I am really excited to share my first Blogger Bundle with you! For the past couple of months I have been working with a group of awesome quilt bloggers. They will be curating bundles of fabric from my shop for me and I will offer these as both fat quarter and half-yard bundles. It has been a really fun experience for me and I am learning!! There is always something new to be learned, isn’t there?
This month’s bundle was curated by Sarah Goer. She writes at Sarah Goer Quilts. A stay-at-home mom of two school age children, Sarah has a passion for fabric, color and quilting. She has (already!) taught her two young kiddos to quilt and they will have a quilt hanging at QuiltCon next month. Sarah and I became acquainted several years ago when we both were starting our blogs. Since then, we have worked together on several different projects; the most recent of which was when I pattern tested her new Scattered Squares pattern. I really admire Sarah’s use of color. Her newsletters always contain a few fresh palettes to inspire the reader. I enjoy seeing the suggested colors she offers up.
When she agreed to put a bundle together, I knew I would like it! Honestly, this experience has been so interesting. I am in my shop each day working with these fabrics; cutting orders and shipping them off to customers. But seeing the collections that someone else puts together reminds me that there are endless combinations to be made with those yummy bolts I have downstairs!
Sarah chose a grouping of teal blue, gray, navy blue and yellow. I was surprised there was no purple in the bundle as that is often a go-to color for Sarah. 🙂
But this bundle works! It is really vibrant and bright! This collection includes the following:
- Terra Firma Sunlit – from Maureen Cracknell’s Garden Dreamer line
- Dots in Gray from Red Rooster’s Basically Low line
- Atomic Web from Michael Miller’s Sassy Cat line
- Sashiko Florette in Teal from BariJ’s Wild Bloom line
- Frogland Friends Coordinate by Henry Glass
What do you think of this bundle? I am curious to hear your opinions. Also, Sarah has a post up today talking about our project and she even has a bundle to give away to a lucky reader. Hop over and take a peek. Maybe this is your lucky day?
Of course the bundle is also offered in my shop. It will be on sale today and tomorrow only, for 20% off!! (No coupon code needed.) Prices go back to normal on Friday!
It would be fun to learn more about curating bundles. I really like that gold fabric, but then I’m pretty sold on Maureen Cracknell’s Garden Dreamer line. I’m hoarding my scraps of it leftover from the wedding quilt! I do like the combination of colors in the bundle. What fun you are having!
I am definitely having fun! It is crazy how we become attached to a certain fabric(s) and don’t want to lose the scraps to the rest of the pile. I have some Alison Glass scraps that I keep separate and some Cotton and Steel – Using them to the last bits. 🙂
How fun for Sarah to create her own bundle from your shop! Super idea, Bernie! I really like her choices, even though they are out of my “usual” colors. They’d look great in many projects!
It was so fun to see what she selected – I look at these fabrics constantly and yet wouldn’t have thought to pull this group. Endless creativity! Hoping you popped over to her blog post to see what she is creating with the fabric. 🙂
The pop of yellow is beautiful in the grouping, especially right now when we are in winter. It makes a warm and vibrant grouping!
I agree! Grays and blues for these rainy days we are enjoying and a pop of yellow for brighter days up ahead! Sarah did a great job.
I think it’s good but needs another darker gray.
I agree. I didn’t have one available in the shop but Sarah did add a dark gray to it when she started the quilt she is making. Good idea!
Okay, first of all, Blogger Bundles are sooo fun! Two, SO glad you are lining some up! Third, this is really really good! Well done Sarah!!! I bet it is great fun to see how others put together “your” fabrics! I will look forward to upcoming bundles, too!!!!
For sure! It has been a lot of fun for me to get to know the other bloggers in a new way. Each has their own tastes and preferences so each bundle is sure to be unique. I’m glad you enjoy this sort of thing. 🙂
How do I get to your shop? Are you just brick & mortar or online too?
Hi Sue: Thanks for your note. I am available online. I don’t have a brick and mortar shop, I work out of my home. If you go to the top of the page on my blog, click on “My Shop” and you will get to the shop. Also, you could type this in your browser:
That should get you there as well. If you have questions, send them my way. I am happy to help! [email protected]
This is a super attractive bundle! I love the colors, love the prints combined together.
Thank you Lynette. Sarah has lovely taste and she shows it with this selection. Have a great weekend!!
Sarah picked a beautiful bundle! I love the combo of the yellows and teal/blues.
I agree. Sarah did such a nice job with this bundle. She has designed a baby quilt with them and it is looking really cool.
Beautiful fabrics and colors. I always enjoy blogger bundles and inspiration. Thank you … 🙂 Pat
The colors are ones that I wouldn’t have paired, which is why I LOVE seeing bundles that others have curated! The teals and blues are fantastic, but that pop of yellow…so needed this time of the year!
I like it! I do think it needs a little something else, though, as some others have said, either a dark grey, or choose a different navy that doesn’t have so much white in it, because I sure like the navy in there! What a fun thing you are doing! 🙂 Hopping over to visit Sarah now.
That would be a nice addition to the bundle. Good luck in Sarah’s giveaway!!
