Blogger's Choice

Wednesday, July 13, 2011
Have you heard about Blogger's Choice?

Blogger's Choice are custom selected bundles by some of your favorite bloggers available exclusively at Fat Quarter Shop.  Each month a different blogger will be featured & this is my month!

Who else is involved??
Rachel of p.s. i quilt featured hers last month.
John aka Quilt Dad has one coming soon!
and many other top bloggers too!

I love love love my bundle!!
I'm a big orange fan & that is where my bundle started... add in some teal & grey and this is what you get!


I have lots of ideas of what to make with my bundle... I may order a 2nd one and make a few things. 

One of my ideas is to make Firecracker.  I made it up digitally to see what it would look like.

Here it is with a light grey background.  I like it... but I want more of a pop...

So here it is with a black background!!
The contrast is great!

 Head on over to Fat Quarter Shop to learn more and enter for a chance to win a FQ set of the fabrics I picked out!!
note: this is not the giveaway post.
you must go to Fat Quarter Shop's blog to enter.
thanks!

The colors are fantastic! And the firecracker quilt definitely works better with the black background!

Your bundle is awesome! What do you use to make up your quilts digitally? That's so cool.

Pam said...

Love your fabric selections! I love orange and wouldn't have thought to put those together.
Would love a tutorial or hints on how to digitally make the quilts to try out the different fabrics. Sure would save lots of UFO's!

Hmmmm...wonder why I am now craving a clementine?:)

I would love to have walls in that color teal...and I agree with Rachel...I like the light grey one better and it would look perfect on my one day beautiful Room & Board sofa!;)

I saw these fabrics at FQS. Love them Julie! If I think Red and Aqua was a winning combo... this group would would be an A+!

Very nice selection of fabrics :-) A Firecracker quilt would look great in either combination I think :-)

Love your bundle! Orange is one of my favorite colors to quilt with! Hey, what software did you use to render the quilt designs?? I want it!

Bonny said...

I must say, I love your fat quarter choices! I automatically get the fat quarter news each week and I have viewed all other fat quarter choices - and yours is absolutely perfect! Though, my favorite color is orange...

Waterwheel House Quilt Shop said...

I just got these fabrics in the shop! I put the Quilting Treasures line together with Silent Cinema as well! We are on the same wave length. Firecracker is a great choice for the pattern too.

Jess said...

Just got my set and mailed it out for a block swap...I'm getting mod-houses, hopefully. Will post a link when I get some finished. Beautiful colors... I added a swatch of moda's black flowers from their cat/dog line. All good and super fun!
