Our Latest Magazine and a Fabric Giveaway

Most days, working at Quilting Arts Magazine is like being a kid in a candy store–if that kid is a quilter and the candy fabric, notions, and accessories, that is. Fabric, quilts, magazines, and books are our stock-in-trade.

We're giving away this Moda fabric.
Don't miss your chance to win it!

Recently, the Winter 2012/2013 issue of International Quilt Festival: Quilt Scene came in. It is full of beautiful quilts, fun projects, and more. Order it now and you won't have to wait for it to be on the newsstand!

One project, the Rolling Ball Table Runner by Brigitte Heitland, features a Moda fabric line Brigitte designed for Zen Chic called Juggling Summer. This is her premier collection for Moda, and it features a European flair and a fresh color palette. I especially love the variety of circles–they positively bounce!

We received six samples of Brigitte's fabric, graciously sent by Moda, to help us photograph the project for the magazine. Now that Quilt Scene has gone to press, we no longer need it. What are we going to do with all of this wonderful fabric? You guessed it, give it away to our readers!

Leave a comment on this blog and two lucky winners will be selected. Each will receive 1/2-yard pieces of these six fabrics. That's three yards of fabric! Be sure to leave your comment by October 15, 2012, at 9 a.m. EST. I will post the names of the winners later that day.

Good luck!

Kristine

  1. Wow. I would so love this fabric. My bathroom and living room are done in Circles, particular in browns, blues and purples so this would fit perfectly. so…. Pick Me, Pick Me. πŸ˜€

  2. I look at the color combinations and think of a cozy coffee shop in the fall. Deep tones and assorted patterns. Walking through the autumn foliage with a nice hot mug of rich brewed coffee. Wrapped in a quilt made from those prints would be heavenly.

  3. WOW, at first glance I thought it was a landscape layout. I had to take a closer look after putting on my glasses but thought it was buildings in a landscape setting. Whoever set that fabric up for the photo shoot did a great job! It would be great to see those fabrics done as a cityscape.

  4. Circles! love circles and bubbles, my next quilt is featuring bubbles and their contents–would love some of this fabric. Thanks for the opportunity to win 3 yards.

  5. My grand daughter (age 10) loves quilts!!!
    So, needless to say, we are learning to quilt together.
    Would love to try these wonderful, brilliant-colored fabrics with her.

  6. The geometry of these fabrics is very striking along with the luscious colors. It would be fun to do a nature-related quilt with these fabrics since nature motifs are generally curved. The straight lines would provide an interesting contrast with the curves of trees, flowers, water, etc.

  7. The geometry of these fabrics is very striking. It would be great to use these fabrics in a nature-themed art quilt. The straight lines juxtaposed to the curves in nature would have a lot of visual and textural interest.

  8. Oh how I love the choices. I wanted to make a lap quilt for my ex-mother-in-law of 96 years of age. She recently went into hospice but then the Lord said “not yet” so she has been moved to a nursing home where she never wanted to go for as long as I can remember. Anyway her favorite color is purple, which I see is one of the colors. As soon as I saw it, I thought of Florence and the lap quilt I could make for her. She is in Green Bay, WI, where winters get might cold. It would be so great for her as along with the purple the other fabrics complimenting it, would add color and brightness to her room.
    Well enough of a comment. Hope whoever wins, will enjoy. Happy Quilting

  9. I LOVE all the circle fabric! Our art quilt group has a challenge in which we must use circles. It would make my life really easy if I won this gorgeous fabric!!

  10. Really love these fabrics! And I have to give QA a HUGE “thumbs up” for the past several issues. Wow! The magazine just keeps getting better and better! I am very impressed with the direction in which is is growing and I will continue to be a subscriber. Congratulations on a truly inspirational quilting magazine!!!

  11. I promised my Husband I would not BUY any more fabric for the rest of the year!!! I believe that does not include winning fabric! Oh Goodness, I can smell the fabric from here!

