Reveal and Giveaway! (TWO fat quarter bundles!)

UPDATE:
Thank you for your interest....this giveaway is now closed.

I know that I've been AWOL for a few days, and I do apologize to all of you --- it really is inexcusable that I've left you without a word, and I'm really quite contrite. I actually have a good excuse, well, I have eight of them . . . they've taken more of my time than I realized.  See?


I'm getting back to my sewing, though, so I hope my apology is accepted?  I saw a few nods -- I'll go with that. No use flogging myself any further. Here, will you take this wet noodle and toss it?

(Grinding noise)  Changing gears, now, would you like to see the Christmas project reveal? Oh, good, I was hoping that at least one of you would say yes!!  Here is my new Christmas wall-hanging!!


(Sigh. I tried several times to get a picture to upload here, but I'll try again later . . .)

It's made from Jacquelynne Steves' (The Noble Wife blog and web store) new fabric line (and it is in the stores now!) called "Oh Holy Night" --- these are dreamy fabrics in luscious colors from Jacquelynne's palette. 




(Waving) Thank you, Jacquelynne! I enjoy her fabrics and projects so much -- she shows lovely things on her blog, and I routinely drool over the fabrics and kits in her store! Check out these pretty prints and solids:



The panel is adorable --- think of your elementary school Christmas pageant, with all of the kids and the animals helping out!


When I was trying to decide what I would design with this line, I kept coming back to this panel. To me, this is the heart of Christmas, and I was loving all the mousies and squirrels hanging up their ornament balls and stars around the edge of the panel. I wanted to showcase the gorgeous fabrics, so I decided to make "ornaments" from them and have them wind their way around the scene . . . then, you know me; the 3D bug bit me again - but I'll show you that later! (Wink)

After cutting strips of the light green, I cut out circles of the others, approximately three inches in diameter.

I fussy cut some strips from her striped fabric:


See there?



 . . . and made tubes from them -- I have these cool plastic tools from Clover so that I can press the seams where I want them, like so:


 and then use the tubes for stems for flowers --- or garland for balls!


Once the garland was stitched down, it was time to blanket-stitch the balls onto the garland:


Love those colors!


This is the point at which my camera died, so I won't be showing you the details on the stitching, etc!
I've got the balls on the garland, and assembled the body of the wall-hanging. Remember the 3D part of the project that I mentioned? Well, each ornament needs something that attaches it to the garland, so each one will receive a red ribbon bow. Then, there will be holly leaves, cut from the lovely green print from the line.
I found a great tutorial on "quickie" 3D leaves, at this link. I'm going to be making those and tacking a couple at each ribbon!
Oh, and I forgot to show you --- I gave one of the mousies a cameo role on an ornament --- I fussy cut an oval with him in it, and another oval of the red print; I put it all together with my trusty Lapel Stick and here he is:


Sorry about the picture quality --- that's my seven-dollar-wonder-with-no-flash! I'll pause for a moment to allow you time to ooooh and aaaah about my serious bargain hunting . . . (Grin)  It will do just fine on outdoor shots of quilties and projects until I get something better!  (That mousie was the one indoor shot that I tried.)
Now, whilst I am working on putting my 3 dimensional touches on my project, I think we should have something fun for you Lilypadquilters.  Hmmmmm, what can we do?

I know!  A giveaway!!

Jacquelynne is providing not one, but TWO fat quarter bundles of these gorgeous "Oh, Holy Night" Christmas fabrics for you Lilypadquilters to try to win!



I'm trying something new this time --- I hope you will let me know if you like this or not! I thought I'd see how the Rafflecopter thingie works . . . 
Now, you do NOT have to do everything listed here, OK? You can pick and choose --- you can do one, two, or however many you would like to! I tell you the truth; you will love these pretty fabrics!

a Rafflecopter giveaway

I sure hope this works! Let the entries begin, and good luck! 

Love,

  2. The kids read a book in kindergarten about duckling and they were named Mack, Pack, and a few other rhyming names. Thanks for the great giveaway!

    ReplyDelete
  3. Ok - I don't get those entry thingies and not sure I enter there or enter here - I am computer challenged. But love the fabric line and pretty panel. Your photos share a lovely piece in progress.

  4. I make a Christmas quilt each year! this would be perfect for 2012!

    ReplyDelete
  5. I don't think there's 8 names but one year I named my lambs after the firemen in 'Camberwick Green'! They started ' Pugh, Pugh, Barney McGrew .....and ended 'Grub'!! You'll have to resort to google to find all the names!

    ReplyDelete
  6. Christmas table runner and coasters would look really nice. made from those fabrics.

