Blogger Bundle with Needle & Foot Fine Fabrics and Giveaway

I was thrilled when Bernie of Needle & Foot asked me to curate a bundle for her Etsy shop, Needle & Foot Fine Fabrics.  And, Bernie has generously allowed me to give away a bundle to one of you too!



I had so much fun curating a bundle.  This was a first for me, so I may have shopped 'til I dropped, so to speak, picking out just the right fabrics to represent summertime.

You can find the June Blogger Bundle here in the Needle & Foot Etsy shop. And, the five-piece fat quarter bundle is 20% off through Friday.



June Blogger Bundle by Paige from Quilted Blooms

I picked out the following five prints, all Windham Fabrics, to include the June blogger bundle which are pictured above from top to bottom:
  • Dots in Yellow from Paint the Town by Striped Bear Studio (printed on GOTS certified cotton)
  • Dash in Pink from Dreamer by Carrie Bloomston 
  • Raindrops from Paint the Town by Striped Bear Studio (printed on GOTS certified cotton)
  • Grid Paper in Green from Wordplay by Sarah Fielke 
  • Frolic from Meriwether by Amy Gibson

I have started a baby quilt with a garden theme using all five prints on a white background.  The Dots in Yellow made the perfect sun and flower center.

I used a zigzag stitch, not quite a satin stitch, to applique the pieces in place. I cut out a quarter circle for the sun and some triangles for rays of sunshine.  Aurifil (50 wt.) 1135, Pale Yellow, matched perfectly.



A big daisy will be added using petals from Dash in pink.  I cut the petals using the Go! Orange Peel die.



The tulip was also designed using the orange peel die.  I cut the green flower stem on the bias for interest and, again, used the orange peel die to cut out the leaf. 


It can't always be sunshine and pretty flowers, sometimes there are rain clouds too.



I picked out all Windham Fabrics listed in either the Windham section or Organic section but also check out the following sections:




Would you like to win a five-piece fat quarter bundle of my curated Needle and Foot fabrics? Many thanks to Bernie for offering one of the bundles to a lucky winner! The giveaway is open through Sunday, June 23rd at 8 pm EST (US winners only due to shipping costs).

  15. Such lovely and lively colors. I am sure that any pattern will look gorgeous with these fabrics. Rain gets a bad rap, but we need the rain to cool things down, to wash away the grime and help starting things afresh.

  17. These are some fun and bright fabrics! I loved the cursive quilt. I'm a retired school teacher, and I hated the way they threw cursive out of the curriculum and told us to teach it if we had time!
