March Blogger Bundle by Yvonne Fuchs, Quilting Jetgirl

Yesterday was the first day of spring though for much of the country it doesn’t feel like it.  Today I want to provide a glimpse of spring with this month’s Blogger Bundle.  Curated by my friend, Yvonne Fuchs of Quilting Jetgirl, this bright, cheerful bundle is filled with vivid color. On the off chance you aren’t familiar with Yvonne, she is a blogger, modern quilter and pattern designer who lives in Southern California with her husband and Puppy the cat.  I met her several years ago and since then she has been a constant source of information and inspiration to me and her many readers. She is involved with the Quilters Planner, was a leader in the New Quilt Bloggers Blog Hop for several years, and is actively involved with the Modern Quilt Guild.  All that being said, the most valuable facet of Yvonne’s work is her effort to build community within both the quilter’s on-line and ‘in-person’ communities. I greatly appreciate how Yvonne tirelessly supports each of these.

Let’s look at the bundle she curated!  It contains fabric from across lines in shades of pink, yellow and green.  There is a delightful ‘rainbow’ component to this selection which includes pieces fro Art Gallery Fabrics, Windham Fabrics and Henry Glass Fabrics. Yvonne chose to use pieces designed by Maureen Cracknell, Carrie Bloomston (one of my all time favorite designers), Kim Diehl and Dana Willard.

As usual for me, the bundle surprised me.  I can totally see putting the pink arrows with the two rainbow fabrics.  But when she added the cheddar yellow (from Maureen Cracknell’s Garden Dreamer, and the grassy green and rich rust fabrics from Bloomston’s Dreamer line, the collection became richer and more sophisticated.  I was pleasantly surprised by this. Each month, working with these quilters, watching them pull colors together, I learn more and more.

For more information, please click here to read Yvonne’s Blogger Bundle post. She has one bundle to share with a luck winner too!  As before, this bundle is available in my shop and is on sale today through Friday. (One thing to note:  I am leaving Friday night for a week with my son and his family.  So orders placed before 3pm on Friday will ship by Friday afternoon.  Orders placed after that will wait until my return and will ship on Monday, April 2nd. If you have questions, email me at needleandfoot@gmail.com or leave them in the comments.

Thank you to Yvonne for creating this pretty bundle and brightening our day with it. It will no doubt add color to many quilter’s stash!

    I am loving these fabrics together. Like you I’m not sure I would have went for the cheddar and green, but they totally make this bundle sing.

    Another awesome bundle, Bernie! I have it in my cart (so you can pull me from the drawing, since I’ve already won once before). Enjoy your visit with your son and his family!

      Thank you Wendy — I am so excited to see the kids and especially my grand daughter. She is changing so much and we don’t see enough of her. Thanks for shopping with me and I am so happy you are enjoying the bundles. 🙂

    Bernie, you are such a creative woman asking other creatives to put together a bundle of fabrics! It’s always inspiring to see what each puts together. Yvonne’s is so bright and cheerful!

      Hi Kathy, it has been so helpful to me. As much as I love fabric, color combination is a challenge for me. So to see what these quilters choose is enlightening and really informative. I am happy to hear you are enjoying the series! I am already excited to publish the April bundle!!!

      For sure! We are going to have a blast. Nothing like spring break in Vermont. Sun and sand. Break out the swim suits and sunblock. Hahaha.
      Doesn’t matter. I can’t wait. She is walking and has a couple of words. By the week’s end, I hope she is saying Grammy. 🙂

    As much as I love looking at fabric, the “pull” is something I struggle with. Like you I am learning so much from viewing the fabrics chosen by others for your bundles. I’m not sure what it is exactly I’m learning, maybe to consider all possibilities and have more patience, give it more time? Whatever it is, I look forward to seeing the bundles!

      You and I are very similar. Sometimes I think we just need to practice. I remember a while back Amanda Jean at Crazy Mom Quilts did a thing where she gave prompts or themes and we pulled a stack to fit that. It was a good exercise. Maybe when I get back from Vermont, we should do something like that?