  12. The geometry of these fabrics is very striking. I can see a very interesting nature-inspired art quilt using these fabrics. The curved lines of trees and plants juxtaposed to the graphic circles and the sharp angles would be a great design.

  13. I’ve been working all day and even dated my work and it didnt dawn on me 10-11-12… Totally cool. Been looking for the magazine in stores (hate shipping & handling) Th fabric is beautiful! I’m headed to the Pacific International Quilt Show tomorrow πŸ˜‰

  14. Those are such beautiful fabrics, in such a winsome combination. I’m always amazed at the endless designs that are made into quilt fabrics. At some point, you ‘d think we would just say “Yup, we have now officially designed every kind of fabric design that can be designed”, but that just never happens. Kudos.

  15. I have been so straight in my color and pattern choices..stodgy is probably more the term! I am a very tailored person but lately I have been branching out and trying new colors and patterns. I am shocked how great they actually look once in a finished project! I have bought on sale for 1/2 price some fat quarters…5 in a bundle.. and I didn’t like the colors but think.. just cause I dont like the colors, doesn’t mean someone else won’t like them! So what I do is make the pattern/quilt, get the talent and experience and then give the quilts to charity at my church. I still don’t think I like the colors, but they end up looking great. And knwo what I love looking at? Those stacks of fabrics like in your post….it is like looking at a candy store with the clear jars of jelly beans along the wall all color corrdinate and bright and cheery!

  16. I would like this fabric for a couple of projects. My mother, in Michigan in her 80s, has been teaching me how to quilt when I spend a couple of weeks with her in the summers. I’m a teacher in Texas and in my 60s. I would love to see how she works with me to create a unique quilt using this fun fabric. I’d use the “scraps” to design and make dolls to match.

  17. How generous of you to share these beautiful Brigitte Moda fabrics with your readers. As fall gently turns to winter and the early snow flies, I wouild gladly welcome the opportunity to ‘play’ with these colorful treasures!

  18. I like the circle motifs and great colors. These fabrics would be great in an art quilt and wonderful to make Christmas gifts from, too. Your giveaways always include beautiful fabrics. Thanks!

  19. The collection may be named “Juggling Summer” but I could be very happy juggling these fabrics through the fall and winter — love the geometric shapes and wonderful color palette! Would be fun to see what wonders take shape from this inspiring group of fabrics. Thank you for sharing them!

  20. Irises of your eye, lenses of many hues, some frames and board games, that’s what i find in the swatches……these ideas are just afew………… cause inspiration….

  21. the irises of your eye, and lenses of various hues, one looks like a game board, and and these ideas are just a few…….. to bring inspiration to the artists, in hopes that their perspective just grew,,,,,,,,

  22. I am really enjoying my first day as a member of Quilting Daily. A great magazine I just ordered, informative website…and now a blog giving away beautiful fabrics!

  23. Perfect material, size and luscious patterns, to give to my 7 yr old grandaughter who wants Grandma to show her how she can make lovely things too. Her very own fabric!! Catch them when they are young and it’s a hobby for life!!

  26. Love this collection! So many things to do with circles…quilted totes, circle of life, border or backing for wedding ring quilt, something aquatic….Sure hope I’m picked πŸ˜‰

  27. I love this website and the blogs but mostly the free downloads and fabric giveaways….teaching the techniques to my five daughters and they love the more modern stuff that I download.

  29. I feel the same way about fabric candies. These are great fabrics. i too am in a circle “phase” at the moment, making lots of wool pennies for christmas ornaments. these fabrics would really add some texture and pop.

  30. I love the IGF: Quilt Scene and have purchased all the copies at the shows.
    I love this line of fabric by Brigitte Heitland! How fun it would be to have them! Thanks for sharing your candy!!

  31. Wow, I love the energy that flows in the fabric prints. These are colors that I would love to explore more closely. If I win this it would be amazing to create something totally different from what I usually do. Thanks for giving me the chance to participate.

