Quilt market giveaways!

My head is still reeling with everything I saw and everyone I met at the International Quilt Market in Minneapolis a few weeks back. I'm pulling together all of my thoughts for a longer piece in our next issue, but in the meantime I came home with some amazing items given to me specifically for our FQ readers.

First up, I had the pleasure of meeting Liesl Gibson, the founder and chief designer of the hugely popular oliver + s line of children's wear patterns. Even before heading to market, I was really looking forward to seeing Liesl's new fabric line for Moda, called "City Weekend". It did not disappoint. The fabrics are as lovely as Liesl herself.

I really enjoyed speaking for a bit with Liesl ... and even scored an invitation to the oliver + s studio for a tour the next time I am in my hometown of Brooklyn, New York! Imagine my surprise both when I discovered that Liesl is a Fat Quarterly reader and when she reached under her market table and gave me a jelly roll of City Weekend to give away to one of our readers.

Thanks, Liesl!

Another display that made a huge impression on me was featured in the Blue Underground Studios booth. I've long been a fan of this company's patterns, referred to as "cutting edge patterns for the modern quilter" on their website. Take a look at the bold colors and patterns on display:

Blue Underground Studios

And get a load of this ... after talking to the folks at Blue Underground about Fat Quarterly and our readers, they supplied us with a bundle of their patterns to give away to a lucky winner. That's 9 patterns in all ... an $80+ value!

To enter this giveaway, simply leave a comment on this post. Let us know what new & upcoming fabric lines you're most excited about, and which you'd like to see us use in an upcoming issue of Fat Quarterly. We'll pick two winners and announce them next Sunday, June 13th.

Also, our Wish Upon a Quilt giveaway for an autographed copy of Sandi Henderson's new book is still open. Head over here to enter to win that prize.

Big thanks again to oliver + s and Blue Underground Studios!

    ReplyDelete
  80. I'm looking forward to Lizzy House Castle Peeps - love the strong graphics and colour schemes given I have a boy's quilt on my list of things to do. That said, I love gathering fabrics from many lines to see how they can pop and compliment eachother in a single project - it also appeals to the bower bird in me!! Thx for the chance to keep my creative juices flowing.

  178. There are so many different lines that I am excited about. I think right now I would pick Sparkle All the Way (yes, I know it's Christmas but it's going to be 110 here this week and I can dream of cooler weather, can't I?)

  181. Hard to narrow down to two, so here are my top three picks, all using FQ bundles. Blue Jay Pretty Bird - Early Bird by Cosmo Cricket for Andover Fabrics - Stitching Tangled Threads. There are several others that I would also like to see use in projects.

  188. Okay, there are several that I am totally pumped for, but Tufted Tweets and Castle Peeps are at the top. Those would both be great for a fussy cut quilt. Would love to see a quilt featuring fussy cutting!

    Great giveaway!
