It's a color me happy kind of day - with a giveaway!

Tuesday, March 4, 2014
Disclosure time: This is a sponsored giveaway by Fat Quarter Shop 

Who's up for a giveaway today?!?!?

When the crew at Fat Quarter Shop contacted me to let me know that Mini Disco had been chosen as the March pattern of the month, I was beyond excited! 



I love working with the Fat Quarter Shop, and Mini Disco has been so well received (she's so much fun to make!), I was happy dancing around the studio. 



My Robert Kaufman Kona Solids Sunrise charm pack scraps from the Mini Disco cover sample.


Here are a few of your Mini Disco quilts!
You can share more of them using #Jaybirdmini



So of course when they asked if we could do a giveaway to mark the occasion, I picked Vanessa Christenson's Color Me Happy fat quarter bundle!

Well the Northern Lights mini in a rainbow colorway makes me happy! I find my joy in making happy color quilts and giving them away. The recipients are always SO pleased!

Bethany said...

Jelly rolls!
Color me crazy but I love opening a new jelly roll!
Unrolling the fabric strips and exploring all the colors is just so much fun.
Jelly rolls color me happy!

twodraftmom said...

well, i just bought Disco and I can't wait to find the perfect fabric for it! Since I do longarm quilting for others, I don't make many quilts for myself. Can't wait to make this one!

Jodi said...

Right now it is a bunch of Jaybird Quilt designs. I just finished all the blocks in Toes in the Sand, started working on Daybreak using Studio Stash, and at the end of the month the LQS is teaching Park Bench. I will be using Tula Pink Acacia for my fabric choice. I guess you can tell I love your patterns.

Shar said...

I love to quilt anything. But I think putting fabrics together is my favorite. I have really enjoyed your patterns. One of my goals is to make one of your patterns this year.

memmens said...

Superb giveaway, my current quilty happiness is found in making a quilt for my brother for a wedding gift, we worked on the pattern and fabric choosing together!

Sue H said...

What makes me happy - color, color and more color! Quilting happiness - at the moment lots of flying geese!
Thanks for a great giveaway - love this collection.

RCWfamily said...

Big quilt blocks make me happy right now. I love a big block that goes together quick.

Laura said...

Planning a new project makes me the happiest. I love actually making things too, but it's the planning/fabric selection/pattern picking that really gets me!

Thanks for the chance!

Joni Geels said...

I go through color phases. Recently I've been in love with color order rainbow variations. Then it was brights on white. Now I'm experimenting with value by doing a few grayscale projects. Loving it all!

Mary Potts said...

Any project I can do in peace and quiet, alone in my sewing room, makes me very happy!

Michele T said...

Ooooh! How sweet is this?!! I am currently working on two quilts for two special people who will be celebrating momentous occasions: my niece will be graduating from Nursing in the spring, and my neighbour is turning 80 in the spring!!

Barbara Kanta said...

Fresh colors, colors that move, I just love them! B-)

Willa said...

Any sort of sewing makes me pretty happy. Garment construction. Quilted bags and totes. Tech cozies. Even a quilt now and then. Love quilting most anything. I like being at the sewing machine as long as it is not rip out and do over of any sort including mending......ugh!

Catriona Brown said...

I'm making my own design of HST star quilt at the moment using Tula Pinks Acacia collection, it's a beautiful rainbow. I tend to get inspired by stuff on Pinterest and make my own version, often colour matching to where it's going to go!

omegamary said...

rainbow colors make me happy and giving away my projects really make me happy

babiesdoc said...

I am most happy with small projects
Instant gratification! and of course bright colors

I am finishing only 4 batik placemats, just made 6 burp cloths and a couple of bibs. and just 1-2 hours a day for 2 days.

Deb Saint said...

I love your patterns! Anytime at my sewing machine is a happy time. So many beautiful fabrics and so many beautiful quilt patterns to make them into. I need more hours in a day :-). Your patterns inspire me. Keep them coming!

