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!

Right now I'm trying to finish 3 quilt tops. Just FINISHING makes me happy!

Crossing my fingers!

Jeannie Gan said...

I love bright and cheerful colours. The most joyous moment for me is to see the cut pieces stitched together and see the transformation of the quilt.

I just finished a quilt for my husband using your Chopsticks pattern. We all love the quilt and I get lots of good comment.

Having recently retired, I had intended to do some quilting with my 30 year old stash of fabric. That is, until I saw all of the beautiful fabrics that are available today. Well, needless to say, I have started another stash with the difference being that I am now happily quilting with it! Love the deep green and navy prints in Color Me Happy!😊

I am working on a donation quilt at the moment, which I really enjoy. I love putting fabric combinations together. Even if I don't make the quilt/bag. It's plain fun!!!

Fabric just makes me happy. Even the kind of ugly stuff. I try and find the beauty in it because someone designed it and worked hard to do it. Love your patterns. Keep them coming.

Sometimes I get into sewing doldrums when I've finished a project, and am deciding what to start next. Then I make bee blocks, or potholders to give away, or some other small project that isn't for me, and that gets the quilty heart pumping again!

Nothing makes me happier when quilting than quilting while it's super sunny out. Here in Seattle we have a lot of gray skies and that's when I want to do everything but quilt. As soon as the sun is out, though, it's on!

What makes me happy, that's easy----quilting. It can be hand or machine, with a pattern or not, new fabric or scrap, with others or not. I love all aspects of quilting and find joy in everything from designing and purchasing fabric to binding and labeling. What an appropriate fabric bundle to be offering as a giveaway. Now I need to return to today's joy, getting the sections of a paper pieced star to match up. Your Mini Hex n More ruler and mini Disco pattern are on my "must have" list.

Janet M said...

My sewing room is my sanctuary and I'm happy being surrounded by all my fabrics just waiting to become something!

Any time spent working with fabric makes me happy. It's where I find my inner peace and it gives me great joy to know that I am working on something that my family and friends will also enjoy.

We have so much snow around here that it is crazy. Finally the temps are above zero this week. It means in Minnesota we need color to make us happy. Not that dull old stuff, but real, vibrant, intense color. I am happily making colorful quilts and wallhangings and purses!

Unknown said...

Great giveaway! New fabric is like opening a brand new box of crayons! Think back to when you were a kid and all the great colors in the crayon box to create with. That's how I feel with fabric. Especially fabric mail. The joy and excitement of opening that package of new fabric! As far as what I'm working on..I just had my first finish for 2014 and it's a gift so I can't wait to give it. I'm into scrappy projects with no matchy, matchy fabrics ;c) shopgirl7232(at)yahoo(dot)com

Quilting with beautiful, colorful fabrics makes me happy. Right now I have one hand in plaster after an operation, but as soon as this can come off, I can start on your Disco (adult version) and this prospect already makes me very happy. I think I won't be able to resist the baby Disco after that, because it is just too cute!!!

Unknown said...

I love working with color and just recently made the Snack Time quilt using the hexi and more ruler. Its a baby quilt using baby prints on the inside hexi and pastel solids on the out side. Such joy. Would love to win these fabrics they look fun.

Sue said...

Fabric makes me happy!
Actually any kind of sewing makes me pretty happy:
Making quilts for family, esp. my grandchildren & quilted bags or other accessories delight me as well.
Being at the sewing machine daily... even in short spurts is happiness! And winning "Color Me Happy" giveaway would be wonderful!
Thanks for featuring this fabric line!

Since the snow on the ground now is black and dirty, and I can't see the grass yet, I'm yearning for Spring, yellow, greens and pinks

I'm lovin turquoise and red aka Bonnie and Camille but I've never met a fabric I didn't love. I find my quilting joy in just hugging the fabric.

maria said...

I love seeing new fabric designs appear at my favorite online stores. I think about a person in my life that for which a quilt made of those fabrics would be perfect. What makes me happy is finding the time to sew the pieces together on a lazy Sunday afternoon.

peg said...

