July Giveaway - Lush Running Stitch Bundle

 We Have A Winner!
The winner is Mom2RyandSis who said "Cute Fabric!  Thanks for the chance to win!!"  Thanks to everyone who entered!
Lush by Patty Young for Michael Miller Fabrics
Happy July!  I know I'm a little late with this but better late than never, right?  This month we're giving away a Lush Running Stitch 1/2 yard Bundle (3 yards total) by Patty Young for Michael Miller.  These fabrics sold out so fast the first time they were in the shop and after a very long wait we finally have lots and lots of each color back in the shop.  Apparently they are very popular with the modern quilters who are buying yards and yards of every color to have in their stash.  And they look a little bit like Rainbow Sherbet to me so it seems like the perfect thing to give away during the heat of July!


Just leave a comment to be entered to win.  I'd love to know if you like making modern quilts?  What's your quilting style?  Personally, I like cutesy or shabby chic/romantic or traditional style quilts.  I haven't really ventured into really, really modern quilting yet.


And if you're wondering if you missed the June Giveaway.....nope....you didn't miss it.  I just never got around to posting it!  Between 18 year old Cassi Cat getting sick and Mr. Sew Fab's Birthday and then I got sick.....well...it just kind of slipped my mind!  Oops!


Anyway, leave your comment by midnight on Monday, July 16.  I'll pick a winner on Tuesday, July 17.....assuming I don't get a rock in my shoe or a thorn in my paw or a knot in my hair or some other random, lame excuse for always running late on things!


Good Luck and Happy Sewing,
Jenny

I haven't seen those fabrics yet. I would love to have some. I am making quilts for a girls ranch and these would be terrific.

that's alright .. we all run on our own time! june was not a god month ... it supposed to be summertime and summer is late! slow, too, it's the middle of july and the temp is 51, the days are grey, damp, if not wet.
i love colors, too, but i'm not really modern, just slightly outside the contempory, tradional, so-so line. am too old to say i'm such and such.

There is always something to get in the way of quilting. This time it was a horrific storm. After days of picking up branches and no power things are getting back to normal and I can use my sewing machine again! I tend to like traditional patterns using modern fabric.

Mary on Lake Pulaski said...

I just don't have a set style - try a little of everything including modern. This fabric would work great with some improv blocks!

Sallie said...

I'm more of a traditional quilter. Thanks for the great giveaway!

Amanda said...

I wouldn't call myself traditional butI'm nit totally sure I'm modern. Mostly I just make what makes me happy. And I make it colorful.

B Greene said...

I love modern quilting, but haven't ventured too far into it yet, but I will!!! Thanks for the chance to win!

robin said...

Love the fabrics! As for my quilting style - not sure if I have one! Probably a mixture of traditional and modern.

Diane N said...

Such pretty bright fabrics! Not sure what style I like the best...probably cutsey!

Lisa said...

Such gorgeous bright colours! I love incorporating bright and bold fabrics in my quilts. Can't say whether i'm traditional or modern but i definitely don't follow the rules :-)

Mimi said...

Love those bright and fresh colours. I would have to say that I lean more to Traditional style quilting. Thanks for the chance!!!

Teresa Silva said...

I love the bright happiness of these fabrics. I used to only make traditional style quilts but now I'm really getting in to the modern fabrics and quilting style. Love all of the color.

Xenia said...

Love that lush line! I like to make traditional quilts and especially enjoy any pattern with stars in it.

Mom2RyandSis said...

Aunt Marti said...

Yes! Yards and yards -- I've gotta go shopping!

I like making modern quilts as well as other types. I guess my style might be called eclectic. Love the fabrics in the giveaway! Thanks for the chance!

Cecilia said...

I'm not really sure what a modern quilt really is, but I like bright colors with traditional blocks. Thanks for the giveaway and I hope July is a better month for you.

Sunnybec said...

I love shabby chic and thought I only liked traditional quilts, but I received some free scraps from Art Gallery Fabrics in purple and lime green and decided to make a picnic quilt.. OMG I love it, so maybe I like both just didn't have the courage to buy it and find out! Linda

WandaFish said...

These fabrics really look lush! I love bright colours and modern fabrics but also like to try out traditional quilt blocks.
Thanks for the giveaway!

Kristen said...

Wow, what lovely colors. I've not seen those yet and now I'll keep a look out at my lqs.

I'm not sure what kind of quilter I am. Think I just make what makes me happy.

Josueh53 said...

I love making olourful memories for my 4 granddaughters. Priceless to see their faces when I finish their quilts.

sandra said...

Hi jenny I hope you are feeling better now. I am starting to get some interest in Modern Quilts and I am loving all the colors.

Joyce said...

Right now, I am trying all kinds of quilting...don't have a real favorite, but so love those colors! Thank you!

scottylover said...

I'm definitely a traditional quilter but have been wanting to try some of the modern patterns and fabrics.

Sorry your June was so bad. I hope July is much better!

Tiffany said...

I like modern quilting, but do traditional quilts as well. I think a healthy mix of everything is fun! :D

Debra Lee said...

I love the running stitch motiff!

Fran said...

I'm a modern quilt fan - it is the style of quilting that first got me interested in making quilts. And I fell in love with this fabric bundle the first time I saw it = thanks for the chance to win!

Dana Gaffney said...

