I have been so excited for this last Blogger Bundle event of 2018! Throughout the year it has been such fun to share specially curated bundles of fabric with you. This has allowed me to work closely with eleven different bloggers as they created a collection and then made something special with it. Many of you have bought them and enjoyed these unique bundles too. As the year progressed, I knew I wanted to do something special to wrap it all up at the end of the year. That is exactly what is going to happen today! Warning, this post is a bit on the long side. Sit back, have some tea and enjoy!
Each blogger’s collection was available for a limited time only so they are no longer listed in the shop. Now it is your turn to take another look good look at each of them. I would love for each of you to review the bundles that were curated and sold each month. Then I want to ask you to vote using the form at the end of this post and tell me which bundle is your favorite. This is only for fun. Although, really, just think of the amazing bragging rights it will provide the winning blogger with!! She will have this new feather in her cap – winning the incredibly prestigious honor of having been voted curator of the favorite Needle & Foot 2018 Blogger Bundle! Yikes, it will be life changing for her. Haha – not really. But it will be fun to see which bundle, of all of these gorgeous collections, is the most well received.
Wait – there is more!!! Each month as these bundles were promoted, I held one back, resulting in this lovely array of amazing fabric!
As a special way to wrap up the year, I will be giving away the full collection of eleven fat quarter bundles to one very lucky reader. There will be a random drawing from all who vote and one person will win the entire set of blogger bundles! What a great way to add some fantastic bundles to your stash. Think of all you could create in 2019 with these!
To vote, you will need to take a look at each bundle. (Please vote only one time!) International readers, I am happy to have you vote but you won’t be eligible for the giveaway. The package will be too heavy, and thus costly, for me to mail out of the country.
So here we go – 2018 Blogger Bundles on parade! You have seen these photos before but it may help you to see them all in one place to jog your memory.
January was the first bundle and it was designed by Sarah Goer of Sarah Goer Quilts. Did you know Sarah is now available to teach at your guild? Check out her info here if you are interested!
The second bundle (February) was created by Kitty of NightQuilter.com. Be sure to check out Kitty’s Craftsy site to see her selection of paper pieced patterns!
In March I worked with Yvonne of Quilting Jetgirl for the monthly collection. You might enjoy taking a peek at the collection of modern patterns designed by Yvonne. They are stunning and many use her color transparency methods with excellent results.
Cheryl curated the April bundle. She blogs at Meadow Mist Designs. You may have heard Cheryl co-authored her first book, Modern Pus Sign Quilts, this year. It is a great book and you can take a look at it here.
The whimsical bundle for May was chosen by Jayne of Twiggy & Opal. Jayne is the queen of truly incredible improv and a constant inspiration to me. Check out her shop here. You will be happy you did!
Summer came along with this lovely bundle fo June, curated by Paige of Quilted Blooms. Paige is the other author of Modern Plus Sign Quilts book. It is available here (no affiliate link).
Working on the July Blogger Bundle was a delight and it gave me the opportunity to get to know Kim Soper of Leland Ave Studios. She is an amazing artist and her curated bundle did not disappoint! Kim just finished the In Our Own Words quilt which is truly spectacular. Please take a look1
Carole, of From My Carolina Home, did an outstanding job with the bundle for September! She was just a pleasure to work with as well. Have you seen her series of Scrap Dance patterns? I just love each one of them!
September came along and there was a pretty bundle curated by Mari of Academic Quilter. Mari has been such a contributor to our quilting community with her wonderful block of the month events each year. Her tutorials are so well written and all are available other blog!
October brought a unique bundle created by Kim of Persimon Dreams. You probably know of Kim from her popular Project Quilting event that happens annually. Will you be participating this year? I love the event and happily sponsor a prize or two for it.
Last, but certainly not least, is the November bundle. This stunner was created by Sandra of MMM! Quilts. Most of you know Sandra and what a bundle of energy she is. It shows in this great collection. Sandra has been designing patterns for a bit (On the Plus Side is my favorite) and has them available here.
I hope this jogged your memory of the bundles we enjoyed this year. Now it is your turn. Please use the form below to cast just ONE vote for your favorite bundle!! Voting is open all week, through the end of the day on Saturday, December 15th. One vote per person please! I can’t wait to see the results!! Good luck everyone.
Love the September bundle by Mari Heidt. The colors are so happy!
Bernie, I had so much fun curating the June bundle! All the bundles are beautiful together! Wow, you are going to make someone’s Christmas very happy! Thank you for your generosity!
This was lots of fun throughout the year! All the bundles were fun. Wish I could have picked up one of each.
Oh my goodness. It’s so difficult to choose! Each bundle is so beautiful!
