lily!!! an obsessively fabricated giveaway **CLOSED**


In my last post, I told you I went to Market in support of my friend Lily Gonzales-Creed & here she is with Pat Fryer of Villa Rosa Designs. When I first walked around the corner to her booth, this is what I saw:


Doesn’t she look like the happiest person on the planet??! I’m talking children at Christmas time happiness, people… Love it.  Her booth had a split personality because she was debuting two collections for Windham Fabrics with very different themes, but a with a harmonious color palette.  I remember sitting with her and Kim Place at Epoch Coffee a few months ago when she pulled out all the paper elevations to her booth design & thinking, “How on earth is she going to cram all of that in there??” But she did! And it was perfect!


One side featured the line Farm to Fork and her flying pigs made from the bacon print were just about the cutest things ever. She also designed a quilt that will be a free pattern when the fabric releases in April 2014:


The other side of the booth featured the line Ninjas Don’t Sweat (which also comes out next April) and I totally spaced on getting a good photo of her Octopus with throwing stars! Argh. But you can see it over on her blog, plus all of the cool things Kim made her to go in the booth- including all of her dresses! OMG. She had a different handmade outfit from Kim for every day on the show floor. I managed to sew up that quilt up there in the second photo and it’s called Flying Stars.  It (and Lily’s Farm to Fork quilt) were quilted by Jessica Darling of Remnants:Fiber[Culture]. Hopefully, it will also be a free pattern for Windham this Spring.  Woot!

So, let’s get to the giveaway part of the post!  I was lucky enough to get some free fabric from Lily- okay, I may have ran out of her house with it while she wasn’t looking- and I think it would be great to share it with some of my readers, along with some sweet Quilt Market swag, of course.  One person will win some fat quarters (some prints might be smaller, though) of Farm to Fork:


And another will win some fat quarter-ish pieces of Ninjas Don’t Sweat:


And both winners will have some random swag thrown in, like thread or magazines or more fabric. Who knows?! So, all you have to do is leave a comment saying which fabric line you want & also tell me what project you’re working on right now.  After I post this, I have to get hopping on my Schnitzel & Boo mini quilt swap project!  My swap partner lives overseas, so I want to ship it out early. You have until Sunday, November 3rd at midnight to comment and I’ll announce the winners on Monday around noontime CST.  Good luck and Happy Wednesday!! -r

    Fabulous prints and fabrications! I’d choose Farm to Fork–so delectable, even though I don’t eat bacon or chops. I think the prints are darling.

  2. Lauren aka Giddy99 says:

    I find them both adorable, but if I had to pick one, I’d say farm to fork. I could make something for my mom, she just bought her own farm!

  3. Kathi B says:

    I think both lines are fabulous, but would love a chance to work with the Ninjas Don’t Sweat prints. Right now I am working on a non-quilty project…hats for my grand nieces and nephews, ages 6 mo-7 yrs.

    Love seeing all the photos from Market. I think I’d have a huge smile like Lily and be jumping up and down if I went to Market as well, hehe. Both fabric lines are darling but my first choice would be the Ninjas. That’s my grandson’s costume this Halloween.

    Thank you for a super giveaway and a chance to win.

    Oh for the opportunity to go to quilt market ;-( I’m glad you had a nice time. I’m currently quilting a quilt for my daughter – I’m determined to get the quilting finished before the end of the day tomorrow!

    I’s a hard one but I think I prefer the farm to fork bundle. Thanks x