I started out modern, but more and more I'm moving towards traditional blocks, but in nice bright modern colors. That fabric is wonderful.

Vicki in MN said...

I haven't seen those fabrics, but they sure look yummy. I have always been a traditional quilter, but I am really liking a whole lot of the modern stuff I am seeing and started piecing some a couple months ago. It's like a whole new world opend up! Thanks for the chance at the giveaway it would be awesome to have them in my stash!

Denise in PA said...

Where have I been? i haven't seen these yet! They are awesome. I'm all over the place with quilting - traditional, modern, cutsey - right now I'm more in a modern-ish phase though. Thanks so much for the chance to win!

Tracy said...

Modern is growing on me but I do love these colors!

Jennifer Gail said...

I like 30's reproductions.

Gill said...

I love this fabric line - and all things modern!

Billy'sgirl said...

These are gorgeous! I've used the Lush running stitch with the Lush Stargazer fabric (the pink with the turquoise) and it looks so tropical. I would love more of the running stitch in all the colors!
Thanks for the giveaway.

Lee Ann L. said...

I think I'm modern traditional -- combination of both. Love these fabrics! Thank you for a chance to win.

Anne Andrew said...

What fun bright colors. They would really brighten a wet dreary rainy winter here in OZ.

Annelies said...

I have always been a "shabby chic" kind of quilter, but these new colors have bit me too!!!

LisaAnn said...

I am pretty eclectic as a quilter and like to combine techniques and styles.

Sue said...

Love this fabric! It would look great on my modern style quilts.

Denny1600 said...

I've made one modern quilt and blocks for a group wonky modern quilt. On the modern quilt, I liked the fresh, clean look of the white background. On the group wonky blocks, I have to keep reminding myself to use solids. I like the look.

hueisei said...

I love the fabrics. I love stitching quilt now.

Marcia W. said...

I've made one almost modern style quilt using the Bloggers Block-a-Palooza and Modern Block QAL blocks. I like all kinds of quilts. This is the first introduction to this collection of fabrics and they are wonderful. Thanks for the giveaway. Your e-newsletter prompted me to check your blog too (usually go to shop and read newsletter).

DeeAnn S said...

I like traditional best. I'd love to work these fabrics into a quilt. Thanks.

Becky S. said...

I would say I'm a traditional quilter.
Thanks for the chance to win. The Lush fabrics are so pretty and summery.

Karrie S said...

I just started quilting, and have used mostly squares: like charm sized, mixed with sashing. I kinda do my own thing. When I become better (I have only done the tops), I will definitely try all the different styles. Thanks for the chance to win :)

free indeed said...

I too prefer the subdued colors and shades of shabby chic. I have ventured into some modern quilting; blocks that are wonky or raw edged, but they aren't my favorite.

kbzelazny said...

Love that fabric. I make fabrics with bright colors. Thanks so much!

Janice said...

I love the colors, I just started collecting fiesta ware & the colors remind me of the fabric colors. They would look nice in a table runner or quilt.

Sandyser said...

I would love to have this bundle for my stash. I consider myself more of a traditional quilter, but love some of the modern quilts. Thanks for the opportunity to win.

green23 said...

Gorgeous. No wonder they are popular.

LisaT said...

I am like you, havent really ventured into modern quilts but I have seen some beauties.

Marcia said...

Wow, those colors gets one creative juices flowing. Hope your month ends on a positive note

Marcia said...

wow what a selection, gets one's creative juices flowing. Hope your month goes along smoothly

Pamela said...

Oh my - be still my beating heart! I've just jumped on the Modern Quilt bandwagon and all of my fabric stash is looking decidedly Not modern. These would be heaven on a stick (or in a cupboard, in my case)!

Michelle Hudak said...

I'm new to quilting but I think I'll tend to be a more modern quilter only because wonky angles and funky patterns and colors are a bit more forgiving...traditional quilts (beyond basic blocks, that is) need someone with more precise skills than I possess right now. I'm sure my lines are going to be off and my seams a bit off-kilter for awhile.

Thanks for the chance, the fabric is gorgeous.

Wanda said...

I think my style is both modern and traditional. It just depends on the fabric if you know what I mean.

Nicole J said...

Wowsers! I would love this pack! Trying to build up my bright stash again as I am always running out and these are perfect! I make just about anything from modern to primitive. Just depends on my mood and the pattern.

Sew Very Sherry said...

I absolutely like modern quilting. I'm a member of a modern quilt guild in Iowa and it's refreshing to see so many views of what modern quilting is all about. You're right about needing solids for a modern stash. Thanks for the giveaway opportunity.

Valerie said...

These would be wonderful to help build my stash! I tend to be a more traditional quilter, but I love some of the more modern fabrics.

Pippa Parsons said...

Ive always been traditional although my fav quilts are the bright ones, these are gorgeous fabrics

thecalicocorner said...

My favorite quilts are ones that are based on traditional quilt blocks. I am partial to quilts with a pink & green color scheme. I recently won a modern quilt block book & am almost ready to venture into the 'modern' world!!

Cathy said...

I like to do different styles, letting the fabrics help me decide. These fabrics are awesome and could be fun in both traditional and very modern styles. Thank you for a chance to have some more summer fun!

Beth said...

I would say I make mostly modern quilts - sometimes using traditional designs with a modern twist.

bonnie said...

I might be too late...but I love this fabric and I mostly do modern style quilts.
