Mmmmm fabric...

I am attempting the impossible. Picking out a FQ bundle of fabrics for my sister's 30th birthday. Our tastes are very different although we do share a love of green. So going off some fabric discssion, I've gone with green, white and black.

Why am I putting them together in a pretty mosaic like a fancy-pants store bought bundle? For a competition of course! You could join in too! Details are over at I'm a Ginger Monkey's blog. It's being sponsored by Pink Castle Fabrics and you have a chance to win the bundle you have created! Ooh how fun is that?! Just "borrow" the photos from Pink Castle's website, then make them into a mosaic at Big Huge Labs. It's free and fairly easy (I put my photos in Flickr first so I could find them easily for the mosiac maker).

I ought to mention, I did try to pick out fabrics over the phone with my sister (she's living in NZ, training to be a helicopter pilot. Yeah, I'm the boring sister) but to the fabricly uninitiated, fabric shopping is apparently very stressful and overwhelming. What? There can be too many fabrics to look at? Surely not. Clearly she does not have a quilter's heart.

The fabrics I have picked for this bundle are (in order):

Mono Pez in Black Pezzy Prints by American Jane
Little Flowers in Licorice Black and White Ann Kelle Remix
Timeless Treasures Sketch Crosshatch in Grass Green (how delicious is this!)
Hello Pilgrim Jewels in Emerald by Lizzy House
That's It Dot in Black by Michael Miller
Hello Pilgrim Leaves and Berries in Green by Lizzy House
Metro Living Circles in Black by Robert Kaufman
Bella Solids Black by Moda
Woodgrain in Green Woodlands by Khristian A Howell
Big Dot Black on White Annie's Farm Stand Lakehouse Dry Goods
Circles in Meadow Green Modern Whimsy by Laurie Wisbrun
Kona Solid White

Oh and with this competition, you can enter more than once! But inlinkz won't let you use the same link so I'll pop my second bundle in a separate blog post. Ooh two posts in one day! What is my blog world coming to?!


  1. Nice choices. You really do need to educate your sister, fabric choosing is the ideal occupation to relieve stress, it is a well-known fact!!

  2. Ooh, I love that green and black combo - I think you could start a new trend. I also love that sea grass fabric. So much fabric, so little time!!

  3. Love green and black. Great fabric choices =D


Thank you so much for taking the time to leave a comment. I read each and every word! I'll do my best to reply to them either via email or here on the blog, when time permits!
