Give-Away Winners & Backing Fabric

The-Sewcial-NetworkBlog Hop Give-Away Winners!!!

The winners of the fabric bundles in my blog giveaway are Marian, Janice and Jen.  Congratulations to all of you and I can’t wait to see what you create with the charm packs and fabric fat quarters.  And, yes…I definitely included some of my favorite Moda Grunge™.  Click the link to see all the colors…so many colors….So tough to give it away but I’ll be at my local quilt shop–FabricSmart– next month teaching a workshop so I can stock up again on some of the colors I use the most.  I think that are well over 100 colors of grunge now?  Anybody know for sure?




This is Moda Grunge™   Key Lime.  You can probably see the tiny hints of very pale gray, pale yellow  and aqua in this fabric.  That’s what makes this line so wonderful to work with.

Backing Fabric Source

Sometimes I just get a bit….lazy….and don’t want to piece the back for a large quilt.  Of course, I buy quality fabric for the back so leftover  pieces eventually go into a block design or get pieced for the back. Even then, my leftovers are pretty long and wide so that pieicign goes faster.  Heaven….because I want to get back to designing and making tops.

One of the New Quilt Bloggers Hop is a family run business called Backside Fabrics.  They stock 108 inch wide fabrics in new modern designs.  Browse thorough their whole collection because there were many many modern quilt options that were not labeled under the category modern. And they offer prints, marbled, batiks and solids.

108 inch wide 100% cotton quilt backing fabric from the Chromadots Collection designed by Barbara Leonard for Blank Quilting #7304-77. This is a really fun, tone on tone, random dot print in blues.

For example, check out the Chromadots (left) and all of the marbled fabrics.








This one is called Avery. Such a cool woven look.





I just received my first order from Backside Fabrics and I am so thrilled.  Fast service and great choices.  [Disclaimer–they are not my sponsor and I received no compensation for this posting.]
