Bundle of Joy Giveaway

Hello lovelies!

Today I have a special treat for all of you! I'm going to give you a chance to win a colorful bundle of my fabrics, or what I like to call your very own 'bundle of joy.'


As most of you know, I'm inspired by all the beauty that surrounds me. All those pretty little everyday things are what stimulate me to design. From gorgeous magazine clippings to flowers blooming in my garden, these simple beauties are what have sparked my fabric collections.

Once I'm done designing, I can't wait until the final production comes in and I have all my fabrics in hand to start making all sorts of goodies, from dresses and shirts, to handbags and quilts!

This is the part that amazes me the most. My very own fabrics, that were created from all the beautiful inspiration surrounding me, have now become their own form of inspiration for you to create!

Whenever I see a bundle of fabrics with a fascinating color story, my imagination starts working, thinking of quilts, table runners, clothing... just about anything! I just love the fact that inspiration is in the form of anything and everything. It just brings me great joy!

When it came time to selecting a set of colors that would become part of my new line of threads for Aurifil, I found myself staring at this one bundle that just seemed SO right! The colors were the right mix of deep and rich, with bright and intense. I instantly started to select the colors for the box set that I would later name 'Bold Beauty.'


My sweet dears, this is the bundle that inspired the 'Bold Beauty' box set for Aurifil! Not only do I have a 12 spool set of this gorgeous array of colors, but now I have a new mini spool collection.


 This bundle inspired me to select my thread colors. What does this bundle inspire you to make?


To enter the giveaway, leave a comment below with your answer to, "what does this bundle inspire you to make?" Two lucky winners will win this fat quarter bundle of joy!

For a second chance to win you can enter on my FaceBook page.

Contest ends Friday, the 13th, and winners will be announced Monday, the 16th.

Good luck!

We are both Firefighter/paramedic and we are struggling. I wanted to get your fabric to redo my 2 wingback chairs so at least when we come home we have something bright and cheerful in our house. These patterns will brighten up our days whether it be us coming home from a bad shift at the fire department or when we are stressed out beyond our control over how we will survive day to day. I'm all about positive energy's and right now I need about 15 yards or bright and cheerful happiness in our home.

A quilt from this bundle would look just beautiful in their house. Thank you for inspiring me!
