Quite Contrary Fat Quarter *Giveaway*

February 16th, 2011

My very first fabric line Quite Contrary from Riley Blake was released at Quilt Market a few months ago. I finally got my paws on some and am completely in love. It’s perfect for spring and summer sewing projects, quilts, little girl dresses and more. I’m thinking napkins and quilted table runner for Easter. My favorite pattern is the strawberries with the white background and since I don’t have any girls, I’m thinking I need to make a super girly ruffled apron for myself.

Enough about me… I want to share the love with you all and give away a set of fat quarters or 2 or 3 or 4… do you want to win a set???

Do one, or all of the following and leave a seperate comment for each:

1. Subscribe to my RSS feed

2. Follow me on facebook

3. Blog about my giveaway

4. Post about the giveaway on your facebook wall.

5. Leave a comment telling me what project you would love to make with this fabric.

For every 100 comments I receive, I’ll give away 1 full set of 21 fat quarters (up to 4 sets). So tell your friends! The more comments I get, the more I’ll give away!

All entries are due by Friday February 25th, 12 pm PST. Winners will be announced Monday, February 28th.

If you are interested in purchasing this fabric here are few online stores that carry various patterns from the collection:

Spice Berry Cottage

Fat Quarter Shop

Hawthorn Threads

I’m sure there are a lot more out there as well as some etsy sellers. Also be sure to support your local quilt shop and ask them to order it in if they don’t already carry it.

Happy quilting/sewing/fabric collecting!

    I posted about your giveaway on my blog and Facebook. Hmm, what would I do with your pretty fabric? My resolution for 2011 was I was going to make a quilt this year. In these first two months, I’ve started and finished two; enrolled in a block-of-the-month subscription; and am already planning quilts three through five. I also enjoy making sewn gifts for friends—mostly zipper coin purses or wallets—perfect uses for fat quarters! If I win, know that your fat quarters will have a good home!

    OOoooh!! I love this fabric!!! I’ve got 3 boys, so I would definitely be doing likewise and making something girly for myself!! Although, a close friend just had a baby girl yesterday, so I could have spoiling her!!! And I love the idea of making napkins…I’m so new to sewing I hadn’t thought of that. LOL

    I “was” a quilt designer years ago and moved onto other mediums as my artistic talents grew. I still find myself drawn back to sewing when I see wonderful fabrics like these! Looking at all the fun small patterns….I picture some awesome tote/purses and wallets in their future to share with my 2 daughters and my cousin who is a strawberry nut!!!!
