A quilt along, some fabric, and a FQ bundle giveaway!

So it's been awhile! Like they say the best laid plans of mice and men.....
Life has been hectic around here. I've had my in-laws up for a nice long visit along with my 3 year old nephew.
I've been sewing like mad, but not much I can show for it.

One thing I am doing when I have down time, waiting for Little Bit, or sitting with Shane, is working on hexies!
I've decided to start the quilt along, MFHexie, that Katy from Im A Ginger Monkey and FatQuarterly are hosting. FatQuarterly has info on how to make hexies, basting etc and links to places you can buy papers and some discount codes going one. This is the image of what the finished quilt will look like.
I'm using mostly Bari J's Lilly Belle, with some Paris Apartment thrown in. I just love the colours in this one, the grey and teal are just the perfect shades and Bari has such a talent with making the fabrics seem like they have all sorts of texture and dimension.

I've been using my AccuQuilt and Sizzix Big Shot to cut my own hexie papers and fabric. It has actually been working out really well. Sizzix and AccuQuilt measure their hexagons across rather then the sides so what they call 2" hexies are what most would call 1". AccuQuilt's  3 in 1 die (which is on sale) has a 1" as the smallest hexagon so I've been using it for the papers and the Sizzix for the fabrics. I actually just checked the sites and Sizzix is now measuring theirs across the side like is proper.
So I cut papers from AccuQuilt and fabric from Sizzix, and since the Sizzix dies go through the AccuQuilt baby I don't even have to switch machines. This is one of the times where I see the difference between having lots of sizes, like with the AccuQuilt, and multiple of the same, like the Sizzix, are both useful. I'm not sure which I like better because there are pros and cons to both. Price wise though the Sizzix is cheaper by a fair amount.




You know what else would make this an awesome quilt? My Blogger Bundle from Fat Quarter Shop. Just sayin'....

Or maybe I'm hinting....or maybe I'm giving one away! Yes that is it! Fat Quarter Shop and I are giving away a blogger bundle! I knew there was something!!! Just leave a comment below letting me know what you would do with it! That's it! Nothing crazy. You can read about the bundle on Fat Quarter Shop's blog, where they're giving away one too! But it closes June 27th so you have to hurry for it. Mine closes July 1st

Oh! And don't forget about Talkin Tuesday tonight over on twitter! It is going to be as always!

Check back tomorrow when I have another surprise to giveaway! I'm back with a bang! lol

ADDED Fat Quarter Shop will giveaway TWO of the bundles if we reach 200 entries! So share with your friends!!

Katie Fleming said...

I definitely would make a bag that has been on my list for a while to make!

Thanks for the giveaway!

B Greene said...

Cara - I didn't know you could use Sizzix dies in the AccuQuilt cutter!! Thanks for the tip. I bought some hexagon papers last week and I might give hexagons a try. If successful - your bundle would create some beautiful flowers. Thanks for the chance to win!

Trish said...

I would probably stare at it lovingly for a long while.... and then eventually make a baby quilt with it:)

Lisa Marie said...

I have and 8 year old niece who loves all the colors in your bundle. So I would make a quilt for her. Or maybe, if she's interested, I could teach her to sew with these fabrics. Thanks for the chance to win!

Shelly said...

I love hexies. Your Lily Belle will be gorgeous. I didn't realize you had a FQ Bundle -- it's beautiful! I'd love to win it and make a fun quilt from it. Thank for the chance.

quilterliz said...

If I won the fabric, I would make a quilt for my friend who really likes those bright colors! Thanks for a chance at winning some new fabric!

Brenda said...

thanks for the give away! Love your fabric bundle. It looks fun and flirty. Maybe it would be perfect for the hexie quilt or a Swoon quilt. Both are on my list to make.

Mishka said...

Love the fabrics you chose Cara. I'd make something for my kitchen. Just added an old table in there that I refinished a few years ago and it needs a table runner.

Anna said...

Lots of things that bundle could be used for.