Deairdre said...

I have let each of my nieces and nephews pick out a quilt when they are teenagers. It has to be lapquilt size, but otherwise they pick the pattern and the fabrics. I love to see the colors and designs they choose! Definitely not what I would pick, but so fun!

I am Just One Mom said...

I love color placement. Taking the same block and helping parts come forward or become part of the background depending on the fabric put in the various pieces within the block. It is like turning a kaleidoscope. That is my joy: freedom to experiment and create.

Heidi Beals said...

Certain points in the quilting process are amazing - when piecing and you can just start to see everything come together! Or finishing!!!

Tierney Barden said...

I make and donate quilts for kids in the US via Project Linus, and that's fun because I get to use the whole rainbow if I want! I find my quilting joy by making quilts for others, but also by teaching the tradition to my nephews. I follow your blog, and hope to make some of your quilts soon.

Karens Quilts, Crows and Cardinals said...

Congrats Julie on your Quilt of the Month - how exciting and well deserved! Color me happy is being able to mix color and simple piecing with Negative space so I can quilt me Happy! Love your patterns -they leave great potential for this. Cheers! Karen

What brings me the most joy in quilting, is the fabric, loving playing with color and see how it will all look together! I love the quilting of the quilt how it can make the quilt sing.. 2nd love your patterns

Liz Rehrauer said...

Making minis and mug rugs make me happy so I can practice free motion quilting before I do a big one I have waiting for me.

M.W. said...

Margs Primitive Quilts said...

I saw the Northern Lights made up and quilted & I think that would be a "funky" one to make. Out of my "box" so to speak,but a nice change. Thanks for the chance to enter.
Yay! The sun is out!Have a great day!

Wendy Iris said...

Denise in PA said...

What wonderful bundle to choose! Working with wonderful fabrics colors me happy - even if the colors are neutral. Like I always say...I love *all* the colors!

Rebecca said...

Picking the colors make me happy.
If its for myself or someone else getting to play with the color is the best part ever.

Lynn Wright said...

I love playing with fabric and thread. Longarming, machine embroidery, making quilts, curtains, handbags.....just love playing with fabric and thread.

Tina Short said...

Anything to do with baby quilts or cot sheets. bibs and burp cloths is colouring me very happy at the moment. I'm sewing for my new grandaughter, due next week!

Kristen said...

I love color, especially bright colors. I often tell people that color makes me happy, so that is what I am drawn to when I quilt and purchase fabrics.

Deanna said...

Sewing baby quilts makes me happy. Not only am I carrying on a tradition started by my grandmother, I am welcoming a new little person into our family with something they will cherish forever.

Pretty much all sewing makes me happy. I especially love making quilts for others...the whole time I am stitching, I am thinking of that person and I love seeing their surprised face when I give it to them.

Kim said...

Bright cheery colors make me happy. I love making bags and quick quilt projects.

Michelle B. said...

I love quilting and it makes me happy because all my projects are for someone else, so they enjoy my creativity.....I already requested the mini hex for my birthday next month....

mom2three said...

I love to make placemats and totes - they're a bit quicker. I've been hand quilting a big quilt for a couple of years, and I can't wait to start another big quilt. Disco seems like the perfect pattern, and I've been a V & Co fan forever - even before she did quilty tutorials :)

Thanks for the chance to win!

Laura said...

I take a pattern I like and put my own spin on it, whether that's using color combinations that speak to me or changing the block arrangement a bit. I find my quilting joy simply by being in my sewing room.

Queenie Believe said...

I do a lot of quilting for others so the time when I set aside to do a project for me colors me happy. (Science Fair is the next up on the project for me list)
Have a great day.
Always, Queenie

Vbobro said...

My happiest quilty moments are diving into my big scrap jars and doing some improv piecing. No rotary cutter, patterns or rulers(Sorry, Julie!)... just playing, unwinding, being spontaneous, and no rules! happy happy.

