Did you see the Fat Quarter Idol contest over at Sew Mama Sew?
This is a whole lot of fun. You need to virtually select 12 fabrics from their shop using Pinterest. Each week there is a theme for the bundle. I love coordinating fabrics, so this contest is perfect for me. And what is to win? Well, being mentioned on their blog and a Fat Quarter bundle of the 12 fabrics you’ve selected. Wow! The biggest difficulty is that you don’t get to touch the fabric and see it with your own eyes.
When I saw this last week, I couldn’t stop my-self from creating my bundle right away. The theme was Sweet Child of Mine. You can see it here.
And guess what? I’m in the top 10 finalists. You can go at Sew Mama Sew! to vote for the ones you prefer. There is some really nice ones that would make lovely child quilts.
This weeks theme is Meet Me Up at the Picnic! I couldn’t resist participating a second time. The first thing that came to my mind when I thought about picnic was a plaid blanket. The Grace’s Garden Cool Dusk from the Reunion fabric collection by Sweetwater for Moda has a gingham pattern in the background. This fabric combined with the Daisy Dots in Green and Turquoise from the Flea Market Fancy fabric collection designed by Denyse Schmidt for Free Spirit Fabrics inspired me this bundle.
I can wait to see what everyone comes up with and what will be next week’s theme.
