Modern Patchwork Fabric Giveaway

18 Apr 2013

Oh my! We got so busy with our publications and videos we almost forgot about the giveaway. Here are the winners: jane.grau and AnnC@24.

Congratulations! Contact us and we will send you your fabric.

* * *

One of the most fun aspects of working on Modern Patchwork magazine is poring over all the contemporary fabric collections we review. Collections are released throughout the year, but spring is an especially inspiring time to shop for new fabrics.

shelburne falls fabric by denyse schmidt
"Shelburne Falls" designed by
Denyse Schmidt for Free Spirit
This spring, we noticed a preponderance of orange-and-blue combinations. In prints, the 1950s-'60s kitchen has inspired many fabric designers, with starburst clocks, angular coffee makers, and abstract shapes reminscent of hand stamping used as motifs.

Chickens are still popular, but llamas have also come on the scene. Typography, numerals, and graphic elements with letters and numbers on them (like tickets and labels) make prints interesting to look at.

Most of these fabrics could stand on their own as frame-able art. But they are meant to be cut and stitched into modern quilts and patchwork projects like the ones in the pages of Modern Patchwork Spring 2013.

monaluna fabric for modern patchwork
"Modern Home" from Monaluna
To get you started, we're giving away two packages of fabric we reviewed in Modern Patchwork: A roll of "Shelburne Falls" designed by Denyse Schmidt for Free Spirit and a stack of "Modern Home" from Monaluna.

Just leave a comment saying what you might do with these fabrics and we'll randomly choose two winners on Monday, April 22, 2013.

Also, be sure to submit your original project ideas for Modern Patchwork Winter 2013. The deadline is May 13! Get all the details on our Submissions page.

O.M.G! Since my daughters are llama freaks (started when my now 26 year old first attended leadership camp in 6th grade and nicknamed their dorm the llama dorm, the name stuck, and her sisters followed suit) they will LOVE receiving gifts made with the llama fabric - quilts, purses, pillow cases... I'm SURE they will have many requests!! I can't wait to find that fabric in my local store or online

I would love to have these fabrics.  I will be teaching young girls from our church to sew this summer..  They are so excited and I would love to have them using "new" fabrics.  These girls are only 6-12 years old and work on mission projects every month.  I will be teaching them things to keep for themselves and things they can make for the annual bazaar which funds many of their projects.  I am so pleased they have the desire to learn to sew...they are a GREAT bunch of young girls!

This set would be perfect--would love to have it as an extra special something for my first grand baby.

I'm making quilts to give away right now. My first thought is a wonky start quilt from either set of fabric. Probably the next two 'give away' quilts I make will go to West, Texas for relief efforts. I grew up in Waco and played many wonderful and festive weekends away in West. I'm sad for the community and too far away to do anything other than send quilts, my answer for all pain in the world.

Different things with the two styles - Shelburne Falls I'd use with some tone on tones - I think some action with half square triangles or flying geese. I love the prints in Modern Home - a simple Square in a Square would show off the llamas!

If I were to have the Modern Home with the llamas, I would make my quilt for my Mom.  She used to travel to Peru to teach English to a women's collective called Project Mujer which taught women to bargain for better prices and to make Alpaca sweaters, hat, mittens and other hand made goods in larger sizes for the American market.  I love these modern quilt fabrics.

I will be introducing quilting to inner city elementary school children is June and July.  What a wonderful opportunity to inspire and motivate creative young mines, sharing beautiful fabrics thank you so much. Although I am very much an amateur quilter  I enjoyed the excitement of the children as they learn to create things with your own hands. They will also learn how to re-purpose garments that are no longer warn

Good luck everyone!

My brilliant 5yo niece and nephew love all kinds of art. I've been conducting a special weekly "creativity time" with them for about three years now and they absolutely love it! Sometimes I’ll introduce them to new materials or techniques and prompt them with special projects (for birthday gifts, holiday decorations, etc.) and sometimes they’ll make whatever kind of art they want given the materials we have on hand. They have shown an interest in sewing with a real sewing machine and would definitely put a fabric stash like this to good use!

These "Shelburne Falls" and "Modern Home" fabrics would be a great foundation to liven up my dull blue and brown-toned bedroom. Orange would be the perfect modern touch to put a spark back into the blue-carpeted space. I'm thinking of a fabulous quilted duvet cover for those cold northern winters, with the windows and walls livened up with accent colors taken from the quilt.

Please enter me in the draw for these fabulous fabrics.

Since it has been a while since I did any serious quilting or sewing projects due to family issues it would be a much appreciated fresh look and attitude. After looking at your stash for a long time it's hard to get inspired so I've been donating older parts of my collection to other sewers.

What great fabrics!!!  I would make a throw quilt to give to one of the students that are participating in the FFA program at our local High School just down the road from us.  They have a beautiful Llama guarding the sheep that are being raised by the kids that patrols the fields they are in I pass whenever I venture into town.

Wonderful...
