Wonky Donkey 2 Quilt...And a giveaway!

For those of you who have been following me for a while, you likely remember the wonderful Wonky Donkey quilt that Kate Conklin made last year from my original Donkeys in Wellies fabric? And who could really forget Fizzy, who was Kate's quilt model? :)


So I was tickled when Kate let me know that she was going to be re-doing her pattern using my new Jack and Jenny line. She's just revealed the new quilt on her blog along with the news that the quilt will be making its debut at Australian Quilt Market in the HQW Distributors booth in a few weeks. Congrats Kate!! Pick up a copy of the Wonky Donkey 2 quilt pattern here from Kate's store. Its a fantastic pattern and it looks like it would be really fun to sew. 



And although Kate's no longer living near Fizzy, she was able to track down Cocoa, who was her obliging quilt model for the new Wonky Donkey 2! How wonderful is this shot? And Cocoa looks really soft doesn't he?!




To kick off the weekend (TGIF!) I'm giving away a FQ set of the entire Jack and Jenny line. All you need to do to be registered is leave a comment here on this post. I'll draw a winner this Sunday evening, 5/20. 

And if you have any ideas to share when you leave me your comment, Kate's wondering if she should keep the quilt pattern named Wonky Donkey 2 or change it to something else. Hop over to her post and read through her Wonky Donkey story. It will definitely make you giggle and maybe it will inspire you with some naming ideas.

Our college mascot is a grey mule, and this fabric would make something great, maybe as a fundraiser. I'm sure the kids would clamor for it. I like the Wonky Donkey name. Kathie L in Allentown

Amy said...

Love those wonly donkey quilts!! Would love to win so I can make one too!!! amysalbums2004[at]yahoo[dot]com

Laura said...

I love these fabrics, and the name Wonky Donkey still works maybe just call it Wonky Donkey Part Deux :)

Thanks for the chance!

Dani said...

Aaaaaahhhh! That fabric combo with the quilt is too cute!

Ellen said...

Love Cocoa! That is such a great fabric line!

drmithome said...

I think Wonky Donkey 2 suits it.

Julie said...

Yes please! I love it.

robin said...

:) I think the donkeys love it! How about Dinky Donkey?

Lucy said...

Having a large soft spot for both donkeys and rain boots, I would love to win this collection. I like the current name for the quilt but if Kate wanted to be silly, she could call it "Wonky Donkey 2: Rainboot Boogaloo."

Ashley said...

I love all your animal fabric lines! The llamas, birds and the donkeys, oh my!

Lisa Marie said...

Kate's post was definitely entertaining. The first line cracked me up "There's nothing cuter than a donkey in boots". Prior to the fabric lines, who ever thought of a donkey in boots?!? The fabrics are adorable though and I would LOVE to win! I like the Wonky Donkey name -- descriptive and it's fun that it rhymes.

Bree said...

Wonkey Donkey is a great name and totally makes me giggle. Love the galoshes!

B Greene said...

I guess a mule is not quite a donkey, but "Cool Mule" sprung to mind.

Great fabric and a wonderful quilt pattern. Thanks for the chance to win!

Swedish Scrapper said...

I love this fabric! And, the llamas! Gives me a smile each time I see them :D!

Karen said...

Absolutely love these fabrics; Wonky Donkey fits perfectly, why change?

Kelsey said...

Hummmm. How about the Wonky Donky Dance from the Wonky Donky Line? Such splendid boots on a happy donkey bring jig and jive to mind.

Ah! Wonky Donky Jig and Jive!

My daughter would have so much fun with this pattern!

Phyllis said...

Love the cute pics of the models!

capitolaquilter said...

Hard to top Wonky Donkey. What a fun photo shoot. Love the fabric line.

Sonia B said...

Lovely. Wonky Donkey sounds fun. Thanks for the chance.

BillieBee (billiemick) said...

Even if I don't win, it was worth the time to get to see Fizzy. So cute and it made me smile!!

Great fabric as well, but I'm in love with Fizzy.

AngieSue said...