    ReplyDelete
  7. I always worry I haven't done it right in Rafflecopter thingie, I am like Sharon, I never know whether the comment should be here or there!!! Linda xx

    ReplyDelete
  8. Okay so now I see I have made a mess because my comment should have shown the names of the ducks....told you I got confused with Raffle!!! And now I can't remember what the question was that I was suppose to answer (STOP LAUGHING) it's my age I am brain dead at the moment. So you can have the ducks names here - you didn't say if they were male or female though... so Fred and Ginger, Gertie and Bertie, sorry can't think of any more. xxxxxxxx PS don;t think I like Rafflecopter...:-(

    ReplyDelete

  12. Cute fabrics, thank you for offering this giveaway!
    I'd use some of it for a Christmas wallhanging, and I see Kaleidoscopes and fuzzy cut hexies in the flowers on the fabric.

    ReplyDelete
  13. I'd make a Christmas quilt which would be gorgeous cos those fabrics are so lovely. By the way, the missing names for the Camberwick Green firemen are Cuthbert and Dibble.

    ReplyDelete
  14. I think I'd make a Christmas table runner, I don't have any Christmas fabrics so it would be ideal.

    ReplyDelete
  15. Names for the Ducklings? How about calling them Laurel and Hardy, Abbott and Costello, Butch and Sundance and finally, Thelma and Louise.

    Oh, and I don't think I like Rafflecopter either. I tried for ages to answer the questions by typing into the boxes on it with no luck, so I think I'm doing it right, but there's no guarantee.

    ReplyDelete
  16. Dibble, Dabble, Waddle, Mucky Duck, Paddle and Meggie.

    ReplyDelete
  17. I would make a wall hanging or quilt. I collect nativity sets/scenes so this fabric would be a super addition. Love it.

    ReplyDelete
  18. I'm also finding this entry process a bit confusing, but this counts as my comment. Maybe I just need more coffee. The Noble Wife blog is super.

    ReplyDelete
  19. A Christmas quilt for the couch. Name the ducklings: Huey, Dewy, Louie, Doc, Sneezy, Grumpy, Dopey and Alice. Now, that's original, isn't it?

    ReplyDelete
  23. That's a lot of ducks to name! My skills at this are not so good. Maybe go with a theme, like Mexican food. They could be Taco, Burrito, Salsa, Tortilla, etc. Or maybe not!

    ReplyDelete
  24. Love the fabric. I would make tree skirts for gifts. Thanks for a chance.

    ReplyDelete
  25. how about Daisy, Donald, Daffy, Pluto, Goofy, etc

    ReplyDelete
  30. I'd make another patchwork christmas crocodile (I think my current christmas crocodile, Noel, would like a festive friend).

    ReplyDelete
  31. Duckling names? I'd be tempted to go with water/weather themed words. Splish and Splash. Brook and River. Rio and Agua. Stormy and Sunny.

    Or name them for local bodies of water.

    ReplyDelete
  32. I would love to make a set of Christmas placemats!

    ReplyDelete
  33. cool giveaway, am I still in the drawing if I didn't do all 8?

  39. I would make a wall hanging from that fabric, it's beautiful the colors are so rich. I know they're ducks but I would name them after the 7 dwarfs, fit to their little personalities. I don't really like the copter, I always feel like I've done it wrong.

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  61. I am just getting into Christmas gifts. I bought a book on dresser scarfs. It would look lovely

    ReplyDelete
  62. I'm a happy follower! By the way - since you asked for opinions, I'm not particularly fond of the Rafflecopter thingy. It's hard to figure out what to do next and where to do it.

    ReplyDelete
  63. Hope I'm doin' this right :-)
    The fabrics are beautiful. The panel is sweet and I would quilt that up as a wall hanging for my nephews family. The rest would more than likely go into table runners that I want to give as Christmas gifts this year.

    ReplyDelete
  64. I checked out The Noble Wife site and signed up to follow! Love it!!!

    ReplyDelete
  65. I also liked The Noble Wife on Facebook :*)

  66. Names for ducklings....boy, I wouldn't get anything done with those around...I wouldn't be able to take my eyes off them. I like to name animals after Jane Austen characters. I think I see 6 ducklings there....Pride and Prejudice might be a good source....Jane, Miss Elizabeth Bennet, Mr Darcy, Caroline, Charles and Mrs.Bennet for a nervous one :-)

    ReplyDelete
  67. PS I love The Noble Wife fabric lines too and her pins :-)

    ReplyDelete

    Giggle...I don't know how to name a duck.

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  99. Either a Christmas quilt or table runner!

    ReplyDelete
  100. My mom always used to talk about the duck that she had growing up. His name was Herman, and I think it's great. Such a different name is perfect for such a different pet! :)

    ReplyDelete
  101. A Christmas quilt is what I would probably make.

