Marjorie's Busy Corner said...

my FQ Bundle....hmmmmmmmmmm; well, I love soft minty greens....maybe add soft lilac, and pink like the icing on that cupcake. Got to have a soft summer yellow in there too.Then throw something rich in for balance....some type of burgundy with rich golds of something in it.

Fat Quarter bundle - water and seaside - I love the colors of sand and sea.

B Greene said...

Love the prizes - thanks for the giveaway!

B Greene said...

My idea for a FQ Bundle - stripes! You see polka dots, but rarely a bundle of stripes.

robin said...

I stopped by! :) Thanks for the giveaway.

Rileigh said...

Thanks for the button! Adding it to my blog now :)

Rileigh said...

I would love to see some TCU Purple and White bundles!!!

robin said...

Hmm - how about greens/browns/tans? Or red/aqua/white? Turquoise/brown?

Ann Michelle said...

Would love to see fabric from different regions. There are wonderful Alaskan and Southwest prints that I've seen in my travels.

Ann Michelle said...

I'm new to your site and love what I've seen!

Tracy said...

I stopped by, nice giveaway!

Tracy said...

Hmmmmm....not sure about a FQ bundle, you always put together such great bundles! Guess sometimes I'm looking for some stripes at times!

teachpany said...

Cute give away prizes! I stopped in from Facebook.

teachpany said...

I love an assortment from a collection in a FQ bundle, or coordinates. I saw one that was a rainbow of batiks, and others that were all food related. It doesn't have to be all one manufacturer, but those are nice too. You have some good collections. Keep up the good work!

Melissa said...

Stopping by from Facebook. I hope I win!

Maria Kievit said...

I stopped by to read your blog. Thanks for the giveaway.

Melissa said...

My idea for a fat quarter bundle would be something with antique items such as cameras, sewing machines, vintage postcards. Something very curio.

Sandy D said...

Just joined your blog and I am enjoying it.

Cecilia said...

My idea would be ... DOTS! I love them.

Sandra said...

Thank you for the chance to win.

Sandra said...

Would love to see a deep rich purple combined with gold colors.

Sandy D said...

I think a fat quarter bundle of batiks as I have not many batiks.

Kathy said...

Thanks for the giveaway opportunity to win!

Kathy said...

I would love to see a fabric line for cancer patients that does not include pink ribbons. Instead it would be cheery and supportive and give words of encouragement. Things like 'You can do this - I'm so proud of you - love- hope-strength- I will be here for you - embrace life - live fully - you are making improvements daily -You are getting better daily-One day at a time. Things that we can put in the quilts that we give to cancer patients that strengthen their soul and resolve to beat this and endure hell to get their health back. Bright colors!!!

MissMary said...

Woot! Nice giveaway! Thanks for a chance, I especially need batiks for a small thing I'm making so that would be perfect!

Joyce Carter said...

Just came by from Facebook. Thank you so much for the giveaway.

Joyce Carter said...

My idea for a perfect FQ bundle would be beautiful soft pinks and greens.

Samantha said...

FQ bundle idea... hmmmmm....

I'm absolutely in love with Summersville at the moment and I think some of the black of that with some really eyepopping fire engine red solids or red with a small black print might be awesome.

Renae said...

Nice giveaways! FQ bundle...I love brights and florals.

Karrie S said...

Thanks for the giveaway! I love the Irish magazines. My FQ bundle would be made up of soft fabric with owls. They would need to match..like same owl size, the colors would have to look nice together, but besides that anything goes. Thanks for the chance to win. I'm gonna stick that new button on my blog ;)

pasqueflower said...

Thanks for the giveaway.
How about a polka dot FQ bundle?

Karrie S said...

I Just stopped by. My first post has the second requirement :) THanks again.

About FQ bundle - can it be a polka dot FQ bundle?

Jeanie said...

I love the great giveaways!

Jeanie said...

I like all fabric colors (hard to pick a favorite), but have always loved Batiks and all of the blending and shading within one fabric. Reminds me of my high school days when we did our own Batiking with wax.

