I know you want some

THIS CONTEST IT NOW CLOSED!

International Quilt Market is THIS WEEK!

Things around here are nothing less than hectic.

As I was putting the finishing touches on one of the many projects for my booth I had a thought....

When was the last time I had a giveaway? And what better time for a giveaway than now?

So....are you dying to get your grubby little hands on some 'Going Coastal'?

I have a fat quarter bundle (tied with rope!) of every print in the line. And because a fat quarter was just not enough, I put a 1/2 yard each of the Bottle Cap print and the Patchwork Plaid print.

All you have to do is leave me a comment telling me WHY you LOVE this line!? (sorry, I just can't hear enough of it right now!)

I'll pick a winner next monday....after Market.

Good luck to you!

I'm going coastal (to Ireland!!) soon so a picnic blanket made from this line would be fantastic!!

linda said...

i love the colours and i am sure that it will make something wonderful.

Bobbi said...

Who doesn't love the water?! Being at the beach, on a boat on a lake, relaxing to the sound of waves?

THAT's why I love this line! I can't wait to see it in person. And crazy... but a friend of a friend designed it? WOO-HOO! That's super cool.

Yumm yumz by patticakes said...

My inner California Girl loves anything with a nautical theme - Missing La Jolla!

Cille said...

For me thats is a easy one to answer. The grey fabrics makes all the difference for me. Costal a really interesting and very unusual mix of colors. Especially when you have two boys :)

Bev said...

My granddaughter loves sea shells and crabs and water. This would make a wonderful quilt for her.

LynCC said...

I like it because it's not th same as everything else out there, and because my house is coastal!! :D

Tiffany said...

This is such an awesome giveaway!!

I actually really do LOVE LOVE LOVE this line because I live on the Eastcoast and it has such a wonderful beachy/coastal feel to it and the color scheme is fantastic! My absoluate favorite part I must confess are the little crabs :)

Michele said...

I love the water. The colors in this collection remind me of days on the lake.

megvarg said...

I grew up in Cali and miss the beach and all things coastal. Coming out of a very cold and snowy winter and spring in Utah, this fabric would cheer me right up!

Four dogs and one quilter said...

Love the crab, the plaid, the colors. My husband grew up near the Chesapeake Bay, would love to make a Coastal quilt for him. Have fun at Market.

Vroomans' Quilts said...

This is such a refreshing line - not anything I have seen before - new, frisp, delightful. In Reminds me of the Northeast Coast - Crabbing, sailing, colors - so playful.

Rhonda said...

I love how the line is so boy! thanx for the chance!

Deb said...

OMG, this fabric is yummaliscious! I know, it's not a real word.......but it should be. What better way to describe those plaids. I see a Quilt of Valor for a special soldier made from this fabric.

Donna said...

I love Going Coastal because it is pretty and fresh and I can imagine so many wonderful projects made from the fabric. I am also loving your excitement!

Barbara said...

Not only do I live on the east coast, but I live in the seacoast of NH...perfect for making and using a beach blanket out of your coastal fabrics! Fun fabric line!

Laura said...

I love the ocean theme the best. And the bright colors!! I want to make a picnic/beach blanket with this line!

jlk said...

This fabric makes me think about everything good that goes with summer.

Catskill Quilter said...

I love how the colors work together -- and I have never worked with any grey prints, so that is an extra treat!

Melinda said...

I like it because it reminds me of growing up in Southern California - see you in Salt Lake City!

heather b. said...

I love the colors and it reminds me of going to beach...oh how I miss going to the beach.

free indeed said...

Glad to see greys making it into these new lines...they really help to blend the other colors nicely. I'm a blue/green girl and love the calming effect of the coast....with snatches of bright to add just the right amount of interest...

Kristi said...

I just love those colors, oh the blues, the oranges, the reds, yum yum. I am not a fan of florals, so this line fits me just fine!!!

Amy said...

I like the fun summer colors. I especially like the bottle caps and lobsters. Super cute!

Jenny & Scott said...

I love the colors! Jack's room is in need of a make over and this would go great with the new paint!

Sherri said...

Yes...I love this line! My favorite place is the ocean..and I live in the desert of southern Nevada. Also, I haven't been able to get to the beach in three years...so I NEED some "Going Coastal!"

The Wheeler 5 said...

you had me at bottle caps! love those! plus the colors are great! and ever more awesome is that you came up with it all!

Joe and Julianne said...

