Second Giveaway of the Year

I was going to title this post, "First Giveaway of the Year," but then I realized that I had a giveaway on Monday, January 3 to promote my new pattern, A Wedding Quilt for Joseph and Annie. Well, no matter, because fate has stepped in to make giveaway #1 a segue to giveaway #2.
The purpose of today's giveaway is to introduce you to a new and wonderful sponsor, Marmalade Fabrics. This terrific online store carries many of the cottons you and I have come to love for contemporary quilting and crafting. Even better though, Tammy at Marmalde Fabrics also stocks some harder to come by, but amazingly beautiful fabrics like these organic cottons form Daisy Janie.
Here's where the segue part comes in. By way of introduction to you all, my lovely readers, Tammy is giving away a fabric/pattern treat. The pattern she's giving away is a copy of A Wedding Quilt for Joseph and Annie and 3 of the Kona cotton colors used in my sample version of the pattern. That's the pattern plus 3/4 yard pieces of Kona cotton in Mango and Coral as well as a 1/2 yard piece in Tomato.
 And many of the other colors seen in the sample (sewing circle link, how about that?) are available at Marmalade Fabrics, including Orange, Ash, and Coal.
As they say in the lottery commercials, you can't win if you don't play, so leave a comment and see if today(or tomorrow) is your lucky day. I'll take comments through Sunday at 8:00pm CST and announce the winner on Monday.
Good luck!

I agree, solids are so difficult to find especially in this country where quilting is not so popular.

RWL said...

I'm not usually someone who likes to replicate patterns exactly but I'm in love with the colors you used for this pattern - may have to make the exact one! Thanks for the giveaway!

I just organized all of my fabric - a new year's resolution - and I am really lacking in the oranges, so this would be a great boost! Happy New Year and thanks for hosting the giveaway!

rhymeswithspoon said...

Beautiful colors! I've only recently come around to the value of having solids in my stash. Although I've sworn off buying fabrics this year, I've left the door slightly open to purchase solids for sashing and quilt backs.

I never seem to buy solids... When I have cash to spend on fabric, I usually over compensate and buy notng but prints! Maybe winning this giveaway would break my cycle :)

Bethany said...

I am trying to use more solids in my work....for some reason I always lean towards the prints!

jenny said...

Kona Coral is perhaps my favorite Kona color.

And interesting that you share the Albers as inspiration, as I have made two quilts that are mostly-copies of Albers art, one of a Anni textile and one of a Josef glass work.
