Selecting fabric combinations and color arrangements is one of my favorite stages in the quilting process. So a few months ago, when my friend Bernie asked if I would be interested in putting together a Blogger Bundle of fabric for her Etsy store Needle & Foot, of course I said yes! Today I’m excited to introduce you to the bundle I put together.
While this bundle is versatile enough that any one of the fabrics could shine, there is definitely a star of the show in my mind, and that’s the Tartan Field in Midnight print from Bountiful, designed by Sharon Holland for Art Gallery Fabric (top left in the photo above). I selected this entire bundle based up on that one print. I’ve had my eye on it ever since Sharon first revealed her Bountiful fabric line peeks, and there’s just something about the grid work paired with the subtle colors, a touch of geometry and a good dose of nature (it’s the top down view of a garden, right?) that really makes my quilty heart sing.
The other fabrics have all been carefully selected from Bernie’s shop to coordinate and complement Sharon’s print, and I love how the colors of all of the other fabrics mesh so well with it.
The bundle includes (from top down in the photo above):
- Sashiko Florette Teal, from Wild Bloom, by BariJ for Art Gallery Fabric
- Color Weave Textured Solid in Blue, made by P&B Textiles
- Twinklestar Berry, from Garden Dreamer, by Maureen Cracknell for Art Gallery Fabric
- Tartan Field Midnight, from Bountiful, by Sharon Holland for Art Gallery Fabric
- Numbered in Grasshopper, from Seventy-six, by Alison Glass for Andover Fabric
You didn’t think I would put together a bundle of fabric without a single Alison Glass print, did you?! hah!
Just for fun, these tulips had to join the fun since spring is not even close to appearing here in midcoast Maine yet, and I was in dire need of some cheer. Aren’t they luscious?!
Now, for the giveaway! Today I’m flying across the country to Pasadena for QuiltCon, but I thought it would be fun to kick off my QuiltCon adventures with a blog giveaway. Bernie has generously offered this bundle of five (5) fat quarters to one of my lucky readers.
