Barnyard Counting | Giveaway!

Squeee!! Or maybe I should say oink! Or moo!

I am so excited to get to share my next collection for Robert Kaufman. Barnyard Counting starts shipping June/July 2013 so it will be in quilt shops before you know it! The collection is made up of a bunch of sweet prints that feature barnyard sounds and counting and numbers. Its a nice gender neutral collection and would be a fun choice if you have baby shower gifts on your list to make.


My favorite print in the collection is the multi-directional print that includes all of the animals from the barnyard. There are cows, sheep, pigs, goats, frogs, turkeys ducks, chickens, horses, and a little barn.  I love the checked numbers that are tossed throughout. 

A coordinating panel with 10 boxes perfectly sized for a cheater quilt or a super cute soft book. Blocks would be really cute from these panels too. 


And moo cows in three colors: red, blue and a medium green

And chicks in light blue and a grassy green. Peep peep! 

Text print in red, white and black with all the sounds from the barnyard. 
My future includes some PJ bottoms from the black print. 

All of the coordinates together. I know you guys are going to make some AMAZING quilts out of these prints. Cannot wait to see them!!

You know how much I love it when the team at RK surprises me with a super cute selvage. 
Chicks!? I nearly fell over from excitement. SOOOO cute. 

And now for the giveaway!!

I have 2 FQ sets of Barnyard Counting to giveaway to 2 lucky readers. Just leave me a comment here with ideas for what you might make with Barnyard Counting if you win. I'll choose both winners via random number generator the evening of Monday 5/20/13. Make sure I have a way to contact you and, as always, international entries are welcome!

One last thing! I'm hoping that you might be able to contribute a small donation to help me meet my fund raising goal for the Make A Wish Foundation!! I'm almost there but need some help to raise this last little bit. Make a Wish pays for amazing wish experiences for kids suffering from terminal illness. 

100% of the proceeds raised will go directly towards funding wishes (often the last great experience some of these kids get to have.) 

If I can meet my goal, I commit to rapell (abeseil for those of you not in the US) down the side of a 32 story building here in Austin on June 15. (And yes, I am completely terrified but also excited!) With your help we can make a huge difference in the lives of kids who are so deserving of something really special. So anything you can contribute would be amazing! Donations are being collected here. And if you can't help and know someone who can, please share the link! Thank you for your support!

Wow, I just can't believe your talent for designing these great fabrics. I love the cows!!!! We've got lots of them here in the Netherlands. I would definitely make a quilt for my son, he loves animals.
Thanks for this giveaway!

Deb said...

What adorable fabric..I would make a cute quilt to put in my daughter's hope chest.

Laura said...

That's Such Adorable Fabric! It Will make Great Baby Quilts!

Diane Maxwell said...

I would make two little quilts for my friend Tina's twin boys. She LOVES chickens, and apparently that love for chickens has already rubbed off on the boys.

Marjorie's Busy Corner said...

Oh that is so very cute!! I think I would make pillow cases for my grandsons with this.

memmens said...

Wow this is a gorgeous print, I'm hoping that there will be baby gifts to make later this year for some friends. thanks for the chance

Laurie said...

I would love to makea baby quilt out of this fun, cute, and bright fabric!

Stash Avalanche said...

I've got the Bright and Buzzy alphabet panel and by the looks of it, these numbers would go really well with that in a wonky log cabin quilt.
Thanks for the giveaway!

Reene@Nellie's Niceties said...

It's another cracker of a collection Laurie! I'd make a play mat if I was lucky enough to win. I'd also fussy cut a few of the animals for a long term project I'm planning with some of the critters from your other collections ;)

Little Island Quilting said...

Without wishing to sound like a broken record...I'd make a quilt:-)

And despite not knowing what rappelling is, I will donate tomorrow morning as tucked up in bed now and see the page doesn't do Paypal and my credit cards are in another room!

Juliana Colombo said...

I'd make a book to my little girl, Josefina, and a carpet to play & learn with her!!!

Karen said...