I'm loving turquoise and red aka Bonnie and Camille anything but I love all fabrics. My quilting joy comes from any contact with fabric, touching, looking whatever.

I love the brights, using them make me smile. I just picked up the mini hex and cant wait to get started. Going to work on a small bag first then the mini hex!

I like choosing the pattern, fabric and piecing. Putting the quilt together is a lot more challenging. I just love fabric. Every so often I have to go on a "touchy-feely" trip to the fabric store for a fix!

Sarina said...

New fabric makes me very happy! :) I was so excited to see your patterns with Vanessa's fabrics. I love both of your blogs and inspiration! It also makes me happy that my 10-year old daughter is catching the quilting bug! So far, we've made 3 American Girl sized quilts. We're going to have to check out your mini quilts for more inspiration!

This truly is my most favourite fabric collection of all time! I am in the UK and so far haven't found anywhere that has it stocked, so THANK YOU so very much for offering it as a giveaway!
Seeing these fabric colours is what makes me happy - I am drawn to the contrast and complimentary relationship of these colours. I have seen a few projects made from them and everytime it just makes me more determined to keep searching for a stockist so that I can one day soon see them in real life!

Almost everything quilty colors me happy. After just rediscovering quilting about 1 1/2 years ago, after a 25+ years absence it is so joyful. The main difference is that back then I quilted all by hand and now I'm learning machine quilting. The Color Me Happy fabric line is fantastic and I would be more than happy to win the bundle.

I just love to improv, I like to learn a block like you shared, but then make it my own. I call it my own rule of sewing. thank you.

Linda said...

I love the look and feel of new fabrics and the dreaming aspect of what to do with the material. All aspects of sewing and quilting bring me pleasure including cutting all of the pieces. I like to make things for others - my adult daughter has a special Pineterest file just for things mommy (that be me) could make.

I'd hopelessly failed at making patchwork in school, but when my (now) husband gave me my first sewing machine (until then I'd been borrowing them infrequently from whoever would lend them) I decided to invest in a few quilting books. Skip the Borders was one of my original three. I just love making things that are gorgeous and useful! They make wonderful gifts, and it's wonderful to be able to make things for my friends and family on the other side of the globe without having to ask for measurements.

Love the fabric and the FUN quilts made with your templates. Thanks for the giveaway.

The sewing projects that make me happiest are those that my niece requests. She mails me a sketch of the purse/skirt/whatever that she wants and I make it for her. Or, at least, I try to make what she's sketched. I'm not always able to execute her VERY wild fashion visions!

Bright fun colors make me happy right now. I've got 4 quilt tops to get to pinning and all I can do is just stare at them. I have a new sewing room (grey walls so my fabric can 'pop') so now I just need to find the time to get down to quilting! There are some beautiful colors in that fabric line! Thanks for the chance to win!

I recently was overwhelmed with quilting joy when my six year old granddaughter proclaimed, "I want to be a sewer like Gigi!" I am project planning for summer vacation!

I love finishing a quilt and standing back and admiring it. I love bright colors because they are so cheerful and I love being happy.

I love stars! I love paper-piecing. It just makes me happy just to have time to quilt right now. It makes me happy to complete quits myself--the whole process, including the quilting.

I'm working up a 60's paisley version of Lotus right now, and it makes me happy! Purples and navy and yellow and tangerine! Reminds me of Woodstock and my wonderfully misspent youth!

I am happily retreating with friends this weekend, all of us piecing Winding Ways quilts. My colors are blue and cream. It will be fun seeing what colors they bring to the mountains.

I love playing with my fabric to plan a quilt top and sewing the final pieces of the quilt top brings me much joy and happiness!

I love making sampler blocks. That way I don't get bored making the same block over and over! I also love star blocks because I love the challenge of making the points come out sharp. :)

Usually, sewing for the kids does it, but I'm into a ME stage... I need some clothes for work... so that's what's coloring me happy lately... my favorite is my burda 6910 shirt with rouching... I need to make more of these immediately... and I'm loving my old navy skirts that I hemmed a few inches... don't get excited... i'm on the short side! This bundle is GORGEOUS and totally in my happy color zone... Love the quilt, too.

Julianne said...