Thank you for the opportunity to have all this wonderful fabric.
Hi Bernie! Wowee – what a fabulous collection. I somehow missed a few months in there, darn it. Picking just one favorite was very difficult, and it sure will be fun to see who the ultimate winner for the FIRST prestigious honor will be. Thank you for offering this very incredible collection to one lucky winner! Happy Happy Tuesday to you. ~smile~ Roseanne
Well of course I have to go with February, I loved these fabrics. Wonderful give away.
I love the fabrics from February! So lovely.
June Quilted Blooms
This was hard, all so pretty.
I was surprised at how hard it was to choose a favorite! So many beautiful fabrics, hand crafted into fabulous bundles. You’re so generous to have given away so many of these so far. And best of luck to the winner of the whole, wonderful shebang!!
Good morning and congratulations to you and your bloggers! They have created a year of inspiration. I went back and checked out how each blogger used their bundle. WOW! I love then seeing the individual bundles at the end – less likely for me to vote for my favorite blogger but to vote for the color and design that sings to me. Thanks to all who worked so hard this past year creating such fun. Cant wait to see what 2019 brings.
My favorite collection is by Sarah Goer – loved the colors and textures in this group! Enjoy your blog! Thanks for all the information and fun you provide!
What fun! Thanks for this opportunity.
I’m all about MMM! quilts – love that bundle. I hope I voted right – wasn’t sure what “Option 1” meant but I checked it anyway. 🙂
Hahaha – when I read your comment, I was wondering what the heck Option 1 even was? I went back to look and it was a mistake so thank you for the heads up! Did you also vote for your favorite??
Yes I voted for Sandra. 😊
These are all such beautiful bundles.
Wow! I am excited for anyone who wins this fabulous collection of fabrics!
I vote for January…..but I also love March. haha they are all pretty exciting
Although I bought just one of your blogger bundles, I would love to have them all! It was fun to see each one again, and hard to choose a favorite. Thanks for an amazing giveaway, Bernie!
They’re all so great, but I love the bold, bright colors of November. Thanks for the awesome giveaway.
I’m with you, November’s colors are sublime!
What a fabric spectacular! Good luck to all that enter! Thank you Bernie for letting me be a part of your blogger bundle series!
Love the colors of July
August!!! I love the fall colors, and Caroline is one of my favorite bloggers. I love the way she delves right in to help her local community thru quilting.
So many wonderful bloggers, friends and bundles! There were so many first choices, it was sooo difficult to pick! You have a great shop Bernie, thanks so much for the fun throughout this yearand for this AMAZING giveaway!!! xo!
So many wonderful bloggers, friends and fabric bundles here, Bernie!!! Choosing just one was difficult at best! Thanks so much for all the fun throughout the year, and for such an amazing giveaway!!!!xo!
Beautiful bundles all…thank you for the great re-cap on the bloggers and their bundles!!
Bernie – I can tell you’ve had lots of fun with this give-away! Well thought out and fun to participate in, too. Thanks!
So many great choices. I narrowed it down to 3 but it was hard to choose just one. Thanks for the opportunity of a generous giveaway. I chose September but there are so many great options!1
Yes – so many pretty choices!! Good luck with the giveaway Elana!
They were all great! Good luck to everyone!
All the bundles looked lovely and it was difficult to choose among them. I finally decided on Sarah Goer’s (January) picks. She is a member of the same quilt guild as I am.
OH, that is fun that you know Sarah. I have only had the pleasure of working with her on-line even tho I only live several hours from the Bay Area. Good luck in the giveaway!
What a fun way to wrap up the year; I am sure someone is going to be thrilled to win the collection!
I hope so! It has been a wonderful year and this makes for a great finish. On to 2019!!!!
Did I miss the memo that YELLOW was the color of the year? Every single bundle includes some yellow!
Funny right? I guess yellow gives just the right pop!
So many beautiful bundles and such a hard choice to pick one favorite! This idea of a monthly curator bundle is genius, Bernie! I always look forward to the new selection and what is chosen. Happy Holidays to you!
Thanks Kathy! I am so glad you have enjoyed it. It was great fun for me as well. Happy Holidays to you too.
Great bundles. It was hard to choose but September just called out to me. Thanks for the chance to win such great fabrics.
Oh Bernie, I had such hard time choosing just one favorite. This is such a generous giveaway. You are the best.
This is just so difficult to choose one-each would make such an amazing quilt. Thanks for offering an amazing giveaway.
ALL the bundles are FABULOUS, so hard to choose! Thanks for the fun Bernie!
How great to see all the choices together. Such beautiful fabrics. Thank you for this bonus.