I love your new fabric line. The colors are perfect and it is perfect for summer. It seems lately a lot of the fabric lines have had the same colors and patterns and yours is fresh an new. THANKS for the giveaway! I am thinking I need a new picnic blanket out of this fabric.

Laurel said...

i live in peoria, il. a lovely town, to be sure, but in the summer time, when i want to be at the beach... i need to fulfill that desire in other ways. i think a fabulous coastal quilt would just about be perfect!

Kelly said...

Such lovely fabric. Makes me think of vacation time spent near the water. Thanks for the chance to win!

Alicia Smith said...

I love it because it reminds me of summer! And after my first winter in Seattle (consisting of rain, more rain and cloudy days) I am ready for summer!

Susan C said...

I love anything with crabs on it and yours are some of the cutest I've seen lately. My mother is a cancer survivor and collects crabs so I'm always on the lookout for different crab fabric to sew up into something special for her. This whole design line is beautiful......great job!

Debi said...

I love this line because I love crabs and I am in love with the grey fabrics...reminds me of the lakeshouse in Maine.

Cory said...

I would love to win this bundle because Going Coastal is so fresh and unique. I haven't seen anything like it. Thank you for offering to share with us. Take care and God bless, Cory

Merry Made Quilts said...

I LOVE this line!! It screams summer and beaches. I'll be going across an ocean to pick up a little boy very soon...seems appropriate!!

Laura said...

I really love the colors in this line! Also I love how great it works for boy quilts. The bottle caps are so awesome.

Donna said...

I would LOVE to win Going Coastal as my parents just purchased a beach house in North Carolina and we need some lap quilts to use when it is naptime. I absolutely love the colors and the items that you used in this collection of fabrics.

Jackie K. said...

It's the bottle tops, the bottle tops the bottle tops. Instantly I'm thinking Eastern shore Maryland with the crab motif.
Jimmy Buffet songs are buzzing through my head with that relaxed summer chillin' pace.

Ahhhh......

Sarah ACP said...

Oh I love the crab and starfish pattern fabrics, so summery. Thanks for the giveaway. -slp.acp@gmail.com

Jennifer said...

I LOVE this line and I cant wait to get my hands on some of it - our summer home needs some accents with this line!
jmistok(at)gmail(dot)com

amber said...

I got 3 of 4 quilts finished for my kids for christmas...and now here it is May and my soon to be 5 year old still hasn't been made a quilt! This line would be perfect for him. Pick me and please Help ease my mom guilt :)
I love the colors and that plaid...Just reminds me of fun in the sand!

Natalie said...

I have a sister getting married in august and her new last name will be Crabb. What a better gift than a beautiful quilt with your adorable crabs on it!! Also, they will be living in California. Double bonus!

Kristen said...

Oh, you know I want some! I grew up with a house at the New Jersey shore, and then spent all of my time in Maryland near the water, but now I live in landlocked southwestern Virginia, where, when we see a boat trailer, wonder, "where the heck are they going to put THAT?" This fabric line makes me homesick for those cool ocean breezes and hot steamed blue crabs drenched in Old Bay. I SWEAR that our beach blanket - which always smelled of salt water and cedar shed, and had at least a bucketfull of sand in it no matter how many times you shook it out - looked just like one of the patchwork plaid prints. I would LOVE this bundle, even though I'm not sure what I would do with it. What a challenge it would be even to cut it up!

Cheryl said...

I grew up going the upper in Michigan and spending hours at Lake Michigan. Although it is a "lake" and not an ocean, the feelings on the beach are the same. I love the colors and can think of a wonderful picnic blanket I could make with it. I do not have a blog and my email is ctrau48@gmail.com

Thanks,
Cheryl

Joyzelle said...

Water - Beach - refreshing colors, a sure fire recipe for fun. My daughter just moved away but is now close to the beach. Missing her but anxious to visit.

Kira said...

It is perfect for boys. There is so little for boys. I think it's super versatile and not to busy.

Mommarock said...

This fabric reminds me of all the years I followed my husband around his military career. It doesn't say Navy.. but it reminds me of all of the places we lived.. and the things we did.. I love it!!

Tylynn said...

This fabric is so cute for boys! I have 4 boys and have a gard time finding fabric that isn't baby-ish. I can see this decorating a whole bedroom! Quilt, curtains, toy bags, pillows and a ton more ideas using this darling fabric! Thanks!

MaddyMaze Studio said...

I actually live on the coast. Monterey Bay to be exact. I absolutely love the color combinations and I love the freshness of the prints. Don't get me wrong, I love my flowers but this seems to resonate with me. I'd love to do a series of pouches and wristlets for summer. My daughter and her friends would love them.