Jamsamily said...

My current quilting happiness is making a quilt for each of my three kids. Each have chosen their own patterns and fabrics. A memory quilt from old clothes for the eldest, a half square triangle for bright solids for no.2 and an English paper pieced hex quilt for the youngest. So much fun and lovely to see their designs come together. Thanks for the giveaway.

lesleyjean said...

Quilting in general makes me happy. I love everything about it. :)

Susan said...

Right now bright spring colors are making me happy since our weather in Philadelphia has been so snowy this winter. I find my quilting joy by getting into my sewing room every day, a definite benefit of being retired! Thanks for the giveaway.

Tamie said...

It is usually bright, clear fabrics that make me happy. That said, I am in the process of one with low volumes and very little color and I can't with to see how that turns out. Thanks for the giveaway.

Laura said...

I love gray with bright colors. Love improv quilts, log cabins, wonky stars!

Teresa Stanulis said...

I find a lot of quilting joy in making quilts without following a pattern. Having an idea and figuring out how to make it is time consuming, but it is happy work!
tstanulis@mac.com

*Tyler* said...

Traditional blocks with some bright modern colors color me happy. When the quilt is done giving it to someone colors them happy. :)

Melissa Smith said...

For me blue + red combos are happy colors. Maybe it is the nod to primary days but I love them!

Rebecca said...

I love using orange in projects, that makes me happy :)

L said...

This time of year, it always makes me happy to sew sundresses for my daughter!

Paula @ Sewy Stuff said...

Oh my goodness I *love* this bundle! I would totally make a quilt JUST FOR ME! I have yet to keep one of my quilts, and have make more new baby quilts, but this one would be mine, all mine!

SewingJanice said...

Love selecting colors for a project. Currently picking fabrics to start Park Bench!! Looking forward to class starting on Saturday at Material Girls quilt shop in La Plata, MD. THanks for the giveaway!

Amy said...

Paper piecing has been bringing me the quilting happy lately. It's not so much the technique as it is the ability to control the color placement and accuracy of the piecing.

Leigh Anne said...

I adore making scrappy postage stamp quilts. This is surprising even to me :)

Anita said...

I find joy in making colorful quilts, whether the tones are subtle or bright. Mostly I make them scrappy.

tamidug said...

I was just thinking about colors the other day while happily quilting away. I can honestly say that I love all colors, especially when they are in a beautiful fabric! I also love finding new color combinations when choosing fabrics for a quilt. Thank you for the opportunity to win some great fabric!!

Beautiful fabrics and great giveaway! Thanks for the chance!

Kelly's Korner said...

I work in a fabric store so it colors me happy to open a box of fabric that just arrived! We squeal and dance around the office. I get my motivation to sew from teaching. I love how happy people get when they learn something new!

Rachel said...

It's pretty joyful for me to donate fun, unique quilts to the children's hospital where my son has spent a lot of time. I know first hand how meaningful it is to be given a handcrafted quilt--to know that someone I haven't even met cares. I'm happy to pass that along.

trisha said...

Making baby quilts for newborns.

Hildy said...

What makes me happy is to pick all the differnt fabrics for a unique quilt! It's so much fun to choose and arrange (and rearrange) all these poosibilities and when the quilt is finished and have something in my hands that is unique and me:-)
Thanks for the giveaway, love this line:-)

Would love to win your awesome giveaway!

Kiska Stevens said...

What wonderful happy colors! I just love to make quilts with bright happy colors and then to make someones day when they get one of my quilts! That is what it's all about for me!

Allison C said...

Color with a contrasting neutral makes me happy! I love it when I use white or gray to make the colors "pop" more.

Carmen said...

Sewing anything that will be quilted makes me happy-- from mug rugs to quilts. I find my quilting joy from opening bundles of fabric. It's like a little present. I unwrap each fat quarter and lay it out. Then I overlay the next fat quarter over it, etc. this gives me a great "view" of the colors and how they play with each other.

