Botanics Fabric by Carolyn Friedlander - Fat Quarter Bundle Giveaway!

Hello everyone!

I'm back from another whirlwind Quilt Market!  It was a lot of fun, as usual.  Seeing all my quilty friends and all the beautiful fabrics and projects is a little bit surreal.  But, now I'm back and it's back to business!  Instead of doing one big Quilt Market roundup this time I'm going to tell you more about the lines of fabric closer to when they are ready to ship.

This month, one of my favorite lines from market is going to ship!  Botanics from Carolyn Friedlander for Robert Kaufman fabrics!  Botanics is Carolyn's follow up to the popular Architextures line.

 Botanics Fabrics at Pink Castle Fabrics

It has the same line-drawn feel as her last fabric line and again, really amazing color choices.  Carolyn really is a talented artist.  This line has a little bit of gold metallic ink on the Succulent prints to add an extra layer of texture and interest without going overboard.  AND Carolyn has made SIX 108" wide backing fabrics to go along with the line!  These are REALLY awesome!  They are all the crosshatch print that you see in the bottom left of the photo above which means they are very versatile and can be used with a lot of other projects and not just with her line of fabric!  

Carolyn is just as awesome as her fabrics!  I'm really excited that she has agreed to come and teach at Camp Stitchalot next November (2014)!!!

I was able to pick up some of Botanics early and I was really impressed with the selection of "low volume" prints in this line.  This is great for creating secondary patterns in quilts.  I decided to play around with the values in this line for the quilt I'm making.  It's a traditional courthouse steps quilt using 2" strips that I cut on the Accuquilt.  

 Botanics Quilt by Just a Bit Frayed - Carolyn Friedlander's Botanics at Pink Castle Fabrics

We now have Botanics for PRESALE at Pink Castle Fabrics!  This line will be shipped at the very end of November 2013.  I am giving away a bundle from Quilt Market this week to one lucky winner!  I have a Full Fat Quarter bundle for you!


Just leave a comment on this post for a chance to win this bundle (open to International as well).  Make sure to follow our blog and sign up for our mailing list! AND make sure to head over to Pink Castle Fabrics and preorder Botanics!!!






I will choose a winner this Friday, November 8th!  If you didn't see the newsletter, this week take 20% off your order with code MARKET20 !
