Whisper – Giveaway!

Have you all been looking for little signs of the arrival of spring?  Living in California, spring is noticeable early on. My daffodils are done blooming and our fruit trees are leafing out, with all of their blossoms raining down. It is definitely spring here.

Another sign of spring is the gorgeous Windham Fabrics collection, Whisper, which was recently released and is now shipping at Brewstitched.  I love the gorgeous pallette used in this line. Soft, muted shades of blue, pink, and mustard yellow are used in this springtime collection. The fabric features various florals and sweet butterflies for a truly feminine feel. Sheryl, the owner of Brewstitched, would like to give four fat quarters to a lucky reader!

For those of you living in cold weather country, this is the perfect way to bring a bit of spring to your sewing room!


Sheryl sent me a few fat quarters of Whisper to play with. I immediately thought of our Downieville house. It could certainly use something cute hanging on the walls.


The pattern for this mini is one that I downloaded last winter during the Aurifil Designer Mini series. It was designed by Kim Jolly over at The Fat Quarter Shop. It’s been on my list to make for a while now and this was just the right opportunity. I added a scrap of bright yellow to make the center pop a bit.

One of the reasons I wanted to make a simple project was to practice some hand quilting. I have some spools of Pearle cotton floss that I have been itching to use.

IMG_20160316_4704I ditch quilted in several of the seams so that I wouldn’t have to worry about things slipping around as I hand quilted. Adding a bit of hand stitching makes just about anything look that much sweeter.

IMG_20160316_4705Stitching with Pearle Cotton was a treat. I will definitely keep practicing to increase the consistency of my stitching.

OK – Back to the Whisper giveaway! In order to enter, please take a peek over at Brewstitched. Sheryl has recently added some wonderful new fabrics to her shop.

    Oh, my! Just when I thought my living room couch with it’s blue, pink and butterscotch (and green) design was woefully out of date, those colors are back! I have been dreaming of making a quilt to hang over the couch with an oversized leaf design just like the shapes in the Whisper line. These fabrics would certainly be a fun part of it. It’s hard to pick a favorite, but those butterscotch leaves look delicious for a low volume background. Your wall quilt is fabulous, from the soft colors to the off-center square to the gorgeous hand quilting. Yay for you!! And what a good idea to anchor the fabric with some ditch quilting.

    Ha ha, and now thanks to you, I just started following Brewstitched on Instagram. I need to modernize my stash, and that looks like a good place to start!

    Hi….Ummmm….I love some of the Pat Bravo fabrics she has for sale—-especially the Floralism Azur….a deep, deep blue that just calls out “buy me”!.

  4. Kathy Mitchell Upton

    …I left Facebook and Instagram both last year but Brewstitches is among my “Favorite” Shops on Etsy.

    There are some very nice fabric choices here. I love the whisper leaves and I really adore the Cotton + Steel octopi. I think some of that will be finding its way into my stash soon. Thanks for the chance to win.

  6. Hayley

    Tough choice. The C+S is gorgeous or course but the new Pat Bravo Essentials II are really catching my eye

    I like the Art Gallery Arrow fabric – I have a project I could use that for! I have ordered from this shop and their service is very good!

    How would it be possible to choose one lovely favorite from Brewsitches. My goodness, she has curated a lovely spring-like collection! If I must choose, the AG avantgarde floral would be a favorite. Need to go back and do some window shopping, now!!

    Spring is definitely taking its sweet time getting to this part of the world. We just had 3 more inches of snow last weekend in NE Iowa! I could use some fresh fabrics to bring the warmer thoughts close. I’m a Joel Dewberry fan, so this fabric really caught my eye: Grey Modern Flower-Joel Dewberry-Free Spirit Fabrics-True Colors…so pretty!

    Your mini-quilt is delightful! I like the Type Pad Allusion fabric at Brewstitched. Thanks for the giveaway and thanks for your blog!

    Bernie , I love your little project. I have never tried quilting with pearl 8 and it looks beautiful. I definetly want to give it a try

  12. SarahZ

    I am so happy to make the acquaintance of Brewstitched!!! I enjoy the variety she carries and was happy to see the Joel Dewberry selections, especially the herringbones… 🙂 After a recent foray with perle cotton, I am hooked! Your Whisper mini is sweet as can be! Thank you both for the giveaway!

    Your mini is wonderful! I love everything but C&S is probably my favorite. Thanks for the opportunity to enter the giveaway.

  14. Susan Grancio

    Paint dots would be my favorite, for backgrounds. What a great well-curated group of fabrics,

  15. LizaA

    Your mini quilt is lovely– love the special touch of hand quilting. My favorite fabric is Bluebird.

  16. Chantal

    I love the little quilt you did with the new fabric. Big hand stitches was a very good idea as it adds a sweet little bit of colour in the whites. Very well done. I hopped over at Brewstitched and fell in love with Navy Mono Butterflies. It is just beautiful. Thanks for the chance to win. ;^)

    Oh, my! Sweet fabric line and delightful blog! I adore the butterscotch color way, and I’m going to follow you right now! Not because of the give away, either 😉

  19. Beth C.

    Enjoyed browsing a “new-to-me” fabric source. I really like the Ad Lib Blooms Quiet by Art Gallery. Thanks for offering us a chance of winning fabric! Beth in AL

    No freaking WAY!!! Pandas!!! I have to get some. And I had a serious talk with myself about NO MORE FABRIC, because I’ve been a tad bad this winter. My sister will DIE when I make something with them for her. So the panda bebe fabric by Cotton and Steel is my favourite! Thanks for this!