Michelle said...

Love that bundle and I can envision myself making lots of cute pincushions! :)

Nancy said...

Covers for my Keurig brewer and my sisters!

Christi said...

You must have been reading my mind! I fell asleep last night thinking about hexagons since I have newly discovered English paper piecing. My daughter is playing volleyball all summer, and I love having some handwork I can throw in a bag to have something to do while she practices, so these fabrics would be an awesome summer hexagon project.

Cody said...

I love that bundle! I could use it for making Mon-stors, my signature creations!

Betty said...

I think those fabrics would be great to make a quilt with simple geometric shapes, set together with fresh solid white.

Teresa F. said...

Wonderful fabric. As you say it would be great for making an hexie quilt. It would look fantastic.

Eli said...

I've been wanting to quilt-a-long with Katy but just can't justify buying more fabric before I use some more of my stash. So, I would definitely make a few Hexies with this bundle.
Thank you!

Reader Owl said...

You sure put together a beautiful bundle. I had to go to the Fat Quarter site to get a closer look. A quilt for sure.

Sara H said...

Pretty colors! I noticed FQS' Twirly Bird kit on FB today, using the Ballerina pattern - these fabrics would look great with that pattern, a la Twirly Bird!

Susan said...

I love that bundle! I just got a Sizzix machine for mother's day, specifically for doing hexies, circles and stars. I'm really enjoying it! I'd probably use the fabric bundle for a really fun bed-size quilt!
Thanks for the chance to win!

Barb Robson said...

I would use it in a challenge ..I have 2 that are due in September.

Mary said...

If I could bring myself to actually cut these fabrics I would make a baby quilt with it. It would be so freakin' cute.

Kay said...

First of all...thanks for the opportunity to win this fabric bundle. The colors are gorgeous!

I would use this fabric for a quilt for one of my daughters. I would love to make each a quilt, and this would be fantastic.

I don't have one of the new fancy cutting machines that are so popular right now...I cut my pieces with rotary cutter and rulers.

Have a wonderful day, and thanks again.

Katie Favara said...

Any excuse I can find to start a new quilt, I will use! I would wait for a QAL that looks fun and get started!

Melanie @ bear rabbit bear said...

I would love to use it on a new quilting project! bearrabbitbear at hotmail dot com

Tracey @ The Peony Teacup said...

Oh it's so nice to hear someone comparing the Accuquilt and the Sizzix hexies.. I have an Accuquilt GO and I was recently looking at the Sizzix dies at a quilt fair, but I was under the impression that the Sizzix dies weren't able to be used in the Accuquilt cutters.

I really liked the way the sizzix hexie dies were done in multiples of the same size instead of multiple sizes, but I didn't really want to have to buy a whole new "cutting system"!

Meanwhile, if I won your gorgeous blogger bundle I think I'd use it when I redecorate my daughter's room.. cushions, bunting, mini quilt wall hanging..

BillieBee (billiemick) said...

What bright fun fabrics! Looks like something made for summer would be great in these fabrics.

Barb said...

Your bundle looks like a splash of summer flowers. So...a picnic quilt would be fun to make.

Svanhild said...

You said that the sizzix dies fit the accuquilt baby??? Is this true for all sizzix dies???
I have the Go,, but have seen some very nice sizzix dies,, but wondered if they'd fit..
Lovely bundle by the way, for summer stuff.

Sophisticat Studio said...

Love, love your colourful bundle! I'd add solid white to it and make a bright summertime quilt, with funky flowers created using the Accuquilt dies!

Vicky said...

Sew many things to do with that beautiful fabric! I think my first project would be a quilt for my little granddaughter who is going to be born sometime around July 9th!

Beulah said...

Love the colors of your blogger bundle!
They are shouting SUMMER!!!!
I would make a light wieght throw quilt to be used on the back porch on cool summer nights while star gazing.

Kristen said...

Those always remind me of rainbow sherbet I used to have at my grandparents house in the summer. I am thinking a simple summer quilt of railfence blocks in threes just like the icecream. :)

hueisei said...

