment my favorite is the Melody Miller and Brrr

craftytammie said...

i like interesting typography prints. one thing i love about your lines is that the animal prints never seem babyish.

Tamsyn said...

Love this pattern and fabric line. Tamsyn

Pam said...

I love your tufted tweets and pouches and pick ups (I have both). I usually find that I am drawn to Riley Blake's style and I adore polka dots especially Michael Miller's Ta dot line.

Anonymous said...

Just lots of it..fabric, that is, would be my fav..love it all and "scrappy" well done makes me happy.
grace(at)amnet(dot)net(dot)au

Jules said...

i adore colour, i have lot's of favorites, and something with quirk. I love the birds in tufted tweets, the frogs in tula pink's prince charming, cabbages and roses kaffe fasset i have broad tastes!. thanks for the chance. I adore this range. and look forward to brrr also!.

Ann said...

I love deep rich colors, smaller or overall patterns with some whimsy. This is line is bright and fun for spring which I love.

Linda V said...

I am a new follower here. I love the bejeweled quilt! My dream fabric would be any with a very soft hand and soft pastels, too. Thanks for the giveaway chance.

I think Terrain fits the bill for my dream fabric. I love the colors and the modern presentation of the florals.

Happy Cottage Quilter said...

I have always loved Robyn Pandolph's floral fabrics. I am a newbie to modern quilts and fabrics, but they look so exciting to work with.

Margie said...

Thank you for the opportunity - I love this pattern and your fabrics. I would have to say that my dream fabric is an old vintage cottage rose fabric I saw and sadly, didn't purchase, up in the NC mountains - soft blue background with lovely cottage roses. It would have made such great pillow covers for my wicker chairs on the front porch. But, I can't seem to get enough of fabrics - modern, vintage, you name it. I even dream fabric! :-)

Echino always strikes a chord, the birds, flowers, animals and the deep, saturated colours. GillB

Beth said...

My dream fabric is something I'll love forever, that I won't tire of or look back on fondly with the same kind of affection I feel for the woman who sat next to me at work and ate lunch with me and of whom I was quite fond but know that we would now have little in common except for our shared past. Do you know what I mean? I want the fabric equivalent of the women who have been my friends since I was in grade school (the '70's) or high school (the '80's) and are my dear friends still.

JaneB said...

My dream fabric right now are woven plaids. I can't seem to find as many as there were in the past. I especially like them to include dark colors like black, dark brown or navy with lights or even brights.

Adele said...

My dream fabric is a modern print with a soft soft feel....I love Tufted Tweets and all of your designs....I am a huge fan of yours.

Thank you for hosting the giveaway.

heartsease54 said...

My dream fabric is usually what I'm working with at any given moment. My very favorite fabric in the whole world is one that is no longer available. It was a Maywood Studio fabric from several years ago. Black with multicolored foil flower shapes-blue, purple, orange, yellow, green. I have a tiny stash left of it that I am hoarding. I used a small amount of it for my Kindle cover, and it makes me smile. I love Amanda's designs, especially Bejewelled. It looks so fun & fresh made up with your fabrics.

MollyP said...

I think my dream fabric is my whole stash. I adore every piece I get. My fabric choices seem to change with my project, though. I am in love with soft color collections like Arcadia and Hushabye, but my personal style reflects bright funkiness like Urban Circus and Glam Garden. I'm way more in to vintage or mod prints, but with an unexpected colorstory. Hail to the fabric gurus!

Nikki said...

That pattern is awesome! The fabric is already on my list of "must haves"...cute AND bright!
My dream fabric is some blue swirly stuff that I bought years ago and only have about a 6x6" square of. I used it in tiny portions because I love it so. No idea who made it, but it makes me think of sunsets while sailing and I just love it!

Victoria said...

My dream fabric is 100% cotton, has polka dots, and is soft as a pup's ear! vlsaustin at hotmail dot com

Rhonda D. said...

My Dream fabric is any Red 1930s repro fabric. Thanks for the chance to win!!!

strandkorbtraum said...

