Fabric Love #21 & Fabric Giveaway: End of Summer

Are you ready to say good bye to summer? Pack the kids back into school? Say good-bye to lazy afternoons at the pool? I am :) - OK I'm biased. Did I ever mention Autumn is my favorite season? Love it. The slight chill in the air and cooler nights. The still warm days and chillier mornings. O - and the best part? The colors of course.

With signs of Autumn peaking up I am super happy to have these fabrics to celebrate it. Bold and beautiful fabrics from Alexander Henry:

Farmdale Orchard (tint/red)
Cookery Stripe (red)

The details on both these fabrics are fantastic. The apples have crisscross lines giving it a very rustic and natural feel. And the stripe fabric is absolutely gorgeous. The little floral designs (sorry the photo doesn't do it justice) is sooo...perfect.  Both fabrics - LOVE LOVE LOVE the colors.  I am have a dozen projects I want to do with these...

Do you know what else happens during this time of year? School. With all the kids returning to school, I can't help but to get a little sentimental and start thinking about how fast they grow up and I get a little ...mushy... when I see these two cuties:

Paper Dolls - Turquoise
Paper Dolls - Blush

I know it's the same design just different colors - but aren't they both so cute! They are from Studio E and I have no idea what I'm going to make with these yet, but I couldn't resist.   The little dollars and teddy bears are quite irresistible.


FABRIC GIVEAWAY
Lucky for you, I'm giving away 1/2 each of these Paper Dolls fabrics. So that's 1 combined yard of the Paper Dolls fabric for FREE. As usual, just leave a comment to this post and be a JAQS Studio Follower and/or subscriber.  The lucky random winner will be chosen Tuesday night (August 23, 2011 around 9PM PST). Good luck :)!

These fabrics could be found at my lovely little fabric shop - JAQS Fabrics:
Here for Etsy Shoppers and Here if you're not on Etsy

It's a little sad that summer is almost over with, but we all are glad that just around the corner is fall like weather, some relief from this heat. I know I am. The Paper Doll fabric is so cute. My daughter is all grown up and all I have at home is boys, it would be nice to make some for a girl again.

This would be great fabric to use for a little girl's quilt (or skirt) - by this time tomorrow we will have 5 grandnieces and I am behind on quiltmaking.

Ella said...