    ReplyDelete
  102. Eight names-wow. Reindeer names? Dasher, Dancer, Prancer, Vixen, Comet, Cupid, Donder (or Donner), and Blitzen

    ReplyDelete
  103. This would make such a cute wallhanging!

    ReplyDelete
  104. I duckling definitely needs the name "quackers"!

    ReplyDelete
  105. I love Jacquelynne's fabric designs and would love to win this. I would probably make a Christmas quilt.

    ReplyDelete
  106. Wow eight ducklings to name is a lot. I have no idea where you should start on that one. If there were only seven I would say name them after the seven dwarfs but there are eight so I don't know.

    ReplyDelete
  107. I would make a Christmas quilt or perhaps a tree skirt ... OR BOTH!!

    ReplyDelete
  108. Some froggy themed names for the ducklings could be cute. Ribbet ... Croak ... Toad ... Froggy ... Google ... Jumper ... Lily ... Padswoth, of course.

    ReplyDelete
  109. I've been wanting to make Christmas quilts for my grands, and I am always on the look out for things to make into banners for patients' rooms. So many possibilities! :)

    ReplyDelete
  110. Those little ducklings are so cute! Not knowing if they are boys or girls, you could have Polly, Molly, Dolly, Holly, Larry, Harry, Barry and Spot!

    ReplyDelete
  111. I'd love to make some Christmas table runners to give as gifts.

    ReplyDelete
  112. I'd love to make some fabric ornaments, or a small quilt!

    ReplyDelete
  113. I've been really wanting to make an Advent calendar for Anne, 3D style. I think this fabric would be perfect.

    ReplyDelete
  114. Ducklings...I'm thinking it would be really cute to name them after Santa's reindeer :)

    ReplyDelete
  115. I name my pets wild and outrageous things. So I don't know that you'd want my name suggestions! I name them after candy bars and toys and favorite book characters things. I once had a dog named Snickers and my first dog-a German Shepherd-I named Barbie. I loved Barbie dolls...still do!

    Anyway, I'll throw these names out there for your ducks (I wish I knew how many females/males there were for proper naming): Caramel, Choco, Oreo, Cinnamon, Chip, Crackerjack (or Quackerjack), Sundae and Mrs. Buttersworth. LOL!

    ReplyDelete

  118. I would make table runners for my sisters and brother's families!!

    ReplyDelete
  119. I would definitely make a table runner and a quilt for my mom with the fabric, it's perfect.

    ReplyDelete
  120. I would name them all after The Beatles or the Disney Princesses.

    ReplyDelete
  121. I suspect you cannot 'sex' these babies, so names need to be gender neutral. So perhaps flower or tree names?
    so, how about,
    Ash, Elm, Hazel, Holly, Beech, Oak, Maple and Alder?
    or, give them surnames only,
    Smith, Jones, Reid, Tanner, Lord, Simmons, Kent and Wellington?

    ReplyDelete
  122. I don't know about duck names... first will you be able to tell them apart and secondly will they actually 'know' their name? But in any case... here are some that I thought would be fun: Fred, Doctor, Waddle, Tulip, Wink, and Stella.

    ReplyDelete
  123. I would make a wallhanging for my grandsons. I have been looking at that fabric and loving it. As for the ducks.... I would name them all ducky till one of them came foward and told me something else :)

    ReplyDelete
  124. Hiya! I would probably some pillows, and maybe a wall hanging. I need some new Christmas decor around here. Thanks for having the giveaway. Blessed be, hugs!!!

    playamom57 at yahoo dot com

    ReplyDelete
  125. I think the fabrics would be adorable for a "countdown to christmas" wall hanging!!

    ReplyDelete
  126. Hiya again! Do ducklings have personalities??? If so, then they need to be named according to that. My dog's name is Sassy and it certainly fits her, or it used to. She's almost 17 now, so she's lost a bit of her spunk, but she's still a sweetheart. You just need to watch the ducklings and give them their names, if you can tell them apart. I'd get so confused, lol. Thanks again for the giveaway. Blessed be, hugs!!!

  127. I'd make my sister a quilt with this fabric!

    ReplyDelete

  154. I'm confused a bit about Rafflecopter so hope I'm doing this correctly. Question: answer: A Christmas wall hanging - though I'm already getting a bit paranoid when I read/see some of your peeks.

  177. I need to make a Christmas Tree Skirt for my daughter in love this year. This fabric would be fantastic. I would love to make a wall hanging for the family room in my son's home. I purchased the Fischer Price Nativity Set for both families. The grandkids are able to play with the figures and actually talk out the Christmas story. On Christmas eve they sing, "Away in the Manger" with the figures.