Quilt Monkey said...

I love the colors - a little different from what we are seeing so much of right now. Lately I can't get enough of orange - and I never thought I'd say that! Thanks for having the giveaway!

Lori Derrick said...

2 of my 4 boys love anything about the ocean so I'm redecorating their room costal and would love the fabric to make some fun stuff in there!

James-Linda said...

LOVE THESE COLORS!
THANKS SO FOR SHARING!

jldouglas@wispwest.net

Nancy said...

I just saw a sneak peak of this fabric the other day online...I LOVE IT!! My sister owns a home on a lake and pretty soon she is turning 60! This would make a perfect quilt for her... and the bottle caps are genius!!

CaraQuilts said...

I love this line because the colours are fun and bright, it can be used for boy or girl, and it really reflects YOU. I've admired your patterns and am loving seeing you move into fabrics and persevere through what would have stopped many long before now.

Happy Cottage Quilter said...

Oh wow, this fabric is fabulous! What an incredible quilt it would make. I love the cheerful colors. Great design. Thanks!

peggy said...

Love the crispness of the colors and I've always had a thing for the coast. Living in California it's almost impossible not to be coastal influenced.

Lisa Marie said...

Wow, there are so many things I like about this collection. The crabs and bottle caps appeal to my love of novelty fabrics. The ones with dots...well, I just love dots. I love the colors and the leafy looking kelp. Simply fabulous! Thanks so much for the chance to win.

Karen said...

Living in Pensacola - right on the Gulf of Mexico - we love all things coastal. And last year we had the oil spill, so I would celebrate with a fun summer quilt!

Julie said...

I love this fabric! We are spending time on the Oregon coast this summer (reliving my son's favorite memory as a kid) and this fabric would make a great quilt to remind us of our trip together. Way to go!

Shaunab said...

I love your new coastal line and would love love love to make something out of it.

Megan R. said...

I love it, I love that it is so different and it's something you haven't seen before. It looks like it belongs in the pottery barn catalog made into a quilt.

Patty D from NC said...

I am really looking forward to seeing this fabric up close. It looks like fun and reminds me of the beach when I would go with my parents many (many) years ago. I like that feeling.

Lynnae said...

I absolutely love the colors. They are so fun.

Rosa said...

I love the colors and those fabrics remaind me summer.

Emily said...

I love the bright colors! It's just like hangin' out at the beach, diggin' for crabs and enjoying the salt air. It's a vacation!!!

Teri said...

Roses are red
Violets are blue
I'm imagining coastal
In fabric for me from you!

Jannis said...

My god daughter is moving to Puerto Rico soon. She will be living on the beach and I would love to make her a lap quilt to take with her. Going Coastal fabric would be perfect!!! Thanks for the give away it is very sweet of you.

Alicia said...

I need some coastal, because even though I live in Fla, I live away from the coast. And when we do make it out Coastal. There are too many tourists. And I know this Coastal will be beautiful in my living room with NO tourists.

yorkie mom said...

I love Going Costal!! It is so crisp and clean looking. Would make an awesome summer beach snuggle quilt. Great Giveaway! gougeonathome@charter.net (Allison)

Jen W said...

Just reminds me so much of Summer
vacation! Days at the beach - such great memories! Thank you so much for the giveaway - too sweet.

Jo said...

Your fabric line reminds me so much of home. I grew up in New England and now live on the west coast. The fabrics remind me of my childhood summers spent on the beach and out sailing.......when it seemed as if everything in life would be good forever!

Donkaloosa said...

I LOVE the crabs, and the bottle cap print, and that plaid!!!! It would really be a different theme for me to work with and could be so much fun!

LymeRicky said...

I've been looking for a cute fabric line for four years to make a 'beach' theme quilt for my son, but I haven't loved anything until now! The colors are fantastic, with enough contrast and interest to make a great quilt. I really can't wait to get my hands on it!

mariebeers said...

I live on the Florida east coast for over 40 years, yes, I love this fabric. Thanks for the chance to win.

Moose on the Porch Quilts said...

Thought you might like to see what I did with my fat quarter bundle:
http://moosequilts.blogspot.com/2011/05/going-coastal-quilt.html
I had so much fun playing! Thanks!

TotallyAmy said...

This fabric reminds me that winter is FINALLY over, the snow is gone, and it's time to enjoy the summer and the ocean!!!

Quilting_Chris said...

I am a water lover. There is nothing more soothing than hear the waves crash against the shore and this fabric line makes me think I can hear that sound. Just lovely.

