April blogger bundle

April Blogger Bundle, by Cheryl Brickey

It is time again!  I have a new blogger bundle to share with you.  This month’s bundle was curated by the talented Cheryl Brickey of Meadow Mist Designs. Many of you know Cheryl through her wildly popular mystery quilt event that she hosts annually. I have a confession.  I haven’t done one of these yet because I feel intimidated by the process.  I know, kinda weird but it’s true.  I may have to jump on board with the next one though because I have always loved seeing the amazing quilts made by the participants of these events!  Cheryl is an engineer by day,  a very talented quilter and pattern designer by night and a wife and mom 24 x 7.  Many of the patterns in her shop  are modern takes on some classic blocks.  She also recently co-authored the book, Modern Plus Quilts, with Paige Alexander.  Cheryl must be incredibly organized to be able to accomplish all that she does!

I was excited when Cheryl agreed to curate a bundle for me because I so admire her style.  The bundle does not disappoint. She chose a selection made entirely by Art Gallery Fabrics.  Designers of these pieces include Maureen Cracknell, Katarina Roccella, Angela Walters, Pat Bravo and Sharon Holland.

The palette of black, white, navy and yellow is sophisticated and modern.  But the blue piece from Sharon Holland’s Bountiful line softens it just the right amount.

Another aspect of this collection that is really pleasing is the relationship between the Scenic Blue Sky fabric and the yellow Terra Firma Sunlit.  The bits of yellow used to accent the cozy farmhouses on the blue print is emphasized when placed with the yellow of the Terra Firma Sunlit piece.  I love this because it just pulls everything together.  Kudos to Cheryl on the selection of such a pretty bundle.

As before, this bundle is listed in my shop in both fat quarter cuts and 1/2 yard cuts.  The price is reduced by 20% today through Saturday.  Also, Cheryl is holding a giveaway on her site so one lucky reader will win a fat quarter bundle.  Be sure to go check out the project Cheryl made with these fabrics.  It will be fun for you to see how she utilized the fabrics.

I would love to hear your thoughts on this collection.  Leave me a note in the comments!

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!

Blogger Bundle – Kitty Wilkins of Night Quilter

This month I am excited to share a new blogger bundle with you!  It was curated by Kitty Wilkins, blogger, quilter and incredible photographer.  Be sure to check out her work at Night Quilter. I first got to know Kitty when she and Stephanie Palmer (Late Night Quilter) teamed up and created the very popular Facebook group, Late Night Quilters.  Kitty was also one of the bloggers who supported the grand opening of my fabric shop last March.  She is a very talented person and I was so pleased when she agreed to create the blogger bundle for February.

I knew I was in for a treat when Kitty emailed me with a suggested bundle.  She pulled fabric from several different lines. I believe her starting point was Tartan Field Midnight from the Bountiful line designed by Sharon Holland for Art Gallery Fabric. She built from here and added two more Art Gallery pieces, Twinkle Star Berry and Sashiko Florette in Teal. I was really surprised to see the tiny orange stars twinkling across Twinkle Star Berry are the perfect match to the orange in the Tartan Field Midnight.  I had no doubt about Kitty’s skill with color but yikes!  These pieces are really complementary.  Then she added a light blue Color Weave by PB Textiles.  This blue works great with Tartan Field. Go Kitty!  Finally, she chose a piece by Alison Glass (Knowing what a fan Kitty is of Alison’s fabric, I was not at all surprised to see her pull from this line.) The green fabric is called Numbered (in Grasshopper) and it works wonderfully with Tartan Field.

Kitty knocked this one out of the park.  I love the choices she made. This is such a great learning experience for me. I am enjoying talking about color and fabric each month as the blogger groups pieces together that I may not have thought to put together.

Kitty has more to say about her choices with this bundle.  Please click here to read more about this bundle of color.  Also, she has a bundle to give away to one lucky winner.  You’ll need to check her post out to learn how to enter.

Finally, this Blogger Bundle is available beginning today in my shop.  It is on sale for 20% off through Saturday, February 24th.  No coupon code needed, the price is adjusted for you. Come over and take a look.

I hope you are enjoying the blogger bundle posts each month.  You are in for a treat in March when I share the bundle curated by Yvonne Fuchs, of Quilting Jetgirl!  See you then.

Blogger Bundle – Sarah Goer Quilts

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!