Shirley said...

iluvmybugs said...

I'd love to see a FQ bundle of Christmas batiks.
~Terry~

Barbara @ Nähtante Quilts said...

For a FQ bundle I'd combine bright fabrics in different yellows, pink, fuchsia, turquoise, emerald, blues, aqua, lemon green and some shades in between, all in rather large geometric or flowery, or a combination of both, designs, fit for a Kaleidoscope quilt.

Lisa Cox said...

Woohoo! A fabric giveaway! Those are the best.

Lisa Cox said...

I love simple combinations like blues and browns/tans in solids and patterns.

Teresa F. said...

Great giveaway. I really need some fabric.

Teresa F. said...

I've never worked with just solids so a solid FQ bundle would be great to start with.

Michelle Williford said...

Rosa said...

LeAnne said...

Green, red and gold Christmas prints would be great. Could get an early start on holiday quilts.

I'm just starting to collect fabrics for a pink, brown and cream quilt--that would make an awesome fat quarter bundle!

Binks said...

Very cool, very cool. I've never really worked with batiks and have none in my little fabric stash. I'd really love to play with them, along with the other inspiring giveaway prizes.

Binks said...

I've been thinking about an Alice in wonderland/Mad Hatter Tea Party type theme. I'm thinking tea pots and playful colors.

Lisa Marie said...

Thanks for offering these lovely prizes! I go to a LQS where they sometimes sell sample cards like those you pictured -- they are a great way to add variety to a stash.

Lisa Marie said...

I just saw a quilt on another blog with citrus colors -- lime, orange, and lemon. I'd love a FQ bundle in those colors.

I really like the bright orange/yellow combination -- in batiks would be great. Thanks

Billy'sgirl said...

Thanks for another cool giveaway! And I hope you are feeling better.

Anonymous said...

I like blue and yellow combo. I was also thinking about using a solid color and then having a print color using that solid color to make a bundle. It's not any fun when you don't feel good, so please get better soon. Thank you for such an awesome givewaway. Just love your site.

Your fat quarter bundles are great but how about a cat themed one!

terrihume said...

This would be a great summer quilt to take with you anywhere you might happen to want to go...........lake, beach, park, or in your backyard.

Jennifer said...

I love fort worth fabric studio!!!

Verna said...

Verna said...

My favorite color is blue, and I love batiks--how about a FQ bundle of blue batiks?

Tracey said...

I have just discovered your store and blog and I'm loving what I see! How nice it is to see a giveaway open to international readers. Thanks.

Tracey said...

My fq bundle idea is ice cream colours - chocolate, strawberry, mint and vanilla. Good enough to eat!

Nancy said...

Hi - thanks for the giveaway chance!

Nancy said...

I like Tracey's idea of ice cream colors, but I'd do sherbet colors. Growing up, my favorite flavor was raspberry, and I STILL love that color!

Hot Nannie said...

Hi, great giveaways, hope I win one!

Hot Nannie said...

The colors I would love to see in a bindle would be lime green and turquoise, colors.

Zuzan said...

Hi, I just stopped by youremail neslwtter to find this blog so I have added you to my Google reader, then I see prize giveaway. Yippee, enter me please.

Zuzan said...

So, the second entry is for FQ's which I was looking at in your "Mon" special. I adore Clematis - love the quilt but bit repetitive. So what to do with these FQ? From pink & purple make applique clematis flowers,the green as leaves/stems. The small clematis as one border, the larger design as second with mixture of colors for binding. No sashing as the clematis is a climber. Yum Yum

Laurie Parrack said...

I love the batiks. Hello all. I would love to be entered into the giveaway.

wanda said...

I love the giveaway, thanks for the chance to win something.

wanda said...

I want to make a strata quilt, or a bargello quilt, so I would use the FQs for those quilts if not there are about 4 more on my list to make. Thanks

rockgranny said...

I've never seen irish quilt magazines before, it would be nice to look inside

my idea of a FQB - I seem to be in a grey and orange phase - but batiks are a must. thx
db

Ali said...

