FQ Bundle Giveaway from The Intrepid Thread!

*This giveaway is now closed. Brenda is the winner and she has been emailed!*
 
Today, I'm celebrating many things! I've started booking speaking and teaching engagements for 2015, and I recently gained 1000+ Instagram followers. Plus, it's Sew Mama Sew Giveaway Day and my 25th birthday is next week (I've got a post started already about that). So, woohoo for happy things!


I'm teaming up with The Intrepid Thread to offer one winner a 12-fat quarter bundle of these wintery fabrics, curated by yours truly. Thank you so much to Julie for offering this amazing prize! I've been happily shopping at The Intrepid Thread for years. I'm always impressed with their customer service and selection, in case you want to stop by and thank them yourself!

The Intrepid Thread

I based the colors of the bundle off of this gorgeous print from Anna Maria Horner's new Honor Roll (love the purple!). I balanced the brights out with blacks, grays, and two similar-but-different-enough-to-look-cool-together low volume prints. Finally, I added in the Pearl Bracelets as an extra "pop." Now, the exciting part: for every month of 2015, I'll be sharing a month-inspired bundle from my fabric stash and how I put it together (I might make it a linky party every month, with prizes, if you're interested... so let me know!). Curating fabric bundles is so fun, right?


Here's all the fabrics in the bundle - some of these are favorites of mine that just happen to go together! I seriously think a quilt with these fabrics would be so pretty! I might just have to make one myself...





Cuboid in Cobalto (Geometric Bliss) 
Atomic Influx in Perse (Utopia)
Pearl Bracelet in Red

http://www.sewmamasew.com/2014/12/giveaway-day-sewing-craft-supplies-fabric-patterns-etc/

So, if you'd like to be in the running to win these amazing fabrics:
  • Please leave a comment answering the following: What sewing-related things are you looking forward to in 2015? (It could be a guild event, quilt finish, retreat, BOM, fabric line... anything - you only need one to enter!) I have a list, besides what I already mentioned: QuiltCon/meeting my IG friends IRL/meeting Anna Maria Horner and taking her class, finishing my medallion quilt, and guild swaps! Oh, and AMH's new fabric line, of course.

  • My followers get an extra entry (Instagram, Bloglovin, Feedly, email, etc. - just leave a second comment about how you follow).
The giveaway will end on Friday, December 12 at 8 PM EST. It is open to anyone in the whole wide quilty world. I'll choose a winner using the Random Number Generator and I will email them. Please understand I will not be able to respond to all comments during giveaway week. Thanks and have so much fun browsing/entering giveaways! And thank you, as always, for all of your support!

  16. Yes to QuiltCon!!! Woop woop! Hopefully the fact that I'm not nearly so effusive in real life and am terribly sarcastic and won't scare anyone off. Here's my current list for 2015: Finish Museum Medallion, TARDIS quilt, mini for a swap, selvage skirt, portrait quilt for a show, another mini for a swap and a baby quilt. And maybe make that blue and teal quilt for my bed FINALLY. Man commissions take a up a lot of my time, ha.

  63. My goal for 2015 is to become "one" with my new Bernina. Of course, I love Intrepid Thread and am fortunate to visit the store in person from time to time. With all the goodies they have to offer, I will be able to make wonderful projects this coming year - just must force myself to use my NEW Bernina, rather than my ol' faithful Bernina 1230, who will of course always be my "best friend". Isn't it weird to feel the alliance with a machine - having my 1230 for over 20 years, I can't help but feel I am betraying her with the New little chickadee! ahahha

But hey, they lie in wait til my rotary cuttery and the perfect pattern surface! Thank you for the hand picked/curated bundle. Yep, beauty of a quilt it will make.