Cozy Capatiller said...

Julie, I certainly enjoy the whole process of making quilts and things, and combining colors and fabrics that work really well together - but my GREATEST source of happiness is the response to my work... The best remark someone has made about a quilt I made for them was "This is the most fabulous piece of usable art!"... Usable art! I absolutely LOVE that!

VickiT said...

Anytime I am sitting in front of my sewing machine, I'm happy. It means I have everything in the house all caught up and I have ME time. The projects that make me most happy while sewing are those I am making for babies because everyone just loves gifts for their baby. I'm also VERY happy it is not for MY own baby. HAHA I'm way too old for that now, but I'll take a new grandbaby anytime.

Juels said...

Designing and picking colors makes me happy. Using my hands to create something for myself or someone else is where I find my joy. Beauty. Color. Joy. Creativity. The staff of Life

John Ladd said...

Mini disco quilts color me happy right now!

Jodi - usairdoll said...

Nancy said...

I love getting fabric in the mail, anything purple! And finishing a project!

Josie McRazie said...

A happy quilt for me is bright fun and challenging! I LOVE to be tested and to try new things! I love the look of 'traditional' colours, bur cannot bring myself to work on them!

Christine @ Stonehouse Living said...

My daughter has recently learn to quilt, her interest has renewed mine. I love Modern Quilting!!

Four dogs and one quilter said...

Making quilts and giving them away makes me happy. And yellow, yellow always makes me happy.

Janda W said...

What a great giveaway! Just being able to find time to get into my sewing room at all colors me happy! With three kids aged 5, 3 and 1, it's hard to find a spare moment. When I do, though, I love watching an idea come to fruition as the fabric for a project gets sewn together. This Color Me Happy bundle would be perfect for a project I've been wanting to do for awhile -- a giant single NY Beauty block. I've been waiting for Color Me Happy to come out specifically for that project!

Thank you for the opportunity!! :-)

paige said...

It makes me happy to finish a quilt. With 3 young children and a job outside the home, I seem to have a lot of unfinished projects. But, every minute I have to work on something makes me happy and every completion thrills me.

Heather said...

What a lovely giveaway. I find any quilt that I can sneak in some teal makes me feel like I've sewn joy into it.

Heather Cox said...

I love all quilting anything that has to do with color. I love to sit in my craft area and layout the fabric and just play w the colors until I see it! I get lots of inspiration from your patterns like the Mini Disco! Thanks for all the social media stuff you do it keeps me creating!

Terry@ a quilting blog said...

The quilting projects that color me happy, and give me joy, are those I create for others…love when I hear how happy it has made them!!! Thanks for the sweet giveaway :)

Jul said...

Right now I'm drawn to browns and teals. Im collecting some fabrics to make you Lotus pattern!

Nancy said...

I love vibrant happy colours. But just finished a quilt in toned down teal, yellow and white and that combination also made me happy.

bee said...

i love any kind of quilting projects really. most especially the ones that i've had in my head of a long time and seeing it turn out the way i wanted - those make me happy dance!

Janet @ Simply Pieced said...

Making star blocks are probably my favorite. It always leads to some fun quilting.

KatheG said...

I really like making quilt projejcts out of solids especially bright colors which I know is not theh norm. But then again I was never 'norm'. Thanks for this.

Lisa Marie said...

The quilting projects that make me the happiest are those that use bright colors, those that are gifts for family or friends, and those that come from some unexpected flash of inspiration. If I'm not making quilts, just looking at them can also make me happy. It's all good!

brownj6610 said...

BOM or block exchanges with my bees make me happy because I love the uniqueness of the blocks and the variety of fabric patterns in the blocks. I'm straying away from quilt patterns that look too symmetric.

Shanners said...

I love quilt alongs. I am working on one now, and love how they keep me motivated and I get to see everyones quilts come together as well.

