Quokka Quilts Bloggers Choice Fat Quarter Bundle Contest

I saw this contest pop up a few days ago and thought I would be great to join in.
I'm sure you've seen that Laura at Quokka Quilts is holding the competition, Bloggers Choice Fat Quarter Bundle, there are so many entries already.
Unfortunately changing my hair to blonde caused me to have a huge blonde moment today. I could not for the life of me get my mosaic in Big Huge Labs to work. I finally called on the wonderful Susan from Canadian Abroad for help. Thankfully Susan was very helpful and I finally produced a mosaic.

There were so many beautiful fabrics to choose from at the Fat Quarter Shop, it was hard to narrow down to twelve prints and three solids.
I had fun. I love some of the combinations that others have come up with. I can see a bit of retail therapy coming on.


  1. Very sunny collection. I've been looking at dresdan plate patterns this morning. This palette would look good made up that way. Hmmm?

  2. Woohoo! Great mosaic! I would happily make a quilt with these. Love your choices!

  3. Great choices! I love the colors and that you have some cute "picture" prints and also some larger and smaller prints and some solids and geometrics - should make a terrific quilt!

  4. Very cute!!! Hope you had fun - thanks for entering. Love those scooters!

  5. Yay for Susan! Love those scooters and the wee Beetle in the bottom left corner

  6. It's the colours of the sunrise outside! Great combo!!

  7. Great range of colour and design options here! It would make a great quilt! Did you have to post your individual choices into flick'r first? (I have no idea how to do this in Picasa!!!)

  8. They would make such a bright sunny quilt, love those VDubs! It took me ALL day to work out how to make a mosaic... I love yours!


  9. Those are really nice :-) Good luck.

  10. LOVE it - thanks for the links back to the original fabrics. I'm totally in love with the Going Places print!
