Bijou Lovely pattern giveaway

i have another friend i'd like you to meet today.  holly of bijou lovely!



holly is a talented quilter, designer, pattern writer, photographer, and all around creative gal!  check out her tutorial for herringbone blocks - they are really cool.  see?

she's also the host of the inspire circle of do. good stitches, which is how i met her. 

each month, our group creates blocks for a charity quilt, designed by one of our circle's awesome members.  we send the blocks to that month's quilter, who creates the quilt and delivers it to it's recipient.  it's been really rewarding to be a part of this - each month i find myself challenged to create a unique block to become part of an amazing quilt, and i have learned a lot about quilting, while doing something good! 

here's another one of the quilts holly designed that we contributed blocks to - sherbert squares.

so, if you haven't yet, stop by her blog, she's always inspiring!  she is giving away TWO copies of her colorblock pattern to you guys today!

good luck to everyone!  winners will be drawn at noon july 16th, and will have one week to claim their prize before a new winner is chosen.  thanks!

I'm thinking the Bloggers Bundle by Cara W. of CaraQuilts would be perfect. But since that's not a single line of fabric, I could go to Apple of My Eye as a back-up plan.

B Greene said...

I might try Kate Spin's new Cuzco line - love those deep colors!

Carla G said...

I'd like to make this with It's a Shore Thing. That would make it bright and perfect for my kids! Thanks for a chance to win! :)

Gill said...

I'd make it with solids!

Gemma said...

I have some Tula Pink Parisville that would be fab for this.

Allison C said...

I haven't worked with all solids and I think this would be a great first pattern to try it with.

gccmom said...

I would love to make it with Vintage Modern.

Mary Grace McNamara said...

They are all so lovely! Maybe scrappy? Good way to use up those leftovers!

MGM

Kelsey said...

I'm going to say either scrappy or maybe some Amy Butler Cameo!

Anonymous said...

I would use a pretty combination of pinks and brown

Kelli said...

Not sure what fabric prints I'd use...maybe one with straight solids and another with Lucy's Crab Shack? Okay...maybe another with some Hawaiian prints fabs, if I can find some cool modern ones.

Jessica said...

I'm not sure what fabrics I would use, but something bright and fun for baby's nursery!

kluckingbear said...

I just saw a new (to me, anyway) line called "Nightshade" and I think those would look great w/Colorblock :)

Tina said...

I think I'd make this up with solids and either a heather bailey or amy butler print

Tina said...

I think I'd make this up in solids with either a heather bailey or amy butler print.

Shakey Stitches said...

I would use a walk in the woods. It would show it off beautifully.

memmens said...

I think I would try and use fabric from my stash as I have so much of it and can't justify buying more! So there would be a real mix of designers, The Quilted Fish, Lizzy House, Aneela Hoey and Amy Butler, in fact just thinking about it I'm quite inspired! thanks for the chance to win

Kimberly Cassie said...

Wouldnt the ghastlier be fun to use with this pattern! Thanks for the giveaway

Lee said...

I would use Birds and Bees by Tula Pink! thanks!

JoyceLM said...

I have a huge stash - so I'd choose a focus fabric and some blenders & make the pattern. Thanks for the giveaway.

Margaret said...

I think the kona solids would be awesome. With orange as the focal color.

hueisei said...

Maybe few bright colors fabrics from my stash :)

Heather said...

I've got some yummmy moda crossweaves that would look great in that chevron!

Stacey said...

I would use my stash to make the quilt for an upcoming baby shower.

Kathrynn said...

I think solids would be a good place to start

Donna Joy said...

I would make ths from my stash, it really is fascinating

sandandstarfish said...

I love my vintage fabrics so I would definitely make it with those :)

pinsandneedles said...

I think I would make it with Kona solids! I just swapped and have lots of lovely colors!

Kelli said...

Wouldn't it be fun in all polka dots? I think that's what I'll make for my sister and brother-in-law when they adopt!!

Jeanne Gwin said...

Probably Kona Solids maybe Moda Solids. I am not sure but I do know mine would be blues and yellows. :O

Jodi - usairdoll said...

I would love to make this with solids and patterned colours in greens, purples and greys. No novelty prints just plain colours. It is a great pattern.