I LOVE this line -- and am eagerly waiting for the polar bears to come out!

Rachael said...

Oooh I love donkeys, seriously like best animal ever!

Rachael

Johanna said...

My whole family loves this fabric - even my husband approves it. He isn't easy to please!

liberal sprinkles said...

ooh that donkey is so cute and the line is super fun. I love the boots!

Leslie said...

OMG, I think I'm in love. I love the Jack and Jenny line! When I was little I wore plain red rainboots and I wish I'd had a pair of these happy boots. I would have made jumping in puddles an extra special joy!

Poppyprint said...

I totally cracked up at Fizzy's photo shoot and now it's followed up by Cocoa. Hilarious!!! Love your donkey's and Kate's pattern is perfect. Thanks for always sharing your fabric!

Kate said...

Not only do I really love this fabric line, but I think I could snuggle Cocoa all day long. That is one soft-looking donkey!

Amber H. said...

Wonky Donkey is a great name for a quilt pattern, but it also sounds like it would be an awesome name for a folksy rock band.

And Cocoa looks so sweet!

Wendy said...

Not sure what you mean by "registered" but I do follow your blog on Google Reader!

I am terrible at naming quilts! I like Wonky Donkey 2 :)

caribousmom (at) gmail (dot) com

Elizabeth said...

I haven't read through everyone else's suggestions but I think she should name it "Wonky Donkey Deux" :)

Denise said...

The name Wonky Donkey is adorable...donkeys tend to be a little on the odd side anyhow! I would love to win this for my motherinlaw who has her donkeys Skippy & PB who are definately wonky donkeys! : )

Svetlana said...

Oh, thanks for the chance to win. I LOVE these donkeys sooo much.

Gill said...

Gorgeous!
I would stay with the wonky donkey name!

Tanya said...

I think this is the most adorable fabric and Wonky Donkey is a great name!

Fran said...

Love this fabric range, please enter me even though it's Friday afternoon here and I'm exhausted and lacking in inspiration!!

Courtney said...

Another vote to stay with Wonky Donkey. But it doesn't have to be Wonky Donkey 2, it could be "Another Wonky Donkey" or "Wonky Donkey Strikes Back" or something along those lines. :)

Kellye Quilts said...

LOVE your donkeys! Kinda sounds weird. : )

Brenis said...

Love love love the jack and jenny line!!! Wonky donky is perfect..and i second the idea for "part deux" lol....cracks me up! :)

Jan said...

I vote for Wonky Donkey Part Deux. Love the quilt model choices.

memmens said...

I love the name Wonky Donkey, it's a phrase we use often here. My husbands family looked after donkeys when he was a child and he tells a story of his dad chasing a donkey but it was his dad wearing wellies not the donkey!

Rafael's Mum said...

Wonkey Donkey 2 will do fine. Love her finding the new donkey and love the new quilt. But then I love Kate's pattern's and your fabrics so can't go wrong there !

Karamat said...

Fizzy & Cocoa... what great models for your fabrics!!

Jo Ann said...

That is a great quilt made from some seriously cute fabric! Thank you to both of you for sharing this with all of us!

Erica said...

Love it! I love the gray with all of the colors, so beautiful. I think Wonky Donkey 2 is a great name!

Meredith said...

I would love to win this line! It is so cute!

Brittany Scott said...

LOL ... yes that is a fantastic story. I had forgotten Fizzy had tried to eat the first quilt, that part had me laughing all over again. I think Wonky Donkey 2 .. or too ... is a great name. Thanks for the great giveaway and sharing the great story!

JaneB said...

That quilt is so great! Cocoa is a great model! My son is working on an organic farm where they are using mules and donkeys to do some of the farm work. I think he'd love a quilt with this fabric. How about Donkey Dance for a new quilt pattern name?

Mary Grace McNamara said...

My 7 year old Gracie just cracks up whenever she sees that donkey fabric with the rain boots! She would love it if I made her something with it!

I'd vote for leaving the same name...stick with what works! And it's fun to say too! Wonky Donkey!

Chiska said...