I loved them all but February colors were PERFECT.
What a fantastic giveaway and offer! Wow – thank you for doing this. I loved Mari’s September bundle. You have the BEST bundles and great fabrics – SO happy that I found you and your shop.
What a fun giveaway Bernie, thanks for putting this together. All of the fabric collections are beautiful, and it was hard to choose just one!
This was a fun blog hop and I enjoyed revisiting the blogs to see the fun, creative ways they used the bundles.
Wow…what a great collection of fabrics. It was hard to choose my favourite. I said I lived in the US because I have a US address I can use. I hope this was a successful venture for you.
Yay! I am glad you can join in then. Good Luck Anja!
The curated bundles were such fun! Thank you for including me and I look forward to working with you on future projects!
So many to choose from too! Thanks for the awesome giveaway 🙂
Wow! All beautiful collections. Well thought out as well. Thanks for sharing the chance at the great giveaway!!
I love them all. It’s difficult to choose. The August bundle got my vote since I love the fall of the year. Such beautiful collections. Thanks for giving us a chance in this fantastic giveaway.
What a fun event this year!!! Lucky us….to have another chance.
All of the bundles are beautiful – July is my birthday month and this would be a wonderful gift.
Thanks so much for this opportunity.
love them all but first choice: JANUARY and Would happily pay the shipping if I were to be chosen. Merry Christmas everyone
That is so sweet of you Gloria!! Good luck with the giveaway!
They are all beautiful, but I chose July
The decision was really tough but in the end I chose February.
I think May is my favorite but it is really hard to choose. They are all great
OMG! What fabulous colors & designs from all of them! How do I pick a fave? I keep changing my mind. They really are all fabulous! Thanks for the chance to win!! I’m going to pick August, I think. Wait…no….maybe September. But June is my birthday month. Hmmm… Oooo….I also love Februaty. And October & November. Nope….August. Maybe.
Fantastic giveaway! Thank you! 🙂
WOW! Was that a difficult choice to make! They were all beautiful, but Novembers bundle really stood out to me.
Thanks for the fun! I chose October.
November’s bundle sparked my creativity the most. The rich saturated colors spoke to me!
March is my favorite. Thanks for the fun giveaway.
Wonderful selections of fabric! So many good ideas!
Tough decision ! They are all lovely – can I choose all of them ? October , reminds me of fall which is my almost favorite season . I would be in fabric heaven if I won.
All then bundles are beautiful. It’s difficult to pick just one. Thanks for the opportunity
This has been so interesting . Thank you for the giveaway.
Was very hard to choose a bundle!
Love the mustard with blue in this bundle
Love the mustard yellow with blue in this bundle!
There is not a single bundle that I don’t like, so voting was quite challenging. 🙂 This is really a fun way to end the Blogger Bundle year and I enjoyed each month’s bundle and the projects associated with them. The project introduced me to a few new quilters and their wonderful work. Thank you!
Oh boy, all of those bundles are delicious! What a generous and happy giveaway event this will be for one lucky winner! Thanks for the opportunity!
I liked all of the bundles and considered how each fabric fit into my fabric stash.
All are gorgeous.
I found you through one of your blogger bundles! I believe it was Paige. So some of these are new to me. So hard to pick a favorite! Aren’t you smart (and generous!) to keep one bundle back from each month! It’s been a fun feature to see every month.
Mmmmm quilts is number one with a close second runner up!
I chose Paig Alexander’s June selection.
This is a difficult decision..which is my favorite???? I love to see how others combine colors since I am too conservative. I chose January, but I sure would like to see each of these combos in a quilt. It weems the quilt design calls out for certain colors, once I get one started.
Thank You for this opportunity to win such gorgeous fabric! What wonderful bundles, so hard to choose! But I did. 😃
I landed here from Paige’s blog, Quilted Blooms. Her project from her bundle was soooo good!
This was REALLLLY hard! So many beautiful choices!!!
The October collection is my favorite. Kim’s color sense is amazing! Thanks so much!
What a great set of collections! I ended up voting for July because the focus print grabbed my attention and the other fabrics added even more excitement. And July is my birth month. Thanks a lot.
So much fun! Thanks for the chance to peruse these lovely bundles again and have an opportunity to win too!
Wow! What an awesome prize!! That was super hard though-they are all so great!!!!
All collections are so gorgeous, choosing one was not easy. Thank you,Bernie, for the chance to win a fabulous giveaway.
WOW! What a generous giveaway of such gorgeous fabrics. All of these bundles were great, so choosing just one was difficult. Thanks for this offering.
The February bundle…Dreamy!!!
