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!

Discovering new exciting patterns colors me happy. I recently discovered your site and your products and have been happily making Rock Candy Table toppers for all of my family and friends.

Unknown said...

Anything that is bright & colorful puts a smile on face! I love this collection & I currently keep the mini charm pack next to my bed so it makes me smile every morning. It may sound corny but after this Chicagoland winter & injuring my right wrist two wks ago, it helps.

Jennifer said...

It's all about the fabric for me. I get so excited when I have some knew yardage.

Unknown said...

Sewing and quilting for others colors me happy! Giving away something hand-made feels like giving a part of myself.

Unknown said...

I love anything with orange! it is the happiest color I know! You can't help but smile when you see it! The crazier the print the more fun it is!

LynneMcL said...

Lately I've been craving "hot" - orange, red, hot pink, combined with different shades of gray and white. Something warm while I wait for winter to thaw.

Kacey said...

Finally working on my Swoon quilt is making me happy!!

Kim G said...

I seem to enjoy working on smaller projects the best, but just looking at all the fabric lines are what "color me happy". My quilting joy seems to be buying these fabric lines and then maybe actually sewing something!

brittany said...

I've been enjoying making small sewing projects like zippered pouches! It's such a fun way to use up small pieces of fabrics or to showcase a fabric I really love. Plus they're usually quick to do so they're satisfying!

Unknown said...

I really enjoy putting on an audio book and cutting and piecing a quilt. It is almost a Zen experience. Usually I start when everyone else has gone to bed. I get lost in it. Pretty soon I look at the clock and it is whoops I better go to bed.

DeborahGun said...

I love projects where I don't have a definite plan but make it up as I go along :-)

Unknown said...

The planning and choosing fabric for a new quilt is the best part until the quilt is finished. That's the part that makes me happiest. Great give away! Thanks!

jenni said...

I love cutting into a new pile of fabric! I love finishing a quilt with scrappy binding! Piles of fabric in my craft room COLORS ME HAPPY!

Jeanette said...

I would love to win. I'm happy because I am finally going to finish the first quilt I ever started. The circle around quilt!

Theresa (Mom) said...

I love quilting from the planning to the cutting, piecing, basting and binding. And of course, the fabric shopping is the best! Thanks for the opportunity to hoard more.

MalinisQuilts said...

Making colorful baby quilts makes me happy. They are such fun to make and get done faster.

sharonlorenesews said...

Triangle Tango colors me happy right now. It's a pattern from a 2009 Quilts and More magazine I bought the year my son was born. I've been piecing it with fabric I bought when I was pregnant. It will be nice to see it on his bed this spring. This will be the 2nd quilt I've finished for him.

Unknown said...

I love making quilts for people...the look on their faces is the best when I give someone a quilt I made for them. Love making them...love giving them. :)

Melissa Miller said...

I get joy from the every step in the entire quilting process. Most joy comes at the end seeing the finished project, though.

Unknown said...

KimS said...

Oh, what beautiful fabric in this line!! Hmmm... Color, I think, would be aqua family. The joy is in the creating, the "Oh, look how great this turned out!", and watching people's faces when you give them something you've made. :)

Unknown said...

I have recently been busy making baby quilts for my first Grandchild who should be joining this world in May. I also love making Sampler quilts and mystery quilts.

Karen said...

I love to piece quilts, and beautiful fabrics usually inspire them. I find that I encounter fabrics that I must have and then I look for a pattern that I think will show them off appropriately. I guess that means that that the happiness starts with the fabric (and I really love the Color Me Happy line)!

My Daughter and I have a quilt retreat coming up later this month. That my friends is what makes me happy.:)

A finish makes me happy; there are parts of the process that are not my favorite, but once that quilt comes out of the dryer, in all it's crinkly goodness, I can't stop smiling. Thanks for the opportunity to win!

Blue quilts make me happy. I love blue and always try to work some blue into my quilts.

Making a Tote bag or small quilt for someone else is what colors me happy and brings me Joy.Thanks for the giveaway.

I get happy when the fabrics I pick actually look good once sewn together. The more I see your Disco pattern, the more I want to give it a try!

Shauna said...