Someone already said it up there, but I like The Wonky Donkey Part Deux....or Strikes Back. I think this may be my all time favorite fabric. I've been collecting fabric for a "rain" quilt. I grew up in the Northwest and now live in the high mountain desert. Rain, boots and donkeys too. Thanks!

Kelly O. said...

I am just in love with this line! and the colours are perfect to make a neutral baby quilt--which I NEED to do! crossing my fingers :)

Megan Wenger said...

those donkeys always remind me of my cousin who has a donkey! so silly.

Allison C said...

I'm a fan of the name Wonky Donkey. Maybe you could call this line Wonky Donkey Jr.

Crystal said...

I like the name - maybe create a line of Wonky Donkey's like Mama, Papa, etc. That's a very generous giveaway - it would be much loved at my house! Thanks for sharing.

mab said...

I like Wonkey Donkey -- definitely keep that part. And, I agree with some other posters that Part Deux would be cute. :)

Thanks for the chance to enter!

Linda said...

'WONKY DONKEY' SURE HAS A RING TO IT-I LIKE IT! THANKS FOR SHARING A SWEET AND GENEROUS GIVEAWAY!

diane said...

What a fun quilt and photo shoot

Marjorie's Busy Corner said...

I think Wonky Donkey 2 is just great!!! Love Cocoa too.

Jenny said...

i think its a fine name!

Marcia W. said...

Wonky Donkey Deux would be a cool variation. Regardless, you must keep Wonky Donkey as the main theme as fits perfectly! Cocoa does look nice and soft. We once had donkies and they were mean yet didn't keep the coyotes away from the calves as intended.

DianeY said...

So cute. I like her suggestion of Too Wonky for a Donkey

Mike Pearson said...

I say keep it as Wonky Donkey 2 :) the name is so cool. Thanks for the chance in the giveaway!

Kelly said...

wonky donkey: the sequel? it's a cute name, i wouldn't change it too much. the fabric is awesome, kate's quilt is awesome, and the the donkey that tried to eat her first quilt is awesome. that's a whole lotta awesome!

supersara20 said...

I love donkeys. I have made my husband promise me that if we ever hit the lottery and buy the ranch of our dreams I will be able to get a donkey (or 2!)

Anya said...

Just too adorable!! Both the quilt donkeys and the live donkey!

emileem said...

I love the name and the fabric! Wondy donkey is so catchy!

Angela said...

hmm...wonkey donkey is a fabulous name. So that's hard to beat. How about donkeys and wellies?

CraftyGardenMom - Tanesha said...

This is just the cutest line Laurie! And I love that Kate found a donkey to model her quilt...so fun.

Michael said...

I would love to make something out of this cute fabric line.

3girls said...

Wonky Donkey 2 is a fun name but you could also call it Donkey Boots or Donkey Goulashes.

bee said...

Jess said...

I love Kate's quilt designs, and that quilt is so perfect for Jack and Jenny!

Lesley said...

Love the Wonky Donkey 2...how neat!

Melissa said...

Great givewaway! Thanks for the chance to win.

Beezus said...

I saw one of the prints from this line at the local fabric shop, but they only had the donkeys on the pink background. I'd love to have an entire set of fat quarters to play with! Besides, I have a thing for donkeys. Here's what I made for my partner in a pin cushion swap: http://www.flickr.com/photos/25602112@N07/7213225808/in/photostream

Cheers! :)

Fran said...

I love these fabrics & Kate's quilts are really lovely too. The donkey models are gorgeous & I love the name Wonky Donkey - I think it's perfect as is. Thanks for the giveaway.

Rachelle said...

Gorgeous fabrics, love the quilt and the name brings to mind a children's book that my boys loved called "The Wonky Donkey".

mirja said...

The fabric makes me remember my late step-father: he used to draw donkeys (horses? he was a lousy artist) with boots on. His donkeys were also smoking a pipe. I must make a wall hanging with your fabric for my little sister (55 yrs!) as we are now the only ones left of our family.

José said...