Carol said...

It's the colours that attracted me and the fresh clean lines. They're great fabrics and would fit right in with my stash.

Ned's Place said...

I love the new Going Coastal range especially the Crab Walk,Patchwork Plaid and the Bottle Caps. I can see this range made up with Jaybird Quilts new pattern Chopsticks just lovely.

Kate said...

The plaid caught my eye - I love the wonderful oranges and blues in this line. (And I like the crabs.)

paulette said...

I LOVE the ocean...so how could I not love this fabric!! I would love to make a beach quilt for picnicking with this fabric!! Sheer beach perfection!
Thanks for the chance to win this salty little bundle!
Paulette

patay said...

What a perfect fabric for summer. The timing is perfect and the designs sing summer fun and time spent at the water!! Perfection.

Angela D. said...

This line is fabulous! We have a "near" the beach house and I would love to make a quilt out of this fabric for it. I especially love the kelp print. The colors are great too!

Beth said...

I love the colors of the fabric. I love the bottle caps. I like the way the fabric says beach without being a 'novelty' fabric or being too cutesy.
Have fun at market.

Cheri C. said...

I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this line. I moved from UT to SC and I have yet to get to the beach. This soooo reminds me of the beach!! When you first showed any signs of this, I got totally excited. I have already picked a pattern and am ready to get going with this. I am so proud of you. It is not the "normal" stuff you keep seeing over and over. It is so refreshing!!! Yeah for you!!! (and us - thank you!!!)

Deb said...

Aside from the obvious, I love the colors and designs...I live inland...in Nebraska and will have no other chance to GO COASTAL this summer!!

Deb from clutteredquilter.blogspot.com

Renee said...

OHHHHH!! What a beautiful line of fabrics....so great to have the plaids and the flowers--so fun to have all the colors of summer! We got snow here in Idaho Falls this morning....I'm dying for fun, warm colors!

ByTheSea said...

I love it and need it because I live on the PNW coast. :)

Jenn said...

I love the oranges and blues! That's why I love this line, the colors are fabulous. Plus who doesn't like something that makes them think of the beach?

Miss 376 said...

What a great way to bring the sea to a land locked county

Kathy said...

Beautiful bundle! I live in Ohio in which it is raining and raining right now. The colors in this bundle would definitely brighten my day. Thanks for the chance to win them.

ZanBryDesigns said...

I love your line it is so bright and cheerful and it makes me smile. I wanted to be a Marine Biologist. I have always had a love for the coast and it's creatures. But sadly I am allergic to sand and I break out in hives.

Teri said...

This would be a great line to use for a quilt for my nephew who is in the Navy and getting married.

Dorothée said...

I just love the colours, the joy, the freshness of your inspiration. You're daring to mix colours which are not often are.
Anyway it's so great that if I don't win it (I never do) I'll buy it !

Ronnie said...

I love the seaside motifs and I just happen to live on an island so it would be fun to make something with this line of fabric.

Pat said...

Beautiful colors and movement in the designs. It would be perfect for a beach quilt this summer

Jane said...

Beautiful colors...and plaid!

Lee Ann said...

I would love me some Going Coastal -- literally! I love going to the shore and the beach and hope that we go again this year.

Anyway, thank you for a chance to win some of these cute fabric.

Jenny said...

being land locked in Indiana, the idea of crabs and water fabrics is very appealing! would love to make a 'coastal' picnic quilt for us!! good luck at market!

Sarah W said...

I love the orange....peppy without being garish, as oranges tend to do. Fresh colors. At any rate, I haven't been to a fabric store since January!! Nothing would thrill me more than to have a beautiful stack of fabric to play with.

grendelskin said...

Of course I've been dying to get my grubby little hands on it! Konda from Moose on the Porch did such a great job with it, I think I'd use her pattern to get something equally cheery!

Robert said...

This would make the perfect wedding quilt for my USAF son and his future bride. Their theme is beach, maryland crabs etc. Even if I don't win the set, it will be on my purchase list since I know it is the perfect collection for them! (and me)

sue said...

The entire line makes me smell saltwater on a brisk breeze but it's the bottle caps that really appeal! So fun!!

Leslie's Itchin to be Stitchin said...

OMG, What's not to love. The colors are amazing, gotta have some

Anita in Florida said...

I love nautical prints...I would have a ball making a quilt out of this line...thanks for the chance.

Mary Jo said...

