Welcome summer! It’s officially summer vacation here – and we have a fast and furious June staring us in the face. Fortunately for all of you, I have really awesome giveaway to share today from sponsor, I Love Fabric!
I Love Fabric (ilovefabric) specializes in fresh, contemporary fabrics from Art Gallery, Robert Kaufman, Cotton + Steel, Moda and Free Spirit.
I Love Fabric is easy to navigate (one of the things I love most) and search for fabric by color, collection, designer, and manufacturer. Collections are really easy to see together and available to buy as fabric bundles, or individual yardage.
One brand new collection in stock is Amy Gibson’s Meriweather fabrics from Windham. This was one of my favorite collections featured at Quilt Market this spring. Isn’t that a gorgeous colorway?
If you’re familiar with the I Love Fabric blog, you are familiar with their What Goes With What series. Here’s a little more, in the words of I Love Fabric owner, Adrianne, about what that series is:
One of the most frustratingly joyful aspects of quilting is trying to select the solids to go with your prints. Not only is it hard choosing coordinating fabrics online when you can’t see the prints side by side, but there are also so many colors to choose from!
This is probably why our most popular blog series is our “What Goes With What” where we show a selection of solids that best compliments a fabric collection and photograph them together. Sometimes when I’m looking for inspiration, I’ll read over previous “What Goes With What” posts from a few years back. Quilting with solids is like painting on a brand new canvas.
This is also why we stock 500 solids and counting including Robert Kaufman’s Kona cottons, Free Spirit’s Designer Solids, Cotton + Steel’s Cotton Supreme solids, and Michael Miller’s Cotton Couture solids.
Here’s an example: What goes with Meriwether by Amy Gibson? We like these nine solids from Robert Kaufman.
- -Kona in Oyster
- -Kona in Watermelon
- -Kona in Med. Pink
- -Kona in Goldfish
- -Kona in Wasabi
- -Kona in Pond
- -Kona in Cypress
- -Kona in Nightfall
- -Kona in Ballerina
Here’s what the collection + the Kona solids look like together. Isn’t that a pretty palette? And a super helpful feature to help you find just the right solids to go with new fabric. And you could use the What Goes with What posts as a jumping-off point to pull your own fabrics in similar palettes. Read More What Goes With What posts for more color inspiration.
And guess what? Now that your mouth is drooling over these pretty fabrics, I Love Fabric has a Meriweather fat quarter bundle to giveaway to one of you! To enter, sign up for the ilovefabric newsletter and come back here to leave a comment telling me you’ve done so.
Giveaway open until Saturday, June 3 at midnight MST. GIVEAWAY CLOSED.