Awesome giveaway. I love bright colors and any time I can use them in a quilt I am happy

Unknown said...

One of my most cherished possessions is a quilt my great-grandma made. It is completely hand sewn and hand quilted and is a true colorful scrappy treasure. I even recently had my newborn daughters pictures taken on it. It has been with us for so many special memories and will be passed down to my daughter to have for her own family someday. It colors me happy to think that any of the quilts I make will (hopefully) one day be as cherished. This "quilty happiness" feeling is what drives all my quilting projects no matter what I am currently working on.

Judy said...

I love bright, happy colors and half square triangles. Thanks for the giveaway.

Heartsdesire said...

Civil War bundles make me happy. Some of the fabrics tend to be a little on the dark side, but they can always be livened up with some of the beautiful chrome yellows, poison greens and orange.

Angelia Lanouette said...

As a new quilter what colors me happy is making small projects and gifts for my family and friends. I find my quilting joy everytime I get to buy new fabric. Thank you for sharing!

BillieBee (billiemick) said...

I would love to make an aqua and pale yellow quilt come day.

Thanks for the chance to win and for your inspiring blog!

Brendon said...

I love to sew anything from clothes to quilts and anything else someone will ask me to make.

My new obsession that makes me excited to find a pattern are Jelly Rolls. I have been finding patterns all over the internet that I want to try, skirts, quilts, hot pads and more.

I get joy from just sitting at my machine and working on any of my projects that I have started.

NancyL said...

Quilting makes me happy; feeling the fabric and putting colors together to make the quilt are like therapy for me. I love reds and blues, currently turquoise or aqua, and I'm using more grays lately too. I love to give away quilts, recently when a new grandchild is born!

Flower 4040 said...

I love picking fabrics and patterns. Greens and blues are big for me right now. But pink is awesomely awesome too!!

Suze said...

A project that stimulates me and yet is not too frustrating makes me happy. I give away most of my projects and that makes me happy. I have several blankets and don't need quilts. I like to give away to those who are less fortunate than I am. I wish that those who receive them knew how much work went into them and appreciated them. Yet, I know that when you give a gift, the gift is given with love and there are absolutely no strings attached.

Siobhán said...

Thanks for the chance to win! I crave brighter, clearer colors, as opposed to the country colors I used when I first started quilting. I love making quilts for my family, and am so thankful that they love receiving them.

Wendy said...

starting a new project makes me happy - the excitement of choosing the fabric and pattern and making those first cuts

Making the pickle dish quilt with FREE fabric would definitely make me happy :) I love traditional patterns made with modern fabrics.

Unknown said...

I love to work with scraps, but I think every quilt should have some red in it. Be careful with yellows, I like them but they dominate so use them sparingly unless you are intending to make a yellow quilt.

Wouldn't it be fun to create something from this bundle of fat quarters!

Happy for me is a sunny room to stitch a baby quilt for a sweet little one!

Carol said...

I do best at the planning stage. I seem to get bogged down once I start piecing and that doesn't describe how long it takes me to quilt. Binding as a last step always makes me happy - the finishing touch, as it were.

Teressa P. said...

I love all things wonky. They make me happy because I'm really a terrible piecer. The wonkier the better. Thanks for the chance to win!

Amy said...

I love bright, happy spring colors. Nothing too floral tho...
And quilting for others brings me so much joy. Everyone is always so touched by the gift of a quilt but little do they know I love making them almost as much as I love giving them away. It's a win-win for sure.

I love playing with fabric! Playing with color, design and pattern until it makes a beautiful piece. Every cut, every stitch, every press until it is finished and that new piece is given to someone I love or care about. This is simply a happy line to have fun with and share with others and try that new technique that I would love to master.

Bright, beautiful, fresh fabrics make me beyond happy! I'm a fabric addict..Beautiful fabrics make me calm, and I feel satisfied and content...it's like a "fresh start" or a"new day".. Weird I know, but it colors me happy ;)

Right now, I'm working on a triple Irish chain and a baby quilt that both have lots of yellow in them - the color feels like its own little sunlamp on the gray winter days here on the East Coast. I piece by hand, and I find my joy in taking quiet moments to work on my sewing, especially on sunny days when I can use the natural light.
