Birthday Gift- FABRIC

ReannaLily Designs is throwing a blog birthday party! Look for a gift give-away each day this week. The contests will be open until Monday the 23rd. On the 23rd (5pm Central Time) I will draw a winner from each day and post the lucky names. Good luck and thanks for coming to the party!


Today's birthday gift comes from a friend of mine, Barb Sackel. I first met Barb at Houston Quilt Market 2008. It was both of our first-ever market experience. She was very professional and down-to-earth. (I was more of a deer-in-the-headlights, hot-mess at market, debuting the Seamingly Accurate Seam Guide.) In any case, Barb has gone on to be QuiltWoman.com's top-selling pattern/book author and is gearing up to release her 3rd line of fabric with Blank Quilting.

Guess what she's donating??? FABRIC!!! She has offered 6 assorted fat quarters to the lucky winner of today's birthday gift post. Her fabrics are bright, fun and bold. The color pallets from her first two lines compliment each other and work well inter-mixed.

To be entered in today's drawing, either leave a comment noting which of Barb's BRIGHT colors grabs you the most, OR hop over to her website, Rose Cottage Quilting Shop, to browse and find your favorite pattern title. Or both, enter twice, that's fine with me. After all, its a PARTY!

Very pretty. I don't know if you were asking for the pattern of the fabric or a quilt pattern. Ibiza and Sew It Goes are all such fun colors. I also liked the Bee pin cushion pattern. Thanks for celebrating your birthday with us :-)

Barb's skinny quilts are all great-I especially like the Pixie Dust one.