I love the Jack and Jenny fabric! And the quilt looks good on the donkey :) I have never made a quilt before (always found it old fashioned :)) but the wonkey donkey is great! Thanks for sharing this, I'm planning on making one for my 9-month old son now.

Beth said...

Isn't Kate darling? You, Kate, donkeys, wellies--so many of my favorite things are coming together!

I can't top Wonky Donkey, but some of the suggestions by earlier commenters are pretty darned cute.

Many thanks for the giveaway.

Zuzan said...

Kate comes from where I live. After year or two of blogging this is the first time I have ended up where \i come from.
Love the donkeys, wellies, colours and pattern. It is indeed wonky but suggested Donkey Dudes Dancing or Donkey Duet. Or Donkey Two...
Love the giveaway perhaps donkeys instead of red buses for Llamas

wilai said...

thanks. I am kind of like the name. It is fun and different

WandaFish said...

Patricia said...

sandyb said...

HeeHaw!!! I love donkeys - we used to take care of our neighbors horses when she was sick and she had a donkey named AnnaBelle and she was so much fun and she would talk to you and she always had to roll in the barn alley before she went out after morning and night chores. She is gone now:( but this brings back memories of sweet, sweet AnnaBelle!!!

Thank you for the chance and the memories!!

Erin said...

I'm so glad this fabric got picked up! I can't decide if the donkeys are my favorite or if the llamas are pushing them out of the top spot. Regardless, keep up the fantastic designing!

What a cute quilt. I've already made pjs for my son out of the jack & jenny line. I love this fabric, plus it helps that my children wear wellies in the backyard when they run out to play. This would be so fun to make this quilt with your fabric.

Wonky Donkey is too great of a name to change!! I love the pictures. I worked at the GS Ranch in New Mexico as Burro Wrangler for several years... they are near & dear to my heart!

award said...

I love the donkey theme and the posing Cocoa....He is the perfect model for your line....them boots were made for walking....and cute to boot!!!!

thegoose said...

oh my gosh, how I love this fabric. And since I am finally running out of DS's favorite (the "Urban Circus" elephants), it is good to know that there is something equally marvelous with which I can make things for him.

kitty said...

I love your designs and Jack and Jenny are so cute!
I think "Wonky Donkey" is THE perfect name for this quilt and should not be changed ( whether you call this second version "2" or "part 2" or "again")

goodaim said...

LOVE LOVE LOVE the fabric and the wonkey donkey quilt!!

Binks said...

So cute! I love all your work and this quilt pattern highlights your line perfectly.

The name Wonky Donkey makes me laugh, it's suitable and memorable! :) I love donkeys, I think they are pretty awesome - made better even with boots!

Every time I see the gumbooted donkey it makes me grin!
I like the Wonkey Donkey II name.

I LOVE LOVE LOVE this line!

craftytammie said...

i like the name wonky donkey 2 - and the quilt and fabrics are fab!

Nancy Sue said...

The facial expressions on the models are priceless!! Wonkey Donkey The Sequel was the first thing that popped into my mind. I guess if you called it "Wellie Wonky Donkey" it would sound like it's a donkey made out of chocolate. :) Love the fabric line!!

Tamie said...

I'd love to have some of this fabric. Thanks for the giveaway.

Sarah Craig said...

This is such wonderful fabric, and Kate has of course come up with a beautiful quilt! I do love her stack and slash method!! I'd probably call it Wonky Donkey Redux, just because it sounds funny coming off my tongue.... Thanks for the chance to win!!

Rahel said...

Love your fabrics and bought your book.
Thanks.

Victoria said...

You gotta love a donkey! I think the new pattern should be called Wonky Donkey Dos. Laurie, your fabrics are too fun! Victoria [vlsaustin at hotmail dot com]

Love those quilts, she did such a great job using the fabric.

Julie said...

I love your fabrics so much, I enter every single one of your giveaways, but never do win. I end up having to go buy some. My wallet may not like you as much as I do :P I love the Jack and Jenny collection and it looks great in that quilt! I think Wonky Donkey 2 is a great name for the pattern and I love that she found a donkey to photograph the quilt with!
