Hi Friends! Did you know March is National Quilting Month?
And today is National Quilting Day! How fun.
National Quilting Day
How will you spend today? Are you quilting? Shopping for fabric at the many sales today at the local quilt shops?
I am planning to work on a quilt later today. But first, my Saturday chores and other plans are calling me. I have to go to Pilates and get this body moving and then go buy blinds for my bedroom. And maybe do a little laundry and cleaning.
Then again…..I might skip the laundry and cleaning until tomorrow (cue Scarlett O’Hara!)
Maybe I will go fabric shopping instead!
Surprise Fabric Giveaway!
In honor of National Quilting Day (and month), I have decided to do a surprise fabric giveaway! WOOT!
I have 2 FQ bundles to giveaway- because, if you know me, you know I love FAT QUARTERS! They are my fabric addiction.
To be entered for a chance to win one of these bundles, leave me a comment on this post telling me your favorite color!
Why your favorite color? Today’s prompt on Instagram, as part of the ongoing #igquiltfest, is “favorite color”.
I posted that while I love many colors, my favorite color is blue. And by blue I mean all shades of blue! Though aqua is probably my most favorite.
Reminds of my favorite place to be- the beach!
The giveaway is open until midnight MT, Monday March 20th. The giveaway is open to US residents only- sorry but international shipping is SO much right now!
And yes… a couple of these are from my Luna Mystery quilt! The QAL started this week and I am so excited by everyone who is participating!
Have a lovely national quilting weekend everyone!
These fabrics are beautiful! My favorite color is purple.
I too love Aqua to add pop to my projects.
Georgus fabric I prefer the blue package.
My favorite color is green and then teal colors — these fabrics are beautiful
I love anything blue/teal combination
I live on a farm many miles from the ocean with over 40 horses and sheep, I dream of the water and try to surround myself with its colours
I’ve always said that my favourite colour is blue but lately, I’m saying green. I guess that our favourites can change over time.
My favorite color is also blue. The fabrics are beautiful!
Aqua is actually my favorite color too (red is a close second), but there really aren’t too many colors I don’t like. Part of the fun of quilting (in my opinion) is getting to choose the many color combinations that look right together! Thanks for offering the give-away, and good luck to the other quilters that want to win.
My favorite color is a deep maroon.
My favorite color is green, all shades. It makes me think of things fresh and new. Spring and the awakening plants and trees. The smell of a freshly mown lawn and the air after a rain. Shamrocks and green eyes because I’m a little bit Irish. The deep green of the forest and sometimes the sea.
I really don’t have a favorite color I like them all. This collection is beautiful.
My favorite color is purple.
I love all colors of water. Astor my night at sea or the clear blue of a sun beach day.
I would join the many who say blue is my favorite color; really like it paired with orange!
I like different shades of blue from all colors of water. Astor my night at sea or the clear blue of a sun beach day.
Beautiful fabric colors. My favorite color is blue, I have blue glass everywhere in the house!
I live near the beach in Oregon – blue is my color!
My favorite color has been red for 72 years. I even talked my Dad into painting our rowboat red, but, I had to do the painting. All my life, my second favorite color has been medium blue because that was the color of the lake. I wore a lot of aqua blue growing up as that is the color of my eyes. The fabrics you offer are beautiful. Thank you for all you do to inspire me.
My favorite color is yellow. It’s such a sunny, bright, and fun color.
Any shade of Blue.
Just to be different, my favorite color is rust. I’m a Fall color girl, and like all colors Fall.
What a beautiful palette of fabric!
Blue is a calming color. We all like to sit back and relax under a cozy quilt.
I go by ‘flick’ because I also play the bassoon. My favorite color is GREEN. Green is hard to describe because there are so many of them. Blue gray, yellow, rust, brown, red, …….And there is nothing that can not be put with a green. When in a pinch once I used a certain green instead of a medium light grey to sew a whole quilt. I one noticed.
I love both bundles, but blues tend to be my favorite.
Beautiful fabric!! Blues and greens are my favorite colors, teal being one of my favorite shades.
My favorite color is that not quite blue not quite green. The colors of the oceans, water and sky.
I love the color blue. The batiks are beautiful and would add to my collection for making postcards.
I love blues and teals — but my favorite color is green/jade!
Thank you for all your inspiration!
My favorite color was always blue, sky, water, eyes, all my favorite things. But recently I’m going over to the softer side of pastels peach nougat line along side pastel green with vanilla ice cream. My husband’s favorite color is “Henna Color” – tranlated: Any color – he likes all colors.
My favorite color is rainbow! I love lots of bright colors all together. I love purple but I actually use blue the most in quilts.
Have a hard time deciding. Probably my favorite is purple, but I’ve loved the combination of blue and green forever.
My favorite of all time is Blue. But I have been leaning towards aquas and turquoise. Thank you for this great giveaway. They are gorgeous fabrics!!
My favorite color is lime green!
52 year’s ago when I got married my colors were blue and purple. They haven’t changed. I’ve added more colors but still at the top blue and purple ????