Sandie @ crazy'boutquilts said...

Anytime I get behind my machine, I feel the tension leave and the smile form. I love scrappy projects. Thanks for the fun!

thebirdlady said...

Throws or quilts that I can use and see every day.

Heidee Hallam said...

I have very little time to sew, so projects I can see coming together quickly make me very happy. My husband says I'm a completely different person when I sew. Your Rock Candy pattern was an absolute delight to make. Seeing those points come together so beautifully, it was lovely!

suemac said...

I love V&Co. Fabric lines. There are a couple of quilts in Vintage Modern that would look great in that line.

Amy said...

I just started quilting and I'm in love with picking out new fabric! All the possibilities make me so excited! I have been loving learning about fat quarters and jelly rolls and charm packs ;)

Rachel Estes said...

What sewing or quilting projects color you happy?

Bright, happy colors do it for me. I get joy making childrens charity quilts. I know their little faces light up and know they have something that is only theirs.

Lesley Greenlee said...

You can color me happy anytime when I am surrounded by pretty fabrics. I'd rather buy fabric than food at times lol. As for quilting, well I can't stick to just one project so I am currently working on a 1930s hexagon table runner, a bag and a pinwheel quilt.

Rachael H said...

I love making lap quilts that I know my loved ones will wrap them self in on the couch to relax!

Sarah Muirhead said...

I love fabric. I might actually love fabric itself more than quilting with it. It makes me happy. But so do my projects.

Three Baggy P's said...

I would love to make something wonderful out of this fabric! I'm going on a quilting retreat in June and would love to pack this in my bag=)Thanks

Kelley said...

Any quilting project colors me happy! Quilting & sewing is physical therapy for me as I recover from spinal cord injury & surgery. It's hard being home most days, so I enjoy creating as a way to stay encouraged. I love all colors, so my mood dictates whether I use cool colors or bright ones. Great giveaway, thanks!

pkrueger said...

I am working on a flannel quilt. So comfy and warm for winter.

Crickets Corner said...

The entire process of making a quilt makes me happy. I have so much fun choosing a pattern, picking the fabric, cutting it up, sewing it back together, quilting it and finally seeing the results.

pkmegs said...

Love to quilt using precuts, either jelly roll or layer cake - I have found I finish a quilt much quicker using these. Love bright colors.

CarolAnn said...

I am just starting the Night Sky quilt. It took me awhile to get started because it made me happy to just looking at the stack of colorful fat quarters. I have been admiring the Color Me Happy, it will probably be my next project.

Faye said...

I am new to quilting so choosing the pattern and getting the fabric is so much fun for me. I have found that fabric purchases are now my escape and my alone time. With a newborn it is hard to have time to quilt, but I know one day I will get to it. right?

Carol Swota said...

My appliqué quilts make me so happy!! They take a year to make so it can take a long time to feel the joy of a finished quilt, but well worth it. I also love the hexie….I cannot get enough of the Science Fair pattern and I'm anxious to use my new "mini hex n more" template. Do you have any patterns for it yet??

Karin said...

All my projects make me happy. I love my Arrowtail and Super Mario quilts - the bright colors make me smile.

Karen Caves said...

I love making things for others, so determining their style and color is one of my favorite aspects of quilting. Spetzie at att dot net. Thanks for the chance!

Denise said...

I love quilting the most, but other areas of sewing intrique me as well. I am just getting starting in frame quilting on a midarm, and it is quite interesting.

DebrafromMD said...

I love bright colors. My recent projects have been red and white quilts. Actually, I love working with most kinds of fabric. Quilting is my happy place.

Bonnie Pfrimmer said...

I love bright colors!! That is what makes me happy. Lately I have been drawn to pinks and purple. I have to get out of this rut and make some other colors. Love the Mini Disco quilt. They look like jewels. Thank you for sharing.

chris said...