As I already left a comment on Amanda's blog about my dream fabric, I will leave a few words about motives, even though I really like them, I wish there were more geometrical things, I can't keep the too randomly placed motived things near me, I usually have to make them into presents.

Sallie said...

dream fabric - something that would automatically be the shade I need whenever I need it. Thanks for the giveaway!

lilysmudge said...

Right now my dream fabrics are all the beautiful voiles. I want to use them to make a summer quilt.

Kira said...

I am still dreaming of Flurry. I didn't buy any for myself, but did help my SIL start a quilt top.

ninjadesigns said...

i feel like such a sell out, but my favorite fabric is minky. it makes such a mess, but ever since design houses started printing on minky, i swoon every.single.time!

NancyinSTL said...

I just used up the last large scrap of my dream fabric and wish I could go buy more. It's a beautiful multicolored cotton stripe made of mostly fall colors, with a hint of blue and metallic gold. I bought it a few years ago to make exchange blocks with a theme of Autumn Leaves. Since then, leftover scraps of this fabric has made an appearance in several of my subsequent quilts.

Richard Healey said...

I am new to quilting and now new to following your blog. I am currently making a series of quilts in black and grays for me and some other men in my family so more material for that is my dream. The better the variate the better.

jmniffer said...

I am new to quilting and picking fabric is still a difficult step. I find myself attracted to dots and tone on tone fabrics. I am sure that will change with time but for now that is what I go for. Thanks for the chance at your giveaway.

cakegirl said...

First, thank you for your generosity. My dream fabric is anything in a soothing, dreamy periwinkle blue. Such a beautiful blend of blue and lavender.

Jennifer said...

There are so many dreamy fabrics around... A perfect paisley would be one of my dream fabrics - in lovely peacock colours, not a large print, but not too small either.

nicole / Twitter: BTHM1 said...

my dream fabric, would be to find a stash of 40's cotton prints, that match the last of my grandma's quilts, as it is getting threadbare, and need some tlc and patches, and I'd love to be able to match up the prints. So far nothing has come close!

Andrea said...

Favorite dream fabrics...so many to choose from in my stash...I love florals and paisleys and swirls - in purple, teal, blue and green. I also love Batik. AND I also love rich deep red, black and white. I am not particularly fond of soft pastels as a general rule. What a great giveaway!

Zuzan said...

Dots, spots, circles, florals, paisley, nature, stripes, swirls getting the best background colour/design to show-off the other fabrics is my dream. And there are so many whites, ecrus...^Amanda has realised the dream with your design and her pattern. Looks just so easy........

VickiT said...

My dream fabric would be swirls, with dots and maybe another design but, mostly it would be in the perfect color of purple and blue. I'm really picky with the shade of purple I love so much although I never have been known to turn down anything purple.

I've got my fingers crossed because Amanda's Bejeweled pattern is one of my top three favorites of all her patterns. I hope to make that quilt for my Granddaughter.

Liberty said...

My dream fabric is Arcadia by Sanae. I have a stash of it at home and I love it so much that I am having a hard time deciding when to cut it up. :( I love the orange and aqua together. I find my sneaking downstairs to my stash to look at it and touch it. My fiance makes fun of me but I love it!

-Liberty

SeamedUP said...

Fabulous work on this new line! Can't wait to add it to the catalog at SeamedUP!

Currently, my dream fabric is Retro Vintage Scissors Sewing fabric by Suzuko Koseki for YUWA. I love the graphics combined with words. Great for fussy cutting!

Beth@seasonsofhome said...

I love Anna Griffon's new line with the paisley design.

isabel f. said...

I love all yummi colours!!! :))) in love with blue and lime :))

GrandmaDe said...

I love the bright, happy colors - it looks like it's perfect for the Bejeweled. My favorite fabrics are still the jewel toned balis - I bet they would look fabulous in this quilt too!

Tammy said...

My dream fabric would be something for my little boys that is neither too babyish or too grown-up. Maybe some subtle graphic prints but in bright colours as all the UK high st stores only sell boys clothing in khaki, grey & navy so would be nice to make them something funky!

mascanlon said...

Oh I love anything with navy and flowers.....you can find it shabby chic but I'd love to see it in something more contemporary with a few others to support it...a nice pin dot and tone or tone?

patricia said...