I stopped by to see Clematis - I've never worked with batiks, then again I've never had an actual quilt pattern, or quilting magazine either, so thank you for the wonderful giveaway!

Ali said...

I'd love a sea based bundle, with like unusual things. Like Echo's Moira by Lotta Jansdotter is flower blooms but they look kinda like barnacles... so things that were seaweed or fish looking like even if they weren't actually oceany at all? Hmm theme for my next quilt!

kelli said...

I stopped by!

kelli said...

My idea for a FQ bundle would be all solids in carribean blue, melon/coral, yellow, and green!

Kate Brown said...

Hi I stopped by from your newsletter!
I would love to win this one, great prizes!!

Kate Brown said...

I like Robins idea of red white and blue, summery fabrics, I would use seersucker instead of bandana though.

Anonymous said...

Wonderful prizes! I want one.

Deb said...

I'm working on a collection of reds for a red and white quilt....was so impressed and inspired by all the Red and White quilts on display in NY.

Donna said...

I dropped by! Thanks for the giveaway opportunity.

Donna said...

My fat quarter bundle would be all blues - midnight, cornflower, periwinkle, sky to name few - and soft creamy ivory.

Back Porch Extras said...

A little boy I Spy quilt is in my future. A FQ bundle to help with that project would be great. Thanks for the chance to win.

cathie said...

I love fat quarter bundles which are out-of-the ordinary.... a mixture of prints and solids, in bold colours, rather than pastels

Jeanne Gwin said...

Hi, hope all is well with FWFS. I anxiously wait to read each weeks news. I am a blog follower. Good Luck to all who enter. Common sense tells me only 3 of us will win. :)

Nancy Sue said...

What about a fat quarter bundle that focuses on the 50 States of the US. Each fat quarter represents a state....fabric with it's flower, it's iconic food item or iconic symbol. Crab for Maryland, Bell (liberty) for PA...etc. Wow..that would be a nice 50 piece fat quarter bundle!

Jeanne Gwin said...

I have an idea for a fat quarter bundle and it may look like "yuck" when put together but I would love to see a bundle with all the "birthstone" colors in it. I would also like to see a blend down starting with a particular months birthstone color and blend down from there, or up if you choose. start with November, my birthday month and I love Topaz. Just sayin Thanks for a chance to win some great items.

Nancy Sue said...

Stopping by and waving from Maryland, where it is overcast but deliciously cooler today! Thank you for this fun giveaway. It's fun to read the other comments and see what readers come up with as a fat quarter bundle :)

ikkinlala said...

Thanks for the opportunity!

ikkinlala said...

I'd love to see a fat quarter bundle of neutral colours and fairly plain (solid, mottled, dotted, etc. but not with recognizable object) patterns. It would be great to have a set that would complement a special print without overtaking it.

Mike Pearson said...

I just stopped by, although I have been here before :) One of my favorite blogs!

Mike Pearson said...

I like fat quarter bundles that are half blenders or solids and the rest are coordinating prints. Sometimes bundles have too many prints that you need to by some solids to go with it. I like greens with a hint of turquoise accents, especially with paisley or swirls :)

Sara said...

Stopping by, even though it's a pretty regular thing. :)
Love those fabrics!

Sharla G said...

Thanks for the giveaway!!

Sharla G said...

My ideal fat quarter bundle would be lots of different oranges, reds and maroons, with maybe a bit of pink mixed in!

June said...

Love your fabric selection and really appreciate the giveaway for a lucky winner! :)

June said...

Loralie Cool Cats would be a fun bundle! :)

SRB said...

I was here

SRB said...

I would love an Amish solid bundle. Or reproduction bundle maybe mixed with something modern

Maree said...

Hey, Y'all!

Crossing my fingers that I'm one of the winners ~ I'm already one of the lucky ones because I found you! :~D

Good luck, everyone!

Thanks a bunch!

Maree said...

I'd love to see more red, white and/or blue bundles with fun fabrics that aren't specifically patriotics.

Thanks for the chance to win!