I would love to work with this line. I love the colors, especially the gray with the orange. The crabs and stars are my favorites. Well the bottle caps are very cute too! am anxious to see what people do with this line. Mary Jo

Denise in PA said...

Because I love the coast!! Also, I think this fabric line is very different and I love the colors and fun motifs!

Tammy said...

Oh how I love this line! The beach is my favorite place and I adore the colors! I found your site from the Moose blog and love what she did with the orange...my favorite color!

Melissa L said...

I live in Ft Worth, TX but I dream of the beach that is why I love this fabric!

BarefootTams said...

I just love the sea theme of these prints!! So many happy memories and thoughts associated!

jillyヅ said...

Reading your previous post and the "story" behind your beautiful line is what makes it even more beautiful. What an awesome thing to do while going through a rough patch. Taking a negative and making a postitive is truly inspiring. I hope whomever wins will be blessed and make many beautiful things with these fat quarters.

blessings, jilly

Mary said...

I love the Going Coastal fabric because it reminds me of the first time I ever saw the ocean three years ago in Washington and Oregon (so beautiful!) and again last summer in Florida. I'm a mid-west girl and we just don't have anything like it here. I was in awe.
Also, the plaid just makes me happy!

Sinta Renee said...

Coincidentialy I just posted today about beachy colors and my passion for color! I have a collage showing coastal colors (Maine Coattage style) and how I want to paint all my furniture this theme! So to find your post showing your amazing fabric line- it made my week! I almost want to fly to Utah right now so I can get some at Market!!! Pleeeeese enter my name into your contest! I'll have my fingers crossed!

Paula said...

So not like me, but I love these fabrics! :)

Shanna said...

I LOVE this line of fabric!! I am from California and lived close to the beach for most of my childhood...these prints bring back those days :o) And I LOVE the grey added in, too!

P. said...

What's not to love? The colors and prints are fresh and gorgeous!

Jandi said...

As I watch more snow and rain fall here, this line makes me hopeful that summer will arrive. Love it!

Yvonne said...

Living one mile from the coast I just love your fabric! I would be thrilled to be the first one to have your fabric here in the Netherlands and make a fun beach bag out of it!
Have fun at Market, I hope you will do good busines and meet lots of fans!

Alyssa Grace said...

I love "Going Coastal" for three reasons.
The line is actually beachy and screams "road trip!" where as most lines are cheesy and cheap looking.
Secondly, the colors! This line reminds me so much of my grandma because she was a beach/road trip lover and she would always wear these colors. This line is definitely not old lady though ;)
And finally, those sand-dollar prints! They really are a versitile looking fabric...I can see each color in SOOOOOO many quilts!!!!!

Congrats! It's a beautiful, nautical line! And the rope tie is a great touch!!!

Mel&Chloe said...

Love this collection because even though you were suffering with pain, anxiety, isolation, nausea, etc... you take us out to the beach. This collection transports us to oxidized sea air, sandy feet and warm sun on our backs!!!

Barbara McD said...

I would love to win this line because it's so different than any other "beachy" fabrics I've seen in the past!

Machelle said...

I love,love the new line and colors. It just makes me happy, I would love to play with some and make a cute quilt.

Nicole said...

Thanks for hosting such a great giveaway! I would love to make a picnic blanket quilt using for this line. It would be a perfect accompaniment to lazy-day BBQs and potluck parties in the park.

Tracey said...

The California girl comes out in my when I see this fabric! Love to surf!

Michele said...

I love it because I love bottle caps.....I had a collection glued on Art Board when I was in elementary school! How cool is that? And I love the crab print :-) We live in coastal Florida so I love it all :-) So beachy!

amber said...

I love the sea and would love a fabric to remind me of the sea.

Winona said...

Looks like a great line. i think it would make a perfect quilt for going on picnics. Great giveaway.

Linda said...

I live just 10 blocks from the coast in "The Most Southwesterly City in the Continental United States" and I need this fabric to show my Coastal Love! If Market is ever in San Diego, you can drive down the coast and see me!!
8-)

Wendy said...

Lived in Seattle 22 years and now retired to Las Vegas. This fabric reminds me of the beauty I left behind. Miss it so. Love your fabric. Love to win some. :-)

Andrea Hildebrandt said...

I simply MUST have this fabric!!! I have always loved all things beach! Now that I have a son, it's all the more reason to fall in love with this fabric! Thanks for the chance to win!!!

Heather said...

Not coastal, we live waaaay inland, but we have a lake place where we can pretend and where a quilt of this fabric would be lovely!

Karen said...

