Giveaway & SALE at Contemporary Cloth!

I seem to be on a fabric stashing spree.  I have four (yes, four!) packages on the way to me, the last ordered today at Contemporary Cloth.  How are you supposed to resist $4 a yard fabrics and about 25% off storewide?  I was sensible and purchased some Heath by Alexander Henry and a few other tonal geometrics, but then I had to add a yard of this owl print for good measure.

 
I just love the dark, rich tones on that gray and all the black detailing.  I'm seeing it as a quilt backing or maybe pillowcases for Brandon and I.  Oh, wouldn't that be hilarious!  Well, it's coming home to me anyways.  I think that should be enough shopping now, ahem.

25% off at Contemporary Cloth

But you, have you any packages soon to arrive?  Contemporary Cloth's year end sale runs through January 6th.  All regularly priced fabrics are 20-30% off (the above are 25% off) and clearance fabrics are marked down even more.  I did the digging for you and picked out a set of bright, cheerful fabrics that all run about $4 a yard.  Seriously!


$10 Spring Dream Fat Quarter Set!


Sondra has limited stock of my Spring Dream fat quarter bundle available now for $10.  That's over 2 yards for $10.  Total deal. 

I have two gift certificates to giveaway for Contemporary Cloth!  Two winners will receive $25 store credits to jump start their stashing in the new year.  I'll draw random winners after dinner on New Years eve!  To enter, please share a sewing-related goal for the New Year.  Now, you may  not be a resolution kind of person, which is cool, but you can probably come up with some kind of general goal.  Project-wise, I want to make a winter-time bed quilt for our master bedroom.  I'm very, very thankful to be living with Bottled Rainbows on my bed, but I want to follow through with my promise to Brandon to make a more understated "winter" quilt sometime this year in the darker shades he loves.  Unfortunately, I've been otherwise occupied this winter, so hopefully I'll channel the right concept in time to put it on the bed next fall!

Ok, you're next...

  2. Love the owl fabric! Any chance that would match with Ghastlies?

    I also want to make a BIG quilt for my bed; that's #1, but I have plenty of other projects in mind too.

    Happy New Year!

  3. I really want to make Christmas quilts for all our beds. I figured if I start now then I should be done by December.

  4. In the new year, I want to sew more, make more quilts and bags like I've always wanted to (I'll find the time somehow I guess), and I also want to learn how to make garments for myself. Thank you so much for the giveaway!

  5. My first project for 2012 is to make two matching quilts for our bed -- something that will look good, but give each sleeper control over the covers on his/her side! My more serious (groan...) goal for 2012 is to finish, one by one, all of the started quilts. I have sets of quilt blocks, piles of tops -- and it is time to see some finishes or the workroom will burst!

  6. I want to make a quilt for the couch in my son's room. And one for the couch in our living room. And lots of pillows, for both!

  8. One of my many goals is to finish up some of the quilts I have in progress. I also have a long list of quilts I have fabric for but haven't started yet. But before all that, I need to get my sewing room reorganized. It's a disaster!

  12. My goal for 2012 is to finish quilts for a very lovely friend of ours. She's got four little ones, who she's raising all on her own. I finished the quilt for her youngest one in time for Christmas, and I've got two of the other three started, so my goal for the first quarter of 2012 is to finish the remaining three quilts. :)

    Thank you for the chance to win!

    ReplyDelete
  36. My first goal is to keep chugging away at the postage stamp quilt I started last week. After that I've got tons of projects bookmarked. Time and fabric always seem to be in short supply.

  41. I'm working really hard on FINISHING quilty projects. I start one project, have a million ideas while I'm working on it and usually lose steam and start something new before I'm finished. I finished 2 WIPs-twin-size quilts for Christmas so I'm in the grove. Thanks for the chance.

  43. What a wonderful way to celebrate the New Year!
    After crashing and burning on my good intentions of creating gifts for friends and family, I realized my greatest obstacle is an inadequate stash and .lack of confidence. So I shall be building my stash on a budget, and actually make things for our home and family so I am not learning under pressure. Would be good to model for my kids thoughtful creating as I go, rather than crash sewing at the last minute.
    I also want to make "cool" quilts and pillows for my kids, actually using some of those great online blog ideas, patterns and books I so love to peruse. And the big one, figure out a way to use the gorgeous Civil War fabric I bought 10 years ago to make a "Modern" King Size quilt for my husband and I to enjoy.
    All this is going to take small doses of developing skill and confidence by just jumping in, being willing to fail, and enjoying the process.
    Guess I have been thinking about this!
    Y'all enjoy a delightful New Year's celebration! Blessings of love, joy, peace and prosperity!

  44. I have several quilting related goals for the new year. The first one which I started on for real last night (finally got a new sewing machine as my other was broken!) is making all of the "Man" quilts that I've been stashing (read that hoarding fabric for years for! Since I have so much fabric they will all be reversible. This should make all of the men in my life very happy (especially hubby), since they have been hearing about these great quilts I'm going to make for them for years!

  79. I absolutely made some goals - 12 of them, in fact! I made up a UFO list - 1 item for each month. I will use the list for 2 different "UFO challenges" - one number gets called each month and that is the UFO that is worked on that month. I'm hoping for success, but there is one MAJOR project I'm not too sure about. It's the "Luminous Diamonds" quilt. It's well into process, but TONS of hst's!

    My UFO list was posted on my blog a day or two ago. :)

    ReplyDelete

  108. My goal isn't project or skill driven this year. I'm trying to be realistic. I'm returning to work after having my daughter, and I was promoted so I'm returning to a new role with a big learning curve.

    My goal this year is to spend at least 20 minutes a day on creative time. That might be sitting in front of my sewing machine, or just sketching my project ideas in to my quilt notebook. I found this year that "having" to finish certain projects of needed items wasn't fulfilling me creatively, so next year that changes.

