Thought that would get your attention.

I’m so excited to be able to work with Josephine Kimberling’s Just Dandy (Robert Kaufman) for one of my upcoming patterns. It’s beautiful! I mean, I love it in the pictures online, but seeing it and working with it in person is another thing entirely. It’s simply intoxicating. The prints play so nicely together, and there’s just enough unpredictability in the colors to make it really, truly unique. (That yellow? Swoon.)

So, to celebrate spring (yay!) and to reward you lovely people for being patient with my lack of attention around here, a fat quarter bundle, just for you.

I’m not above bribery.

To put your name in for this little pretty, leave a comment telling me what your favorite color (or colors!) are to create with. If you want more than one entry? Follow me on Twitter, like on facebook, subscribe to the newsletter, or the feed, tweet about it, blog about it. Technically, my friends, you could get in to win this thing 7 times. Oh, and if you’ll leave a separate comment for each entry (and link me to your post/tweet if you did those), that will help me make sure you get counted the right number of times. If you’re already following/friending/liking/subscribing/whatever, just tell me that in the comment. Totally still counts!

Winner will be chosen Friday, May 6th.

In other news, I’ll be listing some of my extra precut fabrics in the shop in the next day or two. Gotta do some spring cleaning in my studio. Seriously. The place is overflowing. Besides, I’m fairly sure you guys can always find a place for Bliss, Fandango, City Weekend, Simple Abundance…just to name a few. A couple of these lines haven’t been easy to find of late. You could get lucky! Keep your eyes peeled.

Next week? New patterns! I can hardly wait to show you the amazing work Natalia did on the quilting. Honestly? That girl is a machine quilting goddess.

Mwa! (And get those entries in!)

    I love the turquoise/aqua/sky blue family…in fact, I have to stop myself from using one of those colors every time I start a new project or else my house is going to end up monochromatic!

    I love bright colors . . . . kind of a new direction for me. I usually quilt with country colors but my 12 yr. old daughter is turning me on to rainbow colors with white contrast.

    I dont’ know if I have just one color that I prefer to work with, I love them all! Most recently I made a quilt for my daughter from the line of fabric called “Happy”, it is full of really bright colors, and so I think I’ll say “bright” is my favorite color to work with. :)
