Moda Blog Hop: My Turn

Today is my turn in the Moda blog hop and I'm pretty excited.
As the theme for the blog hop is Hometown Buzz, I get to tell y'all about where I live, Austin, Texas. I really love my town and I do happen to think it is one of the best places to live, certainly in Texas, and probably in the US. So, I won't have any problem extolling its virtues.
I'm also psyched to share a free PDF block pattern and giveaway fabric. Because, who doesn't love that?
Rather than write you an essay about Austin, complete with topic sentence and three supporting paragraphs, as well as a well-stated conclusion (can you tell I have a kid in school?), I thought I would make a list of 5 of my most favorite things about Austin.
Here it is, in descending order:

5. Until his sad and untimely death recently, Leslie Cochran, usually known as just Leslie, ran for mayor of my fine town, always campaigning in outfits that featured his trademark leopard print thong.

4. Having an amazing trail that winds its way around the Colorado River right in the middle of town.
Last Saturday's buzz on the Town Lake trail: Did you see Lance (Armstrong) running on the trail?
3. More Tex-Mex restaurants than Starbucks. That's really what you want on every corner.
2.  Live music, baby! Can you say Austin City Limits music festival AND South by Southwest? And that doesn't even count all the minor music festivals like the Keep Austin Weird Music Fesitval.

And...the number one reason I love Austin:
Hello! QuiltCon is here in February of 2013. How cool is that?

Another reason I'm excited to be a part of the blog hop is that it gives me an opportunity to tell and show you a bit about my new line, Simple Marks.
This shot actually features most, but not all of the colorways and patterns in my new line. My first collection, a stitch in color, included a cheater cloth which was incredibly fun....and popular. This collection has two. The prints are still playful and energetic, but the colors are a bit more fall-like. Perfect because these fabrics will be available in stores and online in November. Who coordinates these things? :)
To celebrate the hop, new fabrics, both mine and by the other talented designers at Moda, and just cause, the terrific folks at Moda are offering up this simple, yet contemporary block pattern for you to make.
Click here to get the PDF of the instructions for the Sew Sweet Sampler. I'm working on a mini quilt with four of these blocks and my  mind is already planning how I'm going to supersize it.

As for the giveaway; check out these goodies:
I've got a charm pack to give away as well as two, 2 1/2" charm packlets(that is what you call teeny charm packs, right?). So, I'm going to pick two winners, one for the 5" charm squares and a second for the pair of 2 1/2" charm squares.
Now, it's your turn, leave a comment and I'll announce the winner in a few days.

Packlets, not to be confused with Chicklets, right? lol. :D
Thank you for hosting the hop! Very jealous that your hometown is hosting Quiltcon this year :)
I hope that guy (we'll call him, "Thong Man") didn't get in as mayor! Holy cow!
Your post made me laugh this morning. Thank you :)

Love reading all the different blogs from the designers. Nice to know a little bit about your home town and life. Marathon running and designing fabric, hand dye--what do they all have in common! Love the colrs and shapes on your fabric

Simple Marks looks like a fun new fabric line. Thanks for the chance to win.

I could go for some Tex-Mex right now, it is lunch time. I really like your fabric too.

Siobhán said...

I had to laugh at the mayoral candidate--too funny! We have our own guy like that in town, though he doesn't run for mayor. He does have a FB page dedicated to him, his business-in-the-front, party-in-the-back mullet, and the yellow rain coat he wears no matter what the weather. Tex Mex at every corner? I am insanely jealous. It's been 2 years since I've been back in the US, which means it's been 2 years since I've had proper Mexican food. Oh, how that kills me.

Cloudmom said...

Love your new line...I made 2 quilts this summer with your A stitch in color line. They were vibrant!

Goody Family said...

Visited Austin last year, had ribs at The County Line - oh so yummy, and watched the bats fly out from under the bridge. Such a fun town to visit!

Gwen said...

We visited Austin a couple years ago and had a blast! We were staying with some friends in San Antonio, and drove over to Austin to see Jon Dee Graham and James McMurtry play at the Continental Club-- FUN night!! We stayed at the Austin Motel in one of their themed rooms-- not sure, but I think it was maybe Egyptian theme or something like that?... We saw Zilker Park-- loved it!! Ladybird Johnson Wildflower Center (got locked in the tower when they closed for the day! LOL) We missed getting to see the Congress Avenue Bridge bats, so we'll have to do that next time :-)

Oh, thanks for the giveaway!! I was so caught up in remembering all the Austin fun that I almost forgot! :-)

Laura K said...

Thank you for the tour of Austin! I think we lost a lot of people here in Utah to you when the Samsung manufacturing plant opened up. Austin sounds like a fun place!

Lynda said...

Your new line looks great!

Polly said...

My hometown is a little town in Southern CA, Bellflower. It was a GREAT place to grow up in the 50's and 60's, but you wouldn't want to live there now. Sad. It was a Dutch dairy community. The saying was, "no flower like Bellflower" because of the distinct dairy smell. Main street going through town, the Woolworth's lunch bar, so many wonderful memories.

mjb said...

Such a fun peek! I need to use my stitch in color!

Kat said...

I have lived near Austin for a couple of years and I think you are so right. I loved it.