As a northern California resident, close to the ocean, I can appreciate all the elements of your beautiful fabric! As a former Long Island girl, I can doubly appreciate the water elements (especially the sea weed!). Congratulations on your new fabric line.

crickets said...

OMG, I love this line - "Going Coastal" is probably the closest I'll actually get to the coast this year - and I live for the beach!!! Living in Upstate NY near no water is tough....winning this fq pack will make it a bit more tolerable this summer!

Geraldine said...

Having grown up being at the beach in New England, I moved 16 years ago to inland Atlanta. Now I am in East Coast Florida and I NEED a beach blanket!!! These fabrics are perfect!! The madras plaid reminds me of the preppy clothes we wore and the bottle caps remind me of the snack shacks on the beach! The bottle caps design is one that I do not think many designers would think of - you really have to be a beach bum to recognize this!!

smileynann said...

I TOTALLY love this line -- and I've never really been to the coast! :) My favorite has to be the sea kelp... although I also love the bottle caps... and the sand dollar...

L. said...

That fabric would be fantastic to remind me that eventually summer will get here- or at least somewhere. This has been a very cold damp winter-spring here in Seattle, and some days sunny fabrics are the only color in my day! Plus the crabs are adorable.

Sherryl said...

It's the bottle caps! It's all about the bottle caps! Well and the colors, sure. But... the bottle caps! Too cool. Gonna have to get me some yardage of that for sure.
sunshdws@yahoo.com

Lisa said...

Well, I live by the ocean so love anything that relates to that.

Denise said...

Oh my gosh! I am so land locked here in Iowa, and I have not been to the coast for 5 years! This would be like the breath of ocean air, sand between my toes and seafood shacks that I love all rolled into one. I would have a blast putting this summer quilt on the patio...and dreaming of 'coastal' walks. Thanks for sharing your treats - Denise Wood

Sandy said...

This would be the PERFECT line to use to make a quilt for my hubby! He loves the ocean and has been a crab fisherman for years now. Love the crab print!!! Thanks for the opportunity to win!

p1aceboeffect said...

I really like this line. I like the color palate. I can't think of another line that has that sort of palate. The plaid and the bottle caps are particular favorites of mine.

When I was wee, my family would go to the gulf every year to vacation in the summer. There was this well loved quilt that was always our beach blanket. If I won this giveaway I would use it to make a special beach blanket quilt for my family.

Have fun at the show, your fabric looks fabulous.

Gari said...

I love bright and happy fabrics and this looks just perfect. I would love to win your bundle.

Joslin said...

I love the bottle cap fabric. Thanks goodness for another gender neutral line.

DianeY said...

Where do I start! I love the colors first off-I always love brights & you picked the perfect shades of all of them, especially the blues & greens!
I love everything beachy! I live in Hawaii and I'd be in big trouble if I didn't!
Love the plaid, the bottlecaps & the sea kelp the most and would love the whole collection!

Peggy said...

Oh my goodness, this line is perfect!!! I am in the process of trying to turn my craft room into a "Cape Cod" room. I want the light, airiness of being on Cape Cod beach.

I love the blues and greens. I may pick a hue out of the fabric for my wall color! Think I might even make myself some Patchwork curtains for this room.

Thank you very much for this opportunity. Peggy.

Deborah A said...

I live on a Lake right beside the local yacht club. My husband isi a sailor and has been greatly involved in the construction of a new clubhouse. Your fabric is perfect for a quilt for the club and for that matter for many items around my house; curtains, pillows, quilt, potholders, an apron for Michael's (husband) birthday and the list goes on and on. I have been searching for gender neutral beach inspired fabric forever and I have found it in yours - it's a winner - CONGRATULATIONS, I wish you much success with the line.

Strikkelise said...

I grew up with my toes in salty water, and this reminds me of my beachcombing times. The bottlecaps make me think of all the little "tableaux" we made in the sand, out of shells, stones and small things found on the beach.

mjb said...

Such a perfect summertime print! I'd love to make a runner for the picnic table with it.

Melissa H. said...

The colors and the designs have such a clean and bright quality. It is all tremendously appealing!

Jennifer said...

I love love love your patchwork plaid! I love the whole collection because it is so crisp and has great contrast. Thanks for designing it. :-) jen from atl

Erin said...

Oh my! Only one reason why I love this line? Let's see, I'm a coastal girl, married to a boy from Maryland. Those crabs are perfect for him and the sea stars are perfect for me. And we collect bottle caps. It's like you made the line just for us!!

Nikki said...

