Fat Quarters Bundle Giveaway!

When I saw this fabric I fell in love all over again! Just look at the fabulous colors! Bright, cheery and makes me want to start a quilt!



I like the background of this one. The diamonds give it a little depth and yet are not overpowering to the floral details.


Who doesn't like dots?? That's what I thought. Not a soul.


Again diamonds, but even more subtle in the background.



Pretty, pretty, pretty!

This Giveaway is sponsored by Down Shadow Lane. If you are a quilter or know someone who is you must...yes, must check out her fabric choices. There are hundreds!!!

Anyway, back to the prize! This Giveaway is for 4 fat quarters, you will receive one of each color. Fabric is 100% cotton and a fat quarter measures 18" x 21/22". This fabric is Patty Young Andalucia Collection for Michael Miller fabrics


Down Shadow Lane also has another store which is Fabric Affinity.
Which is your favorite fabric from each of her stores? What would you make with these fat quarters? You may enter once for each question. :) I am feeling generous today.


Spread the Love,

I am so in for this one. Wonderful. From Down Shadow Lane, my fave is Fat Quarter Bundle of 4 - Amy Butler - Coriander Collection & from Fabric Affinity it's 1/2 yd Bundle of 4 Amy Butler Daisy Chain Set 1 in Turquoise. I didn't realize I love Amy Butler so much.

Jan said...

I have some craft ideas, I'm dying to make, pincushions is one.

Susan said...

I love the daisy chain SET... yes, I can't pick just one fabric. ;) These would be awesome for quilting. I need to start a new one soon.

grendelsmom said...

Oh, those are delicious! I have so many projects in mind that these would work for - quilty things, new oven mitts, a spring handbag ....

From Down Shadow Lane I like the Tina Givens Petal/Blue;
The Amy Butler Coriander is my fave from Fabric Affinity.

All of them are really nice though!

mariel said...

I would make a bag of some sort to show off the beautiful colors.

I like Heather Bailey's Pop Garden and Bijoux @ Down Shadow Lane and Robyn Pandolph's Floral Stripe @ Fabric Affinity.

Becky said...

I like Alexander Henry Jewel Mobile in Natural from Fabric Affinity and Zipadee Zoo by Beverlyann Stillwell in Down Shadow Lane.

Too Cute!

Whitney said...

I am in the midst of making a quilt with the Amy Butler Fabrics. It looks like they have some of those, too. :)

MMMadrid said...

It is so hard to choose favorites. All of this fabric is amazing. I love the Whimsy Zipadee Zoo and on the second site I like the Tina Givens Beatrice in Charleston. The black tulips on yellow is such a unique and beautiful color combination!

MMMadrid said...

If I won I would also make some pillows. I have a new grey couch that could really use some color! Thanks for the chance Liz.

Whitney said...

Breezy's mom said...

I would try to make a small wall-hanging for my daughter's room.

Shelley said...

I'm a quilter and love the new trend in quilting fabric lately...the bolder design and color. My fav from the Down Shadow Lane was an Alexander Glass fab called Jewel Mobile in Natural...I could just picute making a nursing bib of it. In the Fabric Affinity, I chose an Amy Butler fab called Sweet Jasmine in brown.

Shelley said...

I really do like the new trend in fabrics lately...large motif, bold colors. I would probably make cosmetic cases with these for my girly girls! They are lovely!

Lolli said...

It was so hard to pick a favorite! I was drooling on my mouse! But....I think the Amy Butler August Fields in Browns and Blues might just be IT!

karen m. said...

So many gorgeous fabrics! I like all of the Echino by Etsuka Furuya patterns most. Thank you!

karen m. said...

I love tote bags and would probably make bags for some moms and their girls for fun adventures. Thank you!

Kebi Cedawna said...

I have an egg-money style quilt top that needs a backing and to be quilted. The 'Peonies in Yellow and Brown' fabric from Down Shadow Lane is my favorite, it would make a fabulous backing for my quilt. The prices on that site are quite reasonable, thanks for sharing!

Kebi Cedawna said...

Extra Entry:
If I had these fat quarters I would encorporate them into a quilt for myself for once. I've given all the quilts I've made so far to family members as gifts. I love that print too much to give it away! :)

Gene Black said...

Entry 1: From Downshadowlane: Amy Butlers Nigella - Primrose in Aqua is awesome.

Entry 2: From Fabricaffinity, I just have to say Alexander Henry Home Decor - Afternoon Delight in Charcoal is so charming.
Entry 3: I would love these FQs to use as the beginings of a quilt for my great-niece.

Tracy said...

Just ran across your blog...LOVE IT!! :)
My two fabric lines from the two stores are: Tina Givens Fairy Tip Toes and

I LOVE Heather Baliey's Pop Garden line and would die for a fat quarter bundle from Fabric Affinity! I've been seeing that Echino Japanese Import Fabric around alot and a half yard bundle from Down Shadow Lane would make up into a nice quilt!

Jenna Z said...

These fabrics look like they would make wonderful gift bags or water bottle holders! I've been making a lot of little fat quarter gift bags, simply sew to fat quarters together wrong sides together, flip right side out and sew across each corner to make an octagon. Thread ribbon through the four edges and tie together to make a little pouch. Perfect!

lindanuts said...

Amy Butler Daisy Chain in Rose. I know it was the first fabric mentioned but I did look through and it really was my favorite!

KF said...

Wow - Down Shadow Lane is a treasure trove! Is it cheating to say I'd like the $13 scraps collection? I like to be inspired by fabrics I didn't expect. Of course, anything by Denyse Schmidt would be great, too! At Fabric Affinity, I like Alexander Henry Coriander in Turquoise.

KF said...

From the fat quarters, how about some rice bags? I made some for some cottage guests last weekend and they loved their cozy warmth! (So much that they ran to the fabric store to make a second batch!) It's fun to make stuff for others.