Oh my, those chicks are adorable! Another wonderful fabric line, congratulations! My cousin just had a baby boy a couple of weeks ago, I'd definitely make him a quilt :o)

The Calico Cat said...

not sure exactly how, but they would get used! (I'm a quilter, I make quilts.)

✾Jamie Lee Cooley✾ said...

What a sweet collection! I would love to make my best friend's son a quilt from it. He was born last month.

Trisha Weekes / myfourtrees said...

I absolutely love this line...I have this thing for barns and barnyard animals. I would be so tickled to get to play with this new line! What would I make, gee...I liked the book idea, but would probably make a quilt! Thanks for sharing with us!

Lisa Marie said...

Love your new fabrics! I would make baby quilts to give as gifts which is one of my favorite things to do.

blocksandmore said...

LOVE the text print ! I picture bibs, and burp cloths, and quilt. Very very cute .

Jo said...

What a great fabric you always come up with the most amazing things.I can see all kinds of nursery items made with this fabric!

MeganW said...

How cool!

I totally see little dresses and collared shirts from the cows and chicks prints. And I love the idea of a soft book from the pannel print.

Best of luck... with both the fund raising and the rapelling!

Amy's Crafty Shenanigans said...

Ooo awesome fabric - you are so clever!! A picnic blanet that folds into its own pillow pocket would be fun to make!!!

craftykat said...

I would make some soft toys - like a rectangular cube out of the numbers! I love the text print as well - would incorporate it into a baby quilt

Samantha said...

Cute fabric! I would make a baby quilt for sure!

allierae said...

That birdie selvedge is the cutest thing I've ever seen! I have a few friends who just announced pregnancies so maybe some baby quilts or hospital care pack tote bags would get made with these adoreble fabrics.

Elizabeth said...

It's nothing new and exciting, but I'd make a wall hanging for my son's nursery. I'd also make a mug rug for myself though with any of the chick fabrics... we recently got our first real chicks and I've been obsessed ever since :)

Thanks for the chance to enjoy your new line!!

Heather B said...

What a fun line!! My daughter is learning her animal sounds! She's got Moo down! I would love to make a little soft book for her and definitely a quilt! I could see a cute Polaroid block quilt! It would be so cute! Maybe name it My First Trip to the Farm! Thanks for the chance to win!

i definitely think baby quilts are the way to go with this gorgeous fabric!! i always have a ton of friends expecting, so I would have lots of opportunity to use it!

Allison C said...

I'm expecting in August so I'm making tons of baby stuff. I think the text prints would make really cute square block toys and also as simple patchwork baby quilts.

Mary D said...

A reading quilt for my adopted kindergarten class with books about the animals to read on the quilt would be so cute. And then pillow cases decorated with the material to match.

Such a cute line. I have a new grand-daughter on the way. These prints would be cute on so many things.

Chiska said...

My baby is just starting to move around and I think this would be great to catch her attention and perhaps (for a moment or two) avoid all the other things I wish she wouldn't get into.

liberal sprinkles said...

Hi. The fabrics are too cute! A picnic blanket is definitely called for.

Alyce @ Blossom Heart Quilts said...

Oh my goodness, my daughter would go nuts! She's in the animal/noises stage where every animal spotted (real or picture) must be named and the sound made. I'd have to make her a cushion!

Gina said...

I think I would have to make a barn then fussy cut the animals and stuff them to use in the barn. This line would also be fun to fussy cut and use on a felt board to "tell" stories. It would also make a cute quiet book and quilt! Great job and thanks for your good work for Make a Wish!

JaneB said...

Oh my goodness those are the sweetest prints. Love, love love the selvedges! I think I'd have to start with a quilt for my nearly two year old nephew. He's a farm boy, so this fabric is perfect for him. I love the idea of pjs, too, for me.

Margaret said...

These fabrics are absolutely lovely. I would make new chair cushions for my kitchen. They would match my cows and pigs that I have now.

Beth said...

So cute! I have a niece and nephew who need quilts from me...and these prints might get them clamoring to come visit us on the farm!
