PRIZES IN THE MIX

We're on week 2 of our COMING UP ROSES Blog Tour.  Todays post is on the Aurifil Blog--Auribuzz.  You can find it here:

https://auribuzz.wordpress.com/2017/07/13/coming-up-roses-penny-in-the-city/

Kate Brennan in the Chicago office made a FABULOUS Mariner's Compass quilt with the blues in the collection, and it is so pretty!  I am in love!  You just have to go over and see it.

I have decided to add even more fun to this tour by offering a few prizes.  We all love winning free stuff, right?  So, every week after you visit the blog of the week*,  leave a comment here on my blog on the Thursday post.  If you comment each week, you will be entered to win a bit of fabric from this collection!  I think I will give away a few pre-cuts.  YUM!

This week I quickly put together a new table runner from the COMING UP ROSES collection.


It was lots of fun and quick to make because I used my template set, Perfect Pieces-Wedges.


More about this later.  

Please join me on the Blog Tour and hopefully you could win some prizes!

Love the projects so far! The fabrics look as gorgeous as they did when I saw them in Paducah. It's so much fun seeing all the different projects made with them.

The templates are fun, too. The dotted lines marking the center will be helpful with fussy cutting, I think.

Very interesting use of the floral fabric! I would have never thought to use it in a mariners compass but it turned out great.

I loved the fun circle quilt. Keep them coming

Carol Hydeman said...

I love the new fabrics. I gravitate toward the blues and these are outstanding. The templates are exciting. I have several ideas in mind for both the fabric line and the templates. Of course, I love everything you do, Jill.

Laura said...

I love blog hops because they introduce me to new people, techniques, ideas, inspiration. Thanks for the ideas for using the templates as well.

Janie said...

This collection is very bold, I really like it. The color combinations are beautiful. Thank you for showing the projects. I loved the compass quilt.

Farm Quilter said...

Amazing how fussy cutting can totally enhance a quilt! Love your roses!

Beth said...

I loved the way your roses changed the feel of a very familiar, traditional block. I look forward to seeing what this collection will bring to other quilty creations.

sharon said...

Mariner's compass quilt itself is gorgeous but I thank you for pointing me in its direction..... Chicago, my home town, is one of the world's most beautiful cities and though I love living on a farm in another state now, Chicago still tugs.
Fun to see your fabrics being adopted and adapted in such diversely creative ways. And isn't this the ongoing delight of a fabric designer???

Helen L said...

that Mariners Compass quilt is quite stunning, isn't it! And I see that you have been sewing in your favorite color again! :-) Love your table runner! Hugs, H in Healdsburg
