Shannon Fabrics Fabric Giveaway

Sharing is caring!

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!!

  39. I love your puff quilts!!! I found you on Etsy a few months back. My second baby is due in May and I was searching for blanket patterns since I just bought my first sewing machine in December! We are not finding out the gender so a Suess quilt would be a good idea! No time to make one before the baby arrives though, we’re MOVING in June and there’s no way I can make a blanket before then ESPECIALLY while trying to sell the house (minky dust EVERYWHERE!) Eventually we will be settled again and I can break out the machine!

    Cute story about you and Shannon Fabrics!

    Thank you introducing me to Shannon Fabrics, I have been looking for a good distributor and their selection of minky is nothing short of amazing! (I have never seen the paisley minky before!)

    Together ya’ll create gorgeous things!

    I have yet to even plug the new machine in yet. But I wish to buy your puffy quilt patterns….I hate to ask this question…but it will allow you to understand how new I am…..does this pattern need to be copied on a copier?
    Cause I do not have a printer. What now?…what can I do. ??????
