Hand Maker fabrics!

Hand Maker fabrics

blog tour

it's true!
is arriving in stores as we speak

at Spring Market
Windham Fabrics invited the fabric designers to be a part of
the Windham Fabrics booth
it was important to me to show the work
of all of the people in my quilting life that have been an inspiration
been supportive
"we all get there together"

and so after nine quilting friends said yes
the grid wall became a reality
these are my nine

as life would have it, the other thing that happened 
was that during a file transfer from camera to computer
all photos from May through end of July
became corrupted
so I send my apologies to Angela Walters whose quilt
is behind the fabrics at the bottom right

each of "my nine"
agreed to post on the specific date
to tell you about their project - their pattern - their product - their design

while this blog tour kicks off the Hand Maker fabric
it's really all about "my nine"
and how thankful I am to have each and every one of them in my life

so please
head on over to their blog and leave a comment
click on their Facebook and instagram pages and like or follow them
(and me)

I'll post a reminder each day on my Facebook and Instagram feed
let's show these nine
how much we appreciate their creative spirit
and willingness to be a part of the

in addition to "my nine"
there were quilts by many people at Spring Market
and I want to thank each and every one of them
please visit these designers' sites, too

it wouldn't be a tour without the fabric, now, would it?
so each blog post host will randomly select a comment contributor
to receive
a Hand Maker fat quarter bundle 

so let's live up to it

please show "my nine" how much you appreciate
how they inspire you

and if you make something
post something
we want to be inspired by you

This fabric is wonderful. I hope I win some and for sure it will be on my 2017 must buy list. Can't wait to see what all the quilts look like upclose.

What a beautiful wall of quilts! I'd love to see these fabrics in a local quilt shop. Thank you for doing this blog fabric giveaway!

I love these fabrics, but just as much, I love the concept of "your nine". This weekend, a friend I've had for three decades called to tell me that her husband had died unexpectedly--at 56, which seems young to me, now that I'm 52. So the concept of a circle of friends who love and support and gather round has become very real and important and tender to me right now. And of course, I'm thinking of the quilts I need to make for my friend, and each of her three children, each of whom are hurting so very much. But it's good to reminded of the power of love.
