Winner, Thanksgiving & Dr. Seuss!

My goodness - lots of plummy purple lovers out there!  I so agree. It's nice to see purple come in to it's own lately. Well, I wish you all could win Khristian A. Howell's High Society but....

High Society Fat Quarter Giveaway!

the winner of this pretty fabric stack is Heather Nevits, entry 39. I've emailed you, Heather!

For the rest of us purple-hungry people, Sew Fresh Fabrics will be stocked in High Society sometime this coming week. They're offering free shipping on $35+ orders through the end of December, so keep that in mind too.

I am back at the sewing machine today after a 3 day break.  Really, 3 days with no sewing!  How did I manage that?  Well, we had some dear childhood friends and their three beautiful children come stay with us for Thanksgiving.  The days were filled with happy children and the nights with Settlers of Catan (a fairly addictive board game).

Then yesterday I couldn't help but scour fabric stores online for Black Friday deals.  I bought some Shot Cotton for a shower curtain I'm planning and restocked my stash of Garden Party by Anna Maria Horner.  I'm still working on an order of Dr. Seuss fabrics for Liam's bed quilt.  Although we totally avoid characters in our home, I'm thinking that Cat in the Hat may be a worthy exception.  Do you like the Seuss collection? I really appreciate the basic stripes and dots shown above.

Maybe a log cabin style quilt with large centers to showcase the picture prints?  Liam has funky furniture from Ikea (the malmut line) that always has reminded me of Dr. Seuss.  Add that to sweet memories of my Daddy reading Dr. Seuss and I guess this fabric line had me from the get go.  I was planning on a values quilt for Liam's bed, but this seams much more fun for him, you know?  Of course, he loves it!  Let me know if you have any suggestions for quilt designs. 


  1. I also am in love the the Dr Suess line and would love to make it into a quilt for Travis. We are not fans of characters either, but this is different.
    I can't wait to see what you come up with! Maybe another quilt-a-long?

  2. Man...I would have traded you a sheep and three wheats if I could have won that fabric. Oh well.


  3. I used Crazy Quilt Mom's Fair & Square pattern for my Dr. Seuss quilt - you can see pics here:

    I like this pattern because it allowed me to showcase the prints AND it was fast!! I had trouble downloading her pattern, but it was very easy to figure out - 6.5" blocks, 6.5" x 3.5" sashing in between the blocks, and 3.5" wide sashing between the rows. I changed the size of hers a little, too - mine is basically 5 rows by 5 rows.

  4. can you tell me where you got shot cotton on sale?

  5. Unfortunately, the shot cotton was regular price, but it's available at Pink Chalk Fabrics, who is doing a promotion on larger orders.

    Jenn - hahahahah! I love to trade, but the other night I had SO much wheat and sheep that I was using a 2 for 1 port.

  6. I love the Seuss fabric! My little one loves Go Dog Go. It'd be great to find fabric of it too!