I am learning slowly how to quilt properly. I would love to do a spring themed quilt/pillow. Your disco design is beautiful.

GO STARS! said...

Colors that make me happy - colors of spring/summer. Warm times - beaches, pastures of spring wildflowers. Blues, greens, yellows, pinks, oranges,.. Brights...Solids, Prints and in-betweens.

Jamie said...

I just need to find time to quilt at all! But I am looking forward to getting some Color Me Happy to work on some blocks from 500 Quilt Blocks.

Maria McTiver said...

Warm colors color me happy. Thanks for the chance to win such beatiful fabric.

Grammi Sharon said...

I love all kinds of fabrics, but what makes me most happy is making baby quilts out of 30 fabrics. They are so sweet and fun. I'm also finishing an Irish quilt out of florals, mint greens, and soft pinks.

GranChris said...

I love fabric, all fabric. I believe even ugly fabric isn't ugly if you cut it up small enough so it doesn't take much for me to get excited. If a quilt isn't going well I might just cut it up in squares and make a scrap quilt out of it. Nothing goes to waste in my house. I just like to sew and sew and sew. Too bad housework and cooking get in the way but then I like cooking and gardening too. I think I will need to live a very long time.

Working with bright batiks makes me happy. I imagine myself on a warm tropical island relaxing while being wrapped in an assortment of lovely batiks, when in reality, the temperatures are -10 degrees where I am.

Such beautiful fabrics! I personally find quilting to be very relaxing. Plus, working in a science/research job, it is nice to let my creative side come through in the evenings when I'm home from work.

My favorite part is making something unique and special for a loved one. From selecting fabric to making a pattern choice and finally presenting them with the labor of love... I adore making things for people!

I find happiness in quilting for my family and friends. I still have so many To make for them, but every time I give one away, I see how happy it makes them!

Working on a variety of projects makes me happy. I love to play with colors, or themes, and sometimes make the same quilt in a different colorway. Seeing what I plan (and think it will look) and how it comes out (sometimes different, sometimes better) really brings me joy. Thanks!

Most projects "color me happy" Currently using what I have to make Bonnie Hunters' Celtic Solstice and really bit off more then I could chew, but am plugging along. I love the color display in jelly rolls and charm packs.

Right now making a baby quilt for my granddaughter coming in May is making me happy, happy, endlessly happy!!! Also making a stuffed pink elephant, some valances, some pillows...teaching her mom (my DIL) and her aunt (my daughter) to quilt while they are making a second, "mommy & aunty" quilt for her too! Did I mention - HAPPY!!!! :)
Thank you for a fabulous giveaway, those colors are just so happy too!!

Briawna said...

The thing about quilting that makes me happiest is when I master a new skill (perfectly matching HST points!) or when I finish binding a quilt. But it also makes me happy to see my kids bundled up in quilts I've made for them or catch them reading under a well-loved quilt. Okay, I love everything about quilting!

cgd said...

I love your mini-quilts. I am not brave enough yet to try one!!! My favorite color is purple, but all my quilts seem to be black and white. lol. Just sitting behind the sewing machine seems to make me happiest. I can clear my head from the sound of the machine running!!! Thanks for the giveaway and good luck to all.

Cecilia said...

Picking the fabrics for a new project colors me happy and when you are finished and you step back to look at it and see that the quilt looks exactly as you imagined it would is the best moment.

Jessica said...

The colors that make me happy are all the bright spring and summer colors. This has been a long winter and I am looking forward to happy bright colors. What ever new quilt I am working on brings joy. I find I can get lost in the project and not even realize how much time has gone bye.

Joan and Kevin said...

I love using the Bonnie and Camille lines of Bliss, Ruby and Marmalade in my Double Wedding Ring quilt. The colors make me so happy! Thanks!

Reading quilting blogs make me happy as I am just learning to sew. My daughter really wants me to make her some clothes so when I am confident enough to try my first pattern I will be really happy.
