Sunday Stash and a Giveaway!

Although I don't "do" the Black Friday sales, I do have some new additions to the fabric collection to share with you all today.

My "12 Days of Christmas" purchase came from Craftsy.  A bargain on the entire "Simply Color" collection from V and Co.  Not assigned to a project yet, but keep reading for a possible use of this lovely set of fat quarters!


I really need to keep the receipts when I order stuff online.  I can't remember where I bought this fat quarter collection.  I do know I want to use it for a quilt for the next sailor on the USS George Washington to get promoted or earn the Navy Warfare Badge.  It's called "Seven Wonders" and it's the newest from Parson Grey for Free Spirit fabrics.  The companion print is called "Clouds," and it just makes me think of My Little Sailor's photo of the Indian Ocean.


Front Range Modern Quilt Guild is participating in a challenge next month using the Madrona Road collection.  I ordered my FQ bundle from my favorite etsy shop, freshsqueezedfabrics:


We're making pillows with some of these fabrics.  I can't wait to find out for whom I'm making a pillow, because I already have an idea for my design!

Did she say giveaway?

Yes.  Yes she did.  And what, pray tell, would the giveaway be?  How about a membership to Amy Gibson's 2013 block of the month program, the Sugar Block Club?  You may know that Amy was the designer for Crafsty's 2012 Block of the Month program.  Probably the most successful BOM program in the history of quilting, it had thousands of participants worldwide!


Here's you chance to continue playing along with Amy.  All you have to do is:

  1. Be a follower of this blog
  2. Comment on this post, telling me the name of your favorite quilt block
  3. Be sure your comment is linked to an email address or include it in your comment
  4. Giveaway ends next Sunday, December 16 at noon MST
  5. Worldwide entries welcome!


BTW -- that Simply Color FQ bundle?  That's what I'm going to use for my own Sugar Block Club quilt!

  6. I've just heard about the sugar block club this week, thank you for the giveaway! My favorite quilt block, well though I am just in the process of cutting out the pieces and haven't had to sew one together ;), the New York Beauty variations are my favorite at the moment!

  7. Wow, I'm not sure I have a favorite quilt block -- I always like the one I saw last. I'm fickle like that. But I like string quilts, and log cabin, and (to look at) flying geese. I am a follower.

  12. I am a follower which I am new to this and not quite sure how it works. I really like the block from your Scrappy Sunday page that uses nine squares with the Kona snow border and then 6 more squares around each. How do you match your color palettes so well? That is my weakness; I am new to quilting, but maybe it will get easier? And, please enter me in the giveaway. I seem to be lost with posting a comment and being able to use my name so my email address is mwintz1@yahoo.com
    Hopefully, I can figure it out soon. Marie

    ReplyDelete
  22. What a great idea for a giveaway prize! My favourite block at the moment would be Blackford's Beauty but I haven't met too many I don't like (with the exception of anything with too many flying geese in it!)

  32. My favorite block -- oooh that is a hard one. My first thought would be log cabin, but lately I've made more star blocks. I really like that Dresden heart block you showed. I'd like to do that for a baby quilt--right after we finish Easy Street. Thanks for a chance to win your great giveaway. I am already a follower of yours.

  33. I love the ever versatile log cabin. I am a follower with my google reader's subscribe button on my bookmarks bar-the second best button google came up with; the first being the Next button that just pops me onto the next subscribed-to blog. Not in the reader but the actual blog itself. Way better reading experiences.

  34. It's hard to pick just one block. Maybe the Carpenter's Wheel or Swoon block. HSTs are so versatile! New follower on GFC. Thanks for the giveaway! You must know Melissa if you are in the Front Range MQG. :)

    ReplyDelete
  35. I'm a follower and my favorite block is the Swoon!
    I've got a set of The Sweetest Thing that I think would be great for the Sugar Block Club!

  45. This is a great giveaway. One of my favorite blocks is Jacobs Ladder - it's only four patches and half square triangles and it is a quick block to make and can be made in any size without too much fuss or math. With just a little maneuvering you can change the block into countless others. Thanks for the opportunity.