    ReplyDelete
  109. My goal is to put the fabric I bought at Contemporary Cloth earlier today into something other than a closet or other storage place.

    ReplyDelete
  110. Fun! I have 2 quilt tops that I will finish this year!

  111. Thanks for the giveaway! My good friend is getting married this year, so I really want to try to make her a quilt. I'm thinking a Double Wedding Ring quilt... we'll see!

    ReplyDelete
  118. Aside from tackling all of my unfinished projects, my number one sewing goal is to make a pair of curtains for the huge picture window in our family room. That window has looked naked for too long...and I have finally found the perfect fabric for it :) I think I would also like to learn how to free motion quilt. I am a little intimidated by the process...

  126. I just received some Half Moon Modern and noticed some great sales happening at some of my favorite shops, as well! At the moment, I'm sort of all shopped-out, so I need a little break before I order anything more.

  142. My goal is to finish my huge log cabin quilt, it is going to be the winter quilt for our bed. It has been laid out & has been sitting in a stack waiting to have the blocks sewn together & the borders put on for 2 months now. Still dithering about what kind of batting to put in-silk or wool. As our bedroom is in the loft (and is the warmest room in the house) I'm thinking wool might be too warm. Any thoughts?

    ReplyDelete
  143. Oh I really need to add to my stash. One of my goals is to finish a bed sized quilt I started. I've done the piecing but there's appliqué to be done. Thanks for the giveaway.

  151. Hi, I'm Cheryl and my goal is to make a quilt each for my three godchildren, I've started cutting out and planned who is getting what. I should say that Hal is 18 and Ros and Fin are 16 so the idea is for this to be a quilt that they can take to college and be wrapped in a godmother's love whatever they get up to.

  164. My goals in 2012 are to make a contemporary "optic circle" quilt (don't ask me how yet - it may end up being a bit improvisational)and to try a reverse applique project. Oh, and to make a huge dent in my stack of scraps. And I probably should try to update my stash with some contemporary fabrics! (hint hint!)

    Happy New Year to you all!

  170. Just found your blog. Love it! I followed your advice and went shopping at Contemporary Cloth.. Great deals..

    ReplyDelete
  171. In 2012, I want to actually start sewing things instead of just thinking about it. I'm really bad about making plans and not following through, so this year I want to just jump right in and not worry about messing up.

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  173. I would love to finish up on my black and white quilt for our master bedroom, that I started with a while ago. It is taking forever to hand quilt it! Hopefully it will be done in 2012! I would love to learn to machine quilt too, so that next quilts won't take this long ;-)

    ReplyDelete
  174. I've got a couple of goals this year ~ one is to finish the quilts I started last year and the other is to organize my sewing space. The space is really small and I tend to be very unorganized in it. Want to straighten up after each project ~ if I could do that ~ it would be amazing!

    ReplyDelete
  175. Hubby gave me the Farmer's Wife book for Christmas, so my goal is to start putting together some of those cute little blocks and have a finished quilt by year's end!

  177. I have two quilts I want to finish this year. One needs to be finished in the next month or so - it's a baby quilt for my children's godmother who is expecting her first baby in March. The other quilt is a postage stamp quilt that I started a month or so ago. That one will take me a lot longer, but I'm hoping to finish it in 2012. Thanks for the chance to win!

    ReplyDelete
  178. just found you - and I'm excited to noodle around on your blog. My goal for the year is to finish up all my WIPs and to work more on things for our home rather than sewing so much for everyone else in the world.

    Happy New Year!

    ReplyDelete
  179. I just need to get some finished. A single girl quilt, half quilted, and a hexagon quilt 80% pieced. Can't wait for some quiet winter days to work on them.

  181. I almost reached my goal of quilting all the tops I had completed where I knew who the recipient was going to be. I have two more days to get three more quilts done so I think I might fall a teeny bit short. Next year my goal is to make all the quilts I have fabric and patterns for so I use up some of my stash. That is going to be a big goal as I have accumulated quite a few fat quarters this past year.

    ReplyDelete
  182. My goal is to get better at garment sewing, specifically when it comes to figuring out how to make clothing that actually fits me well. Thanks for the giveaway!

    ReplyDelete

  187. I have a quilt in progress for my daughter that I really would like to get finished. It would feel good to get it off my sewing desk! Thanks for the fun!

    ReplyDelete
  188. My goal is to start a quilt big enough for my bed. I've only made lap quilts and throws so far... Except that means probably having to buy a brand new *electric* sewing machine first!

    ReplyDelete
  189. I have several projects lined up for next year, beginning with those that weren't done this year. A McKenna quilt for my best friend, a bottled rainbows quilt (i have the solids, just collecting the scraps) but most importantaly, I will be making t-shirt quilts (for the first time) from my recently deceased husbands shirts for myself and my three daughters. Hope to have all done by Christmas next year.

  190. I have to finish a garment project for a friend ... It's quite a big project and I hope to make some big progress in January, because after that, I'm FREE, to make what I want!!! I'm thinking about making a Swoon quilt, I love all the versions I've seen on the web.

    ReplyDelete
  191. I have so many quilty resolutions! My main one is to finish 4 charity quilts. I have plenty of fabric so now I just have to start stitching. I do hope to make even more, but I'm going to be conservative and say 4 for now. Thanks for the chance...I'm trying to resist the $4 fabrics!

  193. I actually have a few goals. Finish a few belated birthday presents. Make new potholders for my own kitchen and my little boys need some wonderful color for their beds. I think they need matching but opposite colored quilts. So many possibilities. Oh and my hubby started a new bike repair shop that is in need of my cloth touch. Thanks for the opportunity.
