Blogger's Choice Bundle-My Picks

A couple of days ago I saw over at Quokka Quilts a fun little giveaway linky thing for choosing your own Blogger's Bundle from all the luscious goodies at the Fat Quarter Shop. I'm always up for a giveaway. While I don't have a ton of free time to do much today, I thought I could accomplish this without too much work. Thought being the optimum word! I was so wrong. It took me a lot longer to do than I thought it would. First I had to choose a main fabric to start with and then choose 11 other coordinates and 3 solids.

I hunted all over the shop and eventually settled on the ones below. Then I needed to make a collage of the pictures to add to the link up. Well that turned out to be the hardest part of all. The collage/mosaic sites wouldn't work right for me and I wasted tons of minutes uploading all the info and then hit "Create" and nothing happened. Many times I tried to no avail. Somehow I needed to figure this out before I wasted my entire day. Of course I would love to win half yards of all these gorgeous fabrics but I can't afford to spend multiple hours wrestling with the process to get entered in the first place.

Finally just now the mosaic thing worked for me so here it is. My picks are:
1. Terrain Mist Forest Floor by Kate Spain for Moda #27090-15
2. Primrose Tonga Batiks Peony Star Flower by Timeless Treasures #B8542-Peony
3. Terrain Mist Lichen by Kate Spain for Moda #27098-27
4. Terrain Stream Fern by Kate Spain for Moda #27099-17
5. Desired Things Olive Tonal Oblong Dots by Robyn Pandolph for RJR Fabrics #0082-4
6. Amelia Cotton Playful Purple Basket Weave by Me and My Sister Designs for Moda #22166-24
7. Always & Forever Passion Pink Swirls of Love by Deb Strain for Moda #19522-11
8. Essentials Medium Denim Petite Dots by Wilmington Prints #39065-404
9. Family Forever Green Swirl Texture by Benartex Fabrics #4556-44
10. Essentials Sparkle Purple Sparkles by Wilmington Prints #39055-666
11. Terrain Berry Fern by Kate Spain for Moda #27099-12
12. Essentials Purple Petite Dots by Wilmington Prints #39065-666
13. Bella Solids Bleached White by Moda #9900-97
14. Bella Solids Lavender by Moda #9900-33
15. Bella Solids Terrain Iris by Moda #9900-168

I would be really fun to win this bundle and see what all of these would actually look like in a quilt. If I am so lucky, I would just have to quickly find a pattern to use. Any suggestions you may have are always appreciated. Wish me luck!

I thought I recognized some of those Kate Spain prints - I was just cutting and organizing charm squares from Terrain and Good Fortune last night for a new project! Great work coordinating though ... I tend to just grab one fabric line and save myself the trouble.
