Favorite Things Friday: Fabric Giveaway from Fat Quarter Shop & Milk, Sugar & Flower Fabric Collection

Win $50 to Fat Quarter Shop with Sew Creative's Favorite Things Friday

Hi, my name is Crystal Allen and I am a fabric addict. I first became addicted to fabric when I opened my Etsy shop, Lilikoi Lane. During that time I had a cover for my addiction… mom’s were wanting to cloth their children in shirts made with adorable fabrics, I had to cater to my customers… right?

During that time I amassed well over 100 different prints of fabric. Some might have called it an obsession, I called it curating a lovely collection of textiles. My collection was comprised of mostly yardage of individual prints. Rarely did I get more than one fabric from a collection. This is fine when making appliquéd t-shirts, less ok if you want to make other lovely things with your fabric.

Some of my fabric organized into mini bolts

Since closing my Etsy store, I lost my cover… but let me tell you, my eye still wanders. I still browse through gorgeous fabric collections online, marvelling at the beautiful designs, longing to touch and feel the texture of the fabric, sighing over all of the loveliness, recalling the smell of unwashed quilting cotton.

My favorite place to browse through fabric eye candy and purchase fabric to feed my addiction is at Fat Quarter Shop. I love looking at jelly rolls, fat quarter bundles, layer cakes and charm packs (for those unversed in quilting terms, these are all bundles of fabric that are cut from a collection of fabric in a specific size. For example, a charm pack of the Milk, Sugar and Flower collection would have 1- 5X5 square of each print in the line.) I love that at the Fat Quarter Shop it’s easy to buy collections of fabric to coordinate with each other without having to buy yardage of each.

Here are a few of my favorite collections being sold at Fat Quarter Shop right now:

Milk Sugar & Flour Fat Quarter Bundle by Elea Lutz from The Fat Quarter Shop

Milk, Sugar & Flower Collection by Elea Lutz– the vintage feel, the adorable little animals, the dainty flowers… I adore this collection. 

New Passport by Moda Fat Quarter Shop

New Passport Collection by Moda– This fabric line makes me want to travel by train across the country! Old fashioned but adventure seeking all in one. 

To Sunset Maker by Art Gallery Fabric Studio from Fat Quarter Shop

To Sunset Maker Collection by Art Gallery Fabric Studios– Are you starting to get the idea that I love vintage styled fabric yet? This fabric collection makes me want to spend days in my sewing studio and create, create, create!

Airmail collection by Eric & Julie Comstock Fat quarter shop

Airmail Collection by Eric and Julie Comstock– This collection feels so Etsy to me! I love the color palette and all the hearts. It’s like falling in love all over again.

Baby Flannel Collection from Michael Miller from Fat Quarter Shop

Baby Flannel Collection from Michael Miller–  I have to admit, this collection makes my ovaries ache a little bit. I can imagine sewing a rag quilt out of it and wrapping an itty, bitty baby in it’s cozy loveliness. The little purple whales have stolen my heart. 

Guess what? Fat Quarter Shop surprised me the other day with a lovely package of Milk, Sugar and Flowers fat quarters! It gets even better…

They want to give one lucky reader a $50 Gift Certificate to Fat Quarter Shop!!! Want to win? Visit the site and pick out what fabric you would pick if you won the $50 Gift Certificate!

    I would buy Milk, Sugar and Flower fat quarters. The two reasons for this is I love the colors of the fabric and my other passion are baking and flowers.