Yellow and red with beautiful flowers and coordinating prints. Just don't see it. I had some once and used every bit because it made me so happy.

Lisa E said...

I love the red-aqua combination. I have a collection of Sugar and Spice fabrics. This sounds like I'm totally sucking up, but I'm drooling over your upcoming Brrr fabric line. The red-aqua colorway is to die for!!!

bee said...

I really like teals and grays right now. I'm also loving Kate Spain's Good Fortune. Gorgeous fabrics in the giveaway - thanks!

charlotte said...

My dream fabric is the tiny scale print that looks like a small moth or flower from FMF. I see it all over people's quilts and I wish I had some, in every color available. I really love this fabric and I have none. I do love all your bird fabrics and I have none of those either, but they are cool.

Scarlett and Jack said...

Love this! I'm actually thinking of using this for my second daughter's nursery!!!

epban said...

My dream fabric is Anna Maria Horner's Bohemian Circle Print. I love that it has all the designs of the line reflected in it! Also am so looking forward to your Brrr! line...

Mel said...

I love vintage/retro inspired fabrics.

rilojane said...

I love a good quality cotton- and my eye is always gravitating toward large scale fabrics.
...I would also love to get my hands on some old bobby pin fabric from, I think, Kaufman circa 2004.

I think at the moment my dream fabric is something that grows on trees so I can stop spending money on it! But I also can't wait for Curious Nature to hit the shops, so good to see something more masculine. thanks for the chance to win (I'm a blog follower)

My dream fabric is your line with the birds. I am not good with names!! I just ordered some before it goes away at the end of the month. And I LOVE that quilt with the yo-yos. Is there a pattern somewhere?
Peace,
Nancy

My dream fabric happens to be blue/purple at this time. Pattern not real important, just the color.

this is a very pretty quilt and such cute fabric. My dream fabric is a black and white thin stripe that is a bit on the wonky side. It was great to use for bindings or trim on a quilt or pillowcase. Haven't seen any more for a few years.

My dream fabric is the "impossible fabric" in that its a fabric that would match everything. I would love to be able to have the perfect fabric to match up with whatever I'm planning to sew next. Thanks for the opportunity to win your giveaway. I am a follower.

I love finding a perfect shade of red, not too tomato-ey, not too dark, just right.

My dream fabric would feature the subtle pink medallions from the wallpaper in my childhood bedroom. I would love to have a tangible piece of that "memory" to keep forever. Thanks for the great giveaway!!

My dream fabric. It would be a single roll like brown paper from an old fashioned general store. I would not need any other fabric ANYWHERE in my studio because this magic roll would instantly become whatever I needed every time I rolled off a length. It would change right before my eyes to embody "the quilt in my head" at that particular moment. Lush greens and saturated blues, passionate purples, vibrant reds and sparkling oranges. After being cut from the roll, the piece's color would stabilize and the roll would neatly await my next project.

I love Tufted Tweats and fabrics with household items in blue or green. Makes me think of home :)

Hmmm, I thought I posted already but I can't find it so I'll try again. My dream fabric line is Amy Butler Ginger Bliss. There is a Kimono print that is my favourite fabric of all time. If it ever came back in print, I'd buy a bolt!

My dream fabric right now is to find some Paddington Bear fabric! My mom made me a pillow case a while ago to take with me when I did study abroad in London. I've been looking around to see if anyone still has any left so I can include it in a quilt now!

I'm always on the lookout for musical fabric! I'm a music lover & am collecting music fabric. I'd love to find some in teal or aqua. Thanks for a chance to win! :)

I can dream up lots of fabric designs! I put a sunset color on Amanda's blog, but here I think I want a nice reproduction red from the 1860s, something with a small figure on it, maybe tiny black cherry stems and leaves. It will be colorfast, of course, and have a whole line of coordinating fabrics so I can make a King-sized quilt! Thank you!

Colors are what attract me rather than the design. I don't have a dream fabric, but go for purples blues and greens.

My dream fabric would be a batik paisley in an assortment of tropical colors.
