Fat Quarter Tuesday Giveaway – Lizzy House Outfoxed + Creative Thursday Meet the Gang

on Nov 2, 2011 in Weekly Giveaway | 308 comments

I’m back from Quilt Market and feeling refreshed and a wee bit harried as I catch up. Going away is a good time to decompress from the routine of job and life so I’m determined to be focused, less stressed, and joyful as I go about my daily routine. I’m working on my trend report and look forward to sharing that within the week!

Outfoxed by Lizzy House arrived just before I left for market. Here’s a picture of Lizzy’s latest quilt pattern made up in her new collection of fabrics. (the pattern will be available in the shop soon)

Going to quilt market as a designer means working your brand. Lizzy does it in style in this amazing dress from her Hedgehogs Green print.

This was one of 5 photos I took with my iPhone. I had such great intentions to click and post on our Facebook page through the weekend. Reality had different plans. I discovered juggling a regular camera and a phone camera was a bit obnoxious. Something like “wait, I’ve just taken a picture of you with my phone, stay still for another minute or two while I get my OTHER camera out and click a few more”. It was a fun idea in theory but difficult in execution. Hmmm… that’s true for about 9 out of 10 of the great ideas I have every day – good thing I don’t let failure slow me down!

When viewing new collections at quilt market they come in one of two forms: paper or fabric. When shown super early the prints are on paper. As it gets closer to the release date previews are shown on fabric. Above is what I was shown at Spring Quilt Market for Outfoxed.

A second new collection just arrived from Andover is Meet the Gang by Creative Thursday aka designer Marisa Haedike.

Here’s what it looked like on paper at Spring Quilt Market:

Today’s giveaway is for FQ sets from each collection. Two winners will choose their preferred colorway.