I have always loved red, especially with blue and white in our flag and with green at Christmas.
Thank you for the generous fat quarter give-away..
My favorite color is water in all its glory! I love to sit on a dock by a body of water and listen to the sounds of lapping water and animals and insects that are attracted to it. Wading in rapids and seeing the white caps over the blue stream as it rushes on its way. Then there is the white sand when I wade out into blue surf at the Florida panhandle. The blue water sparkles in the sun and I can relax one muscle at a time. So… all the shades of water and all that reflects in it. I
Gorgeous fabric bundles… I seem to be drawn to aqua colour range but have many other favourite colours.
My favorite color is blue. However, my favorite color combination is blue and green. I cannot wait to see how my Luna mystery QAL turns out. ????

I too love blue… and batiks!
Thanks for the giveaway chance! Blue is my favorite color followed closely by green. BATIKS! Love batiks!
My favorite color is yellow.
I do love all those beautiful soft blues, but they are second to all the beautiful soft purples! Unless, perhaps, the two together?
So hard to choose, but today I’ll go with purple.
I always go for blues and purples. I love your new designs! Hope I win!! Thanks.
My favorite color is blue also. I try to use other colors, but blue always captures my eye first.
I love fat quarters, too. They are so versatile in sewing/quilting. My favorite color is green, pretty much any color or shade.
The fat quarters above are beautiful.
Green, any shade! Blue is also a favorite, but not THE favorite. I’m a middle sister between two blonde, blue-eyed beauties who loved pink. I’m a green-eyed brunette (ha, used to be, anyway!), and I hated pink. Green has always been it for me – grass and leaves and even some flowers – calm and cool and soothing. Thank you for the chance to win a favorite fabric in a favorite color!
Fav color is blueish! I love anything from aqua to blue to teal. To me they are so calming and remind me of calm blue oceans!! With Ohio weather this winter calm blue oceans and beaches right now would be so welcomed!

Hi! Your fabric choices are fantastic! I see that these fabrics have the big BATIK VIBE that I love!! I love greens and some blue shades- especially teal and turquoise! I bought a new house 5 years back and two of the rooms that sold me were the turquoise walls in the kitchen and the light turquoise walls in the master bedroom. I must know what company makes these fabrics! Thanks for putting them on your blog!
My favorite color is shades of lavender.
I love every color, but if I was to look at my fabric bins, it would probably be blue… bright blues to be exact…. But I also do like a nice deep navy.

Hard to choose but if I have to, then my favourite colour is any shade of aqua!
I am a blue lover too.

Hi, my favorite colors re red/orange. They have so much life. I once painted one wall in my rental, red. The landlord had told me it was OK to paint but after I moved, he said he had a hard time finding a ” neutral” color that he could paint over the red. Thanks for asking, Karen
I love blue as well. The ocean is a magical place. Being a sub diver I see some many different shades of blue, it’s incredible!

I like to pair it with aqua, my second favorite.
My favorite color is yellow, but I quilt with all colors. Thank you for the giveaway!
My favorited color is green. It reminds me of a beautiful summer day.
My favorite color is the rainbow – because I cannot pick just one! But, if I had to it would probably be all blues shading into greens.
I love strong colors of nature, blues, greens of land, sea, and sky. Purple and orange in a sunset, as well. Love these batiks!
I love your new fabrics! I love the happy colors you have chosen as they complement the sunshine at 5:30 I am enjoying. Otherwise I tend to like pink and purple combos.
I love greens, especially lime and if it starts leaning towards blue, that’s good too.
Beautiful fabrics! Purple is my favorite color.
My favorite color is pink.
I saw a quilt today at a local guild show that had a teal color background. It was stunning!
I am not sure what my favorite color is. If you had asked me before I started quilting I would have said, navy blue, brown, black. Now when I look at my favorite fabrics (batiks) I see a lot of blue, orange and purple.
What I did today on National Quilting Day…. While you out shopping or cleaning house ????…I selected the fabrics for my mystery quilt!! Yea! The hard part is done!!!!
I’m a winter color person. I like deep burgandy, purple, and deep greens. I’m also a lover of 1930’s prints. Batiks have been a favorite since they were introduced; I now have batiks from around the world….and in my favorite colors!
I have been making projects with a variety of greens to aqua as of late, but love most colors. Whatever catches my eye for the quilt..
I, too, love blue but I was surprised to notice that I’ve never included much blue into quilts!
Thanks for all your generous sharing, Kate.
My favorite color has always been red, along with all its tints and shades. Magenta, rose, pink, coral, . . . ????

Like you blue is my favourite colour-any shade! Your fabrics are just beautiful!
If it is the color in this fabric selection, I would say aqua. Favorite colors are in the warm color range, – bright, red, pink, orange colors.
My favorite color is sky blue. Whenever I’m feeling down and alone, all I have to do is look at the sky and I know God is with me, and I’ll be okay.

It is a difficult choice, but if pressed I would go with forest green. After a long winter green is a welcomed color,
Yellow, in all shades, from gold to cream: sunshine, happy, the yellow in the Ukraine flag (representing their abundance of wheat under a blue sky); closely followed by teal/aqua/turquoise – makes me think of Indian jewelry and the Southwest in general

I am also addicted to fat quarters. I just love them. My favorite color is teal.
I love the color red and it often shows up in the quilts I make.

I love all shades of blue!
My favorite are the BLUES.
beautiful batik and all the colors and patterns are amazing.

My favorite color is purple! I have to make myself choose different colors! Batiks are definitely my favorite fabric to work with!
