Today Is My Day

Well, today is Sept. 25th and it is my turn to blog on the Henry Glass/Jaftex Blog Hop.  As usual, I stayed up way too late last night.  I've been working on five new fabric collections (yes, I meant to say FIVE).  When my brain gets going it is sometimes hard to shut it off - so alas, that is why I have such trouble sleeping.  But I shipped 3 new collections off yesterday afternoon, finished another later yesterday in the day and made a start on the 5th so I'm feeling pretty good.  The first one I worked on was a taupe/red group.  If you saw Stroll Along the Seine at your local quilt shop, then this is the next collection in this series.  I am pleased to say that Stroll Along the Seine was successful both international and at home.  In fact, there are two women in Germany who make traditional German dresses (which by the way are BEAUTIFUL - they gave me a little look at their catalog) and this collection made it into their designs. 

But now for the fun.  I have 5 prizes to give away.  And don't forget to go to the Henry Glass Fabrics website because they have lots of fun giveaways too.  If you post a comment about the fat quarters you would like to win, then I'll be giving them away on Sun.  I'll post the winners and then you can get me your mailing address.  I'm sorry but we can only give fat quarters away to US residents.  We love our customers overseas but the shipping costs would be prohibitive for this giveaway.

Here's the first bundle - all tied up pretty with the lovely Henry Glass Fabrics ribbon.


If you would like to win this bundle just mention Bundle #1 - there are 18 wonderful fat quarters from the Folio collection.

The next bundle - Bundle #2 - I'm calling the Autumn Bundle - which has 9 fat quarters from the Folio collection.


Here's Bundle #3 - There are 8 fat quarters with some lovely "midnight" colors.


And the bundles keep on coming.  Here's Bundle #4 with 9 fat quarters - probably my favorite because there are lots of light colors.  My latest shabby chic collection, Tranquil Garden, is shipping next month.  And I absolutely love the soft subtle colors.  One of the new collections I shipped off yesterday was the next shabby chic group.  It is my third shabby chic group - first was Gentle Garden, then Tranquil Garden and now ???.  I picked a name - but maybe you can think of one for me.  Sometimes the fabric design comes pretty easy, but then the name just doesn't come.


This is the last bundle - Bundle #5.  More from the Folio collection.  There are 6 fat quarters. This one I'm calling Sunset because you can see purples, reds and pinks from my deck as the sun goes down.  Absolutely beautiful.  Speaking of red - the collection I finished up yesterday afternoon is another red and white group.  My first red and white collection was A Year of Love.  I'm stumped on a name for this next group so right now it is called "Unnamed".  Clever, right?  Any ideas for me?
 

So that's the end of our fun day.  Well actually, my fun day is going to continue because my husband and I have a date night tonight.  We're going to the movies and then dinner.  But I hope you enjoy your day and please comment for a chance to win.  And remember, add your comments to Henry Glass Fabrics blog too for a chance to win other goodies.  Don't forget to check our blog on Sunday to find out the winners.

  2. So many beautiful choices all tied up in a bow. Any color way would be most appreciated but I am trying to work outside of my usual color zones, I even had a friend who is color opposite from me chose all the fabric for a recent project. So, if I was picking I am going for #4.

  4. My favorite bundle is #2. I love autumn colors! I wish I could help you with the names, but that is a very hard thing to come up with. Hopefully, you will get some wonderful suggestions. I can't wait to see the new lines in the store.

  13. i like the odd numbers!! lol
    number 1 would be a surprise with what is in it.
    love the colors in 3 and 5!!!

  14. Bundle #3 (midnight colors) caught my eye - probably because of the pop of lime green. My second choice would be bundle #4 because the soft colors would be perfect for a charity quilt for the kids' chemo unit where I donate quilts.

  15. Oh gosh, I like what most everyone else likes... #4. :\ My first grandbaby was born almost 4 months ago, so those colors would make a nice baby quilt.

    ReplyDelete
  73. #4 reminds me of crossing the painted desert when I was a child. The colors looking across the horizon were soft and beautiful. I see a lap quilt with gently curves. How pretty. Thanks.
