More for Me Monday | Erin McMorris' "Irving Street" flannels!

We're back with another edition of "More for Me Monday", where we offer you, our readers, the chance to win some fabulous new fabric.

Erin McMorris Irving Street flannels for giveaway

Today, our good friend Erin McMorris is back with her brand new line, Irving Street. (Houses on fabric? Yes, please!)

Here in North Carolina, we're finally starting to feel the nip of fall in the air, so it's high time to start thinking about working with flannels. Lucky for us, Erin has chosen to release Irving Street in some of the softest, smoothest flannel I've ever felt.

We here at Fat Quarterly were most excited to see Erin's bird print from her first line, Park Slope, re-released in some new colors as part of Irving Street.

We have a fat quarter bundle of the entire line to give away to one lucky reader. Would you love to get your hands on some of this yummy flannel? Simply leave a comment below and tell us a little bit about the Irving Street in your imagination. Who lives there? What kind of shops? What's the weather like? Who's attending the Irving Street block party? Be creative!

  14. I adore Erin McMorris' fabrics, so this new collection is a must on my list. Irving Street in my imagination would have all locally-owned, independent shops. There would be outdoor seating at the coffee shop and the deli. There would be an ice cream parlor. There would be a boutique that sold locally-produced handmade goods on consignment. There would be an art gallery too, which would have open house on Friday nights. All of my bloggy sewing friends would live there too! Oh yeah, the weather would be 60s to 70s and sunny with a dry climate (no humidity or snow!)

  19. I love Erin McMorris!

    Irving Street in my imagination would always be sunny with birds singing, a gentle breeze and the smell of fresh coffee and baking bread in the air. Everyone would be wearing a smile and there would be no traffic. Lots of cafes and interesting little shops..... I wish I was there now!

  27. the irving street in my imagination would be very colourful, all the houses would be a different colour of the rainbow, everybody would love all things crafty, and we could all sew, knit and crochet together. Since everybody loves crafts the shops would be fabric shops (with the best fabrics) and wool shops, oh how fun would that be.

    thanks for the giveaway

  30. I'm not reading any other comments so I don't lose my own ideas. I'm walking down one street here....here are the shops in order: quilt shop, bakery, ice cream store, quilt shop, florist, quilt shop, with a combo quilt/yarn/scrapbooking shop at the end of the street. *S*

  34. The weather is sunny, the people are friendly and the houses all neat and tidy. The grass in he square is neatly trimmed, no litter and well behaved children. All the dogs are playing together happily, with people sitting talking on the benches. the scented flowers are in bloom so the air smells wonderful. The shops are all open. with the chocolate shop and the bakers taking pride of place with the most fabulous quilt shop close by. Sigh - can I move there now???

  40. If it's flannel, then I must be living there! (Also my friends and family, which would explain the bit of wonkiness, lol.) There is also at least three fabric stores and a cheese shop (for my border collie).

  41. I have an Irving story. My husband and took a driving vacation to the Atlantic provinces more than 30 years ago. We noticed a lot of Irving gas stations so we started a game - who sees the Irving first. To this day we're still playing although it has morphed into any written Irving - the name in film credits, a street name, whatever. Needless to say, winning an Irving Street fabric bundle would give me a big POINT.

  52. I can't quite believe my luck park slope birds on flannel - how lovely! Irving Street, facing the park, lots of trees, no dogs or v conscientious dog walkers (I hate poo on my children's shoes!), lots of lovely people and no cars so we can all hang out and play all day (you did say in my imagination!).
    Thanks for the chance to win.

  53. My Irving Street is lined with pretty buildings painted in blues, greens, red & yellow. They each have front porches, even the shops, and big shade trees line the street. The windows gleam in the bright sun. The folks who live and work on Irving Street are all creative. They exude with talent & originality. The shops are lacking in nothing; every item that these creative-minded folk is here in two short blocks; no Internet shopping is needed! Once a month, each household exhibits their most recent creations. Quilts hang from the porches & in shop windows; newly created handbags & apparel billow gently in the breeze; the trees are covered in sparkling jewelry pieces and sculptures line the sidewalks. Hearts are happy as they admire one another’s work and glean fresh ideas for their creative juices!