  32. I quilt, I bead, I paint. Through my hobbbies, my job and other avenues, I have met such diverse groups of friends. Then you introduce one friend to another, or introduce them to something new. Before you know it the “circles of friends” become intertwined. My world is full of love. This circle fabric reminds me of this. Thanks for the inspiration for my friendship quilt!

  34. Really like the fabric selection. would love to incorporate them into a quilt. I am new to quilting and have not develop the stash I need to do a lot of things I am learning about in your magazine. Let me tell you I am learning lots of things.

  35. This is a charming gathering of colors and shapes, that I can imagine working themselves into many pleasing combinations. I especially enjoy the pairing of orange and purple, which normally seems a bit garish.

  36. I love the orange and the black – they would go really well in a project I’m just working out in my head now.

    Shishie – I like your way of thinking! I laughed out loud (;-D)

  37. Juggling Summer is sooo perfect because that always seems the way summer is for me. I mean…How can I do all I want to do in such a short time? Sure is fun and this fabric looks like fun, too.

  38. What is it about circles? I am so attracted to them as design elements and just shapes. I looked through my collection of quilts that I must do and about 3/4 of them contain circular shapes. I am hooked on circles and their predecessor or off-shoot, spirals. I guess they are elemental in our world. I am going to teach the drunkard’s path next month and we will see how many circles result from this. This is truly a great collection of fabric with energy and spirit.

  39. Now that Quilt Scene has gone to press, we no longer need it. What are we going to do with all of this wonderful fabric? I WOULD BE SO BLESSED TO HAVE THEM… I WOULD MAKE A LAP QUILTS AND BLESS SOMEONE AT OUR LOCAL VETS HOSPITAL… Jewels…

  40. Love these fabrics AND the International Quilt Show. I’ve been lucky enough to go to Houston for the show in the past and am headed back there this year too.

  41. So juicy! Nice colour scheme- something to think about even if I don’t win. I’ll definitely be checking this line out next time I get to the big city- cheers!

  42. I have three little granddaughters and they are always in my sewing supplies…they love when I make things for them. I’m enjoying reading all the your emails and wonderful ideas start flowing.

  43. Great fall colors. The colors would go great with my new family room furniture. Moda always has designer fabrics that are spot on and very inspirational. Certainly fabrics that I will be on the hunt for more. Now to just decide quilt, pillow, wall hanging or coffee table runner.
    Thanks Quilting Daily

  44. Love the fabric with squares added in with the circles – I saw what you did there! I know exactly what I would do with this! *raises hand and waves to be picked*

  45. I like the sophisticated contemporary design and colors of this fabric grouping. I can’t wait to make something from the Zen Chic collection!

  46. I look forward to seeing the IQF: Quilt Scene. Even better, a package in the mail with these lovely fabrics. Let them circle around in my brain for a while and see what I come up with. Thanks for sharing.

  47. Moda always does a good job. Here, they did a great job! These are lovely fabrics – trendy yet classic enough that I think they can endure. The color palette is wonderful!

  48. Always enjoy a free give away. A wonderful idea on what to do with the fabrics! Sometimes the hardest part of quilting is picking the fabrics and you have done it for us. A sneak preview of the Rolling Ball Table Runner which used these fabrics would be nice. Good Luck to everyone!

  49. no excuses, I have the free download ‘beginner quilting’ , I have bought the rotary cutter, and now with the chance of fabulous fabric there is no excuse. Let my creativity commence.

  50. I took a hiatus from quilting and took up painting. When I came back (as I always do) there was this explosion of color and pattern in the fabric stores.. So I started weeding out my stash.. These are a great example of the new color combinations that make me drool…. Would love to work with these.. J

  52. The rich reds and greens along with the geometric designs on this line of fabric would be so much fun making a wallhanging to brighten up a wall during the winter has me itching to get my hands on the fabric!! Thank you and moda for yet another great give away!

  53. Oh, yummy – Yes, please.
    I just bought a funky consignment shop shoulder bag, with plans to use it as a pattern. I see some eye catching versions here, maybe with contrasting pockets or a circle pocket or, or… so many possibilities!

