One Fabric Nation — Sweethearts Giveaway
Well, I finished the Pastel Flame On! top. What do you think?
If you missed it, I showed you the beginnings of this quilt here when I introduced David Walker’s Sweethearts line for Free Spirit Fabrics. I am so delighted with how different this quilt looks compared to the original.
Below is another picture of a student’s version of Flame On! that I spotted in the Ray’s Grocery in Sisters, Oregon last summer. The quilt was done in class July 2014 and showing in Ray’s the whole week of the Quilters’ Affair event in Sisters last July. Don’t remember the student’s name (I am so sorry!) but I do remember that she was using all wine themed fabrics. Sorry for the poor photo quality. I took the picture with my phone, but obviously the settings were not set correctly. You can get the jist of it though. And again, a totally different look.
SOOOO …. let’s have a give away of some Sweethearts fabric, shall we?
This time I will be giving away a bunch of scraps and 2 1/2″ strips that I cut here in the studio on my Big Shot die cutter. I went rather quick on the 2 1/2″ strips, so they may be a little bit skewed in the center if I didn’t get them lined up perfectly. But hey, they’re free, so I think I can be forgiven.
Since I have two prizes, we’ll have one given away here on the blog and another given away on my Instagram page (My home away from home!) .
Let’s have your comments be about sweet stuff, people, or things that you love! Goes with the “theme” and open to a wide array of subjects.
I will draw names for this next Thursday in the AM on the Pacific Coast Timeclock.
Keep Sewing, Keep Happy!

You are very talented. The quilts look complex to me but you have mastered them quite well
Love, love, love my grandchildren. They are as sweet as can be!
I love my husband, children, grandchildren and quilting. I have a very large pile of quilts I need to get quilted and drop off at Hospice and the Women’s shelter but I enjoy the piecing so much that I haven’t got around to the quilting part.
Getting ready to make a peach pie for my sweetie from Georgia peaches that we bought fresh and froze last summer. A little golden sunshine on a cloudy cold winter day.
Love your quilt! So bright and cheery. I’m going to work on my Shadow quilt this afternoon. Good day to sew!
I love your quilt. It always amazes me how completely different a pattern looks with different fabric.
Your quilt in pastels is beautiful. It is a beautiful sunny day here in Oregon which should continue until Friday.
We have the sweeeetiest new Granbaby! Love making things for him! (also our sweeeeetie Grangirlies that are even learning to sew when with me!)
Love the pastel Quilt soooo much! You are soooo creative! Thanks for chance to win your Give-a-way too! 🙂
I do love hearts! Such pretty fabric. A few of the things I love: God, my husband and children, my sweet little Morike, kind friends, sewing, dark chocolate, great books, purple, curvy country roads, walks along a beach and naps.
Lovely and bright! I love sunshine and these remind me of a sunny day!
Love the pastels. These colors always make me think of early spring.
Pretty pastel fabrics! Your quilt is soft and lovely.

What a terrific design for a quilt. Different fabrics really do change up the look! I like it when I can’t pick out how quilts are pieced without really, really looking.
I’m sewing a bit almost every day again, and I’m improving and getting more comfortable. So that’s something I’m very happy about. The One Month Goals and different online challenges I have taken on for 2016 have so far have really helped me to stay on my target for working to finish older projects and to work on new ones too.
My sweet surprise was a few weeks ago when our son invited me to have a standing lunch with him on Wednesdays. This has really made me happy. As a result of the lunches, we are already getting more comfortable with chatting with each other again too. It’s what I’ve dreamed of for a while, so that’s my greatest love right now!!
Thanks for the chance!
I think this fabric would made a beautiful quilt for a granddaughter!! Love my grands and would love to add to that number…I think making a quilt with this beautiful fabric would inspire one of the 7 kids to get busy!!!
Love you’re Sweetheart quilt!
Hello, what a gorgeous quilt. As a beginner I enjoy seeing all the different designs n hoping 1 day I get to b close to your level of expertise. Quilts r a reflexion of our ♡ being passed along. Hope to read n see more of your work.
I love how the two quilts appear so very different. Same pattern shows the fabrics brilliantly. Love my kids and as one is lacking in a quilt, this would be awesome for her!
The colors remind me of some of the vintage quilts that were around during my childhood. Very sweet quilt!!!
I have 12 grandchildren to love on, nothing more sweeter then that, well a beautiful husband also…thanks for the chance to own some “sweet” fabric strips
I love making things for my family and friends. I love scrappy quilts. I love chocolate. I love finally living close to one of our daughters. I love the Lord and all the adventures He has led us to. I love reading. I love color and patterns in things. I love traveling. I love all our International friends. I love being married to my wonderful husband.
Loving your pastel flame on. These scraps would be the perfect something to create a gift for my cousins new baby! Love new babies.
This Fabric is so cute and pretty.
Such pretty fabrics – I could make a lovely baby quilt with these to donate to my local women’s shelter.

Love the fabric line, it reminds me of sweet conversation hearts. I’d probably make a baby quilt with it.
My grandchildren are the sweetest thing in my life!
My grandchildren are the sweetest things. I love their sweet smiles and their precious hugs.
Pastels are my favorite. Thanks for the giveaway.
My sweet family … Hubby that’s always there, son who is never complains about me needing my designs digitized or computer updated and my three furry and snuggly 4 legged canine companions
How pretty!I would love to make something like that for my niece.
Just love the pastel color quilt! I am not a fan of bright colors… although we lived long enough in Asia which was such great time in our life – with all those colorful days where they always celebrate something. So I can say love traveling, eating and learn any kind of handcraft from different cultures. Tried a lot, but sticked with quilting 🙂 Best wishes from Paris!
The pastel Flame On is AWESOME! Reminds me of cotton candy which is my favorite sweet thing!
The pastels are wonderful! Things that are sweet in my life are my very special friends and family.
The designs on those fabrics are so sweet! What do I love? I love God, first and foremost…and then my hubby…and other relatives. Thanks and God bless! ILuvTheEucharist (at) aol.com