I'd love to make a quilt for my mum ;)

Donna F said...

I cannot tell you how in love I am with these fabrics. Yea, I'm one of them...fabriholic. I know the first thing I would do with them is sit and look and admire them through touch. Honestly I'm not sure I would have the courage to cut them.

Carrie P. said...

love those fabrics and what a neat quilt along.

Pippa Parsons said...

im going to do the hexy quilt too so I could use it for that...am waiting for the sizzix hexagons, we cant get them here until end July :(

Colleen said...

Those are gorgeous bright colours. I would want to make a kids quilt with them.

Marcia W. said...

If I'm so fortunate as to win your lovely bundle, I'll be torn between making hexies for my GMFG quilt And that FatQuarterlyMF quilt! I would love to have that dilemma of choice.

Sarah said...

Ahhhhhhhh! I honestly can't decide what I would use it for! A summery quilt? A cute girls skirt? Table runner?

I'd just have to muse on it for awhile. :)

Jodi - usairdoll said...

Your FQ Bundle is so eye popping gorgeous!! I'd love to make a quilt, a tablerunner or maybe a summer bag. But first I'd have to hold the bundle close, cuddle for abit and see what it told me it would like to be. hehe.

Thanks for a super generous giveaway and a chance to win a gorgeous FQ Bundle.

Kasey said...

Let's be honest: I'd put in top of my current projects, pet it, love it, stare at it any time I needed to be cheered up, and then finally, probably 3 months later when it will be getting cold here, I would cut into it and make a super cheery quilt to get me through winter. Maybe use AMH's prism pattern that I've been seeing everywhere.

Jennifer Rodriguez said...

I think I would have to make a yummy summer skirt - love it!!

Cathy Weber said...

My daughter is a fairly new quilter and these are just her colors so I would gift them to her. I'm fairly sure that she would make a quilt with them in some type of hexagon shapes. Thanks for allowing us to enter this giveaway.

jomaj said...

I'm working on hexies also, it's too hot to sew upstairs in my house. The portable AC in the family room is my salvation!
LOVE your bundle, the colors are so bright and gorgeous. I want to make tote bags for my sisters and they would both love those colors.
Thanks! Joan

Kit Lang said...

Would love a chance to win! :)

memmens said...

What would I do with it? After stroking, gazing, drooling and stashing forever because I'm rubbish at cutting into stuff (actually ignore that last bit otherwise you won't let me win!) I would use it to make bags and purses for me and my girls (when my 5yr old stops wanting to be a boy that is!)
thanks for a great giveaway

Belinda said...

Quilts!!!! That's what I would use the bundle for :)

Tamara said...

I did not know that about the dies interchangeability. Great tip--and I have been working on Quilts for Kids...

marciekoch said...

I love that fabric! I'd make a fun summery quilt!

cathy said...

I love the bright colour scheme. I usually use a more muted pallette, but this would be fun to play with - I have a 2 year old granddaughter without a quilt.

GreyCatQuilts said...

oooh gorgeous fabric combination....makes me think of a citrus theme, all that lime and tangerine and, well, pink grapefruit. I would make a wall quilt on this theme...perhaps snag a few of the FQs and hem for napkins for the porch...and use all else in my quilted postcards. Thanks so much for the giveaway - and, hey, Happy Canada Day!

hlberg said...

I love that fabric. It would make a wonderful bany quilt :)

That's a lovely bundle: I've been eyeing it on FatQuarterShop for a couple of days now. I have friends with a little girl who would love the colors: either as a small, summery quilt or as a couple of sweet little dresses. :)

Sarah said...

Those are gorgeous fabrics you've chosen. I would make a chevron quilt, maybe using one of the solids as a background, or possibly using a stark white background and incorporating the coloured solids into the chevrons themselves.

Ooh. I'm out of town, but it would be so great to be greated by new fabric upon my return. Your bundle is so deliciously summery!
