True Colors. Pretty Fabric. Fun Blog Tour.


Hello Folks!

I’m popping in to tell you about a blog tour that I’m participating in that involves chances for you to win lovely fabric. Yes, you’re going to want to keep reading.

In an effort to promote the True Colors line of mixer fabric prints, the folks at FreeSpirit are looking to spread some fabric love in the blogosphere.

They recruited some bloggers, sent us boxes of delicious fabric and gave us some extra goodies to give away. (Check back Jan. 29 to enter to win.)

I didn’t eat the fabric, of course, but my box contained a visual feast of Heather Bailey’s True Colors fabric and sampling of her lovely Lottie Da collection (below), which has a great vintage-inspired feel.

(Jacquie and Julie, my dear sisters, you really need to check this stuff out! Come over and sew with me!!)

So what is True Colors all about? Well, the folks at FreeSpirit describe it as “a new, designer-driven program featuring fresh, modern prints” created by designers Joel Dewberry, Anna Maria Horner, Heather Bailey and Jenean Morrison. Each designer created five distinctive prints in four color ways that can be used alone or as mixer prints in quilting and other sewing projects. The True Colors collection offers more creative options for fabric lovers and even look pretty in a pile.

I’ll be whipping up something fun using Heather’s True Colors prints mixed with her Lottie Da collection to post on my assigned day later this month. In the meantime, enjoy the rest of the tour (links below). The party starts Monday, folks! Don’t miss out!

Those colors are refreshingly different from my normal palette — a feast for my eyes this morning. Enjoy! Your sisters are so fortunate for that invitation, also!

Oh my goodness! I have gone to the other sites in this blog tour and I must say that I absolutely love, love, love the colorways you have on your site. The best word I can use to describe them are peaceful! I am looking forward to this line coming to a quilt shop near me very soon. Thank you for posting.

Love your pairings on the apron! I think some patchwork sofa pillows would be in order for me if I were lucky enough to win!

I have a very special baby quilt in the works using the Lottie Dah collection, so naturally some of heather’a true colors would fit right in!
I love that apron. So pretty and feminine. It would be a great skirt!