  54. These fabrics look wonderful. They are fun!! Would make great fall and winter accessories. I would love to receive these fabrics and have fun playing with them.

  55. my daughter doesn’t like circles! she doesn’t know why they irritate her so much. but when she saw these fabrics she oooohed and aaaahed she just loved the colors. she even asked me if i would make something for her if i win the fabrics! i’ll make a bed runner for her if i do.
    thanks,
    irene

  56. These fabrics are bright and cheerful. They remind me of my childhood. I grew up in the sixties. Looking at them brings back great memories. Definitely would make a good choice for a baby quilt for my new great-niece who is coming soon.!! Thanks for the inspiration you gave me with posting these fabrics!!

  57. My goodness, this is so nice of you to offer to readers! This is lovely fabric and know that it will work well in a quilt design I’m thinking of for a new project (Julie Herman’s Carnaval). Thanks for the chance. alternate email mlwright29(at)hotmail(dot)com

  58. These aren’t the usual fabrics that I would be attracted to and using them would definitely be stretching my creative horizons. I am thinking along the lines of a modern geometric design in a table runner with these autumnal colors.

  59. Wow! What beautiful fabrics. I want to make gifts for a lot of people of my Christmas list this year. Thank you for making these available to whomever wins them!

  60. I love these fabrics, they have appeal to people of all ages. I am a nurse and have thinking about introducing sewing/quilting to my patient to help with their treatment/recovery. These fabrics would be great for such a project.

  61. What lovely fabric! The colors are beautiful and the circles remind me of my younger days wearing pop-art pieces! Thank you for the opportunity to win.

  62. Designing , sewing and quilting with a modern twist using the new fabric designs and colors for traditional quilt patterns and, what I call painting on a blank canvas ie: muslins , to create an original. These fabrics are inspirational. Thanks

  63. Oh these fabrics are yummy. I too especially love the dots. I look at them and see movement. How cool. Thanks for a great give a way.

  64. Love the colors. Rather unique colors to use for Christmas, I see the Christmas balls, the tree stand, the paper chains and the purple passion to pull it all together!

  65. Earlier this year, I featured Brigitte and her Zen Chic business in my weekly Art of Quilting column in The Daily Sentinel newspaper in Grand Junction, Colo. I’m excited to hear her Juggling Summer collection for Moda is available now. She has such a fresh and clean approach to design.

  66. What great fabric! I can so see this in a lap size throw for someone in need. Would be a great donation quilt. I often make lap quilts and donate them to local charities or organizations such as safe house for women and children.
    Quilting Daily IS my source of inspiration, always gets me in the mood to go and create !

  67. I am always making those gifts for loved ones and friends. Sometimes it is just as nice to give them the supplies and let their creative juices flow as well. Just wanted to share that idea with you. Love the Quilt Scene.

  71. What wonderful fabrics! We are just two weeks away from the Houston quilt show, and this just inspires me to dream about all of the wonderful things to see there. Looking forward to seeing the Quilting Arts booth and see what projects are in store.

  72. Oh Love these fabrics… I am buying a house in a sleepy little town so I can be close to my job.. I plan on painting my cute li’l new kitchen a punchy lime green… I’m thinking a couple of these fabrics would make a nice table runner… orange is one of my accent colors! I’ll have way more time to make StuFF.. since I won’t have to drive sooo far!! can’t wait…

  73. What a beautiful collection! It would be hard to decide what to make from them. I would probably spread them out over several projects so more people could enjoy them. Barbara

  74. What a beautiful collection! I would have trouble deciding what project to use them in. I might spread them over several projects so more people could enjoy them. Would love to win such a treasure. Barbara

  75. Looking forward to seeing all of these wonderful fabrics in person with my FIRST trip to the International Quilt Festival in Houston!!!! Would love to have my own samples.

  76. WOW! These are the colors I am using for my new home. Never cared for orange in my entire life, but now that I’m a “senior quilter” it has become one of my favorites – maybe because it adds energy! And my favorite color to pair it with?