Yay! a fabric collection that I could make something for my eldest boy out of.

We go to a wee cottage on the north east coast of Scotland every chance we can and both my boys spend the entire time searching for crabs on the rocks.

Letterpress said...

I think you're on to something here! When I lived on the East Coast, I once found a little lonely fat quarter in the bottom of the bin--but nothing else. I live in Southern California, and again, there is nothing to represent us. Nothing, that is, until now.

While I love it all--the dots (of course), the stars and the kelp (so Northern California!) and those fabulous bottle caps--the grays remind me of our days at the shore. It's the color of the beach just after the sun sets and we're waiting for the traffic to clear so we can go home. We're picking up our beach chairs, shaking out the towels, fighting the gulls for our trash so we can throw it away. We sit on our coolers, soaking up the last of our day at the beach.

I'm heading over to my quilty blog right now to write about it--kudos to you for such a strong collection. (And I hope your cancer is in remission!)

I am always looking for "boy" prints that don't look too young and these are great. Plus I saw the quilt Konda made with it and that finished me.

I absolutely love this collection. I've been in a bit of a funk lately- a lot of drama in my life and I kind of lost my love for everything, including fabric (very unlike me). This is the first line that has made me smile- and I haven't had much to smile about lately.

tricialee said...

I love this line cause I have boys and this line is perfect for them especially the plaid.

nirak59 said...

Love it! I think I'm going to use it for the next Moose on the Porch quilt along...

I was blog hopping when I ended up here. So glad that I did and amazingly enough you're having a giveaway (and it doesn't involve me dancing naked around an oak tree at midnight on the full moon in the third quarter while chanting your blog name.) Thank you.

I've been planning a quilt and looking for the perfect beachy fabric for it. Yours fits the bill splendidly. I'll probably add some stripes too but it'll be beautiful. I'll be on the look out for your fun fabric.

Thanks again for the giveaway. I've got my fingers crossed and will be dreaming away.

(My word verification is 'lubity'. lol)

Mego said...

Oh MY!!!! I LOVE this...I've been spending my summers at the Oregon Coast for WAY too many years and the cabin NEEDS a new quilt!!! This line is FABULOUS! Of course, even if I DO win, I will need to buy serious YARDAGE of those bottlecaps and plaid! GOOD JOB EMILY!!!

Scrappy quilter said...

What a great giveaway. I love the colors and would love to win.

Lisa said...

I love the crabs which remind me of Maryland crab feasts with hot, spicy crabs.

Susie said...

I just love the water & beach. Who doesn't? These fabrics would make a fantastic ensemble for my beachy porch & more. The colors are marvelous! Love the little crabbies the best too!
Congrats! Job well Done!
Have fun at Market.

Barb in Mi said...

I just love the colors - and the title is the best!
Especially for all of us that don't live at the coast...
Now when things are getting tough, I just say "I am going coastal! See ya!". And maybe soon, that could mean for me: disappearing under a quilt made from your fabric collection!!!

Thanks so much!

Jane said...

I found out about your fabric line on the Michael Miller website-Blog and I adore it. I'm so excited to use it for a quilt for my sister who loves the beach. Thanks for sharing!

Ann in NC said...

Fun collection! Nautical, but with a twist and fun designs and colors! Wishing you the best with your fabric! Hope you had a successful market too!

Patoka Valley said...

going coastal....reminds me of a wonderful trip to the coast with my girlfriends........oh to go back to the beach....tho about 1/2 of us here in the midwest are surrounded by way more water than we care to be.

JEllen said...

it was so nice to meet you today. i so love this collection. it will be so perfect for our store so close to lake erie.

LeAndrea said...

I love the plaid! Thanks for the giveaway!

Cathy said...

I love this fabric line. I just saw it and fell in love with it. I am from the east coast of Canada and anything coatal warms my heart. Thanks for the giveaway.

Janie said...

I love the madras...and the crabs...and the sand dollars...oh, I love them all

onlymehere said...

I've done my sewing sanctuary in a beach-type theme and just absolutely love blue! I could find so many uses for this fabric, just thinking about it gets my creative juices flowing! Since I don't live anywhere near a beach I have to bring the beach to me and this fabric would help me do the trick!

Sheila said...

i would love to win it because i live on the coast, Of Australia, i could make a coastl quilt and wave, from my coast to yours.

Andrea R said...

Did I mention I like on a lake? ;)

Miss Holly said...

Holey Moses!! I guess I'm not the only one who loves this fabric!! Sounds like your having a wonderful time!! Someday I hope to go to one of these wonderful events...enjoy every second!!!

