Yay!! A fabulous fabric giveaway! Let me back up first…
So does everyone know my “Diamonds” quilt?
That aqua minky fabric in there (the super soft dimpled fabric) I originally found at Hobby Lobby about three and a half years ago. Well everything was going good, and the Diamonds quilt was (and still is) my most popular puff quilt. One day I was like ‘Hmm! I’m out of aqua minky!’ so I took myself to Hobby Loggy (as Lucas calls it) and dun-dun-DUN!! It was gone! No. more. aqua. minky. So what’s the big deal, Heidi? Just go somewhere else and get it! NO. It was NOWHERE to be found. Even online, the closest color was a Tiffany Blue which isn’t really even close to the same hue. Sad, sad day. For about a year I went without and then one day I was shopping in an independent quilt store and gasp! There it was!! There was the aqua fabric. I bought about five yards and looked carefully at the label to see the distributor. Shannon Fabrics. I HAD to remember that name since we were moving to another state.
And it turns out that Shannon Fabrics was a fan of mine too! They love the puff quilts and how much minky I use in them. So I’m SUPER excited to be partnering with them this year for a series of posts all about the wonderful uses of their fabric. They have already sent me some fabric to play with and it is just gorgeous. Their cuddle (minky) fabric is SO thick, plush, soft, etc. It is wonderful. I want to drape myself in it. It’s the perfect baby blanket fabric and they even sell double-sided minky to make a super fast blanket. You can find Shannon Fabrics at most independent quilt shops around the country. (Those boxes of rolled up minky are their blanket kits–so many fun fabrics in one box!)
Okay, onto my next point: It was Dr. Seuss’s birthday on Saturday. I just love Dr. Seuss. All his books are such classics and most of the movies made from his books are my kids’ favorites. And how CUTE would a Dr. Seuss puff quilt be? Shannon Fabrics has two really sweet collections of Dr. Seuss-inspired prints. And to help you make an adorable Dr. Seuss puff quilt of your own, they are giving away a Celebrate Seuss Quarter Kit Collection and three yards of minky dot in white, blue, and red–to coordinate with the Celebrate Seuss fabrics. These are all minky fabrics so that quilt would be the softest thing ever. Additionally, Fairfield is giving away a bag of poly-fil so you can stuff those little puffs in! AND of course I will giveaway my collection of puff quilt patterns in case you don’t have the pattern already. Basically everything you need to make a puff quilt! This is an amazing giveaway! Yay!!
Happy Birthday Dr. Seuss! Yay for Fabric Giveaway!
