Birthday Gift- BLOWOUT

Its the last day of the ReannaLily Designs 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!


Oh my goodness. Today is the last day! It has been a very fun blogland birthday party and a wonderful couple years. Here's to many more! I've been fortunate to have many supporters and make many friends along the way in this business. ReannaLily Designs has also had the opportunity to work with some excellent fabric companies.

Today's gift is a collection of HALF YARD CUTS from the various companies I've had the pleasure of working with in the previous year.

First there's Art Gallery Fabrics. As you know, I authored and illustrated 7 of the Art Gallery Fabric sewing patterns. I learned so much from that experience. I'm including 5 HALF YARD CUTS from Art Gallery Fabrics.

Next, Northcott Fabrics. QuiltWoman.com partnered (sort-a, that might not be the right word there) with Northcott to bring independent pattern designers directly to the fabric. I worked with a couple different fabric lines, releasing 2 patterns in the fall and remaking a couple of my other covers in the Northcott pallet. ReannaLily Designs will be releasing 3 more Northcott patterns this October. For this blow-out gift, I'm including a total of 1 1/2 YARDS of Mark Lipinski's Home Elements.

Lastly, Michael Miller fabrics. Wait... I don't currently have a pattern on the market that is exclusively Michael Miller fabrics... BUT have you seen the October 2010 edition of Quilter's World? Oh goodness, my Circle Purse is featured in the In The Bag article. (I'm planning a whole blog post on the magazine, but I didn't realize the October Issue would be out so soon.) The Circle Purse is made with Laura Gunn's Lantern Bloom. For the blow-out celebration, I'm including 4 HALF YARD CUTS of Lantern Bloom.

To enter to win today's prize, simply leave a comment telling me which fabric on the market inspires you the most.

Hope this has been a good birthday week for you. I need/want more fabric. As you know, I have a hard time walking away from fabric.

Stormy Days said...

So many fabrics on the market inspire me, so I'll pick one of the one's you listed. Art Gallery has the Element's collections that I love and my favorite is the Floral.

Kaffe fabrics always, always, always grab me somewhere in my creative center. I think of buying a trailer somplace and wall papering each room in fabric....Kaffe fabrics. I know I would not be able to live there because it would be over load....but the thought of having it everywhere seems over the top!!! Something every girl should experience every now and again.

You asked :)
Happy Birthday
Smiles,
Kelly

Barb said...

I love the sophistication of Among the Flowers by Laura Berringer for Marcus Bros. Her neutral palette adds a touch of class to any room. Of course, I also am inspired by all the fabrics with dots, birds, giraffes and elephants. I aspire to be classy but am whimsical by nature :D

Barb said...

I am most assuredly a subscriber to your blog. Love your designs!

Stephanie said...

I'm not much of a connoisseur of fabric lines, but I love browsing the Moda website. And I love all the 30s reproductions on the market now.

Lantern bloom is a perennial favorite! It works for quilts, pillows, skirts, and hey, I even know someone who had her wedding cake made in lantern blooms!

Sheila said...

Which fabric is my fabric? Has to be Art Gallery fabrics....they have a slight sheen, almost silky feel to them, and are so luxurious, it's hard to believe they're cotton! I'd be in heaven to win your fabric prize!!

Gene Black said...

Right now, I am inspired by Ricky Tims Oodles of Doodles fabric line for Red Rooster Fabrics.

I love the bold colorful wildness of it.
but then again, I am inspired by MOST fabrics. I see a person in a shirt or top or skirt that strikes me and I wonder if it is 100% cotton and if maybe I could get one at the thrift store to cut up for making a quilt. Ha ha...yep that is how I roll

Congratulations on your birthday week, and sharing with your readers. Thought I saw a new line from Pat Bravo called Paradise and it was gorgeous. All her fabrics are gorgeous including those you posted! And, there is a new Denyse Schmidt line that was announced on her blog (and TrueUp) which is due out in November - like both the green and blueberry colors of it. Well, I love most fabrics (sigh).

Marcia said...

I really am so moved by Kaffe Fassett's beautiful colors and patterns. I have not bought anything yet but as soon as I can get organized and get some of my UFO's completed (just don't tell me about those UFO's!) then I want, really want some of this fabric. GOT TO GAVE IT!

Laurie said...

I really am liking the Riley Blake designs - they are so bright and happy! I used to just be a traditional calico kind of girl, but I really am changing! Who said you can't teach an old dog a new trick :)

Melissa said...

I'm not really into name brand fabrics though they are very nice! I use mostly recycled materal from the thrift stores. I just keep the fabric/clothing around until it fits in with what I want to sew. I let it "speak" to me!

Melissa said...

I follow your blog.

SarahVee said...

Right now I'm inspired by Kaffe Fasset after looking at a blog with that Lollipop Tree pattern that I am going to have to order tomorrow. It's my birthday (23rd) so I feel entitled to indulge myself.

Bellgirl said...

At the moment I'm really inspired by Cloud 9 designs' Beyond the Sea collection. it's so lovely!