Heather said...

Oh my gosh, I love your fabrics!! I am a beach person, well, my whole family is. We like to surf and play at the Oregon coast every weekend, and our house is decorated very beachy. Your fabric will fit right in. The crabs are fantastic! Great job putting this line together :)

Deb said...

I love this line because of the gray! And I need a picnic blanket to take to the beach for picnics while watching the sunset!

Kylie said...

I love that the fabric is not too busy, the single graphic for each fabric is far more effective than trying to cram too much in. I especially love the sea kelp.

Becca said...

LOVE this line! There was nothing "boyish" out when I was making a quilt for my son that would still work for him when he was a teen so I had a really tough time coming up with something....how I wish this line had been around then. I see Boy's nursery or bedroom written all over it!

robin said...

This is now officially my new favorite line of fabric. I LOVE the theme, the colors, etc!!! Great giveaway!

Mary said...

Colors fantastic. Sea stars and kelp fabrics look awesome and the ocean is my place of peace. Just beautiful. Thank you for the opportunity to win some of it. Hope you have a wonderful time at market.

I live on the coast of SW Florida and love your fabric line! It is the prefect combination of coastal images without being cutesy. I would love a fat quarter bundle! ~ Karen

Nancy said...

Ok, so I just left a comment and blogger said it was saved but I don't see it on the list anywhere so I'll say it again, I love your fabric. It reminds me of the beach of course, which is always a good thing. Thanks for sharing it with us, and I hope you have a good time at market.

Jennifer said...

The patchwork plaid is my favorite, but I love the whole bundle! I think it's the contrast between the white and blues that make the whole line so crisp. And the crabs... perfect!

Carolyn said...

I loved on the coast of New England (RI and Maine) for the first 40 years of my life. I have lived on the the coast of Lake Champlain for quite a while now and I really miss the ocean coast. Fortunately I do get to the coast occasionally. Your fabric really captures the ocean feel (I can almost smell it!)

lpnjam@aol.com said...

I have really grubby grubby hands and hafta get them grubbier with going costal!!! Love your fabric.

Missyren said...

My nephew just told me that he wants me to make him a pair of shorts--but only with really cool fabric :) Your line is, according to him (and me), really cool! I also have yet to make him a quilt, and he is a beach loving kid! This is the perfect fabric for a ton of awesome projects! I can't wait to see it in stores :)

mary e said...

going coastal looks great, think i like the orange color way best. oh the plaid. love it. have fun at market. first visit, nice. :>)

Kate said...

I love anything with a nautical flavor: it reminds me of great summer memories with my family on the Cape!

Coloradolady said...

I so love this line. It reminds me of my son, he moved to the coast about a year ago and I miss him so...I'd love to make him a quilt with this fabric to let him know I am not still too upset with him leaving home!!

My favorite thing is the colors, very vibrant and pretty!

kimland said...

LOVe...the colors, what a fun line! thanks for a chance to own some this goodness!

Mary on Lake Pulaski said...

I so love your new line of fabric Emily because:
- I'm a water baby - Aquarius
- every vacation has to be near water
- I live on a lake
- the colors fit right into my coastal decorated home
- I'm your biggest fan and so happy you designed a line of fabric.
Hope Market is awesome for you!

Jackie said...

Because I have 2 boys and this fabric WORKS!!

Joan and Kevin said...

I just love it. Thanks for the giveaway!

The Sayler Family said...

I have lived on both coasts and I love being "coastal". I love beachy themed stuff and I LOVE all the colors of the collection. I can't wait to whip up a quilt for my little ones to take on a picnic. There is nothing we love more than being at the beach!!

Paula said...

My favorite place in the world in the summer is the ocean...and I would love to create a quilt with your beautiful fabrics so I could wrap myself in the ocean every single day! Thanks so much for a chance to win! dtscrapper@yahoo.com

Snoodles said...

Those colors are so fresh and different from some of the other lines coming out - I love them! It doesn't matter how hot it is, we always head to the beach for our vacation....how nice to have a quilt that keeps those memories close! That's what I'd use those for!

Deb said...

The colors are so beautiful and saturated. Would love to have them to make a beautiful quilt. Thanks

Julie in WA said...

I love the predominant colors of red white and blue! Such a cool collection! Great job!

Renea said...

This fabric reminds me of when my husband was in the Navy and we lived right across from a beach in San Diego. Would love to make a quilt to remind us of this wonderful time in our lives. Thanks for the giveaway.
