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!

There's only two more days left in the blog birthday party!

I am so fortunate to have today's birthday gift sponsor be my friend and local quilt guild buddy, Jackie Clark. I met Jackie on the very first guild meeting I attended. Guild meeting was on the second day I lived in Wichita. {I'm a girl with priorities...} Our local guild has over 800 members. In fact, its so big that they have two separate meetings, with attendance at both around 300+ members. Its an insane turn out. She saved me from a sea of lonely. That size guild is one where you can definitely get lost. Thanks for not letting me get lost, Jackie.


So not only is she a friend in the guild, but she's a fabric designer for Benartex and she owns her own pattern company, Jackie Clark Designs. Her style is very soft and peaceful, and geared towards babies. I was fortunate enough to work with Jackie's fabrics for the cover of Baby's Boxes (RD2-012)
Jackie has generously donated 8 HALF YARD CUTS from her line. These fabrics are from her girl pallet, In The Nest, and boy pallet, Baby Business.

She has also donated 2 patterns from Jackie Clark Designs. The two titles are Sleepy Bags and {Little Flower} Pocket Top. You may have recently seen the cover of the Pocket Top pattern on the back of the Fons and Porter Baby Quilts Magazine.

To enter to win today's prize, simply leave a comment telling me if you make quilts for baby gifts.

I love to make quilts for baby gifts! Baby quilts are like 'comfort food' (comfort quilting?) The fabrics are great and since they are small they are good opportunities to try new things. I keep a little stack of quilts on hand. Right now I need to make some girlie quilts, as I only have one left!

Oh do make baby quilts! It's gotten so bad that relatives call me months ahead of the shower to give me time to make one. And truly, they are my favorite because the fabrics are so sweet!
I'd be ever so happy to make one with Jackie Clark fabrics, or perhaps the JUNK bag for me if I can't bear to part with them!!

I do make baby quilts for friends and relatives. I have made many what I call baby wraps- they are 4 clover leaf in shape and are great for a play mat or to wrap the baby up in their car seat.
The baby fabrics look fabulous.

Great nephew due in December, granddaughter due in January, and 2 extra tops for the next babies whoever that may be.
